Please feel free to promote your country's entry to Edition 10, although try not to be too obvious!
My song is a pop/rock song .. although tbh it leans more to pop than rock and is essentially a light guitar pop song, kinda similar to my last entry The song is technically a cover but its the first time this song has had a proper release, as the original was a B-side on the single of another song but by a different artist, and I prefer this version anyway! It was released very recently, however has had little or no impact on the charts anyway as far as i'm aware, and I doubt many of you will know about it.
The lyrics are about the fact we should really be more appreciative of the things and people that surround us. Its by an artist who initially I really didn't like, but when I heard this song I changed my mind It's also not the song I originally was gonna send but I heard this one the morning before I submitted my song and knew I had to send it instantly, and in 2 days i've listened to it nearly 30 times
Anyway I hope you all like it as much as I do! And finally, good luck to everybody!
my promo is reminiscient of something older so i will quote it to make sense of it ...
My song this time is perfomed by a new rookie girl group which debuted on
stage this year on June. They've recently won the two biggest Music chart awards in Korea with the song I'll send, and has gained a lot of popularity among fans
One of the members, who is with no doubt the most envious performer of this group (not leader though), is also originally a former Wonder Girls-member.
She was 15 years old when she was selected by JYP Entertainment to be
part of Wonder Girls (2007), but couldn't survive the killer schedule of Korea's most popular (and still) girl group and decided to leave Wonder Girls in early 2008. She was the most popular Wonder Girls member
ANYWAY, now she's back as 17 and full of healthy energy
“the reason i picked my song was not only the fact i love it, but the fact its almost like the story of my life, cliché i know but every lyric within my song reflects something that i have been through (and usually come out of) “
This was said for the first edition and my 10th song kinda has the same vibe to it – it is much rockier than my first song. With more of a mantra feel to the first verse and chorus lyrics. Formalities and interpretations are the key to friendship but also ironically the key to lifelong enemies, this doesn’t help with the aid of self faults of which we all have – we are all human, or do we play the arrogant joker for a reason?
In this video the band are being trapped by others social disappointment as they have failed to meet their expectations. More like they are taken aback by the reaction of the failure of this social expectation. Is being coldly disjointed anti-social or is it being clever for the uproar that comes with communication? We are all different and to force someone to something they not should be frowned upon at all times – we need difference to sustain humanity.
It’s interesting how the band is rejoicing their rejection from mainstream society as they can be themselves. The music video itself contains 1 prop which I personally see as society constantly glowing on them – through day or night. But at the same time this prop illuminates the darkness, the punishment, the penance society has placed on them. The song amazingly depicts how paranoid phrases told about them are spread and the naivety of the population that believe it first time,just assuming from what they have heard is instantly the truth of which they swear by... this ladies and gents is the reason society and people as a generalisation are so paranoid and cruel at times.
I actually don’t like this band but the song I have picked is my favourite by a mile it’s so simple yet so perfect for life...
My song is one of my favorite ones ever . It means so much to me , and reminds me of moments I should've lived , but didn't really manage to live them.. The final verse of the song always makes me cry . It's a very sensitive song , that was originally written as an instrumental piece .
It's the first love song i send ; "love" , with the deepest sense of meaning..
I hope that you like my song !!
Good luck to everybody !!
MY SONG IS AWESOME
thats all i have to say
well that and not everyone is going to think its awesome ¬_¬
please do it enjoy the electro/pop/experimental that my group describe themselves as
It's an American female singer and the song is a ballad. A lovely ballad. In the text there are some elements from the Bible. I don't care about it, the song is just really beautiful.
SM this time is sending something different to everything we've sent before. It's a blues song, very atmospheric and melancholic, sang by a (American) female artist with a great voice and who has won many awards for that particular music genre.
The Hatican City entry is performed by a duo that you may have seen in the video of one of another participant's previous entries. Despite the local fervour for pop music, this song is actually in the field of rock.
It is worth noting that there is non-musical intro to this song. To skip it just go to 0:50 on the player.
Also, there is a famous movie actor in the video!
After Arbanas last place in the semi (worse than minas last placings in the finals ROFL) the country decided on a new concept for songs in our contest.
Why bothering about failing though u send in songs the country really loves... (our taste IS a bit different yeah [GO BELARUS JESC 09 xD])...
Arbana can do better...
This time its our time to ROCK this house....
and this time only 25 seconds shall bring the victory to our underwater country...
25 seconds of the BEST rock Arbana can offer...
"This entry will write history!", Arbanas citizens are sure...
Well, not exactly... My entry is an electro song by a non-American artist (weird for Fireflance, isn't it?) but at least the song's in English (which isn't weird for Fireflance, is it?). Some may find the video clip of this song a bit "repulsive" but I think it's a great video that's very clever and quite funny too! If you don't like the video then just ignore it and listen to the song! I'm sure it will stay in your minds for some time! Anything more I might say about the song might reveal it and there's no use to say that I love my song because obviously everyone does (which is why they send their songs I hope)!
By the way, just something I noticed, this time we are getting a lot of non-rock entries! After 2-3 contests ruled by rock this might be a good break
etis atis animatis!
State of the Ark has chosen a rock ballad (not unlike "Alone" though rockier) by a British rock band
The song isn't new, it was one of the band's greatest hits. In 2008 they performed at "Sweden Rock Festival"
My country's entry this time around is a Danish band fronted by a woman, singing in English. Wikipedia lists the bands style as pop, psychedelic pop, and alternative - make of that what you will. The song chosen was used as on a TV ad here in Hawstralia, and the song itself - if taken at face value - is all about someone wishing they could live in a different time.
Singer from Scandanavia singing in English. She basically sings a "come back, please" love song. It's got a lot of piano in it and the singer plays that piano. I bet most people here will recognize her and her earlier recordings.
P.S. She's not from Eurovision, I don't cheat that way. *cough*
One last thing, how about for this special edition we shake things up a bit? Maybe fulfill Thomas' wish and flash 1-9, yes 9, and read 10, 11, 12 aloud?
Or maybe we should make the entries anonymous
After failing to reach the final this time, Moofistan is having a change from its ballads and is sending a pop song from a certain ITV programme, which looking back its quite shameful to say i acutally watched it but what the hell lmao
i hope you like it and good luck everyone
OMG im sure for what Stokanslandet and Eurovizz have sent !! I DO know the songs !!!!
Oh i'm scared I know it lol If its the one I think it is .. yes I watch the programme every year, but no I don't like the song But if it isn't that song then you've lost me!
