[CHI] Hong Kong Themes and Soundtracks
« on: March 30, 2011, 11:18:19 AM »
It seems we didn't have such a topic. So here it is! What's your favorite hong kong movie theme or soundtrack? Share your thought with us!

To get things started, i introduce my current project. Especially this year i'm working on several hk movie themes medleys.
I'm trying to cut many vocal and instrumental hk themes together. These medleys are a tribute to the memorable themes in hong kong movies.

There are actual 15 Medleys online!


This brings back memories.

GOOD mix Tao Priest. I love Medleys. Esp. ones that last 10-12 minutes, eh Masa? :lol:

Great thread :thumbup

You fucker :lol:

Johnnie To and John Woo have some really dope ass themes. Like in A Better Tomorrow, Leslie Cheung sings the best anthems:


Just haunting.

and in Johnnie To's "The Odd One Dies" with Takeshi Kaneshiro and Carmen Lee had the quirkiest soundtrack

Didn't see The Odd Ones Dies

Sounds really good ^^

Second most awesome movie theme from George Lam is the one from King Of Beggars! Rapping George kicks ass.

Jackie Chan - You Cai Hua

This song is really down-to-earth and touching.
