Luo Dayou (罗大佑): An unforgotten cultural icon

Originally preparing himself to be a physician, he decided to leave his medical career and pursue his passion to sing. His early music reflected a strong Taiwanese cultural influence and his lyrics were profound and deep about life.

He had a huge influence on Chinese pop and rock music with his powerful yet charming lyrics. Dayou’s music included everything from love songs to more political songs. He is recognised as a major cultural icon in Taiwan, Hong Kong and China as his music easily resonates with these Asian cultures with humble, yet influential messages.
Luo Dayou songs
After leaving school to be a physician, Dayou jumped right into his music career. He released his first album in 1983 called Master of the Future. In 1985 he wrote the single “Tomorrow will be better” for the 40th anniversary of Taiwan’s independence from Japanese colonial rule. The lyrics of this song have touched so many and has been performed by over 60 different artists. One of his most famous songs, “Pearl of the Orient”, was released in 1991. He wrote this song for the people of Hong Kong, telling them to always keep sight of their cultural roots despite the British colonization and modernization that was coming with it. Keeping with his political theme, Luo renounced his US citizenship in 2004 to express his feeling towards US intervention in Taiwan, sending marines to Iraq. In 2008 Luo Dayou put on a charity concert in San Jose University Event centre as a fundraiser for the victims of earthquake in Sichuan, China and to also celebrate the newly elected president of Taiwan, Ma Ying-jeou. Special guests at this show included Kao Ling Fung, Hsu Nai Ling, and Cindi Chaw Yong Hua. The heartfelt meaning behind all of Luo Dayou’s music is heard and seen in all he does.
