’猪都笑了‘

Posted by miantiao May 19, 2009 in the Group General Discussion.

i am all for a regular lesson aimed at introducing contempory chinese popular music to poddies.

here is a good example of a contempory popular song that would make a good lesson.

it reveals to some extent what is tolerated by censors and also to some degree how strong nationalist sentiment clouds and detracts from any inner reflection concerning the racist lyrics toward the end, which i believe spoils what is a great tune. 

the lyrics are straightforward。 however, some cameo lyrical roles are played by provincial locals using local dialects. these lyrics are not supplied. 

the tune itself is catchy and includes good use of vocal harmonies, background vocals and  spoken vocals.
