by Guo Song
Guo Song (1931 to 2016) was a Chinese 'folk' singer/songwriter. Guo Song was born in Shenyang, Liaoning, China, in 1931. His music talents landed him a job with the Songjiangruyi Song and Dance Ensemble as a solo singer in 1953, and he rose to further fame in 1956 with a series of popular songs released to the Chinese public. He then served among the Heilongjiang Province Song and Dance Ensemble soloists, and later became a director of the Chinese Musicians' Association, as well as being vice-chairman of their Heilongjiang branch. He was also appointed head of the China Federation of Literary and Art Circles, as well as being a Northeast representative on the National People's Congress. A noted tenor exponent of Northeast China 'folk' song, he wrote and sang such titles as "Wu Su Li Chuan Ge" (featured here), "Xin Huolang", "Wo Ai Zhexie Nianqing Ren", "Yue Zou Yue Liangtang", "Chuanmen", "Tian Toule Zan Xinwo", "Shanshui Zuile Zan Hezhe Ren", "Xiao Kaile Man Jian Hua Zhouwen", "Da Ding Zi Shangao You Gao", "Yueya Wu Geng", "Wang'erjie Si Fu" and "Qiao Qinglang", amongst a total of more than 50 songs. Hospitalised since 2011 due to age-related illnesses, Guo Song died at the People's Liberation Army 305 Hospital in Beijing on May 19th 2016, at the age of 85. [ Translated from: ]

Hundreds of very talented musicians pass away each year, some without much recognition at all. On "Rest In Peace", I aim to give them a fitting 'send-off', with a decent Tribute. I hope you will join me in marking their passing.....
