Is this the worst-ever NDP song? | What’s buzzing? - Yahoo! News via @yahoosg

Please do not allow this song to be used for National Day or for any event in Singapore. It is horrendous and the lyrics are unbecoming and nonsensical. If we have to be laughed at by the world, please let it be for a better reason than this.

I would be ashamed if I came up with this song for my kid's class concert. To think that this is to be used for celebrating National Day is quite frankly unthinkable.... This song makes me ashamed to be Singaporean. I have seen commercial jingles which are 1000 times better...... Totally speechless....
