For this episode of Choice Picks, we have a VERY special playlist for all the queens out there. Take it all in, because this International Womens' Day playlist (for short: WOMANdopop) is just for you!
Sweet, Sassy, Subliminal, Skeptical... women have brought so much depth, emotion and meaning to many of our favourite contemporary Mandopop tracks. Old and new; from A-mei to Jolin Tsai, from Ann Bai to Sue, we've got it ALL. Send this playlist to an important woman in your life and let's prepare to get EMPOWERED, Mandopop stylez.
Want to know what influences Hong Kong singer-songwriter Yoyo Sham's uniquely calming and thoughtful sound? This is the playlist for you. Curated by Yoyo herself for Asian Pop Weekly, she has a song for every moment of the day; from the moment you rise to the moment you fall asleep. Sprinkle these in your playlist throughout the day and add a little Yoyo to your routine!
01. India Arie - I am Light
Sometimes when I get up in the morning I’m still tired, this is the first song I’d want to listen to, start the day on a good note
02. Jacob Collier - Hideaway
Every time I listen I hear a new detail, it’s so intricate and too good!
03. Iron and Wine - Claim Your Ghost
A warm voice that allows you to quieten down, when I saw him live in 2018 it was unforgettable
04. Ghost Note - Swagism
A band member of Snarky Puppy’s band; when I want a little groove or want to move a little I listen to this
05. Roy Hargrove - Crazy Race
I love every song in this album, one musician who left us in 2018
06. Lisa Hannigan - An Ocean and a Rock
My favourite song in five time
07. Flight of the Conchords - Think about it
A very humorous song, when you want a laugh you can take a listen
08. 陳奕迅 Eason Chan - Run
A song for when you can’t sleep
09. 岑寧兒 Yoyo Sham - Scrambled Eggs Blues
A song to listen to when you’re making breakfast
