More on the song itself:
This song is called 八宝坑 which literally translates into English as ‘Eight Treasure Pit’. It is a hutong or small alleyway in Beijing where the material and recordings for the song were made. Legend has it that during the Qing Dynasty someone accidentally buried treasure underneath brick tiles in a deep pit somewhere in the hutong and this is where the name originates from.
