Happy 2017! Welcome to the 116th UKMIX Forum Song Contest!



Last month, CandyPerfumeBoy notched up yet another win for Denmark with this song:

Dúné - Searching for a Party

Which means we're back in Scandinavia for January. Let's take a look at our host city, Esbjerg!

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 10 years old at the most. For 2017, eligible entries must have been released after December 31st, 2006.
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.

May I just take this opportunity to thank every one of you for sharing your choices for good music from around the world - this game has been feeding me (and I suppose all of us) with songs I'd not have heard otherwise. My year-end chart is pretty much proof of this, as you can see in this video I made. Thank you all!

Oh, and I think I'm keeping Australia.
Edit: Give me a few minutes and I'll get back to you Affillate!

Is it okay to choose an acoustic version of the song instead of the original one? It's still sang by the original artist though.

Yeah, why not. As long as it's sung by the original artist, you can choose even the whistled version :lol:
