The 2010 Summer Youth Olympic Games will be held here in Singapore this summer. The Youth Olympic Village will be at Nanyang Technological University. The country has been gearing up for it for months, with banners, flags, signs, and countdowns all over the place. There's even a Youth Olympic Games song that has been playing over and over again, on TV and sometimes in stores. It is IRRESISTIBLY CATCHY, and after you hear it, you'll probably spend the rest of the day repeating "Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah, HEY! Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah, HO!" over and over in your head until you feel like you're about to go insane. At least that's what I do. Anyway, enjoy it. The song is called "You Are the One, Singapore" and it's written and performed by local artist JJ Lin.
It reminded me of the 2009 National Day song, which also got stuck in my head all the time (maybe I have a problem). I still really like the song, "What Do You See," which was performed by a local band called Electrico. I know that some people thought it was cheesy, but it still gives me goosebumps every time I hear it. You can see it here:
I watched the second video, but in my head I'm still saying "Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah, HEY!!!!"
