    Default Great ATV Themesongs

    I wished atv would released their good themesongs on compilation CDs like TVB does, especially ATV themesongs of drama TV series of the 1980's & 1990's.
    Sometimes its very rare to find some good ATV themesongs released on compilations CD and some of them are not even released on cds while TVB's themesongs are released on CDs.

    I think people tend to remembered tvb series & themesongs more than atv themesongs because tvb does a better marketing of their series, songs & artists & distribution channels. Some of atv themesongs are also good as TVB's and some of them are even much BETTER than tvb's in terms of music & singing.

    what are your favorite atv themesongs?

    Here are my list of themesongs which I liked from ATV drama TV series.

    1. Qin Shi Huang---(1984) sang by Gallen Lo (Law,Ka Leung)----this is released.

    2. The Chronicles of the Shadow swordsman (Ping Chung Hop Ying Luk)----the Main themesong and Sub themesong sang by Gallen Lo----hard to find.

    3. The Tai Chi Master I & II---1982 & 1984 sang by Johnny Yip Chun Tong ----have been released.

    4. Dynasty I---thus is released.

    5. Empress Wu Ze Tian---this is released.

    6. The Rise & Fall of Qing Dynasty I & II---main & sub themesongs----NOT released.

    7. The Rise & Fall of Qing Dynasty--The Forbidden City in Jeopardy----I think this its sang by Jamie chic mei chun.

    8. The Silver Tycoon-----sang by Christine Ng wing mei.

    9. Recreate Prosperity---sang by christine Ng.

    The atv themesongs sang by christine ng & gallen lo are much better than their tvb themesongs in terms of music & singing.

    10. Heroine of the Yangs I

    11. My Date with the Vampire

    12. The romantic Poet (1980's version)

    13. Empress Dowager

    14. Princess Cheung Ping

    agreed.

    I'd really love to have themesongs of The Great General, Heroine of The Yangs, Empress Dowager and Secret Battle of The Majesties on CD. They're just so great. I was so obsessed with these themesongs that i recorded them into tape when the show started. Tiring task, coz i have to rerecord it if there was noises on the background which means that i have to wait the next day to do it again. I remember i had to record The Great General's main themesong for 6 times before i got it right and Secret Battle 3 times. But hell, its worth it. Even it was six years ago i still get to listen to the themesongs.....total pleasure! I'm afraid that the tape wont last long.....so i was thinking how to transfer them into CD...and since ATV didnt release CD for the themesongs, so I'm still figuring it out how to do it myself...ehehehe.....

    I think the following songs are great songs from ATV series:
    -The Great General-themesong and subsongs
    -Mystic needle and Crane(sorry forgot the English title)-theme
    -Secret battle of the majesties
    -The Forbidden City in Jeopardy(the Rise and Fall of Qing Dynasty is a completely different series)
    -Reincarnated 78 and 93(they are the same song)
    -The snow is red-theme and subsongs
    and others...
    Respect other people's opinions and views. If we learn how to do that than all of these fights and arguments will not occur.

    cherrie,

    christine ng "ng,wing-mei" sang atv's the silver tycoon.

    she's now as tvb actress.

    I think her themesongs in atv drama tv series are much better than her tvb themesongs.

    she sang atv's 'the silver tycoon" & "recreate prosperity" was much better than her tvb themesongs.

    what do you think?

    she's the actress who occassionally dressed as a man & played as timmy ho bo sung's love interest in "Man of wisdom". I forgot is it man of wisdom I or II.

    she played the friend of gallen lo ka leung in a tvb's modern series where gallen lo sells vegetables in the streets & have a wife who's unsatisfied with his job. she's the actress who slapped marco lo hing fai who tried to win over gallen lo's wife. I don't remembered the english title of this tvb series.

    It was Crystal Tin Yui Nei, who played the evil girl in the series, the one who lost her baby trying to make Monica's Rita lose her baby.

    Totally agree with you guys. ATV has a lot of good serials and their themesongs plus subs are very nice!!! Even though I don't understand it, I find it still very soothing and nice to listen to. Some of my favorites are :

    My Date with a Vampire I and Subs
    My Date with a Vampire II and Subs
    Heroine of the Yangs and sub
    Flaming Brothers (Sub)
    The Snow is Red
    Year of the Charmeleon
    Coincidentally

    Basically, every ATV serie that I've seen, I like their songs in there
    Yesterday's History,
    Tomorrow's a Mystery,
    Today's a Gift,
    Thatís why we call it,
    The Present.
