詩意 (Shiyi), a beautiful, poetic song, and the lyrics is also quite funny.
Title: 詩意 (from movie “一簾幽夢” (1974)) Singer: 蕭孋珠 Lyrics: 琼瑶 Music: 刘家昌 Translation: 李杀 (Xah Lee)
一个女孩 名叫诗意 心中有无数秘密 因为世上 难逢知己 她必须寻寻觅觅 她以为她 脸上没有 露出痕迹 在她的脸上 早已经写着 孤寂
a girl by the name of Shiyi full of yearning a true friend is hard to find she tries hard she thinks she can keep her secret without a trace but loneliness is written on her face
Note, 詩意 (Shiyi) literally means “poetic” and “meaning; intentions”. In the context of the lyrics, it could be translated as “poetic yearning”. 詩意 is also a pun, homonym to 失意, meaning “despondency”. This is a theme song from a movie 一簾幽夢 (Dream Links), about a girl who is lovelorn.

The first English song in the restaurant is “Rain” (1969), by José Feliciano.
José Feliciano (b1945) is a blind Puerto Rican singer, virtuoso guitarist and composer, known for many international hits including the Christmas song “Feliz Navidad”.
Listen to the pouring rain Listen to it pour, And with every drop of rain You know I love you more Let it rain all night long, Let my love for you go strong, As long as we're together Who cares about the weather? Listen to the falling rain, Listen to it fall, And with every drop of rain, I can hear you call, Call my name right out loud, I can here above the clouds And I'm here among the puddles, You and I together huddle. Listen to the falling rain, Listen to it fall. It's raining, It's pouring, The old man is snoring, Went to bad And bumped his head, He couldn't get up in the morning, Listen to the falling rain, listen to the rain
