song of infatuation
Agnes Chan was a singer and actress from Hong Kong, hitting it big as a teen folk singing star in the early 70's. She wrote this song for one of her first films, "The Generation Gap". She recorded this when she really was 16! I think her young age shows in the lyrics somewhat.
Agnes Chan - You Are 21, I Am 16
Agnes continues to record today. Visit her official site, here.
A fan site with a *very* comprehensive bio.
If you like music from the HK 60's scene, this cd box set should make you very happy. A 4-CD box set from Diamond Records that features the best of The Fabulous Echoes, Kong Ling, Teddy Robin & The Playboys, Joe Junior, Sam Hui & The Lotus, Anita Mui, Danny Diaz & The Checkmates, The Mystics, The Wynners, and more. With 72 tracks in all! And it is amazingly affordable too. I just ordered mine. =)
