不解为何陈洁仪惨遭淘汰

陈洁仪是专业实力派唱将,这是我们大多数新加坡人有目共睹的。当年1998国庆庆典,我在国家体育场亲耳听到她现场演唱的爱国歌曲《家》。在现场50,000人面前,她没有怯场,而且歌曲从头唱到尾都丝毫没有走音。由此可见,她是有一定的演唱功力。

有中国媒体报导,说Kit在上个星期五中国湖南卫视台节目《我是歌手》第3季第2场演唱的《心如刀割》“全程走音、歌和旋律差了几十音分,几乎每一句都不够高”;是靠后期制作编辑修音才播出。就只有一位中国音乐评人这么说。再来,说她唱整首歌都走调,这太夸张了吧?因此我不认同,也不相信。

觉得他们500位现场摄影棚观众不懂得赏识她这把好声音,连她所属的经纪公司都认为这是一种炒作。两次都垫底。
对于她被淘汰,大多数人包括我都觉得真的"太~没~道~理了"。

可能是吃亏在歌手出场次序方面吧。

这个星期五第3场是踢馆赛。这次,陈洁仪将以“返场嘉宾”身份献唱,应该是一首英文歌曲。
3月会返回参加复活赛。

我说,撇开比赛不谈,单单听陈洁仪唱歌就已经是一种听觉享受了。
比赛歌曲旋律编排方面,我个人觉得没问题。

Kit比较艺术性质,而且有唱音乐剧背景,所以她多数唱的歌都是"静"的。
她会飙高音,可是她不愿意这么做(如果是为了赢比赛的话)。
就好比喝一杯沏好的中国茶一样;你得反复静静地听她唱歌,"看到画面"时,你才能感受到她唱歌时感情的投入。

Kit,加油。

Songs by Singaporeans

歌词挺有意思。我想,必定会引起不少人的共鸣。我,本来就是个不完美的人。I’ll be someone someday. 献给有理想的朋友。阔别歌坛2、3年,新加坡男歌手 - 石康鈞的新歌!

This is the new National Day 2010 theme song – “Song for Singapore”. Sung by US-based Singaporean singer – Corrinne May.

The song is a nice sentimental song but somehow I feel that it does not have that catchy punchy impact. The tune is quite low pitch.  Anyway, in my humble opinion, it is still s000o much better than last year’s song – “What do you see?” by rock band Electrico.

And that so-called YOG Cheer song.

Preferred 2008’s song – “Shine for Singapore” or 2006’s  – “My Island Home”.

The 1998 National Day song “Home” sung by Kit Chan was sooo good. Really, it has that sentimental effect that tug the heartstrings of overseas Singaporeans, making them homesick!!

If you are to really compare, I would say that there is nothing that beats the original version of “Count on Me Singapore”.

This National Day song was produced in 1986.

This is what I called the “Great Patrotic Singapore NDP Song”. 😀

The original version of “Count on Me Singapore” sung by Clement Chow.

Does anyone have 1986 “Count on Me Singapore” MTV which was often shown on television before National Day in mid-1980s? If you do, please do share by dropping a link in the comment box below this blog entry.

I seriously think that for sake of younger generations of Singaporeans today, we should urge MediaCorp to continue airing those MTVs every National Day! Don’t just air the NDP Theme Song MTV of the year lah. =p
