15. What kinds of music are most popular in China?
Yes, I am a big fan of music all these years. I sometimes listen to music before sleeping at night for one hour and when I am driving, which will both help me relax. I am very fond of pop music from Taiwan and Hong Kong, and I also frequently listen to some American pop singers, like the Backstreet Boys. I can feel the energy when I hear the tune.
Personally, I am interested in the traditional instrumental music, like erhu, mixed with pianos and guitars.
I always get time to listen to these music during the weekends. It is an impressive combination that can give you a both nostalgic and modern feelings. I firstly encountered this type of music when I was driving and listening to the radio five years ago, I forgot the name, but the tune sounded really amazing.
Oh, yes, I saw a pop singer performance several years ago. It was a really memorable night as the live performances were very exciting. I remembered that after the song, when the singer talked to the audience, everyone cheered and clapped crazily. It
made me feel so cool being there.
Unfortunately, I had not learned to play any type of musical instrument when I was a little boy. I remembered that in schools, teachers always told us to put all energy into studying and preparing exams. The music lessons, along with physical exercises and paintings, were not so important as the schools claimed to be. I really felt pity when I grew up.
I didn’t get enough time to listen to music because I had to give all time to study. That was my biggest pity during my childhood, so when I got to the university, what I firstly did was to buy me a new mp3 player.
I believe currently in China, the most popular music is pop music. There are many famous pop singers now, releasing numerous albums every year, and they are always trendy for a period of time.
