In Search For The Best Singapore Mandarin NDP Theme Videos (2008-1998) – Ever!

August 9th, 2008 by Wai Loong (Add Your Comment)

Attention Singaporeans!  Do kindly leave me your comments in support for my work in this compilation!  If you like them, do share this post with all your family and friends!  Thank you so much and may all Singaporeans enjoy greater economic stability and cultural growths for many many years to come!

I’ve been working real hard overtime for the past week and boy, am I relieve to take a break last night home for dinner!  Within hours, I was knocked out and i had to miss the 11pm replay of the Olympics grand opening ceremony on Channel U.  Fortunately, I had a small glimpse of Bejing Olympics opening ceremony this afternoon and I must say it’s a big “WOW“!

Can you imagine Li Ning as the final torch-bearer to run hanging in the air to light the great torch of the grand olympics?  The speed of the lighting was simply, simply magnificent!

As I’m writing this post, the sky is getting darker and it looks like a rain is arriving soon!

Strange as it might seem, it hash only rained once on NDP in the history of Singapore’s past 42 National Day.  Will this year be an exception or will the nation be as lucky again?

My bet that it will be clear sky by 6pm (as I’m writing this at 3.00pm), but from the looks of the sky now (5.30pm), it is getting worse…  Well, we shall see later!

Well for now, let me attempt to uncover some of the best Chinese NDP videos ever developed here in Singapore!

1. Singapore National Day NDP 2008 Theme Song –
晴空万里 MV By Local Singer Joi Chua 蔡淳佳

Without a doubt, this year’s National Day theme song is none other than Joi Chua’s “晴空万里“.  The English version has been covered in my previous article so today’s focus is all Chinese based.

Searching for a decent copy of the “晴空万里” has not been an easy task.  As I mentioned in my previous artice, a lot of videos has been duplicated without taking any serious work to improve the audio quality.  Fortunately, the following ones ranks well above all others with Joi’s vocal heard loud and clear.

Music lovers will love my compilation in this edition because I’ve found the high quality version of this song on IMEEM, a social music networking site.  With a little effort, I have gotten this song on my mobile phone now.

Lyrics: “晴空万里
什么是默契
我们同时仰望夜空的时序
同时被一颗星指引
无论哪里 它陪着我 第一时间回到熟悉

什么是勇气
手握着手笔形成世界新领域
就凭一颗心可以打造奇迹
再高的天也触手可及

*晴空晴万里 满载真心
就算有风雨 我们的力量像恒星

齐心合力 微弱的光芒也能燎亮天际
#晴空行万里 让梦探寻
明天的歌曲 来自每个人的声音
坚定不移 只要紧靠一起

什么是四季
常年彩虹 画出彩色的回忆
在这赤道旁的岛屿 小小面积
没有什么比家更美丽

用我们的勇气 照耀着天际
拥抱晴空万里

If you’re interested in getting a copy of this song, I can show you (in a future article) the techniques how you too can create a copy for yourself using simple to understand methods that I’ve uncovered.

2. Singapore National Day NDP 2007 Theme Song

None.

Somehow Singapore missed the creation of a Chinese Theme Song (or have I missed out somewhere?) for NDP 2007.  I was pretty curious why no one ever object to this, especially when the Chinese lanaguage was gaining momentum here but the general English speaking folks still do not get it somehow.

Not sure what I’m talking about?  Check out my eariler post for the sake of yourself and you next generation.

3. Singapore National Day NDP 2006 Theme Song – “幸福的图形”
English Title: “My Island Home”
By Kaira Gong (
龚诗嘉)

I really love this tune.  It’s a lot soothing compared to its English counterpart.  What about yours?  Do we happen to share the same sentimental towards this song?

Lyrics “幸福的图形”:

绿色岛屿
洋溢家的气息
温心也炫丽
独有的风景

美丽岛屿
有爱也有回忆
不管我身在哪里
都忘不了这里

绿色岛屿
洋溢家的气息
温心也炫丽
独有的风景

美丽岛屿
有爱也有回忆
不管我身在哪里
都忘不了这里

(Chorus 副歌:)
我们用爱
跨越风雨
打造奇迹
梦想在这里成形
未来
更值得去憧憬
我相信
幸福是这岛屿的图形

美丽岛屿
充满爱和鼓励
未来的双翼
带梦想飞行

(Repeat Chorus x2 重复副歌 x2)

未来
更值得去憧憬
我相信
幸福是这岛屿的图形
我们用爱
跨越风雨
打造奇迹
梦想在这里成形
未来
更值得去憧憬
我相信
幸福是这岛屿的图形

美丽岛屿
充满爱和鼓励
未来的双翼
带梦想飞行

(Repeat Chorus x2 重复副歌 x2)
未来
更值得去憧憬
我相信
幸福是这岛屿的图形

4. Singapore National Day NDP 2005 Theme Song – “勇敢向前飞
By
Rui En (芮恩)

Lyrics: 勇敢向前飛 (Reach Out For The Skies)
芮恩〈新加坡歌手〉

面對失落和徬徨 下一站會怎樣
未知的角落 我們勇敢探索

擁有堅定的信念 追尋驕傲的成果
所有夢和希望 是最大的收穫

要勇敢向前飛 團結就是把握
心連心不錯過 天空依然遼闊

要勇敢向前飛 同心就能突破
心連心不錯過 明天的夢 會閃爍

~
多少美好的生活 要試著去掌握
未來並不遙遠 别讓年少虛過

多少希望與線索 有目標不退縮
朋友和家園 是幸福的承諾

要勇敢向前飛 團結就是把握心
連心不錯過 天空依然遼闊
要勇敢向前飛 同心就能突破
心連心不錯過 明天的夢 會閃爍
~Ha.. Yeah…

心連心不錯過
明天的夢
會閃爍
~
勇敢向前飛!

每一次我感到徬徨
不自禁就会回头望
我知道心中有个地方
一定会有一盏灯

全凭生命河流来导航
一起登陆理想

7. Singapore National Day NDP 2002 Theme Song – “一起走到
By Stephenie Sun Yan Zi (孙燕姿)

Lyrics: 一起走到
By: 孙燕姿

曲:李迪文
詞:梁文福

是否還記得 從前美麗的天色
那時天很藍 我們的未來都在
不遠地方晴朗著

一切都變了 生命不只是快樂
濃濃黑霧 籠罩我們 暴風雨
就要來了

但誰說不能 肩併著肩 站穩
我們用心和用愛 創造 讓新
的世界誕生

在我心中我知道 這是永恆的長跑
好不容易 來到這裡
明天還要追更多榮耀
把自己角色扮演好 全力以赴每一秒
和我的家人和我的朋友
向著目標 手牽手 一起走到

這又是起點 我們有一樣心願
當我們團結 狂風巨浪也不能
阻擋我們走向前

誰害怕改變 只要緊握著信念
心中有夢 沒有遙遠 跨出去
就在瞬間
但誰說不能 肩併著肩 站穩
我們用心和用愛 創造 讓新
的世界誕生

在我心中我知道 這是永恆的長跑
好不容易 來到這裡
明天還要追更多榮耀
把自己角色扮演好 全力以赴每一秒
和我的家人和我的朋友
向著目標 手牽手 一起走到

~

在我心中我知道 這是永恆的長跑
在我心 我知道 好不容易 來到這裡
明天還要追更多榮耀
把自己角色扮演好 全力以赴每一秒
和我的家人和我的朋友
向著目標 手牽手 一起走到~

每当我觉得孤寂  庆幸还有个城市属于
属于自己的天地  不论雨或晴一定在这里
把我心事全部收齐  等着我不定归期
熟悉的热天气和热情都是暖意

每当梦想不够近  庆幸还有朋友在一起
创造未来的绮丽  不论悲或喜全都没关系
把我情绪全部抚平  看着我重现笑语
青草地当作衣穿成我心情  全都属于

Chorus:
属于自己  属于我们的天地  有爱有梦有情
还有成长岁月的点滴  交织成温馨一季
属于自己  属于你我的天地  有爱有梦有亲情
我要让全世界知
我的骄傲依旧是这个属于我的繁华都市
