The “Song of Love for the People” was created in Juche 99 (2010) with poem by Yun Tu Gun and music by People’s Artist An Jong Ho.
The song warmly sings of the boundless devotion and efforts of the great leader Kim Jong Il who walked on and on for the happiness of the people.
The first and second stanzas of the song have such lines as “The General always asks first how the people feel” and “His first consideration goes to people”, which show well the love for the people of Kim Jong Il who always gave top priority to the people’s interests anytime and anywhere and devoted his uninterrupted meditation and efforts to the people.
Through the poetic expression “The feats of the General are all for the people only”, the third stanza sings that the life of Kim Jong Il devoted to build a people’s paradise on this land and defend their destiny is literally for the people.
Bright and warm yet earnest melody emphasizes well the ideological and thematic contents of the song.
Along with the immortal exploits of the great leader Kim Jong Il for the country and people, the “Song of Love for the People” will be remembered and sung by the Korean people forever as the song of praise for the great man and as the song of longing for him.
