Steven Spielberg made a film in 1987 called " Empire of the Sun"
For those few that perhaps don't know, the film was set in Shanghi during the war and centred upon the survival of a British Schoolboy( a very young Christian Bale) in a
Japanese prisoner of war camp.
The musical theme weaving throughout the film is, I always thought, somewhat of a strange one
as it is an old Welsh Lullaby, " Suo Gan"
Suo Gan quite literally means lullaby in Welsh.
I know it's lazy blogging but as I'm working tonight and tomorrow night
I thought I would post a video of the great Bryn Terfyl
A rough translation of the first verse is below
Sleep my darling,
Harm will never come to you,
Mother's arms enfold you safely
Mothers heart is ever true
As you sleep, there's naught to scare you
Naught to wake you
Close your eyes
