Lao Shu Ai Da Mi

For the past week or two, I've been obsessed with this song that I discovered on YouTube. It's called 老鼠爱大米 (Lao Shu Ai Da Mi) or Mouse Loves Rice. It is/was hugely popular in China and throughout Asia, being sung by a million different singers in a bunch of different languages. My favorite is the remake done by Australian band North called "'Cos I Love You". In my quest to find all of its reincarnations, I have managed to find 16 different versions.

楊臣剛 (Yang Chen Gang) Version

24位绝对勇士 (24 Braves) Version

DJ版 Version

TrueGuy (YouTube) Version

Twins Mandarin Version

楊臣剛 (Yang Chen Gang) and 香香 (Xiang Xiang) Duet

王啟文 (Wang Qi Wen) Version

郭美美 (Guo Mei Mei) Version

郭美美 (Guo Mei Mei) Dance Remix

香香 (Xiang Xiang) Mandarin Version

Twins Cantonese Version

North - 'Cos I Love You

香香 (Xiang Xiang) English Version

美山加恋 (Miyama Karen) - ねずみは米がすき (Nezumi ha Kome ga Suki)

이소은 (Lee So Eun) - 사랑해요 (추가수록곡) (Sarang Haeyo)

Chhet Sovan Panha Version

Hope you all like this song... After listening to all of these in the process of uploading them to the web, I noticed that the songs I have labeled as Guo Mei Mei's Mandarin version and Xiang Xiang's Mandarin Version seem to be exactly the same. I downloaded them like that, so I don't know which person it actually belongs to. Or do they actually sound the same? If anyone knows the answer, please let me know!

Also, I have read that there is a Malay version by Siti Nurhaliza, but I have been unable to find it. If anyone has a copy or knows where I can get one, the info would be greatly appreciated.

Check out these other sites for some great information about the song, including its history and lyrics:
