For the familiar childrens song One Penny has been changed to One Money, many netizens have been talking about it. Some people think that its not bad to keep pace with the times. Now dime is rare. How can children understand dime? Some netizens also said that this song is to spread the virtue of collecting money, and the classics will be handed down forever and need not be adapted. Others tease, is it necessary to change to pick up a two-dimensional code in the future?
Yangtze Evening News reporter to the music teacher of Nanjing Fangcaoyuan Primary School after verification, learned that this is not from the school textbooks. In the memory of many teachers, the song Penny has not appeared in textbooks for many years. On the microblog, there are also netizensnewspapers, which are childrens songs for freshmen in a primary school in Taiyuan, Shanxi Province, but there has been no official response.
Many netizens may not know that Penny came from Pan Zhensheng, a national composer and famous musician. Pan Zhensheng lived through ups and downs all his life. His happy old age was spent in Nanjing. In 1991, Pan Zhensheng was a member and vice-chairman of the CPC Group of Jiangsu Provincial Federation of Culture and Culture, and retired in 1995. Old couples are immersed in each other and their stepdaughters are filial. On May 14, 2009, he died in Nanjing at the age of 77 because of cerebral thrombosis, which was ineffective after multiple treatments.
A reporter from Yangtze Evening News interviewed the family of the original author, whose daughter, Mary, is a Nanyi teacher and flute player. Mary saw the screenshot in her circle of friends, and many friends came to ask her if she knew about the change of Penny.
I dont know at all. I dont think a regular publishing house will do such a thing, said Mary. Daddys song is about the innocence of the child. It has nothing to do with the price of the money he finds and gives it to the police uncle. Although it is the product of that era, classics are classics. We can still feel the painstaking efforts of the creators at that time when we sing them today. Wouldnt it sound awkward to sing like this? I dont think its necessary to pay any attention to such jokes or ridicules. I understand that people use this to make fun of or make fun of it and turn it into a paragraph. But now we sometimes dont respect our classical culture and do away with it at will, but we lack the ability of originality, which is not worth advocating.
In the interview, many music creators expressed such views, which influenced the classics of several generations and should not be changed. This is also a respect for cultural traditions.
You know what?
Donate a penny manuscript, No penny
I picked up a penny on the side of the road and handed it over to the police uncle... Where is spring, where is spring and other songs that accompanied the growth of hundreds of millions of children and adolescents are all written by Pan Zhensheng. He is known as the King of Childrens Songs in the contemporary era. His creation of a large number of childrens songs, more than 1,000 of which have been published and broadcasted in newspapers and radio stations all over the country. Among them, A Penny and Where is Spring have become world famous songs in the world childrens music world. He was awarded the Golden Record Award and other heavyweight awards by China Records Company. Since 1992, he has enjoyed the special allowance of the State Council.
Mary recalled the story of One Penny and said that because the song was so famous, Pan Zhensheng had the nickname Grandpa One Penny. In response to Chairman Maos call to learn from Comrade Lei Feng, the whole country was learning from Lei Feng. In 1965, a female editor of the Small Horn program group of the Central Peoples Broadcasting Station wrote to Pan Zhensheng to invite him to write a song in praise of good children. Pan Zhensheng was immersed in the memory of his music teacher when he received the letter of invitation. At that time, he worked as a team counselor in a primary school in Shanghai. On his desk, there was a stationery box filled with coins handed in by the children. The childrens unambiguous behavior of picking up gold often touched his heart. Although it is a penny or two, it reflects the childrens beautiful and pure innocence. At that time, the children lined up to go home. The traffic policemen kept traffic order outside the school. The children often walked far out of the school gate. They also turned back and waved to the traffic policeman and shouted, Good-bye uncle! Goodbye uncle!
Later, the Shanghai Museum of Public Security was set up to look for Pan Zhenshengs original contract letter and the score of One Penny. The other side offered a purchase price of 200,000 yuan. As a result, Pan Zhensheng said, The children give a penny to the police uncle. Of course, I also give this manuscript to the police uncle, not a penny! Pan Zhensheng said to police officer Sun of Shanghai Public Security Bureau who was preparing to build the Museum of Public Security, Dont come to Nanjing, Ill send it to you. Later, the manuscript and music of One Penny were appraised as the first-class cultural relics of the modern revolution by the Chinese Cultural Relics Bureau.
keep childlike innocence
Create endlessly all ones life
Mary told reporters that she has created childrens songs all her life, but when she sees that the children have no songs that can be passed on to each other, Pan Zhensheng feels worried every time she sees some singing competitions in which the children sing adultssongs, full of love. In the past, primary and secondary school students did not have music textbooks, and there were few songs suitable for children to sing. He decided to compile textbooks and create songs by himself. He regards it as his mission to guide children to grow up healthily and to shape a good mind.
Pan Zhensheng had more time to write after he was transferred to the Provincial Wenlian Federation and retired. The old mans workbench was occupied by the recording and production equipment he spent all his savings on. Pan, who had always pursued fashion, was still learning to make CDs with a group of young people in his old age and moved the recording studio to his home. He asks young people shamelessly, takes notes carefully, and also makes a guide for his own use. Internet songs such as Mouse loves rice have also been recorded in his textbook by Pan Lao.
In the eyes of his family, Pan Lao still maintained a childlike innocence. Mary remembers, The old man is not outdated, he can accept some fashionable things. He often plays games like Lianliankan and Bubble Dragon at home, because he is more anxious than my mother, and does not sleep at night with his palm-held computer.
Apart from the well-known childrens songs such as Duckling, A Penny, Good Mother, Where is Spring, Motherland We Love You, Pan Zhensheng still writes endlessly in this century. In his later years, Pan Zhensheng went to various places to collect folk songs, and accumulated 56 national new childrens songs over four years.
