Guangzhou, known as a millennial commercial city and an important departure port of “Maritime Silk Road”, has recently unveiled a brand new city theme song, called “Our Song”.

 

Chirpy theme song of Guangzhou extends the desire of common prosperity to the world

Guangzhou, known as a millennial commercial city and an important departure port of “Maritime Silk Road”, has recently unveiled a brand new city theme song, called “Our Song” (Chinese version called “Fa Ge” with “fa” meaning rich in Chinese). The new theme song of Guangzhou brings out its hope of future prosperity for all the people, citizens and ones all over the world.

“Our song” is a new try of Guangzhou’s city image promotion as “Flower City”. The music video combines repeated lyrics and vivid animation effects, playing an uncharacteristically tongue-in-cheek humor around with various different homophonic and rhyming languages such as “Fa”, “Fun”, “8” and “Hua (meaning flower)”. Mostly, the song gives a desire of “luck and prosperity for all”, describing an internationalized and modern commercialized Guangzhou in a chirpy way.

Guangzhou has always been developing into an “innovative, inclusive, open and sharing” modern metropolis, according to Guangzhou Municipal Publicity Department, and the birth of this song aims to express wishes towards people in Guangzhou and foreign audiences. With elements representing luck and fortune in the song, it is expected that people can feel the openness, enthusiasm and passion of the city.

Guangzhou welcomes everyone to realize their dreams and fulfill their hopes here. Aisen Chen, the fresh Olympic champion in Rio 2016, as one of the singers and a main cartoon character in this song, arouses heated public attention. “I like this catchy song with a profound meaning. Hopefully Guangzhou, my hometown, becomes a dream-come-true paradise for all the people”, said Chen.

In this psychedelic music video, cityscapes as well as city flowers, Cantonese food, folkie and folk-customs are presented. “Gong Xi Fa Cai”, the Chinese luck talk, spreads the song’s theme of prosperity. One will easily get the catchy chorus lines stuck in your head. The video aims at overseas friends, especially young and hip, outlining the development of Guangzhou and to welcome the coming 2017.

广州“花城”神曲 与你“17”迎新年

2017年即将到来,在迎接新年之际,广州为大家献上了一首醒神的城市歌曲——“花城”神曲《发歌》。《发歌》沿袭神曲式轻松幽默的风格,用逗趣的音乐语言,诠释了一个有国际范儿的“花城”广州。

广州人过年的时候喜欢说“恭喜发财”,表达对亲友的祝福和对富裕生活的美好愿望。广州素有“花城”的美誉,“花城”广州具有独特的魅力。“花”的粤语是“发”,因此《发歌》不仅展现了广州对未来蓬勃发展的雄心壮志和宏伟蓝图,更是表达了繁花似锦的“花城”广州热情、开放、奋发的城市活力。

粤语“花”字、幸运数字的“8”字、英文的“FUN”字都与“发”字同音或谐音,这首歌词巧妙地把这些寓意幸运与美好的元素编织在一起,曲调与动漫MV风格轻松逗趣,希望每一位听到这首歌的朋友,都能感受到广州开放、热情、繁荣,欢迎大家到广州来“一起发”。

《发歌》由广州市委外宣办出品,广州籍新科奥运跳水冠军陈艾森、广州本土实力歌手李熙郁、与非门组合现任主音陈艺之等歌手倾情献唱。陈艾森在其为《发歌》发布录制的MV中表示:“自己很喜欢这首歌曲,有趣又不乏深刻的内涵,希望自己的家乡广州发展得越来越好,希望每一个在广州奋斗的人都能实现追求和梦想,2017、新的一年,一起进步、一起发!”

《发歌》将在国内各大媒体网站、电台、电视台,网络和音乐新媒体平台、“中国广州发布”微信微博平台等同步推出,并通过亚洲网、中国网、“New China”海外社交媒体账号等向全球发布。从2017年1月起至春节期间,《发歌》MV将在广州机场、花城广场、火车站等电视屏以及地铁、公交、出租车、楼宇电视等播出,并以“发歌大家唱”游戏、跳“发歌”街舞、花市迎春文化活动等形式,加强对广州城市形象的宣传推介。
