Pyongyang, February 24 (KCNA) -- General Secretary Kim Jong Il issued a famous work "Let Us Compose Revolutionary Musical Pieces Which People Love to Sing" on February 25, Juche 79 (1990).
In the work, he underscores the need to create revolutionary songs inspiring the people to do their best in socialist construction as well as emotional songs reflecting diversified aspects of their life.
Noting that musical pieces conducive to educating the people in a revolutionary manner such as those about the Party, fatherland, socialist system, revolutionary traditions and national reunification should be created in large number, he clearly indicates ways for this purpose.
Since the work was published, many songs reflecting the spirit of the times have come out to further develop Juche-based musical art.
"Leader Is Eternal Sun of People", "Our Leader Will Always Be with Us" and "When We Walk along the Road between Fields" represent well all the Korean people's reverence for President Kim Il Sung.
"Our Comrade Kim Jong Il", "Thunder over Jong Il Peak", "General's Inspection Tour of the Front" and "Let Us Hold High the Red Flag" sing of Kim Jong Il's strong will to defend the red flag and pursue Songun politics.
Meanwhile, songs reflecting labor and sentiments of the people and those suitable to the era of Songun have also been created.
The songs are now encouraging the Korean army and people in the effort for the building of a thriving nation.
