about

“Katong has always been a place to remember. Where the water is blue and the 'dara' are 'jelita'. Some jock from school once told me the girls are best in the east. So they say.

In 2005 Katong took on a different meaning. Serenaide's The Girl From Katong off their LP The Other End of The Receiver, hit and ended me in a crash. This delightful ditty serves to remind us of the idea of the romance for all things Katong. This I will never forget no matter how gentrification sets in now. To Katong.” - Eswandy

We have a common love for brilliant Singaporean bands and for this, we just had to cover/rework this track by Serenaide.

We do not sell this certain song. We are paying respect. We are paying tribute.

lyrics

She was the girl from Katong
Magical Marine Parade
I wanna sing you this song
Disappearing in a fade

She caught me looking at her
From the corner of her eye

Run over me, over you
She said run over you, over me

And in a blinding flash
We ended in a crash
I got her to her feet and then she smiled at me
