5 Songs That Perfectly Capture The Way Singaporeans Feel About The MRT

By  November 28, 2017

Nothing spells inefficiency like a whole Wikipedia page chronicling your every mishap dating back to 2011. That is the current state of Singapore’s once-exemplary Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) which locals have now learned to know and loathe.

Imagine you were going on your merry way to a major national examination, notes in hand only to be halted dead in your tracks due to a “traction power fault” which resulted in a 2-hour train service disruption and affected up to 70,000 commuters. One in ten of the students late for that particular A-level happened to be you. 

It’s a rite of passage/an inconvenient truth/part of the circle of life to be disappointed by the second oldest metro system in Southeast Asia – is one even Singaporean if they haven’t somehow been burdened by it? SMRT has attained peak levels of #fail in 2017 so we’re here to serve up several relatable remedies which might either temporarily soothe your transportation sorrows or just stoke your fury even more.     

 

1. Stressed Out –Twenty One Pilots

Presumably, your nerves are already on edge from the daily pressures of education or employment so it really doesn’t help that the faceless SMRT Corporation insists on diverting your regularly scheduled route, putting you on the spot and forcing you to overcome the mental hurdle of deciphering which of the bus services you rarely take is the speediest solution. You might develop a schizophrenic secondary personality like Blurryface just to cope with the added stress or even decide that adult tricycles are the answer.

 
 

2. See You Again – Wiz Khalifa ft. Charlie Puth

As much as everyone would like to steer well clear of a tragic accident, it is undeniable that the Joo Koon collision last week raises alarms about lapses in safety, the first in 24 years and let’s not forget the added risk of lightning striking twice.  Never has Singapore’s transportation system bore more resemblance to the nightmarish hellhole depicted in that one Korean film about a train. With delays averaging at 2 hours, it’s difficult nowadays to describe your commute as anything less than an arduous journey that necessitates a farewell ballad and one which could very well be your last. 

 
 

3. Apologize – Timbaland ft. One Republic

Transport Minister Khaw Boon Wan has made himself an easy target for public dissatisfaction. From his derisive comments about press coverage to his apparent fondness for shifting the blame in the direction of anyone else but himself, it took 29 injured commuters to pry out an apology from the man/meme himself. Too little too late, sir.

 
 

4. Power – Kanye West

Let me preface this by stating for the record that I am in no way qualified to talk economics. So correct my humble observation that last year’s privatisation of a public good (aka the backbone of Singapore’s transport system) hasn’t exactly done wonders for the common man. The falsification of maintenance records and the reluctance to call a spade a spade is surely symptomatic of a complacent, profit-based organisation who might not necessarily be motivated to excel seeing that competition is little to none. 

 
 

5. Taxi – The Maine

And in the backseat when you asked me

"Is the sadness everlasting?"

I pulled you closer, looked at you and said

“Love, I think it is”

As the last resort and your wallet’s biggest enemy, Grab/Uber’s surge pricing on any other day should be a deterrent but desperate times call for desperate measures and it doesn’t seem like the our MRT woes are going away anytime soon. crying
