    Default NDP Song 2013

    Not quite as catchy... But not every year can get a "Home" or "We are Singapore" lah...

    oh yeah oh yeah
    This is the best our composers can do? Which is worse?
    Repeating the name "Singapore" ad nauseam in some of the old national songs. Or the above NDP 2013 song?

    As a comparison, here are national songs of two different countries. Complete with lyrics.
    Both are melodic with meaningful lyrics.
    Note the absence of endless repetition of the country's name in the lyrics. No banal stuff like repetition of "wooh-ho-oh, oh,oh!"

    My Country, 'Tis of Thee'
    ------------------------
    My country tis of thee,
    Sweet land of liberty,
    Of thee I sing.
    Land where my fathers died!
    Land of the Pilgrim's pride!
    From every mountain side,
    Let freedom ring!


    My native country, thee,
    Land of the noble free,
    Thy name I love.
    I love thy rocks and rills,
    Thy woods and templed hills;
    My heart with rapture fills
    Like that above.


    Let music swell the breeze,
    And ring from all the trees
    Sweet freedom's song.
    Let mortal tongues awake;
    Let all that breathe partake;
    Let rocks their silence break,
    The sound prolong.


    Our father's God to, Thee,
    Author of liberty,
    To Thee we sing.
    Long may our land be bright
    With freedom's holy light;
    Protect us by Thy might,
    Great God, our King!

    It started a long time ago. Got ppl laugh at the 1812 Overture played with actual cannon blast.

    sigh... I was born in the wrong century, where all real artists has passed away.
