Bevlyn’s Thoughts: 月圆花好 (Full Moon Blooming Flowers)
This wedding has the most fusion songlist I’d ever sung! It’s not a bad thing at all, because I’m quite sure nobody felt left out by the live band! To prove my point, we started off with the French song titled “Le festin” which is taken off the movie soundtrack ‘Ratatouille‘,, and it could not be a more suitable song for the 1st dish because it means “the feast”! Here’s the translation of the lyrics:
We also sang some really old classics, and I have to admit I had a hard time learning, because songs of that era have structures that are so different from even shanghai jazz. Luckily all went well, and I think people were surprised to see and hear a modern band perform these songs! Check out 天上人间 (In Heaven & On Earth) and 凤凰于飞 (Phoenixes In Flight)
And I think that this song is getting more popular at weddings (Today was a fairytale by Taylor Swift)
To top it off the fusion songlist, we even did this Japanese classic ‘Everything’ by Misia (thank you Felene for requesting, Ein and I were so high to be able to perform this song):
Usually I look toward the guests when I perform and turn back to the pianist when we go from one song to the other; for this wedding I was surprised consecutively – a whole family of mother and 3 children crowded behind Ein on piano, and when I turn around after every song, there seemed to be more and more people behind the piano!
Felene looked astounding in her pink gown, and Lionel was half red in the face by the time we finished our set. We wish this cute couple the pink of health and the joys of love in their marriage! Congratulations!
