It seems that the severely inflated housing market has spawned a lot of recent creativity. From the popular soap opera about the scandalous things people to for real estate to the lonely bachelor who pitched a tent on the subway to protest high prices (and the effect it has on his love life), people have been finding artistic expressions for the toll exacted on society by high property values and crippling mortgages. The latest expression is the craftily catchy “Happy Lane” by Beijing folk singer Chuan Zi. While he might be a little wanting in his singing capacity, the intensity he brings makes up for it in spades.
