Under The Vast Sky

HK protestors use songs with meaningful lyrics to boost 
their moral. This song, Under The Vast Sky is the most
sang on the streets of HK this year.

It is written by HK rock band Beyond in 1990s. It has
meaningful lyric and the melody is soothing.
Roy and friends tried to introduce song during 2 of
their CPF protest, but without much success. Could
it be because the song were not familiar to the
audience, many of which are elderly?  Perhaps the
song is not by local song writer, unlike HK which uses
their own song. 
But then I understand that HK did use the Les Miserable
song "Do You Hear The People Sing" with more success
than our local protestors.
Wonder what is the reason - S'porens protestors not
musically incline or too shy to sing in public ?
