One of Myanmar's most famous popstars Phyu Phyu Kyaw Thein stands at the bow of a ship, her arms aloft. She's belting out one of pop culture's most unforgettable, some would say unforgiveable melodies. But this is a bit different. And it's not just that the ship is a few sizes smaller than the Titanic. It's one of Phyu Phyu's extensive repertoire of copy-songs, a phenomenon that has come to dominate the Burmese music industry. The formula is simple. Take an international hit, add some fresh lyrics and then release to an eager public.

Burmese 'copy songs'

Have a look on Youtube, Myanmar songs, I am sure you will find it there but if not I am sure a local poster can link you to the top tunes of the moment.
