周杰倫 (Jay Chou): Mine Mine

I promised Misaki-chan that I would recommend more CPop songs, so let me start with my favorite one from Jay Chou's latest album "Exclamation": Mine Mine.

I don't know if there's a separate category for CPop by Taiwanese Pop Stars, because he’s singing in Mandarin and Tai-gi, Taiwan’s National(?) Language. But when I first heard this song in Hong Kong? I fell in love~ The beats, the lyrics, the dance moves… Even if I don’t think Jay Chou is that handsome, he’s at least nice to look at. And that piano is absolutely gorgeous!

In any case, Jay Chou is singing about a girl he loves so much that he almost wants to spoil her. Helping her pay for her ticket, helping her with her umbrella when “it’s already open”… all these chivalrous things seem strange to her, but he wants to do so because she’s his. Thus, “Mine Mine”.

And that to see her angry face is like winter everyday for him.

My translation is far from accurate, because I only know a few words, but I think this is half of the story of this song. He was also saying that if it was ok, when they have fights, not to tell her friends about it… Because later he would not be able to face them.

So Misaki-chan! How did I do? My translation is probably bad at best, so please ignore me! Maybe I should write about a more upbeat song next time!


  1. ZOMG!!! I LOVE IT!!!! ^____________^

    I've always loved Jay Zhou's songs cos they're distinctly unique and easy on the ears, and you can listen to them over and over and over....

    Thanks so much for sharing!!!!

  2. Haha, glad to know! :) I didn't know about Jay Chou until I went to Hong Kong. xD I thought his Chinese sounded strange until I listened carefully and realized it was in Tai-Gi! xDDD

    He's indeed really unique~ I love most of his songs from his latest album~~ <3 And yeah, they're on repeat in my mp3 player, haha! xD
