李佳薇 - 煎熬 (Cover by Gary Song & Javin Tham)


She prided us the Malaysian on her victory in 超級星光大道 7th Season. Jess Lee 李佳薇 had her album debuted with the hit song 煎熬 that poses the challenge that every female singer faces as they’re trying to reach the F#5 note in the chorus. What enthralling is how she sang it without using falsetto, which until today I never witness any of my friends able of pulling off.

It’s been 3 years since the release, but we still want to do it because it’s nice (no actually, it’s just because Gary said he wanted to do it, he’s a bit laggy in terms of knowing Mandopop). The MV is, however, ‘creative’.

We transposed 9 semitones down to B minor, and finding that it’s too exhausting in the chorus, Gary asked me to go down 2 semitones more to A minor. We did actually fully record one A minor version, but finding that it’s too low in the chorus, Gary said we should go back to B minor. Good job Gary…

Hope you’ll like it. :)
