National day

It's that time of the year when we start feeling more patriotic than at any other time of the year.

We hear more National Day songs. On the radio, on the TV.

Even the kids are singing or humming them.

Some of these tunes are quite catchy.

Some are favourites from when I was in school.

Some are new.

Some are downright AWFUL!!

But do they have to come up with a new song EVERY YEAR??

I feel that they really don't have to.

With the ones that really hit "home", just use it for a few years, before introducing another.

And please, have a competition to choose the best each time you are introducing a new one.

We have lots of talented song writers out there which you may not be aware of.

Please DON'T just commission some one or group to come up with one, and use it!

And this is the song for this year. Let me know if you like it.

Majulah Singapura!!
