When I woke up it was with an echo of Anita Mui (梅艷芳 'mui yim fong') in my mind's ear, a song from her hit movie 'Rouge'. No, I shall not post a youtube, because the protectors of copyrights keep shutting down user accounts, and anything embedded today might well be gone tomorrow.
The song floats under the same name as the movie: 胭脂扣 ('yin ji kau').
Instead, I'll opportunistically post the lyrics.
胭脂扣 - 梅艷芳
The movie (also entitled 胭脂扣) is well worth seeing more than once. Both Anita Mui, who plays the courtesan, and Leslie Cheung (張國榮 'jeung kwok wing'), her lover, are no longer among the living.
But their memory lives on.
It really was a golden age of cinema.
This and other songs can easily be found on the internet, as well as movie clips, and Canto-pop by various artists. Please do so.
