The Wandering Songstress (天涯歌女) was first heard in the 1937 movie Street Angel (马路天使) where it was performed by the actress Zhou Xuan (周璇).

In 2007, Ang Lee featured the song in his film Lust, Caution (色戒).


From the end of the earth, to the farthest sea

I searched for my heart's companion

小妹妹唱歌 郎奏琴,
A young girl sings, while he accompanies her

郎呀, 咱们俩是一条心
Your heart is my heart

Looking north from my mountain nest

My tears fall and wet my blouse

小妹妹想郎 只到今,
Missing him, i will not rest

郎呀, 患难之交恩爱深
Only love that lasts through hard time is true

In life, who does not

Cherish the springtime of youth?

小妹妹似线 郎似针,
A young girl to her man, Is like thread to its needle

郎呀, 穿在一起不离分。

Ah my beautiful man we're like a threaded needle never to be separated

Pictures in Motion, the latest album from the electronic group The Shanghai Restoration Project, pays tribute to classic Chinese films with a collection of twelve mostly original compositions, each inspired by a different movie from the era. Primarily instrumental, the tracks reflect the mood and themes of each film.
