Work this out between you, just make sure you edit your initial post and keep #02 for your entry, because number 2 is missing at the moment!

This contest has been kinda messy so far :P

I'm a bit short on cash at the moment. Am I allowed to sell the UK to the highest bidder and take some hopeless country instead? (Couldn't find anything in the rules about this.)

If JakeP is not keeping Iceland I'd very much like to represent it this month :)

After remembering this month was supposed to be retro, I will not do a foreign country anymore. I will keep Brazil because there is a song I REALLY wanted to use last month, but the cutoff date didin't allow me to.

10. BRAZIL: Adriana Calcanhotto - Maresia

Lyrics:
My love is gone
Took my identity with it
Now, I'm not so sure where I am
Nor where reality is

Ah if only I were a sailor
I would've been one who'd walk away
My heart, then,
Would not have broken in pieces

But If it did, I could mend it
With [a glue from] the smell of the seas
I would love and unlove
Without any regret,
But in a poetic manner

Ah if only I were a sailor
I would have a sweet sweet home
That would not would not be only Rio de Janeiro
But the immensity and the sea

The West, the East, the North and the South
The very place where a man stands
When the sun raises in the blue of the sky
Or when there is moonlight on the sea

I would not look for comfort
Nor would I save money
I would have one love for every port
Ah if only I were a sailor
I would not care for money
Ah if only I were a sailor

2 songs I already know so far and one of them will probably get my 12 points. One of them I know since a toddler, albeit in an obscure cover version, the other one was one of my favourite discoveries in a contest similar to this one.
