The December 27 release THE GUILLOTINES (HUET DIK JI) yesterday unveiled its theme song. Through director Andrew Lau Wai Keung, Jay Chou (Chow Kit Lun) and the film's star Chris Lee Yuchun worked together for the first time. The film theme song COLDER BLADE EDGE is performed by Lee Yuchun , music by Chow Kit Lun and lyrics by Vincent Fang. Lee Yuchun planned on the night of November 11 to conduct the global debut announcement at her Crazy World Tour Wuhan stop. Chow Kit Lun as a film theme song creator was lucky to become THE GUILLOTINES' first viewer. After the viewing he sighed nonstop as the Guillotine team's brotherly love and the helplessness from being forced by the world touched him. He immediately asked his good friend Vincent Fang and in a few days completed the song for the director already.
Lau Wai Keung did not tell Lee Yuchun who the song writer was before playing the song for her first. Lee Yuchun said, "A female voice sang the demo. Old Pa (Lau Wai Keung) even kept who wrote the song from me! He mysteriously asked me how I felt after listening. As soon as the music started, I was reminded of my sobbing scene in the film." Lee Yuchun appreciated Chairman Chou's work, in particular the song's light blues pierced her as she created the two hour "fastest song recording in history". Before the recording, Lau Wai Keung even played videos from THE GUILLOTINES for her, which enabled her to very quickly get into the mood. Lau Wai Keung was very satisfied with this theme song and joked that he was afraid it would be even more popular than CHRYSANTHEMUM PAVILION. Lee Yuchun on her November 11 Wuhan concert will perform COLDER BLADE EDGE for the first time globally. The concert audience will not only be the first to hear the theme song but also receive an exclusive limited edition COLDER BLADE EDGE single.
