It will soon be the day where we affirm that “this is country, this is our flag”. Where we stand and sing proudly that “this is home, truly”. A time where we come together as “one Singapore, a nation strong and free”.
If you haven’t yet put it together, it’ll soon be National Day!
Nothing like the classics from National Days past to inspire that warm feeling we call Patriotism! So, to help that feeling along, we compiled the full list of National Day hits! This list features the work of Singapore’s best artists. You’re sure to know a name or two.

A Brief History on National Day Songs
A lot of Singapore’s culture is rooted in the traditions of the generations prior. Thus, a lot of the traditional songs aren’t in English. They can be found in languages such as Mandarin, Bahasa Melayu and Tamil.
Comparatively, this list has the more modern songs that are directed at an English-speaking crowd.
Since 1985, an Executive Committee designates one song as the National Day Parade theme song. This song is usually blasted over the airwaves, broadcast on radio and television. For this song to gain traction, it is normal to hear this designated song a month before the 9th of August.
