莫文蔚/Karen Mok

She, is, an acquired taste.

I have never found her pretty and when I first heard her sing, I felt this odd distaste in my mouth. Just what is that weird voice?

A couple of years on, and I am a huge fan. I like her attractive, modern and quirky look, her never-ending legs, her style, her confident attitude and most importantly, I so love her songs and the way she sings. Her voice isn’t saccharine sweet or strong but there is just this whimsical, poignant yet almost detached quality to it that moves me. Her rendition of love songs is just, well, extremely distinct, and heartbreaking. If I were to name some of my favourite female voices in the Mandopop industry, hers would definitely be in the top 5:).

Her cover of 外面的世界. It is just so, so sad.

If you are suffering in a relationship, you’ve just broken up, or you are simply missing that special someone in your life, and you actually need catharsis, her songs are the way to go.
