GUANGZHOU, China, Dec. 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/. 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" means rich in Chinese), which brings out its hope of future prosperity for all the people, citizens and those 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, playing an uncharacteristically tongue-in-cheek humour around with various different homophonic and rhyming language such as "Fa", "Fun", "8", "Hua (means flower)". Mostly, the song expresses a desire of "luck and prospererity for all", describing an internationalized and modern commercialized Guangzhou in a chirpy way.
