"I Love Beijing Tiananmen" (simplified Chinese: 我爱北京天安门; traditional Chinese: 我愛北京天安門; pinyin: Wǒ ài Běijīng Tiān'ānmén), formerly transliterated as "I love Peking Tiananmen", is a children's song written during the Cultural Revolution era of People's Republic of China.

History[edit]

This song was part of the daily routine for many primary schools. It would be sung, following "The Internationale" and "The East is Red".

This song was used as background music in the 1995 Japanese homebrew SNES game, Hong Kong 97. The game, whose plot involved the Transfer of sovereignty over Hong Kong in 1997, had a strong anti-Communist China sentiment and the song was used as a parody.
