This song was first sung by Zhang Qing Fang. I first heard it when I was in university almost 40 years ago. Miss Zhang was very impressive as a greenhorn back then but her shrill voice was a bit jarring and i didn’t really follow up with her.
Later, after graduation, I found this version by Gang Ze Bin. I think he sang it with more emotion. Soothing and melancholic. I prefer this version.
