Mediacorp Ch 8 Drama Theme Songs of 2016


Theme songs can make the difference between good and memorable, and between bad and acceptable. Just imagine buried in your thankless cubicle mountain, when suddenly, without headphones or speakers on, you hear a booming rendition of The Climb. Yikes that’s terrible! Go away Miley, my gawdddd! And stop twerking! That was a touch of drama; showing how dramas cannot do without the accompaniment of music.

Thus, I have compiled this list of opening and ending Mediacorp drama theme songs, with video links wherever I can locate them. I’ve decided to give stars to those which stand out, either personally or thematically. I wouldn’t go further to give ratings, because music is so subjective and there’s really no need to start bickering over such things.

This list will be updated from time to time, upon airing of new dramas. All of them are Mediacorp productions, unless stated. They are arranged chronologically, by date of first airing. Here you go!

    • Hi Celeste! Sad to say, no luck here either :/ Seems that composers/lyricists like 乐声 and 邓碧源 don’t want to release digital recordings. Not sure about the getai singers for Peace and Prosperity though…
