I Should Have Known Better.. in Hokkien!



In my list of favourite Beatles covers (and there are many!), this would be somewhere near the top. Infectiously catchy Hokkien cover! And plus, 'I Should Have Known Better' happens to be one of my favourite Beatles songs. This track was taken from an EP of 4 Beatles covers sung by this same pair. Interestingly, the EP's title, translates to - 'The Bachelor EP - Hokkien Mad Man Songs'!

This is fantastic. Thank you. Please say you are going to post the other four tracks from the EP, especially 'I Saw Her Standing There'. Best wishes.

They sing terribly bad.
I prefer to thank you for Newton-John and Kong Ling.
No offense.

I take back what I said about finding Asian music difficult to listen to. This is... phenomenal. I LOVE it. I've never heard anything quite like it. Thanks so much.

It cannot have effect in actual fact, that is exactly what I think.
