"Optimism" (樂觀) is a Cantonese song sung by Joey Yung, the second plug off her fifth EP, Me, Re-Do

Development

Back in July 2014, Joey first met Mayumi Itsuwa at the famous Japanese composer's concert in Hong Kong[1]. During the meeting, Joey gave Mayumi her Number 6 DVD, Hopelessly Romantic and All Delicious compilations as presents. Wyman Wong suggested sending request to Mayumi for wrting a song for Joey herself. The demo was actually done later and sent to Joey's team[2].

Joey posted on Instagram announcing the release of the song[3] in November, after Wyman spent only a week to finish the lyrics. She later posted another photo of herself, Wyman and Schumann in the recording studio[4]. In late night November 17, the single was released on iTunes[5], while the lyrics video was posted the next day on Joey's official YouTube channel[6].

The music video of the song was shot on December 6, 2014 in Taiwan, Joey posted a series of selfies on Instagram[7]. She also posted one behind the scenes, showing her interacting with a butterfly. The JP Huang directed video was released on January 21, 2015.

Lyrics

讓我這樣吧 讓我最樂觀
孤單到死的剎那
還是在迷信 他~會
墳地裡 贈我花

讓我笑著吧 讓我以樂觀
擊倒最慘的戲碼
華麗地前往 火~化
能下世 遇見他

由別人 嫌我笨
我不理 我不在乎

誰前行 無亮光 似地庫
悲觀的人悲觀 不過盼 被維護
行刑時 能樂觀 地痛苦 未算苦
誰會在乎

讓我這樣吧 讓我最樂觀
孤單到死的剎那
還是在迷信 他~會
墳地裡 贈我花

讓我笑著吧 讓我以樂觀
擊倒最慘的戲碼
華麗地前往 火~化
能下世 遇見他

由別人 嫌我笨
我不理 我不在乎

誰前行 無亮光 似地庫
悲觀的人悲觀 不過盼 被維護
行刑時 能樂觀 地痛苦 未算苦
誰會在乎

如遲遲 無幸福 會自顧
青春假如 可苦戀過 已 是無負
何時能 留住他 讓重傷 被慰撫
誰會在乎
我在乎
我在乎
