Fun Pack Song: The Nightmarish Musical Experience of 2011

Posted by Grey Thursday, July 7, 2011

Behold. The butchery of Lady Gaga's global anthem in Singapore's National Day Parade. Bad Romance just got way too BAD.

JJ Lin, the mostly mediocre Mandopop singer-songwriter from Singapore must be thrilled. For his god-awful Singapore YOG Cheer for the 2010 Summer Youth Olympics (YOG 2010) has finally been outdone.

During a rehearsal at this year's National Day Parade of Singapore celebrating Singapore's 46th year of independence, "Fun Pack Song", a song about your trusty little freebie goodie bag and its oh-so-precious contents during its give-away at the event, was the source of numerous Singaporeans' horrors when they attended last Saturday's rehearsal. The two-and-a-half-minute video clip went viral with overwhelmingly negative comments aiming on the incredibly, for lack of a better word, stupid lyrics saddled on the popular track. In response, the Ministry of Defence of Singapore released a media statement, indicating that they did not realise that the rights obtained for usage of the track did not include rights to modify the lyrics of the song.

Here's what Colonel Ong Tze-Ch'in, chairman of the NDP 2011 Show Committee, has to say: "We're in the process of working with the recording and publishing company to try to secure the rights to modify the lyrics and until then we will not perform the song.

"We'll revert to the usual format of having the show host to announce the various Fun Pack items. Every year for NDP in the pre-parade segment, the show host always comes forward to introduce different Fun Pack items. So what we did this year is to try to do it in a fresh and light-hearted way because this year we're taking a musical concept, so we hoped for a fresh and light-hearted approach to introduce these Fun Pack items."


Incidentally, Lady Gaga happened to be in Singapore today for the SingTel AMPed 'Born This Way' Lady Gaga showcase and we kind of secretly hoped that an inept local reporter can get his/her journalism altogether and pop her the question on what's her thoughts that her global mega-hit, "Bad Romance" has been butchered into "Fun Pack Song".

Watch the unspeakable horror that is the live performance of the terrible track at YouTube (the rights to embed were somehow disabled). Written by Haresh Sharma, here's the lyrics of the song for you to croon to the tune of Bad Romance.

Oh o o o o o o o o
Time for the fun pack song
Oh o o o o o o o o
We like the fun pack song
Let's start with the bag
That's right, grab your bag
It's the fun pack bag
Attack the fun pack
(REPEAT)
Hold up your flag, don't you forget
You can wave it if you feel like it
Let's wave the flag
Wave wave wave
Let's wave the flag
Take out your light stick, it's two of a kind
It's interactive, means you can join
Just pretend
Oh oh oh... It's a disco
(SPOKEN)
You know that I want you
And you know that I need you
I want a wet, wet tissue
I want Newater and I want a cold drink
You and me, let's share a bit
I want a biscuit and I want a sweet
You and me, let's share this treat
Kopi-O o o o o o o o o
Time for the fun pack song
Kopi-O o o o o o o o o
We like the fun pack song
Let's start with the bag
That's right, grab your bag
It's the fun pack bag
Attack the fun pack
I want Newater and I want a cold drink
You and me, let's share a bit
I want a biscuit and I want a sweet
You and me, let's share this treat
Kopi-O o o o o o o o o
Time for the fun pack song
Kopi-O o o o o o o o o
We like the fun pack song
Let's start with the bag
That's right, grab your bag
It's the fun pack bag
Attack the fun pack!
