    This is a living testament of HOW FRIGGIN' CLUELESS, AND DISTANT SMRT IS FROM REALITY!!!

    Yes, it's the SINGLE MOST ANNOYING, EMBARRASSING, AND TASTELESS thing SMRT has come up with to date.

    Whenever I hear that, I cringe. I look at the guy next to me, and he's cringing too.

    It reminds me of a Twilight Zone episode where some 50's America TV ad tune ("Train is COMMINGGGG") plays in the background before SOMETHING BAD IS ABOUT TO HAPPEN. An extremely INAPPROPRIATE thing for a public subway.

    In short, Stupid, Moronic, Ridiculous, and Tasteless.

    Not only trying too hard, but trying their best to irritate people with totally mindless ideas that they thought was fantastic. I thought smrt lost their mind when I first heard it

    you got

    - 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 ...
    Yeah .. the one on using the lifts when carrying bulky items. This one is damn "duh" ... and with all the announcements spam - SMRT is tantamount to abusing the PA system and spamming. Frankly I detest this more than the email spams

    Well... after playing the music for a few more months, SMRT would have reason to charge commuters more because they take the time to record the music and played it (these are not free, and so they claim)...

    dude, if a person wish to suicide, you think a STUPID song like this can stop him/her? maybe this person he dont want to suicide, but after hearing that song "omg !! wat a crazy world !!" he cant stand it anymore and jump.


    underground MRT stations have doors so there's unlikely ppl will jump down.
    please visit JE or BB, they have barricade now. but it isn't difficult for people to climb over. it purpose is to prevent people ( who is sick or pushes by people from behind) from falling over.

    If people are willing to give way we wont have these kind of songs. Look @ those poor MRT staffs @ Bishan have to keep shouting, beeping to have those people move out of the way. These are the people to blame, not the MRT.

    the gap used to be quite big and yes, you can put your foot in. but then now the train is bigger and they also done some "cement" works on the platform, hence the gap looks smaller .
