Learn Chinese in China


Name of Bjork-like song popular in Beijing in 1998

Recommended Posts


In September-October 1998 I was in Beijing and there was this pop song that was very popular, I would like to find out what it was. It had a female vocalist that sung very aggressivley, very high pitched and sounded angry or desperate. Her vocals and singing was in the style of the Icelandic singer Bjork early in her career, somewhat like in the song "Birthday" when she was with The Sugarcubes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BFQPNApwJGU


Cheers from the island of Gotland,
