    Because I saw the BIG 'Q' pasted on the platform glass doors of underground MRT when I first hear this song . . . . .

    the front of the train is always the direction the train is moving towards. so why would have trouble differentiating left from right?

    "The train is ARRIVINGGGG"
    I think "Train is approaching" is better. "Train is coming" is used becos of the melody of the music.

    How to reduce number of cars like this. Public transport are getting so noisy!!
    1) Aunties talking loudly as though the other person in china
    2) Kids blasting songs all around you. You are like listening to a remix of songs
    3) Some trains the announcements are FREAKING louder than usual
    4) Now we have this jingle. Haiz...

    You know what is really irritating? It's the terrorist video - if you notice, there'll be a part where it gets EXCEPTIONALLY loud (the part when the terrorist blows the bomb, and the whole train blows up + screams galore).

    For some reason, they've pumped up the volume only for that specific part. Now THAT is really irritating.

    Link to some interesting jingles @train stations around tokyo. They serve an important purpose cos the large number of trains arriving/departing at the stations. Our station has only ONE train at any time; in Tokyo can be very noisy with more than 1 train stopping in station.

    I retract my positive poll, as today morning take the train, while moving, inside also have those songs, telling people to move in and give up seats.......REAL IRRITATING!!!

    When things were over done, it will have negative effect.......

    As a sign of protest against that jingle, people will just NOT give up the seat. LOL

    Cannot Lah...that'll be penalizing the wrong group of people who really needed the seats.

    Got music complaint....no music also complaint....guess we must get use to this kind of expectation in Sg

    Personally I like the idea....hope SMRT take the feedbacks positively and continue to introduce more surprise in our day to day routine train ride

    i like the song.


    at least it's an alert to ppl out there that there's train coming and be aware don't jump down.



    seemed like only trains not travelling underground have this song.

    underground MRT stations have doors so there's unlikely ppl will jump down.

    I hate it and felt terribly offended (strangely?) when I first heard it. Thank goodness I'm wearing my earphones most of the time when I'm taking public transport.
