We got the fever, and the only prescription is more C-pop! A few weeks ago we posted about the origin of the music in David Henry Hwang's Chinglish (which has been extended until October 21) with clips from a couple of the songs. But people kept asking for more, so we’re giving you the entire play list. Check it out below (with links to videos so you can enjoy them in the comfort of your own home).

All the songs are by the same artist, Leehom Wang, a Taiwanese-American singer-songwriter known for combining traditional Chinese music, pop, hip hop, and tons of other musical styles. He has won the Golden Melody Award, the Taiwanese version of the Grammies, four times and performed at the closing ceremony of the Olympics in Beijing.

Here's the list:

  1. 竹林深處 from the album 心中的日月  
  2. Dragon Dance from the album The 18 Martial Arts
  3. 我完全沒有任何理由理你 from the album 王力宏全新創作大碟 心.跳 
  4. Cockney Girl from the album 改變自己
  5. 你是我心內的一首歌 from the album 改變自己
  6. 開場白 from the album 心中的日月
  7. 改變自己 from the album 改變自
  8. Du U Love Me from the album The 17 Martial Arts
  9. 放開你的心 from the album 心中的日月
