Continuing my Chinese songs routine for a couple of weeks already.
I quite like this song, General’s Order《將軍令》which I find quite upbeat and lyrics with a twist. or rather hidden meaning
I find it pretty cool how it incorporated a lot of Chinese instrumental tune, cleverly mixing in also the Chinese opera style to the whole singing.
The MTV does not seems to portray any Chinese element or portray anything in relate to the lyrics, perhaps it was intended.
It is interesting how the song was from a perspective from a soldier perspective.
Even when their role is to follow the general’s order, they are also human after all, with their own thoughts.
Don’t worry! While we keep quiet and not speak our thoughts, we all know what is right and what is wrong.
And we all know, “yo yo yo” is not our language!
Translations of song in pinyin and english is available (click on comments section).
