A rare thing indeed to come across a pop song that addresses the social issues of Singapore but Shannon Luke has done exactly that with his latest single, “The Survey”.
Musically, the song hearkens back to the ’80s with its smooth pop inflections with arty rock undertones.
Lyrically, the chorus laments the ignorance of society to accept what has been spoon fed to them by the powers that be.
“As each day goes by/I wonder why/As the day goes by/I can’t stand why/Busybody streets that lie low/How come they all don’t know?”
All told, a unique achievement in a music scene that usually seen but not heard.
