Albeit technically in a more convenience way than previously, the production of Cantonese popular songs in Hong Kong, also known as Canto-pop in international context, has demonstrated its geographical uniqueness.Hong Kong, located at the southern tip of China, is believed to be a place where ‘East meets West’. Such feature lends it great versatility in the handling of different situations including the production of popular music. While Chinese Confucian belief and Buddhist philosophical idea are in the heart of local people, the westernized value of democracy and freedom still exert great influence.Focusing on the crucial political crisis experienced in Hong Kong, namely, the Sino-British negotiations in the Eighties, the transformation of sovereignty in the Nineties and the recent pro-democracy Umbrella Movement in 2014, the paper attempts to reveal how Canto-pop has made cultural references to a changing political situation as well as adding to its repertoire about the political changes with local cultural and musical sentiments.
