Picture 阿當 and the dilemma he faces. On one hand he has Eve, a picture of perfection and stability, on the other, the apple, and the unknown pleasures it brings. The ageless couple Adam and Eve is the inspiration behind 阿當的抉擇, the 1st song by H.K’s newest “old man boyband,” Alive. The song was written especially for Alive by their friend and producer, Davy Chan. When asked what inspiration was drawn to write this song, Davy says it is mainly the attitude that Alive naturally exudes. “Alive has a natural, fun-loving, relaxed quality about them,” Davy says. “I wanted their 1st song to have a lot of positive energy. Something relaxed, something fun! When I talked to lyricist 李俊一, about the lyrics for this song, I just told him about Alive and he came up with the concept of 阿當的抉擇. I think the concept fits the song because I think most men would have the same struggle between their girlfriend and temptation. “
Girlfriend or temptation? Good or evil? Not exactly the normal sort of topics you would find in a Canto-pop song. Apparently that’s exactly what Alive was looking for themselves! Something different. “I don’t think I would be able to sing the same type of lyrics that Twins or Boyz would sing,’ Daniel Wu remarks. “We are a bit older and more mature. Our outlook on love and relationships would be different from a teenager. I am happy with 阿當的抉擇 because I think it is a very catchy pop tune with lyrics that relates more to people my age.”
This is the very 1st song Alive has ever recorded. Because most members of Alive have not had any previous recording experience, the recording process could have been a daunting task. But as it turned out the recording process went smoother than expected. “I was afraid!” Dave recalls when asked what Alive was like when recording 阿當的抉擇. “I had no idea what to expect. I know that they have little or no experience with singing and recording. I thought my job was going to be very difficult. But they did O.K! Thankfully we had time and were not on a tight schedule. I had time to work with them and bring the best out of each of them.”
Recording in the studio may be new to Alive, but don’t think for a minute they didn’t enjoy themselves. “I didn’t realize I was working.” Terence Yin quips. “Me , Andrew, Conroy, and D were just chillin’ in the studio. We’d help each other with our parts, drink beer, talk shit. I felt like we were hanging out at Daniel’s house or something and we’d get up to sing once in a while. Good times!” Seems like Davy may be right about Alive and the attitude they carry. “We are just friends who wanted to do some music together and have fun!” Conroy adds. “If it’s not fun, there’s no reason to do it!”
Good times and good friends is what it is all about. So listen to 阿當的抉擇 on the music page and check out the MV on the video page. Enjoy and then ask yourself, “Will you give in to temptation?”
