This is great. It show China is not all grey 1984 style of living as most western people think, including members here. Cough Mr.. . Cough. Their view of China couldn't be far removed from this. They will say, but this people are coerced into singing North Korea style. It the default line..... But there's no democr..... they cried.

For some reason there's a big deal this year with 我的祖国. There was some big drama in Taiwan where Ouyang Nana and Angela Chang were to come to mainland to sing this song and Mainland Affairs Council urged them not to go. The two of them basically said go fuck yourself and went anyway. Now that they're back in Taiwan they're facing potential fine.

Of course given the context behind 我的祖国 (it being a famous song from the movie Battle on Shangganling Mountain, depicting the Korean War) and the current situation between China, US and Taiwan one could easily see the politics behind it. Although if you didn't know the movie where it came from there's actually nothing in the lyrics itself that would suggest anything anti-US about it. The closest is probably these lines:

If friends come, there is fine wine
But if the wolves come
Those who greet them have hunting guns

Yes. I posted the singer's in the breaking news as per below.

Could you imagine the outcry by the MSM and, indeed some members here regarding freedom. Etc.

But because it's the other way around, not a peep from the MSM.

Taiwan could fine Ou-yang NT$500,000 for singing at China National Day
'Smell the sea and feel the sky life is wonderful' writes Ou-yang amid controversy over China performance

Here is the original sound track and lyric

Lyrics:
This is a great river waves on waves,
Rice blossoms sweeten the air in spring breeze,
Along the river banks are our homes,
We love to listen to boatmen's singing,
And watch white sails come and go.

The Lasses have flower-like faces,
And the Lads have ocean-like minds,
In order to open up a new world,
They awaken the sleeping mountains,
And have the rivers take on new look.

This is my beautiful Motherland,
A place where I was born and grew,
On this vast expanse of land,
Enchanting sceneries.

Mountains green, water clean, a precious place to be,
Every road here is built open and wide,
Welcoming friends with our best wine,
If robbers ever dare to intrude,
The hunting guns are also cocked and ready.

Such a land of many heroes,
A place we proudly call home,
This land of ancient history,
Still springs youthful vigor everywhere.

Mountains green, water clean, a precious place to be,
Every road is built open and wide,
Welcoming friends with our best wine,
If robbers ever dare to intrude,
The hunting guns are also cocked and ready.

This is a land of great strength,
A place we proudly call home,
This land of marvelous warmth,
The sun shines brightly all over

The irony being that the Taiwanese media has been playing the clip of Ouyang Nana singing the song so much that many people in Taiwan could sing along by now.
