Hoped for more but quite delighted with me finishing 8th! (I'm usually 8th from the bottom up)883
have far better songs than the one presented. But the straight-forwardness of the lyrical content revolving around coming-of-age and all problems related is lost if you don't understand the language.
My favourites are Gli Anni
, Hanno Ucciso L'Uomo Ragno
(cameo by Jovanotti!
) / Han Matado Al Hombre Araña
(deploring media and organised crime], Nord Sud Ovest Est
, Tieni Il Tempo
, Come Mai
, Il Grande Incubo
, Chiuditi Nel Cesso
(smart approach to Xenophobia)
Thanks to all the votes for Italy and special <3 <3 to Fredo & grooveboy (for your incredible support!
Congrats to CandyPerfumeBoy for the winning song! Placed it #1 so no real complaint this month. I personally would have chosen Künstliche Welten
Liechtenstein: This was ranked higher in the beginning but fell down a little as I don't necessarily like this particular Alemannic dialect and for the most part it was totally difficult to understand what she was singing about [massive over-production/wall-of-sound]. Other than that those drums and the hard riffs and head banging were terrific! Great find (I think I got a little stiffie when the electric guitars went in hard
Israel was fantastic (in like: hello, what was that?
). Never heard of this before, so very nice discovery. @jio
Would you please give me directions to the Greek version, please?
UK & US: The UK entry got me hypnotised; for not being my style it surely captured my attention. Well done. The US of A got special points for the brave entry. Not a song or style that usually sets UKMiX on fire. Fantastic song!
France: (I realised that I have her CD) Besides the FSC entry and "Larsen", I really like this: Zen
Special mention to Lithuania which I found very interesting and intriguing. Good find! (Love off-side entries)
Thanks to all the participants for all the music presented! Always a thrill.
