Too poppy and Westernized. I'd rather hear something that actually sounds Chinese (aside from the language it's sung in).

The Chinese may be surpassing the USA in many areas but music video production is not one of them!!!

It seems some of the meaning is lost in the translations to English based on the images and facial expressions. I would love to have someone who speaks the language help interpret the intent.

Little known USMS fact - Yong Dong was also matysekj's stage/pole dancing name when he performed at an all male strip club in Central Ohio back in the 80s. Don't believe me, ask him where he got that swimsuit he wore for the Chesapeake Bay race.
