Yes it's true...Joey Sings!
about how many CDs Joey has recorded and released, but here are
the facts about what I've been able to confirm and what I'm still
not 100% sure about.
11, 1992 - Hold
You In My Arms Forever
CD Single - This is it! Barring proof of anything earlier,
this IS Joey's singing debut. Released on March 11, 1992, this
CD single features the title track in Japanese and Mandarin. This
confirms rumors that Joey was seeking to begin a singing career
in Japan and may also be the source of rumors of a Mandarin CD
which predates Isolation.
20, 1997 - Who
Single - This is the title song for the 1997 Japanese film Peking
Geijin: Who Are You? This CD single features two songs, Reset
and a karaoke version of Who Are You?
that are not available on ANGELUS.
11, 1998 - ANGELUS
Extended CD Single - The followup to the Who
Are You? CD single. This 20 minute Extended Play CD
contains five songs and has a running time of 20 minutes.
1, 1998 - Isolation
(lit. Separated From the World)
CD - Joey's first and only (so far) Mandarin CD. A highly
personal CD that helped set the stage for for her return to Chinese
In Spirit Love (lit: Fly Past Yin Yang Circle)Joey's
character does a song and dance routine for a commercial. It sounds
like Joey's voice during the dialog scenes but the singer definitely
In Diary of a Big Man Joey joins Chow
Yun Fat and Sally Yeh in a music video interlude. While I can't
positively state that it is Joey singing her own part, it is definitely
Yun Fat and Sally singing, and it does sound like Joey's voice.
So it seems likely that this was Joey's "singing debut".
During her absence from the silver screen in 1993 rumors
flew about her whereabouts, one rumor was that she was in Japan
taking singing lessons and recording a CD. Well, Hold
You In My Arms Forever seems to confirm
that rumor, but there were other rumors of a Korean and
possibly Cantonese CD release also. The only info I've come across
that would possibly confirm their existence is from the HK Film
Top 10 Box Office report (February 7, 1996) that said: "Joey
Wong's ex-boyfriend Chai Chun is producing her 3 new albums: one
in Japanese, one in Korean, and one in Mandarin". Chai Chun
(Chyi Chin) was involved in the production of ANGELUS
so it's possible that a Korean CD may exist. After all, it
seemed that Hold
You In My Arms Forever wasn't real either.
