The Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Song (Chinese: 蔣公紀念歌) was written to commemorate the Generalissimo and late President Chiang Kai-shek of the Republic of China. There are two songs: the second song was written by Hwang Yau-tai or Huang Youdi, Huang Yu-ti (黃友棣) in 1975, who later also wrote Chiang Ching-kuo Memorial Song in 1988.
The song was formerly popular for school choir competitions as students were required to memorize it. Since the 1990s, under the presidency of Lee Teng-hui, it has fallen into disuse, though most of the population still knows it. The song is also still played daily in the National Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall every morning. Occasionally, it can be heard during political campaigns as well.
