I LOL'd at this when I was looking at latest news.

The lyrics are pure lulz.

another Chinese blogger said: ‘Suppose for a moment that Obama was invited to a banquet in China, and he invited an American artist who had performed in China for many years to play an American war song against China, what kind of reaction do you think the Chinese government and people would have?’

there you have it

Key word is "Chinese Government". If they can give hell to their own people, what more to the people they not-so-secretly not-like?

This is China, did anyone expect better?

This is some made up bogus right? All I saw on the news the past few days was turmoil in Tunisia and uprising in Egypt.

Ultimately, I doubt anyone would be seriously offended.

Not like they could be, anyway.

Welp, he IS in America.

We'd be horrible if we DID do something!

Joey 01-26-2011 06:00 PM

I watched the performance, it's actually a really nice song. And he only played piano, it's not like he sang or anything. I see no issue.

crazyhealer 01-27-2011 12:42 AM

This is what he play.


This is the original song.


Like what Glarbage said, he didn't sing it. I don't really see the problem about it. What i see is a song of patriotism. Anti american? Where?

Kongro 01-27-2011 06:43 AM

The pianist himself probably didn't have any such thoughts when he played it.

Ya'll just misconceiving.

Aye, I saw no problem with the lyrics either, despite what they may or may not originally be about the song seemed pretty nice to me.
