眼睛 在忙著看風景
嘴巴 想念著甜品
這雙耳朵 只想保持安靜

頭髮 在纏著它自己
呼吸 在挑剔空氣
這個腦袋 知道何時微醺

田馥甄, Hebe’s real name and also her stage name as solo artist has always been on the level of what I call Goddess.

From a creative perspective, she does very little wrong in my eyes, constantly expanding and growing out of her own comfort zone and interests, and winning over those who doubt her, or would fix her down because of her S.H.E affiliation.

要什麼道理
身體髮膚 天生愛自己

有什麼邏輯
想愛別人 何止要運氣

先善待這身體 靈魂再相遇
先善待這顆心 再懂別的心

I’ve been following S.H.E since the early 2002-2003 years, listening to their music and watching their shows as they grew into women, and as I grew into a woman myself.

The process of watching an artist grow into her craft, became a big part of me growing into my craft.

I have always been grateful that there were women that I could see, that I could like and aspire to, doing music and performing in the spotlight. I have not always enjoyed their collective sound, but I have always loved their collective presence.

When 田馥甄 first debuted on her own as a solo, my heart was won over completely.

眼睛 會是誰的風景
嘴巴 被誰當甜品
這雙耳朵 為誰不再安靜

頭髮 為誰放開自己
呼吸 能被誰呼吸
這個腦袋 知道讓誰微醺

The lyrics that move me again and again are lyrics where you can hear another person’s journey. Whether it be attached to techno, ballad, acoustic, funk, jazz or any other melodic sound, whether performed in rap, song, autocorrect or spoken.

If music is something you choose to soundtrack your footsteps, then these are the songs that stay with me.
田馥甄 is an artist that will walk with me.

要什麼道理
身體髮膚 自會有靈犀

有什麼邏輯
想愛的人 也在愛自己

I have come to an understanding that the music we choose helps us love ourselves.
I am thankful that all these songs I am sharing are songs that take care of me in different ways.

先善待這身體 靈魂才相遇
先善待這顆心 就懂誰的心

就懂誰的心
