Warning: This is a post bitching about some stranger replied my comment on youtube. For those who think its pointless to continue reading, you may proceed/continue anything you're to do.
Things started this way. For those who don't know, there's a show on the television called 'Astro Star Quest' and there's a contestant called Nicole, singing Adele's 'Set Fire to the Rain'
and for those of you who don't know, IM A FREAKING HUGE FAN OF ADELE!!!!!! i listened to her album '21' for countless times. over and over again.
AND!!!! This girl, Nicole, she sang my favourite singer's song! of course, we ALL know that singing Adele's song is like a hell of hard song to sing it decently if you dont have certain level of skills with you.
Well, my thoughts of her performance for that episode was first, DAYUM MY EARS HURT!!! then, erm, it was okay, she's got her own style in this song. which was in a good way. probably the reason that made my ears hurt was her pronunciation. then i went and listen again, and then i heard something weird, and went back to that part and listen again, i heard 'alwis win alwis win' instead of 'always win always win' DAFUQ???!!!! and i thought, nevermind, i'll continue to listen the whole thing, and again, i heard something weird, the chorus, the typical malaysian chinese pronunciation of the word 'rain' as 'ran' and in this case, even worse, she didnt even pronounce the 'n' behind, instead, she sang something like 'raaehae'
then again, few seconds later, right before she enter the repeat of the chorus, she pronounce 'name' as something sounded like 'nahen'..???
and lastly, she sang 'time' as 'tie'
and this is why i dont really like to listen most of the chinese singing english songs.
they somehow just ruin the song. it's either they have all the funny pronunciations which they think its very cool, or they sing it in a very chinese way, or BOTH!
so, i made a comment under that video asking the her to work out her pronunciation. and there's a stranger, he replied ot my comment and deleted several times. (maybe he's got no balls to post it up long enough for me to see)
this is what he commented:
"do not forget that there are different accents in different places.
I am pretty sure that you have never talked to any american or white man before, nor listened to the original version by Adele."
i mean, HELLO SIR! if you've got the balls to reply my comment, WHY DONT YOU HAVE THE BALLS TO POST IT UP LONGER SO THAT I CAN REPLY YOU? AND!!!! your comments on my notificaitons. email and on youtube. -.- and don't you know that there's a type of human called 'the stalkers'?
btw, i was pissed the moment after i read your reply, but few seconds later, i think you're an idiot, for assuming me as the never heard Adele's song, never ever talked to a white man before. come on, i talk to whites at least once every year. how can i not know? i watch 'the voice' from both US and UK, how can i not know? i watch BGT & AGT, how can i not know? i probably listen more english songs than you do, i listen more youtube covers than you do. most of the songs u listened was from the Astro Star Quest, China & Taiwan processed songs, i wonder, do you even listen to covers?
it is definitely the biggest flaw for YOU to assume i never heard Adele's version. -.- or never talked to ANY whites.
if the 'you' im mentioning, ever come across this post, i'd say, you are pathetically funny by making such an assumption. singing an english song with at least a proper or decent pronunciation is nothing esle but a respect for the song. it applies to any songs in other languages.
