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!

歌唱祖国
----------


五星红旗迎风飘扬,胜利歌声多么响亮;
歌唱我们亲爱的祖国,从今走向繁荣富强.
歌唱我们亲爱的祖国,从今走向繁荣富强.
越过高山,越过平原,跨过奔腾的黄河长江;
宽广美丽的土地,是我们亲爱的家乡,
英雄的人民站起来了!我们团结友爱坚强如钢.
五星红旗迎风飘扬,胜利歌声多么响亮;
歌唱我们亲爱的祖国,从今走向繁荣富强.
歌唱我们亲爱的祖国,从今走向繁荣富强
我们勤劳,我们勇敢,独立自由是我们的理想;
我们战胜了多少苦难,才得到今天的解放!
我们爱和平,我们爱家乡,谁敢侵犯我们就叫他死亡!
五星红旗迎风飘扬,胜利歌声多么响亮,
歌唱我们亲爱的祖国,从今走向繁荣富强.
歌唱我们亲爱的祖国,从今走向繁荣富强.
东方太阳,正在升起,人民共和国正在成长;
我们领袖毛泽东,指引着前进的方向.
我们的生活天天向上,我们的前途万丈光芒!
五星红旗迎风飘扬,胜利歌声多么响亮;
歌唱我们亲爱的祖国,从今走向繁荣富强.
歌唱我们亲爱的祖国,从今走向繁荣富强.

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.
