The Golden Rock song of the day - 6/2/07

I had originally heard today's song as a live rendition from Sandee Chan's live album (disc 1, track 8). Though she's known as a songwriter, the song was curiously written by Cheer Chan, who tends to write relaxing acoustic tunes, not haunting ballads like this. It was also originally sung by Karen Mok on her 1999 album "This is Karen Mok" (which I managed to find a second-hand copy in Hong Kong for less than US$2, where she sings the song in her best Faye Wong/Cranberries type of delivery. Anyway, it's beautiful and poetic, and it's "Do Not Love Me."

There's no MTV for it, but this live version by Karen Mok is surprisingly good and close to the real thing.
