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!

Something's come up unfortunately, hope to cone next week!

Hi guys! I can't make this evenings session but I hope to join you in the coming weeks, once my pinyin pronunciation is up to scratch. Regards, Lincoln
Hi, are you planning to cover all the songs? Or is there is a priority order?

Hi Pin-Nee - hopefully we will do all of them (the meeting usually lasts 2 hours) - the Chinese songs are quite short (but complex) - Eminem is long (but simple) - and Just Like a Woman not too hard and not too long. Anyway, we can discuss at the meeting the priority - if you have a particular one you'd like to cover first, please say

Will watch out for future sessions. Thanks.
Sorry I won't be able to make it to this meeting (and the ones in the next 3 weeks) as I am going home for a short break. See you all when I come back in September! Hope you have a good time!
