  • 148th FSC (Sep 2019) - Cork, Ireland (RESULTS)

    Blarney! Welcome to Ireland!

    We return to Ireland for only the second time thanks to [MENTION=1322]westhammer[/MENTION], who gets his second victory ever - both of them in just the last few months, with this winner:


    This time we are in Cork, where we might all do well to pucker up at the Blarney Stone for luck this month. It is just a few miles from here at Blarney Castle. An old city, it has a long history as a trading port and was established well over a millennium ago.

    Cork County has a number of beautiful spots to spend your days from the lush greenery of the Gougane Barra to the remoteness of Cape Clear Island, where you can have ice cream made from goat milk.








    RULES


    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 less than 10 years old. Eligible entries must have been released after January 1st, 2009.
    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 favorites 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.

                                      Dara Ekimova ft. Iskrata - Sagapao

                                      5. Bulgaria
                                      Dara Ekimova ft. Iskrata - Sagapao

                                      She is only 17 but her talent in music is obvious. Her father was the frontman of the Bulgarian rock band Slang. Well, the genre now is much more different, this is a bilingual project with the interesting producer Iskrata. Dara says to her lover on Greek dialect: 'Sagapao'.
                                      Summer top 10 - 31.07.2020.

                                                    syd hartha | ayaw



                                                    ayaw means "I don't want to" in Tagalog.

                                                    "It is undeniable that sexual harassment continues to be a prevalent issue that we face today. I feel for the victims of catcalling and rape, and understand how hard it is to talk about their experience. As a musician who some people look up to, I know I have to use my voice in behalf of all the victims and survivors. This inspired me to write 'ayaw.'" -- syd hartha

                                                    What is inside your mind?
                                                    Nagiging agresibo sa 'king paghina, lumalakas loob mo
                                                    You became aggressive in my weakness, you became bold
                                                    Ako pa rin ba ang puno't dulo nito?
                                                    Am I still the one who started it?

                                                          Echoes and ghosts in my head
                                                          They are swimming in my bed
                                                          They're not giving me a chance
                                                          I am here for no one

                                                          All the words that you said are alive
                                                          And I keep them on a page
                                                          Am I ever gonna change?
                                                          I should have gave them to someone

                                                          Where are you tonight?
                                                          Restless like a wolf in the night
                                                          Lighthouse in the dark
                                                          Where are you tonight?

                                                          And I know that they won't save me
                                                          From the voices in my mind
                                                          And I know that I can't run away and hide
                                                          From afar the bells are ringing
                                                          On the first day of my life

                                                          I'm wearing the coat that you gave me
                                                          And suddenly it's real
                                                          I don't know if I should feel
                                                          That I'm here for someone

                                                          Oh, echoes and ghosts in my head
                                                          They are racing in my bed
                                                          And I'm about to take a chance
                                                          'Cause I'm here for someone

                                                            Hello!

                                                            So November will mark the 150th FSC! Mainshow let me know about how the 100th was celebrated. If you look at the 100th FSC, there was a rule in place for that edition to celebrate the milestone whereby you could only choose a song that represents an official language of the country you've selected.

                                                            Would anyone object to instituting that rule to mark the 150th FSC? It would affect only the November contest.
