There's a Chinese version of Christy Moore favourite Ride On

Heard with increasing frequency on Chinese radio, a soft-voiced female singer doing a version of the song written by Jimmy McCarthy and popularised by Christy Moore. She's kept the Ride On, see you" part, but the rest is sung in Mandarin. There's even some people on the bus humming it. Expect it to be heard accross the nation this summer on Chinese ringtones.

More details of the singer and the translation later.

A beautiful song. I believe Chinese will love it.

Surreal.

Imagine - you go all the way to China and you still get plagued by naff Jimmy McCarthy and sweaty over-rated Christy Moore.
