இ Oohs and Aahs

Now Everyone Can Sing! You do not need to know any Chinese or lyrics at all. How about singing this song in your next karaoke session all you need is [..]
a--o,a--o e, a se di, a se do, a se da g3 di g3 do, a se di, a se da g3 do, a--[a yi ya yi yo,] a se di g3 [dai, da g3 dai, da g3 dai, da g3 da g3 di g3 dai, da g3 dai, da g3 do,][..] Not possible? A Yi Ya Yi Yo some are not completely convinced? Bananaz Beleaf It Or Not..Have a go..click on the video clip for the Oohs and Aahs. The lyrics doesn’t mean a thing only “嗯、哦、唉、哟……”. Basically this song tries to mimic by showing faces of a happy person, sad, anger and so on. She is sensational and delivers it superbly.



Imagine a song without lyrics could win her the Best Singing Award of European World Music Awards in 2009. It became a hit on December 1, 2010 during a Grammy Award presentation and remained as the Grammy's best music for three weeks and the song name is 忐忑 pinyin:*tǎntè* meaning "Disturbed or Uneasy". She is a Chinese folk music soprano singer who hails from Guizhou Province. Her name is Gong Linna 龚琳娜, born in Guiyang in 1975, who won the Best Female Singer at China Central Television National Young Singer TV Grand Prix in 2000. It was in 2010 where hundreds of thousands of netizens watched her video clip singing 忐忑*tǎntè* that took China by storm.

Some interesting 'discovery' while doing up this post with the two Chinese words. By itself 忐 and 忑 ma favorite companion the MDBG dictionary translated both as 'nervous' but when combined 忐忑 pinyin:*tǎntè* it means "Disturbed or Uneasy".

Noticed the word 忐*tǎn* where it comprises of 'Up上*shàng*' at the top and 'Heart心*xīn*' as the lower word.  Now look at 忑*tè* the 'Up' has been replaced with 'Down下*xià*' on top of 'Heart心*xīn*'. So the Ups and Downs inevitably perturbed the Heart resulting a 'disturbed or uneasy' person.

Cutest little 6 year old Chinese girl - on China's Got Talent with her 忐忑 pinyin:*tǎntè*. The pretty judge asked her why she chose a song without lyrics. Little girl replied saying there is except they are 亂七八糟 *luàn qī bā zāo* 'everything in disorder'. Sorry Bananaz not able to translate the full conversation but judging by the faces of laughter with tears you shall get the message, coz actions speak louder than words. Kindly standby your tissue paper after you ROTFL *roll on the floor laughing* when your heart is perturbed.

lena said...

both the woman and the little girl really terror! but the girl's performance is outstanding and funny too with her facial expressions! she is too cute! ah, i just remember this song too..by moustache george lam..very old song..with numbers only..30624700, 30624770....

wenn said...

she's cute but too bad, she didn't get it..

lina said...

Oh the facial expression on the little girl's face. Priceless!

lina said...

I bet the girl can get endorsement contracts or something? She's just to precocious. And she looks like a natural on stage. ^^

suituapui said...

Can't beat this stupid song I heard on the radio - the music would play (Boney M's Gotta go home) and at regular intervals, the singer would come in and say, "Barbra Streisand!" Can't believe people would record such songs and there would be people playing it on air... What's the world coming to?

Charmaine said...

I believe this kind of song will be trending in the future hahahaha(singing)

One said...

The first very the 'keng'! It sounded like Ka Lak Tai. (armpit) Her voice is fantastic. The little girl is very funny. She tried to imitate the eye expression. So sad to see her disappointed but her high pitch is absolutely scary.

MODERN ROBINSON CRUSOE said...

ROFL - The little gal is so cute & i can really laughed when she starts singing - It seems "sad" that judges buzzed her with the X

Nice video to share

MODERN ROBINSON CRUSOE said...

No doubt - China got many kind of talents in its vast population

[SK] said...

yeah, this is a very special phrase!! 忐忑, you got ups and downs in your heart, and both words must be used together else they don't mean anything alone..

[SK] said...

haha, so is Bananaz learning to sing that song already?? SK was trying to learn to sing that song, can maybe de-ge-da the song but never know what's the actual meaning!! but it's just not merely de-ge-da and ai-yee-yoh, the lyrics actually mean something.. time for you to do some research.. :D

[SK] said...

and they actually called this song 神曲 (literally the song of the god)!! i do find it a nice song, definitely no other singers will be able to sing as perfectly as her!! two thumbs up, plus two toe thumbs up for her~~ :D

Isaac Tan said...

ai ya yo.. ai ya yo !! I can sing like that also weh :) hahaha.. But really unique way of singing there.. wah

Isaac Tan said...

Oh noooooo, i just watched finish the little girl's one. Sadnessssssssssssssss :( they should give her, what lousy judges! GRRRRR

Bananazஇ said...

Lena இ Sad the cute little girl was not given another chance. Yeah remembered George Lam with his number song. Like his Wong Fei Hung song got a great voice.

Wenn இ Yalor they could have given her another chance.

Lina இ Most people were expecting the other judges to say YES but..

Bananazஇ said...

Suituapui இ Really! Which channel you often in? For me either Lite & Easy or 988.

Charmaine இ If you can see other video clips singing the song as well they are real funny to watch.

One இ Quite a perfect team, her husband is also a musician and for the little girl was hoping for at least two YES. Just too bad.

Bananazஇ said...

MRC இ Most would expect YES for the little girl she is so cute. With such a huge population of more than 1b they got better chances haha. tQ.

[SK] இ Saw the lyrics and was too long so didn't include in this entry. Oh the song got a 'nick' name. So the two words must be together to form a meaning. Yeah Gong Linna is terrific. You are planning to sing this song in karaoke? haha. tQ

Isaac Tan இ Ai ya yo haha got a new song to train for your next karaoke? Yalor geram the jugdes didn't give the little girl a chance.

Windsmoke. said...

I can't sing for nuts not even in the shower :-).

Daisy said...

Hahaha! The little girl is so cute. That was great. Thanks for sharing that, Bananaz. :-)

khengsiong said...

I am Chinese-educated, but never knew the pronunciation of these two characters. haha... Thanks.

Pete said...

ha ha ha, cute and lovely little girl!

reanaclaire said...

Nowadays a lot of child talents.. they should have a series on that.. Children Got Talent!

Hayley said...

I can't help but laugh everytime hearing/seeing people sing 忐忑.
China, what also got la!

Kian Fai Koh said...

I've been listening this song, I think their local people is very proud of the idol singing this song.

Actually this song need to use heck alot of energy and face expression to sing it out loud. To show that there is a wrath of the goddess.

Daniel Chiam said...

Hahahaha this is epic! Great share xD

fufu said...

tan te!! now i know how to pronounce these two characters haha

London Caller said...

Bananaz, you're out dated oledi lah.
Back in the 1970s, there was a Russian guy called Mr Trololo already made his debut singing ah yi ah oh.
You go Youtube Mr Trololo, you know lah.

foongpc said...

Wow!! A chinese song with absolutely no lyrics! I can finally sing a Chinese song for karaoke! LOL!!

foongpc said...

But then even without lyrics, it takes a lot of techniques to sing this properly - definitely not easy! : )

foongpc said...

The performer in the first video - she really has superb techniques and her facial expression wow! Excellent!

foongpc said...

Oh! The little girl so cute. Too bad she didn't win!

foongpc said...

Oh! This tǎntè word is very interesting! Thanks for sharing! : )

Leovi said...

Yes, Gong Linna is undoubtedly a great ability to communicate and move.

Bananazஇ said...

Windsmoke இ Bananaz can't sing in the shower too.

Daisy இ Pity the little girl didn't make it.

Khengsiong இ Most welcome we are learning day by day.

Bananazஇ said...

Pete இ Cute front toothless little girl haha

Reanaclaire இ Great idea 'Children Got Talent' only fair to them huh.

Hayley இ This song is a combination of expression of eyes and faces.

Bananazஇ said...

Kian Fai Koh இ Song of facial expression and need super memory to remember the 'lyrics' haha.

Daniel Chiam இ tQ Epic indeed

Fufu இ Yes now easy for Bananaz to remember the Ups & Downs of the Heart is tan te haha.

Bananazஇ said...

London Caller இ Brudder moi ann yong pun tik mien loi haha. Mr Trololo is a little plain easy going though no lyrics but still lupp tante by Gong Linna. 1970's Bananaz not born then. hehe.

Foongpc இ Great wish you pick up the song fast and ai ya yo in karaoke. Like the tǎntè words in Chinese got good meaning of ups and downs over the heart. Sama sama.

Leovi இ Gong Linna is simple the best in ai ya yo haha.

Sheoh Yan said...

I heard this song when I watched TVB Happy Birthday Awards. Both the best actor and actress sang a little bit of this song. Quite a very special song. Surprise to know that Bananaz would appreciate this song.

Bananazஇ said...

Sheoh Yan இ Bananaz lupp to listen to any nice song or music. You will be surprised even listen THR on radio all those Bollywood songs.

Jobless Girl said...

Interesting, this is something new.

suituapui said...

Your post title...sikit macam sound of sex! LOL!!!

Bananazஇ said...

Jobless Girl இ tQ for dropping by, do visit often.

Suituapui இ Really? Thought Bananaz surf and checked and double check then reconfirm before naming the title. Ooh & Aah is a Disney playhouse for children about Games & Activities leh. Its all in your mind, you DOM..as a man thinketh muahaha.

London Caller said...

Ha ha... Sure or not?
I thought in 1970s you already hit puberty, thinking about ah moi all day long, all night long?

I'm off to Switzerland & France tomorrow.
Come back bring you fondue ok? Ha ha...
Be good - I see you next week.

Rad Sujanto said...

OMG, this was so confusing! Hahahha

Well, when it comes to winning an award, luck plays a big role, too, sometimes! :D

I'm learning Japanese and will someday learn Mandarin :D

Bananazஇ said...

London Caller இ Was not born in 1970 is the truth born before lah. Whoa love fondue when first tasted it in Swiz it was love at first bite. You better be good in Swiz & France. merci beau coup.

Rad Sunjanto இ True luck plays 30%. Love to learn Jap too so desu nei. Hop in here often we can learn Mandarin together haha.

Sheoh Yan said...

Bananaz, hi 5, I love bollywood too. My phone ringtone is Zoobi Doobi, 3 idiots theme song. I just watched Salman Khan - Bodygaurd at Astro Fiesta ch151. By the way, I only listen to My FM and Lite and Easy.

HappySurfer said...

Wow, what a talent, Ms Gong. I think one needs a lot of stamina/chi to pull that thru - and a lot of practice. She deserves the award.

As for the little girl, ROFL. That was truly entertaining!

Thanks for sharing both videos, Bananaz.

Leovi said...

My heart goes very restless lately, your Chinese lessons interesting.

Rad Sujanto said...

I will need your help to practice with once I learn Mandarin hehehehe :p

My teacher told me once that 'horse' and 'mother' in Mandarin are the same word(?) but are pronounced with a different tone. No? I think it's 'ma'?

HappySurfer said...

Rad, Chinese is interesting, not only Mandarin but also in the dialects such as Hokkien or Cantonese. A slight inflection (intonation) completely changes the meaning.

For instance, the 'ma' you mentioned, if you go a notch higher from 'mother', it means 'to chide'. Btw, the words are written with a slight difference.

My two cents.

Bananazஇ said...

Sheoh Yan இ ♫Zoobi doobi zoobi doobi pum para
Zoobi param pum
Zoobi doobi zoobi doobi naache
Kyun pagal stupid maan♫..

haha cool ringtone..

HappySurfer இ The judges were ROFL but two said NO ia ya yo so sad for the little girl. sama sama

Leovi இ Rest a bit go slow haha.

Bananazஇ said...

Rad Sujanto இ Yeah the tone difference will mean something else which is quite close for 'ma'.

HappySurfer இ tQ. Lots of difference with Chinese pronunciation and even the strokes one dot or one stroke will change the word tremendously.

Leovi said...

Yes, no doubt that video very funny, that girl is a great artist.

FiSh said...

this kind of 'music' has been very popular quite some time ago.. i love watching the video than listening to their singing. lol

Latest: CNY Is Less Than 10 Days Away!

Bananazஇ said...

Leovi இ The lady is cool & the little girl is cute.

FiSh இ Ah so you are the visual type of person and not auditory.

Ricardo Miñana said...

Hello a pleasure to spend for your interesting space
happy weekend.

Life Ramblings said...

i admire those who can sing really well.

Life Ramblings said...

Life Ramblings said...

the lady is definitely talented and superb in every way.

Life Ramblings said...

the little girl is adorable.

Life Ramblings said...

lina said...

To Rad -
I tried learning Mandarin and Cantonese but gave up. My pronunciation is really bad. Now, I just settle with understanding part of what my Cantonese speaking colleagues talk. xD

Japanese would be easier. Really! xD

Merryn said...

STP can only think of sex.. hahaha..

Kesian the little girl. me sad leh like this :(

Casendra said...

Lrong said...

Very comical post... and first time for me to see these chinese characters... don't think they exist in Japanese...

Bananazஇ said...

இ இ இ Sorry guys had double red sore eye twice on the same right eye in a month and out of action. Unable to post a new entry and blog hop very often merely touch and go. Could be allergic to moisturiser, now must wash hands before bed so that the fingers don't contaminate the eyes during the rub without my knowledge.

HappySurfer இ Catching up lost time and clearing backlogs before bid g'bye to the Rabbit. Not able to be active in blogging eyes not cooperative haha.

Pete இ Kena *ang bak chew* again and this round double trouble within two weeks on the same right eye. Celebrating dragon year with lots of red mah haha.

Lrong இ Ah so desu kah no such lingo in nihohjin? haha.

lina said...

Bananaz,
How the sore eyes? Red gone already?

Leovi said...

I hope you have improved red-eye, is very annoying.

Ai Shiang said...

恭喜發財 新年好!

Bananazஇ said...

Lina இ The redness has gone but right eye now out of focus with split head aches on and off when too long on the keyboard. Need to get eye right checked after CNY when its completely healed.

Leovi இ Real annoying especially the focus has gone out slightly and eye dry all the time.

Ai Shiang இ tQ 恭喜發財 新年好 to you and family too. Have a great Dragon Year.

Leovi said...

Yes, the dragon is about to arrive.

lina said...

Bananaz,
Oh dea. Hope it'll heal soon. Don't forget to make the appointment to get it checked!

Xjion89 said...

still think this is a bizarre song....hahahaha~

Happy Chinese New Year!
Have a great Dragon Year!(^^)

Uncle Lee said...

Hi Bananaz, here's wishing you all the very best of the Dragon year.
Gong xi fa cai to you and all at home.
