Yea! I finally got my hands on the freshly released Mayday Nowhere Concert CD album! Thanks to my new Taiwanese friends, they were so kind to buy the albums from Chiayi and fly with Mayday to meet me! I ripped apart the plastic wrapping once I received the album.
The song list for the 2-CD album:
- OAOA (現在就是永遠).
I think the song list is very comprehensive. Listening to the album is like attending the concert again! I felt so ‘high’ as I listened to the live tracks. I love every single track and each of them evokes a unique set of memory. I can almost experience the feelings which I had when I enjoyed the songs during the live concerts. I am just a little disappointed that they did not include the fantastic medley of ‘讓我照顧你+最重要的小事’. I was blown away by the medley when I first heard it on 23 December 2011. Tears almost burst through my ‘crying-resistant’ eyes when I listened to Ashin’s tender voice. The transition from ‘讓我照顧你’ to ‘最重要的小事’ is flawlessly! The two songs are made in heaven! Ashin said before that he does not really sing ‘讓我照顧你’ live as the lyrics are too ‘romantic’ and thus ’embarrassing’. Hence, I was surprised that they included the song in the set list. I hope they will include that track somewhere in the future. Take out your tissue and watch this ‘fan-made’ version of the song…
One of the best track is the extended version of ‘憨人’. Ashin’s speech at the end is so moving and inspirational. I think I heard the exact speech in Kaohsiung last December. The ‘啦啦啦啦…啦啦啦啦’ atmosphere is just so electrifying! I had goosebumps whenever the entire audience sang ‘啦啦啦啦…啦啦啦啦’ and the boys just looked at the fans with so much emotions.
Ashin also said something very moving in this version!
The DNA version of the ‘出頭天 + 憨人’ is also very touching!
‘憨人’ clearly epitomizes the true Mayday spirit. It captures the essence of what Mayday represents, what Mayday believes and why the fans love Mayday so much. Like Mayday, we are all ‘憨人’… Mayday accurately and bravely sings out our sentiments! Their ‘憨人’ success gives us a glimmer of hope as we plough through our ‘憨人’ existence…
我有我的路 有我的夢 夢中的那個世界 甘講伊是一場空
