    Good morning everyone! Welcome to the 123rd UKMIX Forum Song Contest!



    It's August and this means we're going nostalgic and retro, choosing old songs to compete against each other! But where are we?
    Last month, Mainshow won for New Zealand (third win for this country, but fifth for Mainshow I think?) and it was all because of this song:

    Avalanche City - Inside Out



    Now let's get to know a little about our host city, Christchurch!















    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 over 10 years old. For Retro FSC 2017, eligible entries must have been released before January 1st, 2007.
    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.






    TIMELINE


    01 - 11/08 | RESERVE & PRESENT: Present your entry or just reserve your country. Last month's top 5 get their choice from last month reserved, so nobody may choose these countries until they let them go

    1. LIECHTENSTEIN

    Elis - Der Letzte Tag
    Genre: Gothic Metal
    Release Date: 2004
    For the fans of: Within Temptation, Nightwish, Type O Negative
    Description: "Dark Clouds in a Perfect Sky" became ELIS' sophmore release perfectly documenting the band's musical development and growth, and emerging as an energy-laden, sophistacated work. The videoclip for the album's opener "Der letzte Tag", featuring the late Sabine Dünser (singer), speaks for itself.

    Oops, that would help, wouldn't it?
    I copied from my post last month and didn't change the link. It has been updated.

    I think I'm going to need a little help choosing my entry. I've been listening to tons of songs since yesterday and I really can't decide on one. One thing I'd like for sure is that the song be relatively unknown. SO!

    I'm going to post a list of French acts (well I think they're all French!).
    Make a post stating which of these acts you know. If more than 2 people know a certain act, I will eliminate them from my list and then decide among the least known ones.

    Niagara
    Les Rita Mitsouko
    Native
    Laurent Voulzy
    Les Innocents
    Yta Farrow
    Christophe
    Michel Polnareff
    Louise Attaque
    Cornu
    Etienne Daho
    Noir Désir
    Zazie
    Jakie Quartz
    Lio
    Elli Medeiros
    David Hallyday
    Doriand
    Teri Moïse
    Francis Cabrel
    Pascal Obispo
    François Feldman
    Marc Lavoine
    Alain Chamfort
    Marie Laforêt
    Jeane Manson
    Mireille Mathieu
    Florent Pagny
    Cerrone
    Corynne Charby
    Hélène Ségara
    Michel Berger
    France Gall
    Alain Souchon
    Jordy
    Indra
    Jean-Jacques Goldman
    Liane Foly

    Merci!
