Malaysia vs Singapore

Let's compare:
Malaysia
28/2 Fort Minor
Singapore
24/1 Backstreet Boys
16/2 Franz Ferdinand (f*cking brilliant!)
23/2 Oasis
1/3 Fort Minor
23/3 Placebo

These are the international acts that play in my homeland and the 'beloved' neighbour in the past few months or the near future. Well, see the difference? Guess Malaysia isn't that boleh anyway.


However,

Juicebox Single

"...Kauai or Oahu, Molokai and Lanai.
Maui and the big guy, aka Hawaii.

Cut off from Malaysia back in who knows when...

Oh, we got kinda lost, but my god, what a place.
I profess, Airforce jets cannot take away my soul."

(Exerpt from The Strokes' Juicebox B-side Hawaii)


At least The Strokes know the existence of Malaysia, which makes this so-called Boleh-land slightly cooler.

i think the reason why there's more international acts in Singapore, its because the MTV was based there. if its the other way around, we got more international acts coming to our country and jammed too.

then again, do you think there's any Malaysians who would enjoy Oasis? Malaysians only like boy bands and handsome no talent one hit wonder. see the diff?
