A couple of months ago, we very successfully covered 4 Bob Dylan songs (Blowin' In the Wind I Shall Be Released, Like a Rolling Stone and Just Like A Woman) translated into Chinese, as well as a great poem by the poet Bei Dao called 回答 (The Answer) - which came out in 1976 just after the end of the Cultural Revolution.
Here are the documents

Hi guys! I just finally realized the perfect Chinese word for the "fall" we discussed yesterday, it is 落马，luo4ma3, which originally was used to describe someone falling down from their horse in battle leading to a big failure. Now it is THE WORD to describe the fall of politicians. For further information, check this dictionary-like webpage, and also a piece of news from Xinhua news agency which summarized all the 高官 who recently 落马。 And the last web link is from Hongkong Fenghuang reporting the north Korean politician who recently 落马 as well. http://www.baike.com/wiki/%E8%90%BD%E9%A9%AC http://news.xinhuanet.com/legal/2003-10/30/content_1150976.htm http://news.ifeng.com/world/special/zhangchengzeluoma/content-5/detail_2013_12/11/32022949_0.shtml
