Quánchéng Lù, Music in the Streets
This busy avenue in Jinan is lined with hotels, department stores, and restaurants. My first stop in Jinan was the Starbucks on on Quancheng Lu. The owner of my next Airbnb met me there, and escorted me to the place a couple hundred yards to the north. I was pleased to find that not only was it spacious but, literally one block from Dàmíng Hú Park.
Later I walked back to Quancheng Lu and found the place pulsating with music and crowds. I wandered up and down the street checking out the alleys and shops. One alley, Furong Jie, was packed with food vendors, shops and people. And when I returned to Quancheng Lu I found a huge crowd around a live performance from some young musicians.
Here is the chorus to the song you heard in the video. It is super-popular in China these days.
|Audio, Chinese, Pinyin, English|
|我爱你,爱着你||Wǒ ài nǐ, àizhe nǐ||I love you, loving you|
|就像老鼠爱大米||Jiù xiàng lǎoshǔ ài dà mǐ||Just like mouse loves rice|
|不管有多少风雨||Bùguǎn yǒu duōshǎo fēngyǔ||No matter the hardships|
|我都会依然陪着你||Wǒ dōuhuì yīrán péizhe nǐ||I am totally committed to you|
|我想你,想着你||Wǒ xiǎng nǐ, xiǎngzhe nǐ||I miss you, missing you|
|不管有多么的苦||Bùguǎn yǒu duōmede kǔ||No matter there the pain|
|只要能让你开心||Zhǐyào néng ràng nǐ kāixīn||If I can make you happy|
|我什麽都愿意||Wǒ shíme dōu yuànyì||I willing to do anything|
|这样爱你||Zhèyàng ài nǐ||This is how I love you|
