Our favorite songs on this album are “The Second Life” and “Cheers” (乾杯). We think these two songs are touching and meaningful, and their rhythms and melodies are brisk and inspirational. The lyrics encourage us to pursue our goals no matter how hard they are. When we are depressed, we listen to the two songs and we will feel better.
