  • 145th FSC (June 2019) - Galway, Ireland - Torthaí

    Dia Dhuit! Fáilte go hÉireann!

    We are back to Ireland for only the second time ever in this contest's history and thanks to @mondflug 's last month's runaway winning entry:

    Dermot Kennedy - Power Over Me

    We already visited Dublin in FSC 50 and this month we move to the west coast to the historic town of Galway.


    01. This is a monthly contest, modeled after Eurovision. You need to have at least 10 posts to your credit to take part.
    02. You can pick any country in the world.
    03. The artist you choose has either to be a citizen of the country they'll represent or to have been born there. At least HALF of the people from your act must be from the country you choose.
    04. Your song must be 10 years old at the most. For 2019, eligible entries must have been released after December 31st, 2008.
    05. Eurovision entries are not allowed. Songs from concurrent Eurovision heats are not allowed either.
    06. The song cannot have been a UK/US Top 40 hit, as it would give it an unfair advantage.
    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.
    10. You cannot vote for your own country.
    11. Discussion about one's favourites during the contest is NOT ALLOWED, as it has the potential to influence the voting.
    12. PLEASE try and choose a song not everyone would know, the point is to discover new artists.
    13. If a song becomes or is found to be ineligible at any time before the voting is over, it will be disqualified.
    14. Make sure you understand all the rules before you take part. You will need to devote about 2 hours of your time to this game to listen to all the entries at least once. Do a little research on your entry before you present it, be sure that it doesn't violate any rules, and check here to see if it has taken part before.


    01 - 13/6 | RESERVE & PRESENT: Present your entry or just reserve your country. Last month's top 5 get their choice from last month reserved, so nobody may choose these countries until they let them go:

    03. United States (KindOf)
    04. Malaysia (Spiral)

    14/6 | PRESENT: Pick any country that hasn't been presented yet and present your entry (ALL reservations are now expired). A maximum of 30 confirmed entries in total will be accepted.

    15 - 27/6 | VOTE! Whoever fails to vote during this period cannot participate in the following contest.

    28/6 | Late Vote: Whoever votes on this date will receive a 10 points penalty.

                          Mahmood - Uramaki

                          Actually, I didn't want to take a Eurovison artist this month - since you might be still enjoying their entries and you probably know Mahmood's "Soldi" which ended up being #2 in the final ranking - but Mahmood, as an artist, has made a huge impression on me. I bought his album immediately after the final and he's currently my 8th most played/scrobbled artist on this year.
                          And I would like to share my favourite track on his debut album with you: "Uramaki". You can find an English translation of the song here:

                                    Nicole Cherry - Pop That

                                    She's only 20 and has collabs with world famous names like Mohombi and Joey Montana. Making an attempt to reach her success from 2015, this time as a solo singer with the sensitive slow tempo track 'Pop That', she proves the big diversity in her style. Nicole Cherry, ladies and gens!
                                    Summer Top 10 - 2020.

                                        08. SWEDEN

                                        Sophia Somajo - Sapphire

                                        Sweden has long been known for huge, accessible pop that’s slightly left of center, and Sophia Somajo is keeping the reputation strong. Sophia first emerged in 2007 with a DIY album—self-written, produced, and recorded—called The Laptop Diaries, but before picking up international buzz she struggled with agoraphobia, retreated from the public eye, and changed her name to Soso.
                                        She came back in late 2015 with “Klein Blue,” and she solidifies her return with “Sapphire,” an enormous pop song with a powerful hook and a dark edge.
