Yes, Tiger is taking over the contest!

Some info about my song:

Country: BOSNIA HERZEGOVINA
Song: "POLJUBI ME" (Kiss Me) by DEEN & VLATKA POTOS

Lyrics (Bosnian):
Želja mi jedina da svojim usnama
Te tvoje usne dotaknem
Ja ne bih žalila istoga trena da
Više se i ne pomaknem

Poljubi me, poljubi me
Neka bol mi prestane
Poljubi me, poljubi me
Neka srce zastane

Želja mi je jedina da svojim usnama
Te tvoje usne osjetim
Ja ne bih žalila istoga trena da
U plavo nebo poletim

Poljubi me, poljubi me
Neka bol mi prestane
Poljubi me, poljubi me
Neka srce zastane

Poljubi me, poljubi me
Neka zora ne svane
Poljubi me, poljubi me
Neka bol mi prestane

Lyrics (English translation):
My only wish is to, with my lips
Touch those lips of yours
I wouldn't mind if at that moment
I never move again

Kiss me, kiss me
May the pain go away
Kiss me, kiss me
May the heart pause

My only wish is to, with my lips
Feel those lips of yours
I wouldn't mind if at that moment
I fly into the blue sky

Kiss me, kiss me
May the pain go away
Kiss me, kiss me
May the heart pause

Kiss me, kiss me
May the dawn not come
Kiss me, kiss me
May the pain go away

Info about Deen:
Deen was born in Sarajevo on 12th of April 1982. He's a student of the College of Economy at the Sarajevo University. His favorite artists are Celine Dion and George Michael. From 1997 to 2001 he was a member of the popular boyband Seven Up that *almost* went to Eurovision in 1999 with the catchy "Daj spusti se." Today he is a twenty-year-old who has firmly decided that his occupation in life is ging to be music. His first solo album has garnered good criticism and has become quite popular, though he is quite one people love to hate becuase of his rather strange personal image and flamboyance, which is a taboo in Bosnia, and only to be laughed at. But he's a firm young man who knows what he wants and he tries very hard to get it. Inspite of all the negativity he has become very popular. The album is a mix of dance, pop and R&B and this duet is for me personally the best thing on it. It has been announced: Deen will represent Bosnia Herzegovina in Eurovision 2004!

Vlatka Pokos was born in Salzburg and is an Aries, which many link to her openness and resiliance. She starter her singing career in the group "Srebrna krila", but that didn't last long and she has been solo for a long time. She is also a very successful tv host on Croatia's national television HRT and has even hosted the Croatian Eurovision preselection Dora in 1999. She has performed at Splitski Festival 1997, Hrvatski radijski Festival 1998 and ZadarFest 2002. Her hosting careers seems to be the one that really has taken off, since she has not really had any new music out in a few years.

Country: ISRAEL
Song: "ATUF BERAHAMIM" (Wrapped In Mercy) by RITA

Image

Lyrics - English

A dark blue light
It wraps you up in mercy
Floating, you imagine
That you soar in other worlds
You might know everything
And see all the secrets
You're probably very calm
It wraps you in mercy

Resting in your mother
She'll always give you everything
When your day will come
You'll always have where to fall
In the end you'll venture into the world
And instantly you'll feel the pain
Strong light in your face
And you begin to hunger

CHORUS
Do not hurry
Don't hurry to venture into the moment of truth
Oh do not break
In the end you'll come to me
When I take you in my arms
I will always love
And it will be such pain
Cause even if the lord watches
Outside it burns

You run out again
You long ran out of patience
In me you sprout and discover your identity
In the end you'll venture into the world
And instantly you'll feel the pain
Strong light in your face
I'll wrap you in mercy

CHORUS
Do not hurry
Don't hurry to venture into the moment of truth
Oh do not break
In the end you'll come to me
When I take you in my arms
I will always love
And it will be such pain
Cause even if the lord watches
Outside it burns

CHORUS
Do not hurry
Don't hurry to venture into the moment of truth
Oh do not break
In the end you'll come to me
When I take you in my arms
I will always love
And it will be such pain
Cause even if the lord watches
Outside it burns
These foolish games are tearing me apart

I would be doing

Ireland
Bridin Brennan "Face to Face"
I heard a sample of it it's cool

Info
from mdm.ie

From one of the most remote and picturesque parts of Ireland-Gweedore, Donegal, Bridin is the youngest of the famous Brennan family (her well-known siblings include Enya and Clannad)

Growing up in a musical environment where she watched the success of her brothers and sisters, Bridin learnt much about music from her parents who are both musicians and run the much celebrated pub, Leo's Tavern. It was here she witnessed many memorable performances-including impromptu sessions with Bono and Paul Brady. But more so it was in Leo's that Bridin made her first appearance at the tender age of 5!!

After leaving school Bridin rejected music as her Obvious choice of career and trained as a hairdresser (although it had been presumed by her teachers that she would persue a career in music)

However, Bridin eventually did sing professionally for a time and completed numerous world tours with Clannad. During these tours she appeared on many of the worlds top TV shows including "Tonight with Jay Leno" Throughout this time she also contributed vocals to Maire Brennans debut solo album and recording sessions with Runrig and Donal Lunny.

Bridin then returned again to the hairdressing profession-this time as receptionist for celebrity hairdresser Charles Worthington in London.But after a couple of years living in London she was approached by a friend to add some vocals to his album. Being a different style of music this rekindled her desire to sing and she began to write her own music.

On a trip to Dublin Bridin met with producers Chris O'Brien and Graham Murphy. Soon afterwards she began writing and recording with them. The fruits of these sessions include her debut single "HANG ON".Bridin is currently recording the remainder of her album, which will be released later this year.

there are samples at the website

Hang On (sadly it is already an OSC3 entry)
Deep Deep Sleep (b - side of above)
Face to Face (the one I have chosen)

So do I! But I'm trying to send out the most Westernized Balkans music, and although "Kazi Mi", "Od Nas Zavisi", etc are wonderful to my ears I don't think they will appeal so much to the others here...

Yes, you're probably right. Although "Ajde da letame" (the one she did with Novogradska) might do ;)

I'll go back to Macedonia for FSC4, and I might just send that song... or maybe something from Tose Proeski or Vrcak

Oh, and by the way, can you all upload your entries to the UKMix Yahoo! Group as .wmas if possible? They take so much less time to download!

Here's Blu's lyrics:

Ow ow ow ow, ow ow ow ow

Big up to all da Brooklyn Massive Crew
Some they pay no mind but now them notice Blu
So take your ones, your fifties
Put your hundreds to your shoes
And to my fans, you know I love you
To da top we be chargin'
I'm not leavin' til someone starts rockin'
All the soldiers come back and start marchin'
And me see myself selling in black market

You say you love, say you love me
But you’re never there for me, yeah, mmm...hmm...
You’ll be cryin’, slowly dyin’
When I decide to leave, oh, oh

All we do is make up
Then break up
Why don’t we wake up
And see

When love hurts
It won’t work
Maybe we need some time alone
We need to let it breathe
Breathe
Breathe
Breathe

You’re only lonely when your homey
Ain’t got a ride or no loot, yeah, uh-huh
Then comes the drama
Some other girl is claimin’ she’s goin’ out with you,

hmm...hmm...

All we do is make up
Then break up
Why don’t we wake up
And see

When love hurts
It won’t work
Maybe we need some time alone
We need to let it breathe

Breathe
Breathe
Breathe
Breathe (Uh...huh...)
Breathe

Summer, spring, winter and fall
I realize love don’t love me anymore
I’m still walkin’ out that door
Waitin’ for a cure

I wish that you could love me more
And give me what I’m lookin’ for
You used to be the one I adore
But now it seems I’m just not sure

Maybe we need some time alone
So we can just breathe

Breathe (Let it breathe)
Breathe (Breathe, ah...)
Breathe (Let it breathe)
Breathe
Breathe (Breathe)
Breathe
Breathe (Uh-huh)

Hey...hey...hey...hey...
Let it breathe, yeah
Oh...oh...breathe
