Sarah Brightman & Liu Huan – “You and Me”

Sarah Brightman & 劉歡 Liu Huan – “You and Me” (Beijing 2008 Olympic theme song )
Composer: 陳其鋼 (Chen Qi Gang)

Links to the live performance at the Beijing Olympic Opening Ceremony on 8 Aug 2008 are kept being disabled every day. Youtube only explains saying there’s a copyright claim by a third party. Videos uploaded by Sarah Brightman’s fans and netizens in mainland China (the CCTV recordings) are all taken down.

I don’t understand why the music video is allowed to circulate but not the live performance. (There are close to 100 posts of the MV on Youtube as of 13 Aug 2008.) How frustrating! I hope netizens will keep posting their recordings so the live version will remain “alive” in its truest sense.

LYRICS

我和你,心連心,同住地球村,
Wo he ni, xin lian xin, tong zhu di qiu cun
為夢想,千里行,相會在北京。
Wei meng xiang, qian li xing, xiang hui zai Bei Jing
來吧!朋友,伸出你的手,
Lai ba, peng you, shen chu ni de shou
我和你,心連心,永遠一家人。
Wo he ni, xin lian xin, yong yuan yi jia ren

You and me
From one world
We are family
Travel dream
A thousand miles
Meeting in Beijing

Come together
Put your hand in mine
You and me
From one world
We are family

來吧!朋友,伸出你的手
Lai ba, peng you, shen chu ni de shou
You and me
From one world
We are family
