I’m Eldon Reeves. I live in Hong Kong, and speak Cantonese and Mandarin fluently. I am regularly asked if I grew up here (I didn’t). While learning Chinese, I listened to a lot of Chinese songs. In retrospect, referring to non-literal translations with some explanatory notes would have been very helpful. I’m therefore doing my own translations now, and hope they will help other learners.

Signing up for posts by email* to this site tells me that my work is useful to other people. It also saves you from having to deal with endless bookmarks and Googling around a lot later, trying to find lost pages. Commenting or emailing me tells me what you want to see, too.

I also play the flute, saxophone and piano, and do composition/arrangements, which you can check out if you’re interested.
