    Dreaming of Deer and Caudron

    Promotional poster for upcoming movie “Dreaming of Deer and the Cauldron”

    Having recently heard the theme song to Dreaming of Deer and the Cauldron – “I Will Not Be a Hero” 【我不做英雄】 performed by Hu Ge, I naturally decided to share it with my boyfriend. Upon hearing it for the first time, he actually recognised the tune from one of his favourite bands! The melody is very similar to “Negai“, performed by the very popular Japanese group “JAM Project”.

    “I Will Not Be a Hero” 【我不做英雄】 is a song composed by Yan Yidan 嚴藝丹, who is also responsible for the Meteor Shower OST and Happy Camp album among others. However, after hearing JAM Project’s “Negai” I’m starting to wonder if it’s actually original.
