    Last month, no US, and this month, no UK! I wonder if the UK has ever missed an FSC before?
    i am surprised as well, especially for UK

      Voted... I don't think my 10-pointer worths it in terms of quality but it brings up so many memories of a (much) happier time it literally made me shiver... Otherwise a great month

              Have to admit I struggled a little this month, but I'd say there were six songs I really enjoyed and then the rest of the songs in my list could almost have gone in any order.

                    voted! I think it will be a battle between three songs
                    Thought that was a good solution hanging with the raisin girls

                              I have ranked all songs. It's kinda unfair that one of my fav songs of 90s is here as it would defo win most FSC for me. Hope it will win this as well.

                              Pretty like my top 5 this week, the bottom half is rather in random order.

                                  Which artist is now ultimately competing for Argentina: Bandana or Enanitos Verdes?
                                  Oh f*** Enanitos Verdes was my original (and probably next Retro) pick but I changed it last minute. When they asked me for another link I was probably thinking in something else so I intuitively posted "Lamento Boliviano". Sorry for the confusion and I hope everybody ranked Bandana instead.

                                  It's late and I have to be up in 4 hours but I'm ranking the songs so I don't get a penalty u.u

                                    Just voted. I REALLY enjoyed my Top 10. My #1 song wasn't meant to be my #1 but it kept growing on me, while my original #1 bored me and ended up with 6 points.

                                    My "controversial" thought of the month: one of the songs is actually a BIG classic, and I don't think that's only the case in my Southern Latin American country. Its participation is unfair, I don't care if it wasn't a US/UK Top 40, there are 200 other countries in the world.

                                      ^actually there were at least 3 well known tracks here, one even top 4 song in Germany. Other two charted high there as well. I don't think any of British know this high charting song at all though.

                                          OK, but I would call "local" to a song charting in a few bordering countries or similar culture/same language. A song that is a classic (even familiar to a 90s-born person) in a country that is usually reluctant to songs in another languages (like Argentina) is a pretty good parameter of a global hit, which is where I would draw a line.

                                                          I think the winner is very well deserved! It has that 00s UK rock band influence (Kasabian, Arctic Monkeys and so) that I particularly like a lot.

                                                          Seeing Sweden at #2 makes me wonder if I made a mistake about not voting it. Tbh, my last points could have went anywhere. But I wanted to give some love to Italy/Greece (and France/Malaysia which I ultimately couldn't vote) for its originality and cultural importance.

                                                          I really liked Australia and Germany entries (although the last one must be the 47281th song copying/sampling "Smalltown Boy"), but Spain took my breath away. The more I listen to it, the more I like it.

                                                          I won't keep talking about the classic WW known song because the move didn't work to get a win, so I'm fine. I could have gave it some points (I don't think more than 5) but I prioritized unknown talents.

                                                          Was too close of giving France some points, thanks for including some new wave in this Retro month!

                                                          Did you compete with Poland? I have to admit every time there is a non-YouTube song I'm kind of bummed because I think I finished with Constantino's playlist but there's still a song to rank. But that never harms my opinion on that song. I'm sorry but I think Poland was one of my least favorite entries this month. I was confused because it seemed like a pop song with some Tarja influence thrown in there, and then there's the public reaction which I think it's really cool because they are enjoying it but I don't think it goes well with the song, or with my state of mind when I hear it lol I guess it's a cultural thing, I wonder what you'd think about some Argentinian cumbia or cuarteto music

                                                          About my entry: I'm not surprised of the bad outcome. I think my original pick could have performed better, but guess I'll have to wait until August 2020 to really know.

                                                            ^Polish entry is one the most famous song for children, that cause the crowd reaction, almost everyone in Poland knows it from one aged 80 to those in kinder gardens. So basically, if you're not Polish you probably won't like it but I counted for some points based on crowd reaction which was priceless to feel on your own skin there in Polish Rock Festival.

                                                            I think I have some more better Polish songs to present in the future.
