Amani is written by Beyond to remind people of the suffering of children during the war. Although a very simple song, the meaning is deep. This song is a protest by Beyond to ask the government to pursue peace and stop the suffering ... Amani Nakupenda Wewe.

Amani was also dedicated to the first African president in sount africa, Nelson Mandela.

Beyond has many other meaningful and great songs.
some of my personal faves are :
歲月無聲
不再猶豫
喜歡妳
舊日的足跡
灰色軌跡
午夜怨曲
誰伴我闖蕩
長城
遙望
俾面派對
海闊天空
情人
我是憤怒
祝你愉快 (this song was dedicated to kakui after he passed away..)
&& many many more.

kakui's voice is the most powerful thing ive ever heard. it's extremely unfortuante for all music lovers to lose someone as talented and gifted as him.

When I was in Hongkong for holiday I bought the album "Beyond - The Ultimate Story". My Chinese isn't that great, so thus I won't understand everything they sing, but it's partly nogstalgia that I love the songs and of course the great voice. Also the fact that it's rock and I can hardly find any other quality Cantonese rock band. Anyone with recommendations are welcome :)

On general I like all songs, but if I'd the choose the favorites, then they would be:

003. Beyond - [Beyond The Ultimate Story CD 2 #03] 午夜怨曲
004. Beyond - [Beyond The Ultimate Story CD 2 #04] 灰色軌跡
007. Beyond - [Beyond The Ultimate Story CD 2 #07] 俾面派對
008. Beyond - [Beyond The Ultimate Story CD 2 #08] 無淚的遺撼
010. Beyond - [Beyond The Ultimate Story CD 2 #10] Amani (I got this one on cassete lol)
011. Beyond - [Beyond The Ultimate Story CD 2 #11] 不再猶豫
012. Beyond - [Beyond The Ultimate Story CD 2 #12] 誰伴我闖蕩
013. Beyond - [Beyond The Ultimate Story CD 2 #13] 高溫派對 (quite energetic...)
014. Beyond - [Beyond The Ultimate Story CD 2 #14] 長城
015. Beyond - [Beyond The Ultimate Story CD 2 #15] 遙望

That's like the half of CD 2 I like. You won't regret if you buy their album. The album contains one DVD with concerts and 3 CD's, each with 16 songs. Only for >20 Euro on YesAsia, what a bargain and goodbuy! :lol?:

達明, 太极 and 草蜢 also have some unique songs :whistle

I've been listening to alot my old Beyond albums lately and no doubt the best of their music lies between 88-92. I think there was like 3 different eras of Beyond from the early 80s till the late 80s (when Ka-keung, Paul Wong joins and there was only 4 members left) and 93-present which is after Ka-kui's death. The best songs from Beyond definitely are the ones from the Ka-kui eras. The songs from Beyond after Ka-kui were not too bad but not as original and unique as those during the days with Ka-kui. Wong Ka-kui basically defines 'Beyond' and the songs during his time were the best ones. I also remember the days when there was like 5 or 6 members, I think it was also before Paul and Ka-keung joined the band... there were songs during that short period which were underated but forgetable. Those albums then may be out of print though.

As majiroko stated above, The Ultimate Story is definitely a MUST MUST GET for all beyond fans. It captured almost all of beyond's greatest hits during the 3 eras (the era with 5 people, kakui era, and the present era) into 3 cds + the dvd is awesome.

and yea, its definitely agreeable that kakui deinfes beyond, because without him there wouldn't be a beyond, or in this case, a successful beyond.

if you want an album with the 5person era, you should get the arabian concert cd/dvd. As for the dvd, the quality isn't all that great because i think their previous manager (leslie chan) re-released it just for the $ after kakui passed away. The cd isn't bad though, many different things goin on that's rare in hk nowadays.

Seriously, all their songs are good. The Ultimate Story 3CD set is the best one, but some songs are missing, such as 爸爸媽媽, 不可一世, 遙遠的Paradise and one of their last great songs (released in 2003 but not included on The Ultimate Story).... 抗戰二十年.... but at least 長空 was included :)
Here's a video of the song 抗戰二十年:

it's almost amazing how prominent they had became in the pop-dominated HK music scene as a rock band sinceHK rock bands aren't very appreciated (most hk'ers only listen to foreign rock bands when it comes to rock music)

the entire band kinda sucked after ka kui died

I started listening to them in the 80s, and I still take out their cds for a spin every now and then. I don't get bored of them at all. They sound just as "cool" nowadays as they did back then.

Some people I know who used to like Beyond before Ka Kui passed away don't like the new songs, mostly written by Paul. But, I for one love Paul's songs. I think his style is more along the lines of what wester rock music is like. Ka Kui's songs will always be classics and I still love them, but I can't help but think that his song-writing was quite restricted by the pop-only market of the 80s and early 90s.

yup, i still listen to their songs. i understand that some people prefer the old beyond, but what to do? im sure the remaining members wished it turned out happily ever after, so i don't want to say that the without-ka kui-beyond is not great. they did try their best. and i can see that each of them is still grieving over the accident. and yes, they've moved on. i understand completely why they made the decision to say goodbye to their fans, i think they want to move on with their lives cause all these years, i.m.o they're sort stuck in the past, stuck in 1993. you can totally see it if you watch their concerts without Ka Kui. and I like it when they kept mentioning his name in their concerts. All the four members of BEYOND are role models, they worked hard, they struggled, they did it out of passion for music. Sadly, not many idols are following their footsteps.

Hi, I just wonder why this forum is only talking about TVB artists but no singer, song writer artists? I like to take the chance to start a thread to discuss everything about Beyond. It has been more than 10 years after Wong Ka-Kui dies, eventually in reality the three pieces band are no longer surviving. Last few weeks ago, Paul Wong and Sai Wing were supposed to hold a concert at Malaysia, somehow it was reported postponed due to Sai Wing sickness. Anybody knows what happened with Sai Wing?

Just attended their Singapore concert on 8 November. They still rock though only 2 members are present. Always wonder what they will be like if Ka Kui didn't pass away so tragically way back in 1993.

I love Beyond. I started to like them in 1993, right before Ka Kui died. I was devastated when I found out about his death. His legacy of musical genius and brilliance will live on. His voice will shoot straight to your heart and move you even if you don't understand Cantonese. It was his music, it was universal. I really miss him.

Ka Kui era was by far the best but after Ka Kui died, the 2 albums they released, "2nd Floor Rear Portion" and "Sound" were pretty awesome. The best songs were 仍然是要闖 ( ) and 遙遠的paradise ( ).

After those 2 albums though, their music wasn't that great anymore so I stopped listening to them but I still love them and always will.

Beyond is absolutely my love! I listen to them 24-7 and I'm only like 15. :thumbsup They are awesome, but nowadays just listen to songs cause they're catchy and what not. They don't realize that the song is actually trash and the lyrics are meaningless! Beyond ftw. :V
