Thread: "Train is COMMINGGGGGGG" song at MRT

  1. #1

    Default "Train is COMMINGGGGGGG" song at MRT

    Just out of curiosity, how many brother and sisters actually liked the "Train is Cominggg..." song the MRT stations played when the trains arrived at the station?

    Eventually it will become such an ear-sore one day... It doesn't matter if the song is likable or not...

    It's annoying...just wish they quickly sing and get it over and done with... -1 to train ride experience.

    It is not the intention that matters...but the tactic of employing a song that is to be played over and over again whenever you ride the train...not to mention that it actually annoys some peeps... You can even imagine that you can request playing your favourite song...trust me... you'll be ear-sore of it after consistently playing it out loud for a few weeks straight...

    true true.. .everytime the song plays... everyone whud?? which side?? Can change one? I doubt you can have too many variations... one day you'll end up with a worser version like "oh yeah! oh yeah! hey!...."

    i tink they are using that to promote one of the local plays or musical right. If that is the case I actually think its a good idea, and does draw attention to the local production. it shows that there is flexibility in the management. just like the last time when they put the ripple strips in the trains during the grand prix season.

    but if it is permanent, then i think its going to get on my nerves.

    Oh I remember last time they used to say which side the door of the train was opening when it was approaching a station... But they used left and right, don't make sense at all. It depends on where you are facing...

    when i first heard the jingle, i thought it was a campaign to reduce suicide rates at MRT stations. i.e. ppl jumping onto the tracks.

    turns out to be this MRT graciousness campaign. still, i dont notice much difference.

    The sentence itself is not correct. It should not be "train is coming" it should be "the train is coming". Also since the song is played when the train is about to reach the platform it shouldn't be "coming" since that means it is on the way. It should be "arriving" which means it is almost here.

    "The train is ARRIVINGGGG"

    I wish they wouldn't use "Mind The Gap" announcements also. It's not like the gap for our MRT like dem big like that. In UK, you really can put whole foot (and maybe more) and I think the warning is warranted but here.. maybe drop $1 coin in?

    Was wondering , is our train system the most naggy in the world ?

    you got
    - train is coming
    - be vigilant to terrorist
    - don't lean against the train door
    - no eating / drinking
    - mind the gap
    - train transfer notice

    what else ?

    can't live without my noise blocking ear piece ...

    They can try this new one "Value your life. Think of your loved ones. Don't jump"

    Or, inside the trains when reaching each station: "Wakeeee UP! Wakeeee UP!...Don't miss your station, sleepyheads!"

    I simply don't understand why do they need to announce that the train is coming, couldn't anyone see that the train is approaching? They didn't announce that in bus stop, why do they need to announce it here.

    Plus... come on! the song is so obang and so freaking annoying... loud, noisy and stupid at best.

    Or on a more gruesome note.
