  • [Game] 173rd FSC (Oct. 2021) - Minsk, Belarus (ВЫНІКІ)

    Сардэчна запрашаем у Беларусь! Спадзяюся, вам спадабаецца наш першы раз тут!

    Welcome to Belarus! I hope you enjoy our first time here!



    In what seemed a tight contest, Nanda got a bump in the final votes to run away with last month's competition. Our first visit to Belarus is courtesy of this excellence:


    We arrive in Minsk, the capital of Belarus, a city that has been around in some form for hundreds of years. It's only been a national capital for the last three decades though because Russian had annexed it two hundred years before that. The city has been booming in the last couple decades and just opened a third line on their metro last year.

    It will be a bit chilly here as we dip into a Belarussian autumn, so you might want to dip into the KFC to get some fried chicken. I normally wouldn't recommend a fast food place, but it's got an epic sculpted relief from 60s ever Soviet Russia. Actually, a lot of tourist things I'm looking up are about Minsk's Soviet era, so I think I'll bypass that and look at food. If fried chicken isn't your thing, you could try some kletski, which sounds similar to perogies as they are big flour balls filled with meat.

    05. Eurovision entries are not allowed. Songs from concurrent Eurovision heats are not allowed either.

    07. The song can be a remix.
    08. The song cannot be a cover version.
    09. If your song features a sample, please state it early enough, so the other contestants can decide whether it is acceptable or not by poll.

    11. Discussion about one's favourites during the contest is NOT ALLOWED, as it has the potential to influence the voting.

              She would stand around after she had set the table and listen to the family give, in unison, thanks to the long-haired man whose gaze always turned upward – probably because he couldn’t bear to see the havoc wreaked in his name.

                          I think I was at #5 last month (I even had more 12 points than cheapthrills entry, we both score the same) so I wanted to keep Poland for myself again.

                            I just checked and Germany and Poland have tied for 5th two months in a row! What a weird coincidence.

                            I believe we decided the tiebreaker for the top five was first by total number of votes, and next by number of 12 point votes? I hope that's correct because that's how I've been breaking ties in the top five for about two years now.

                              I didn't know that, I would reserve Poland earlier then.

                              Anyway, I skip the month

                                Yeah, sorry! I decided to check to make sure. It looks like the poll on it was done here, and after a discussion here.

                                That discussion on how to break ties was started because you had tied then too

                                    Miss Li • Starkare



                                    I'm stronger than you think
                                    Jag är starkare än du tror

                                    And when life pushes me down
                                    Och när livet trycker ner mig

                                    I will always resist
                                    Ska jag alltid stå emot

                                    Yes, yes, yes
                                    Ja, ja, ja

                                    I'm stronger than you think
                                    Jag är starkare än du tror

                                    And I'll show that I can
                                    Och jag ska visa att jag kan

                                    Be hard as a diamond
                                    Va hård som diamant
                                    And when life depresses me
                                    Och när livet trycker ned mig

                                    Then I'll pull myself up again
                                    Så ska jag dra mig upp igen

                                    I'm going to get over the surface
                                    Jag ska ta mig över ytan

                                    Because I'm not done yet
                                    För jag är inte färdig än

                                    Yes I am
                                    Ja, jag är
                                    I'm stronger than you think
                                    Jag är starkare än du tror

                                    And I can tear down all obstacles if I just dare to believe
                                    Och jag kan riva alla hinder om jag bara vågar tro

                                    I'm so much stronger than you think
                                    Jag är så mycket starkare än du tror

                                    I can crush all mountains and you can prove my words
                                    Jag kan krossa alla berg och du kan sanna mina ord
                                    I'm stronger, stronger, stronger, stronger, yeah, yeah
                                    Jag är starkare, starkare, starkare, starkare, yeah, yeah

                                    Yes, I'm stronger, stronger, stronger, stronger, yeah, yeah
                                    Ja, jag är starkare, starkare, starkare, starkare, yeah, yeah
                                    I'm going to open every door
                                    Jag ska öppna varje dörr

                                    Not going to apologize
                                    Tänker inte be om ursäkt

                                    If I step in and disturb
                                    Om jag kliver in och stör

                                    No no no
                                    Nej, nej, nej

                                    I have a life and it's short
                                    Jag har ett liv och det är kort

                                    So it should not be neglected
                                    Så det ska inte slarvas bort

                                    On being someone I am not
                                    På att vara nån jag inte är
                                    And when others begin to doubt
                                    Och när andra börjar tvivla

                                    So I'll believe what I do
                                    Så ska jag tro på det jag gör

                                    Me and all my days
                                    Jag och alla mina dagar

                                    I will live them until I die
                                    Dem ska jag leva tills jag dör

                                    Yes I am
                                    Ja, jag är
                                    I'm stronger than you think
                                    Jag är starkare än du tror

                                    And I can tear down all obstacles if I just dare to believe
                                    Och jag kan riva alla hinder om jag bara vågar tro

                                    I'm so much stronger than you think
                                    Jag är så mycket starkare än du tror

                                    I can crush all mountains and you can prove my words
                                    Jag kan krossa alla berg och du kan sanna mina ord

                                    Ja, jag är starkare, starkare, starkare, starkare, yeah, yeah
                                    You who love life
                                    Du som haver livet kär

                                    Yes, I am (stronger, stronger, stronger, stronger, yeah, yeah)
                                    Ja, jag är (starkare, starkare, starkare, starkare, yeah, yeah)

                                    Stronger than you think
                                    Starkare än du tror
                                    I'm stronger than you think
                                    Jag är starkare än du tror

                                    And I can tear down all obstacles if I just dare to believe
                                    Och jag kan riva alla hinder om jag bara vågar tro

                                    I'm so much stronger than you think
                                    Jag är så mycket starkare än du tror

                                    I can crush all mountains and you can prove my words
                                    Jag kan krossa alla berg och du kan sanna mina ord

                                    I'm stronger, stronger, stronger, stronger, yeah, yeah
                                    Jag är starkare, starkare, starkare, starkare, yeah, yeah

                                    I'm stronger, stronger, stronger, stronger, yeah, yeah
                                    Jag är starkare, starkare, starkare, starkare, yeah, yeah

                                    Stronger than you think
                                    Starkare än du tror

                                        Blanco - "Notti In Bianco"


                                        I wanted to present this song a long time ago before it became a hit but Italy was always reserved by the time I got to it. I guess better later than never.
