First, [community profile] dark_agenda has a master post collecting all sorts of pimping posts for chromatic fandoms!

青花瓷 is one of my favorite 周杰倫/Jay Chou songs, largely because of some of the traditional Chinese instruments in the background and the gorgeous lyrics. I actually can't read a lot of the lyrics because some of the characters are fairly obscure, and the lyrics are written in a style that resembles classical Chinese poetry. (ETA: Er, and on rereading the lyrics, I realize I actually know a fair amount of them, but it's really hard to figure out what they are when you are singing karaoke and trying to keep up!)

And then, there is the gorgeous music video! It has reincarnation! Wind machines! Tragic romance! Pretty wuxia clothes! And all in four minutes or so!
