Korean Central News Agency of DPRK

    Pyongyang, November 5 (KCNA) -- "Song of Eight Views in Songun Era" was written by Sin Un Ho and composed by Ri Kwang O in the Democratic People's Republic of Korea. Every stanza of the song about the eye-opening views of Korea in the Songun era is full of the spirit of the era and optimistic feelings.
    The words reflect well the tremendous changes which have taken place across the country under Kim Jong Il's leadership based on Songun politics.
    The pentachord song is easy to sing.
    It consists of eight stanzas.
    The first stanza eulogizes the sunrise over Mt. Paektu seen from Janggun Peak, which is marked with footsteps of llustrious commander Kim Jong Il.
    The second and third sing of the snow-clad military post covered with young pine trees and royal azaleas on Chol Pass associated with feats of Kim Jong Il, who is carrying forward the tradition of giving importance to military established by President Kim Il Sung.
    Depicted in the fourth, fifth and sixth are the brightly-lit night view of the River Jangja flowing through Jagang Province, Ulrim Waterfalls and rezoned Handre Plain.
    A sea of potato flowers on Paektu Plain in Taehongdan and a beautiful view of Poman-ri are lauded in the 7th and 8th stanzas.
    The song is a masterpiece of particular note in the history of national music.
