isn't really a well-known song in the English-speaking west, but it's been huge throughout east Asia
since it first hit the net in 2004. The music video (here in English)
covers all the big timeless truths about life: beauty, the nature of love, sacrifice, and human-mouse transformation.
The original version was in Mandarin
, but you can also hear it in Cantonese
(compare with the same artists' version in Mandarin
, as a short instrumental
, as a Tom and Jerry Dance Remix
(maybe you'd prefer a different remix
?), or – and why the hell not?! – in Swedish pop-punk English
And speaking from first-hand experience in karaoke bars in three countries on three continents, you can almost certainly find the English version of this song at a karaoke house near you. Next time you're out karaoke-ing, sing it. And tell them MetaFilter sent you.
