serve the people

I’m going to chalk this up to the WEIRDEST COINCIDENCE EVER, but it is really weird. Remember that video I made of Beijing? The song that I used for it is Serve the People by the Handsome Furs. It was almost an arbitrary choice — I’d been listening to the album on the plane and the song was in my head. The name of the song also¬†relates to China and to the book about the cooking school we went to, so I figured it made sense.

However, it was bizarre to read this — it turns out that the name of the album is from a book about the Beijing music scene, and the album cover is of the¬†Tuanjiehu water park in Beijing. Apparently the album is about the band’s experiences in China, which is extra weird. I had no idea!
