Singapore National Day music video 2008: We Can Be Heroes

I missed our National Day ‘cos I was away for this. Anyway, here’s a music video:


Produced by a Singaporean company and the National Heritage Board:

This year’s video is unique compared to those produced previously. It takes the form of an original song, written and composed by SPINN, a leading video production company in Singapore . This is the second successive year that this 11-year old company has won the pitch with the National Heritage Board (NHB) to produce the National Day video.

This 4-minute video in English celebrates the ordinary heroes in Singapore – the Singaporeans who have contributed to making Singapore what it is today – whose contributions may have sometimes gone unnoticed. It features the young, the old, those with special needs, those who have contributed to the community and the country through what they do and their selflessness.


So refreshing to have a rock sounding version for a NDP song.

And very nicely produced too. Must have taken lots of effort, judging from the production quality. I won’t be surprised if they get more jobs after this. They’re good.

Hmm… Maybe next year the NDP organisers will have a “make your own MTV” event as part of the celebrations. And make it a remix/ mashup effort too. Let people deposit video or music clips, for others to remix.
