Reading Meetup (Faye Wong, Jay Chou, Eminem and Bob Dylan songs)

This week we will do songs again: Faye Wong/Theresa Teng "Dan Yuan Ren Cheng Jiu" (which is in fact an 1000 year old poem - read about it here), Jay Chou's "Hair Like Snow" (发如雪), Eminem's Beautiful, and the Bob Dylan song Just Like a Woman that we didn't get round to last week.

PDF with translations and pinyin

What usually happens is we use the room above the pub and share the cost of the room(usually between £2-£3 per person).

I cannot be certain of the quality of the translations here - but they look ok - anyway, we can discuss them at the meeting!
