comment What syntax is acceptable for classifier + noun + adjectival phrase
"好一本书" in your second example is similar to "what a special book it is" in English. "好" here helps to form an exclamatory sentence and does not mean "great". 好一个混蛋 = what a jerk; 好一句“不关我的事” = (roughly) how dare you say "it's none of my business"! We can start a new question, actually.

comment Can native Chinese speakers distinguish tones in songs?
When I first listened to the song, I thought it was "你吻我" (you kiss me) as opposed to "你问我" (you ask me). But the context made it clear that: 你问我爱你有多深 (you ask me how much I love you).

comment When is it proper to use 托您的福?
I hear "托您的福" more often as a sarcastic comment. A: 你今天没去看电影?You didn't go to the movies today? B: 托你的福,我帮你找钥匙找了半个小时,没来及去电影院。(Sarcastically) 托你的福! I spent half an hour looking for your key and missed the movie.

comment What is 猫舅 in the following sentence?
If it's a status, I think it might be a typo or a nickname for the speaker's partner.

comment What syntax is acceptable for classifier + noun + adjectival phrase
I think "丢了一副眼睛" sounds right, too. The only situation I can think of where you must invert the order is the idiom "小事一桩" (no big deal; a piece of cake).

comment Chinese version of the idiom “The word on the street”
"你们听到什么风声" is used among spies and detectives in war movies. 走漏风声 (a 成语) means leaking out information.

comment Use of 蓝 (Blue) in a Specific Context?
Thank you! This song is rather vague and poetic. Now that I listened to it - 蓝(lan)actually sounds a lot like the English word "love" in Cantonese! I am so glad that you asked since I am learning Cantonese myself! Andy Hui and Ekin Cheng are similar to William So in style. They probably have simpler lyrics.
