One night in BeiJing – music videos (Love BeiJing)

A song from rock band SHIN that pays homage to Chinese Opera and has become quite a well known anthem. Sung here superbly by the beautiful Angela.

My translation of the key verse :

I don't care where you came from

I don't know if you'll return

But with you in my arms now

Gonna hold you

Just as long as I can


Bonus film - "Nine million bicycles in BeiJing" / Love BeiJing ...


True beauty is a pure heart.

Six billion people in the world,

Love them all;

But you're the one I love most
