I just realized that a true Chinese classic was missing from this sharethread: the famous/infamous “小蘋果” by the Chopsticks Brothers (筷子兄弟) with its own Wikipedia page:
Little Apple (song) - Wikipedia. Here is the youtube video for the song itself (the video is not great but the sound is OK):

and here is its extended version with the beginning that provides more context:

Mr. Miss (先生小姐)'s 明天的烦恼交给明天 (an a cappella version):

with lyrics:

别担忧还要再过多久 才能过你想要的生活
把明天的烦恼交给明天今天别想了 以后再说

别再问他会爱你多久 未来有谁说得准呢
把明天的烦恼交给明天今天别想了

未来走一步看一步没什么大不了的
没有翻不了的山坡 没有过不去的河

别人的看着总是好的 自己的又怕哪天搞丢了
把明天的烦恼交给明天今天别想了

别担心十年八年以后 将来的问题到时候再说
每一天过得轻松一点别想太多 把明天的烦恼交给明天
今天别想了
今天别想了
今天要快乐
今天别想了

All of the songs from this album are really quite good, too. Probably one of the best albums from Taiwan in the past couple years.

I’ve been listening to some Cantonese music eventually. The cool thing is that if you are familiar with Mandarin and listen as you read along with the lyrics, you can see the high degree of similarity between the languages.

Try as I might to avoid it for the sake of focusing more on Mandarin, I think I’ll end up learning some Cantonese at some point soon. Funnily enough, the entire reason I even became interested in China, Taiwan, and Chinese languages was due to watching artsy Hong Kong films back in college. Slowly coming full circle.
