A pop song with the real virtue of Tang people: Just Do It! Not like the later generations, chinese would prefer thinking triple times before going( 三思而后行) .

The poem was also deeply related to a legendary woman Du Qiu(杜秋or杜秋娘), She often sung this song to her lord, and her life story was still known today because one the very famous poem , Song of Du Qiu(杜秋娘诗, by Du Mu/杜牧), her life story was sadly revealed in that poem.

劝君莫惜金缕衣,
劝君惜取少年时。
花开堪折直须折,
莫待无花空折枝。
