Teresa Teng fans vote for favorite songs 「鄧麗君最愛歌曲票選」結果出爐


Although Taiwanese diva Teresa Teng passed away 15 years ago, her songs have continued to enchant millions of her fans. An Internet survey organized by the Teresa Teng Foundation for her fans in Taiwan, Hong Kong, Southeast Asia and China showed that Spring in the Northland is surprisingly the most popular of all her hits. This number one hit received more than 9.82 million votes, followed by the second most popular I Only Care About You, with 950,000 votes, and her most well-known song The Moon Represents My Heart, which made it to third place.

This Internet survey was conducted by the Teresa Teng Foundation and POP Radio, along with more than 20 other radio stations around Asia. The results were released after a month-long vote. The Japanese language Spring in the Northland, released in 1979 obtained over half of the total votes.

This song’s original performer was Japanese enka singer Masao Sen. Both Taiwan and Hong Kong have their own modified versions, which are Under the Banyan Tree sung by Taiwanese singer-turned-politician Yu Tian, and the Cantonese version The Rain of Hometown sung by Fanny Wang. Then a Chinese-Japanese version was released, with lyrics written by Lin Huang-kun.

The top 50 songs selected by Teresa’s fans on the foundation’s Web site will be published on three CDs. This is the first time that her fans have decided on the songs to be used. The Teresa Teng Foundation will organize a concert in memory of the diva in Chengdu, the capital city of China’s Sichuan Province on May 14, with all profits from the concert going to charity.



鄧麗君文教基金會、POP Radio聯合亞洲二十幾家電台,進行「鄧麗君最愛歌曲網路票選」活動,歷經一個月的票選,由鄧麗君在一九七九年發行的日文歌「北國之春」拿到近半數的票數,勇奪第一名。
