A beautiful song written by Phượng Hoàng band guitarist Lê Hựu Hà, and sung impeccably by Elvis Phương during his time with this amazing band. Pictues of both withinthe video. Lyrics and English translation in my notes. The Phượng Hoàng (Phoenix) were re-formed on June 15, 1971 in the Pink Night tea room with Lê Hựu Hà (guitar), Nguyễn Trung Cang (organ, bass), Nguyen Trung Vinh (drum), Nhu Khiem (bass), and Elvis Phuong vocals. They wrote their own songs, and were trailblazers in Vietnamese Rock, specializing in harmony technique, and much more. They played at Saigon venues such as Pink Night, Queen Bee and Maxim’s.

Elvis Phuong, real name Pham Ngoc Phuong, was born on February 1, 1945 in Thu Dau Mot town, Binh Duong. His career spans over 50 years, singing many types of music. He attended a French Catholic school in Saigon, and started his career singing foreign songs, with Elvis Presley being his hero. He first performed in public in 1962 at Regina Pacis High School Auditorium. He was in several famous young bands like The Rebels, The Rockin ’Stars, The Vampires, The Shotgun, No Name, and Phuong Hoang. He has sung with many female singers on stage, most notably Ai Van and Thanh Lan. He is highly regarded for his French language singing. He left Vietnam in 1975, initially settling in France, then in the United States.

Elvis Phuong’s first wife died in a traffic accident in 1970. In the 1980s, he was in a long term relationship with film actress Cat Phuong. He eventually married his current wife, Phan Le Hoa. Elvis Phuong left Vietnam in 1975, initially in France, then in the United States. Currently, he resides in District 2, Ho Chi Minh City. During the 1980s, Elvis Phuong produced a series of successful albums, and co-produced a highly successful duet album together with singer Khanh Ly in 1985, Niem Khuc Cuoi. In the early 1990s, Elvis Phuong gained a new following of fans with his duets recorded with Ai Van of Vietnamese folk music for Thuy Nga Paris. After open heart surgery in 1998, he and his wife returned to her home in Nha Trang. Currently, he resides in District 2, Ho Chi Minh City. On May 10, 2014, he celebrated his 54th year in show business in a sold out live concert show held at Lan Anh Music Venue in Ho Chi Minh City.

Lyrics
Yêu em vì ta ghét buồn
Yêu em vì ta ghét hờn
Yêu em vì ta khinh khi dối gian.

Yêu em vì ta chán người
Yêu em vì ta chán đời
Yêu em vì ta không tin ở trời.

Ta không thèm mái tóc huyền
Ta không thèm đôi mắt đẹp
Ta không màng lời khen chê thế gian.

Ta không cần ai hiểu mình
Khi ta ngợi ca ái tình
Khi ta dìu em đi trong ý thơ.

Em ơi, anh muốn nói rằng
Sao em còn mãi hững hờ
Khi anh trọn lòng yêu em thiết tha.

Xin em đừng luôn dối lòng
Khi tim làm đôi má hồng
Cho ta được gần nhau trong giấc mộng.

English Translation
Love You – Elvis Phuong
Love you because I hate sadness
Love you because I hate you
Love you because I despise lies.

Love you because I’m bored
Love you because I’m bored
Love you because I don’t believe in heaven.

I don’t crave the dark hair
I don’t crave beautiful eyes
I don’t mind the compliment of the world.

I don’t need anyone to understand me
When we praise love
When I help you go in the mind.

Honey, I want to say that
Why are you so indifferent?
When you wholeheartedly love me dearly.

Please don’t lie to me
When the heart makes pink cheeks
Let us be close to each other in dreams.

  3. Một trong những bài hát tôi yêu thích nhất của Elvis Phương, đồng thời cũng là bài hát gắn liền với tuổi thơ của tôi bên chiếc radio.
