"Walking on the Chinese Wall" is a song by Philip Bailey released as the third single from his album Chinese Wall in 1985. The song was written by Roxanne Seeman and Billie Hughes. Seeman and Hughes met just after she returned from China and he returned from Japan. Feeling inspired by the East, Hughes asked Seeman to write something "Chinese" for a new piece he had composed. Having walked on the Northern Gate of The Great Wall, outside of Beijing, Seeman wrote these lyrics. Drawing from her studies of Chinese arts and literature, Seeman makes references including the I Ching ("Book of Changes") and Dream of the Red Chamber (one of the Chinese Four Great Classical Novels).
In 1998, Sony Germany released a Philip Bailey compilation album entitled "Walking on the Chinese Wall."
