Moments ago I published the latest episode of the Chengdu Living Podcast, where we used this song, Same Dream China, as both the intro and outro. Gold Panda is outstanding, regardless of the China connection, but this was simply too good a fit to not use in the podcast. What makes it so great is that it has clear and distinct Chinese influence without being overly oriental-sounding, which would sound cliche as intro music to a China-themed podcast.
Since this song has no official music video, I used one of the several fan-made music videos for this song available on Youtube. This one’s particularly great because it features so many great shots of China.
