(Broken Bells: James Mercer & Danger Mouse)
Thank you, guys!
Really don't know what to say...
The victory was so obvious that it killed all suspense while the voting was unveiled; I missed that special spark this month.
Anyhow, happy that the Broken Bells found such acclaim. The song entered has been a favourite of mine for years now and it regularly pops up in my weekly chart.
The songs that I was really rooting for: Canada & Finland did moderately well, and I am really sorry that South Africa ended up that low. I really liked it.
Sweden was my number 11, the UK was at 12 (got handicapped by West End Girls
) and Australia was at #13 (probably the best production but didn't fully resonate with me). The rest didn't make the cut; with Belgium coming in last.
I will start the new contest and thread in about 9 to 10 hours.
See y'all in Nashville TN for the 132nd FSC (May 2018); and good luck to all the participants.
I am going to drop the USA. (It would be nice if it went to someone who hadn't a chance at it in at least the 12 past months!)
