KUALA LUMPUR, April 15 — Hong Kong rock band Beyond’s classic Hai Kuo Tian Kong (Boundless Oceans, Vast Skies) has been viewed 100 million times on YouTube.
It is the first Cantonese song to cross the threshold.
Released in 1993, the track was included on the album Le Yu Nu (Joy and Anger) which saw the four members collaborate for the last time, hk01.com reported.
According to the portal, the song, written by band member Wong Ka Kui, was uploaded to YouTube in September 2011.
The song was specially written by Wong to commemorate the band’s 10th anniversary in 1993.
Sadly, Wong died that year after falling from a stage platform during an appearance on Tokyo Fuji Television’s game show Ucchan-nanchan no Yarunara Yaraneba on June 24.
He was 31 years old.
Fans praised the band for this achievement.
On YouTube, a fan commented that Wong would have been happy with the news.
“We miss you very much. Although you have been gone for almost 20 years, I believe your song will continue to be heard for centuries!
“This is your 60th birthday present from the fans, we will always love you,” the fan said, using the handle vae dexiaopengyou lai.
