CHINESE CHILDREN'S SONGS

GLORY TO OUR GREAT, GREAT MOTHERLAND! CELEBRATE! AND SHUT UP!
ALBUM`````CHINESE CHILDREN'S SONGS
GENRE`````MUSIC FOR KIDS, PROPAGANDA
YEAR```````????


WHY:
I dont know where I got this or how old it is. And yes - it is in Chinese.

Anyway, this is a collection of children's songs from communist China obviously produced by state run propaganda machinery. Just look at some of the titles and you'll get the picture. These songs are standard brainwashing stuff in communist and socialist countries (old Yugoslavia, old Romania, North Korea etc) but what makes Chinese (children) music stand out is the presence of Western influenced production. Well, the songs are simple and mostly sound like a cheap ad from the 80's but it makes an interesting mix, considering the fact that most people think of China as a stiff system that does not allow other influences.

For me, the most interesting songs are the most obvious examples of glorification: We Are So Happy, Our Fields, Green Motherland, Communist Young Pioneers, I Love Bejing Tiananmen, Heroic Little Sisters etc.

Incredibly disturbing and brilliant find - wish I came across this earlier. I imagine it'll make driving that much more exciting as well - what with spring having just arrived...

Thank you for posting!

When it's Battle Hymn of the Republic it's patriotism, and when it's a communist country it's propoganda...
