If I Become A Memory

It was quite a while since I started to listen to Tank Lu's latest album, The 3rd Round. Not sure why it's named so but, I guess most probably it's because this is his 3rd album. And it didn't take long for me to identify my most favourite song; 如果我变成回忆 (Ru Guo Wo Bian Cheng Hui Yi) which means if I become a memory.

I felt different about the title of the song. I don't know why but, I was wondering why would a song has this kind of title. If I become a memory.. Sounds very deep to me. But, I ignored my thoughts and continued to enjoy the song rather than the meaning of it because I couldn't understand the Chinese words in the song. I'm 'Chinese-buta'.

Then, last night, on my way back in the bus to college, I was talking to my classmates. They asked me to sing a song, so I sang this song. They were super excited coz' it's their favourite song too. And they started to tell me the meaning of the song.

The singer, Tank Lu, underwent a heart surgery. He has severe arrythmia, a genetic heart disease where the heart beats irregularly. (Info taken from here.) And according to my friend, he was at the verge of death. But, he managed to survive, obviously. So, this song, as what I was told, is about his feelings during that time. Now, I finally understand why it was named so. This is such a nice song. It really touched my heart when my friend explained every meaning of the verse to me.

Here's a video of the song:

Hope you guys enjoy the song! Btw, there are some other songs like 阿门 (Amen) which I really like. Do give it a try!
