Singing the most efficient Battle Song: Red is the East (Chang zhan'ge: Dongfang hong 唱战歌：东方红)
As it was considered “the most powerful song” (Chinese Literature 1970.1:108-113), or a most efficient “battle song” 战歌 (Zhaoxia 1974.4:3, ill. 2.3), many stories, comics and other publications during the Cultural Revolution would mention it and the happiness which its message entailed for China. One such story, for example, describes a sent-down youth, quite eager to recreate his village after the model of model village Dazhai 大寨 (in Eastern Shanxi), who writes that every time he would be hearing Red is the East, a smile would immediately appear on his face 家属听了这声, 露出了幸福的笑容 (Geming Jiebanren 1974.3:44 “春山常青”).
