TVB songs

83 posts in this topic

Hi guys and gals,

 

You may or may not be aware there is an ongoing discussion re the theme song of "Triumph in the skies II" (衝上雲宵II) sung by George Lam (林子祥). Apparently there were 50 complaints on this song after the opening episode, when the song was criticized for having old-fashioned lyrics and out-of-style melodies.

 

Rumours has it that the producer had recommended Chilam Cheung ("Captain Cool") to sing the theme song

 

Triumph in the Skies 2 had a record-breaking premiere on Monday, July 15. The first episode captured a 99 % appreciation index score and averaged 32 points, peaking to 35. The second episode averaged 33 points and peaked to 34. Clearly the song didn't hurt its ratings !!

 

What do you think ?

 

Do you have another song that you think its worse than this one? :95:

 

In my humble opinion, I can see why this song was picked. Its a powerful ballad of remembrance and comradery which is what this series is sending out to me (besides the usual TVB cliche storylines).

 

Ok let me write the first comment. I think some or most people see aviation as a sign of togetherness, getting back to your loved ones, so the song sounds "old fashion" and passionate. Also I guess that some of the older pilots actually also flown in war time, making this a poignant reminder of the past. I believe some of the scenes shot, in particular in England (where I am !) pays tribute to the aviation museum.

the theme song and the storyline is going downhill. After 3 eps. I give up on this series already...

I like the first theme song more than this...feel the first one more suitable to the drama

I don't think it's the worst songs, I just think they're way too slow and in a way it doesn't really fit into the sequal.

I do have to say I hated the song when it first aired, but after maybe 10 episodes in I started getting used tot he song. I do however like the theme song from TITS better, much more catchy compared to this version.

I think the song by Eason was more suitable. I guess each generation has its preference in song style...

the song was good but the performance of the song was not so good. but if they give it to chilam "mr. cool" it may be better.

I think the lyrics of the song is pretty good and it suits the drama series. Should get others to sing the song instead of George Lam. The way he sings the song is like singing for the movie, "Wong Fei Hong".

Triumph in the skies II, I wouldn't say its the worst song. I think it would have been so much better if Chilam sang it
