Kaohsiung, July 2 (CNA) "Oh Love, You Are Much Greater Than I Imagined" (愛情你比我想的閣較偉大) by Taiwanese band EggPlantEgg (茄子蛋) won Song of the Year at the 33rd Golden Melody Awards Ceremony in Kaohsiung on Saturday.

"I don't have much to say, except - we can all live peacefully by showing kindness to others," the band's guitarist Hsieh A-der (謝耀德) said while accepting the award.

"Oh Love, You Are Much Greater Than I Imagined" was the theme song for the film "Man In Love," which ruled the box office in Taiwan for three consecutive weeks following its release in March 2021.

"Oh Love, You Are Much Greater Than I Imagined" was up against "Mountain Of Doom" by Ayugo Huang (黃連煜) and Sangpuy (桑布伊), "Dear Grandma" by Waa Wei (魏如萱), "Fragile" by Namewee (黃明志) and Kimberley Chen (陳芳語), "Red Scarf" by WeiBird (韋禮安), "Bluebirds" Tanya Chua (蔡健雅), "DEATH TRIP" by ØZI feat. Soft Lipa (蛋堡), and "Prototype" by LaLa Hsu (徐佳瑩).

EggPlantEgg rocked to prominence with the release of their debut studio album "Cartoon Character" in 2017, and the trio was a major winner at the 29th GMA in 2018, taking home Best New Artist and Best Taiwanese Album.
