The Best Chinese Famous Song In Chinese Music

We all know that dragon is the symbol of the Chinese nation, so we are all the descendants of the dragon. And there is one of the Chinese famous song in china called Legend of The Dragon. The Legend of the Dragon was composed by Hou DeJian in 16th,December, 1978. He first sang it in Sprig Festival Gala Evening in1988 and then it became popular.

Hou was studying in the Taiwan's National Chengchi University when the United States broke off diplomatic relations with the Taiwan authorities in 1978. In his view that Chinese people have always been shrouded in sadness, and distracted by foreign people since the Opium War(鸦片战争)in 1840. He was angry at this cowardly sadness, so he wrote this song. Hou said that it is a patriotic song and advocates nationalism. The song's lyric has been changed twice.

 The first time is by Taiwan United Daily news(联合报). The UDN changed ''be besieged on all sides is slave's sword '' into ''appeasement sword''. Hou thought the reason why it is been changed is that the word ' slave' is too sensitive to encourage soldiers to keep up high morale. The second time is by Song Chuyu.

He wanted to add a section to express the spirit of striving ,but Hou can't accept it .Sooner, the Committee for cultural work of the Kuomintang(国民党文化工作委员会) also can be called the Literary Union (文工会)began to send people to lobby him and invite him to write a Chinese famous song called 'Three people 's principles of the reunification of china's great league song'(三民主义统一中国大同盟歌),which was decided to sing by Deng Lijun. However, he didn't refuse face to face.

Later Hou left Taiwan and the Legend of the Dragon was not admitted to sing in public until Taiwan announced the "Martial law" in 1987. After Hou entered the Sprig Festival Gala Evening, this song started to be famous. In 2000, the singer Wang Lihong incorporated this song in the ''The first day forever ''and sang it the second time in the Spring Festival Gala Evening.

  This song sings, "the ancient china has a dragon , its name is called china ,the ancient East has group of people ,they are all dragon teaching other people, under the big dragon foot I grow, will grow into later is dragon teaching other people……"

Its lyric reflects a strong sense of national ride and patriotism, and what the industrious and intelligent Chinese people yearn for. It intended to inspire the Chinese people's national pride and self-confidence. The song has famous to all of the people in china.
