Infamous Bus Number 8 – Fast 8 by Jazz Chaunchuen

Bus Number 8

In Bangkok, bus number 8 has the dubious notoriety of being voted the worst bus service on a facebook survey from passengers about, among other complaints,  not stopping for passengers, driving too fast and erratic. This song is just a bit of fun making light of the situation, but in doing so, bringing a little more attention to the situation. If you think it might be fun to try, keep in mind its not just one bus, bus number 8 is actually a bus route that has more than 70 buses servicing the route. So there is no single bus number 8 to experience what its all about. 

Enjoy the English translation of this song by the popular Jazz.
