The older songs can weave in patriotic ideas and still sound good, but the recent songs have been disappointing. Maybe it's just that being proud of your country works better than being proud of "Singapore". Getting talented singers to try and make it more appealing doesn't help much, as seen with the YOG cheer.
    I actually refer to the one sung by JJ.

    Yup, unless one can produce top notch photograph when given the chance to shoot there. If not, it wouldn't help in anyway.

    It is just a good place to gain some experience.

    Its still there, i can see it. Anyway, the poll might not be reflective of the actual turn out, seems like many tickets are already bought by the govt. organisations.

    The YOG song puts me off. Such a talented Local artist made to sing that stupid song.. Dun tell me its composed by him too ?
    JJ Lin only wrote the melody of the song.

    Source: my paper article "JJ Lin takes YOG cheer jeers in his stride" (dtd 30/6/10)

    "In an exclusive e-mail interview with my paper, Lin, who is based in Taiwan, says that he didn't write the words for the cheer - only its melody.

    A spokesman for the SSC said that the lyrics were written by Mr Kelven Tan, SSC's chief of sports marketing, and composer Lucky Heng, from Touch Music."

    What's this yogi thing? Some cheap pirated version of the olympics? Nobody cares about winter olympics/paralympics, and certainly not this yogi.

    When other states host world sporting events like olympics or world cup they will improve their own infrastructure and transport system. Here instead of improving the roads the govt make all vehicles give way to the stupid busses. Instead of building proper accomodation the atheletes are housed in student hostels. Because of this the semester schedule have to be compromised.

    Unless singapore pools is involved no one will be interested.

    Very efficient indeed, including issuing of rubbers..

    As if the overseas youth doesn't know where to buy rubber.. Or maybe they're trying to increase GDP by promoting some kind of "services" there?..... subtle advertising.. hmm

    Keeping replaying those MVs and expect the population to be interested? So easy? Until now, I've not seen even ONE sportsman who will be representing SG in the games, introduced on TV. Or a documentary about YOG or anything along that line. The only message I hear is how to be gracious and give way on the roads. Geez..
