Here is a Cantonese cover of a Mike Oldfield song, by George Lam. Does anybody know the name of the original? I've heard it before, but I can't remember the title.

It's the well-known track "Video Unavailable"  :laugh: Possibly a sequel to "Video Killed the Radio Star", where the Radio Star gets revenge :p

I was afraid that might happen, these autogen Youtube videos can be a pain.

If anybody has a VPN, set it to a US server. The video should play, then.

It resembles Etude from the album The Killing Fields.

That, as a user pointed out in the Youtube comments, is a cover of "Recuerdos de la Alhambra".

I've just listened to a Spanish guitar version of it. Wistful stuff - maybe Tarrega knocked over his bottle of Sangria  :laugh:

And thanks for your comment Davking. For some reason I can't explain that name is oddly familiar   :/
