‘Miss Dong (董小姐, Dǒngxiǎojiě)’ was included in Chinese indie pop record label Modern Sky’s 15th anniversary album, Modern Sky 7 (摩登天空7, Módēng tiānkōng 7), released on December 27, 2012.
25-year-old Beijing singer-songwriter Song Dongye (宋冬野, Sòng Dōngyě) said this song is based on a conversation with a female photographer friend who looks vulnerable but has a strong heart due to life experiences that are very different from those of an average person.
Although this indie pop song has been popular among Chinese “artistic youth” [hipsters] for some time, it didn’t reach the broader public until Zuo Li (左立, Zuǒ Lì), a contestant of Super Boy (快乐男声, Kuàilè nánshēng) covered the song on the June 29th episode.
At time of translation, this song has generated 2,744,924 listens on Xiami.
