    Possibly I'm the biggest and most dedicated fan of Lithuanian pop scene in the world, especially from the previous decade.

    As I said many times before on different forums Lithuania is the music paradise for girl groups' fans.

    It is hard to imagine, but the country with only 3 million population have 4 top and many other (short-lived, a little less popular e.t.c.) girl groups.

    It doesn't mean that I like everything from Lithuanian pop, some their well-known singers (GJan) sounds like almost everything from the current charts, so I don't like them.

    I don't want to spam Artists Thread with Lithuanian groups and singers, but will like to introduce my favourites here.

    I live there 3-6 months per year, but I'm not that familiar with their music. Everything I heard was okayish, including Gjan, so I'm looking forward to check out your choices

    "Eternity of Dreams" was the main Lithuanian album release of 2018 year.
    It's a debut album from charming singer Marija Akelan.

    My favourite song : Meile



    Titled track : Eternity of Dreams



    This album is available in two different versions : International (with songs on English and Lithuanian languages) and for Russia (with the same songs only on my native language).

    You can listen all songs for free on her website : https://marijaakelan.bandcamp.com/ and buy CD for 10 euros.

    Giedre Barauskaite is a Lithuanian singer-songwriter comedian based in France.

    Based on the lyrics of her main hits (Google Translator will help you), it's like Lithuanian Kat McSnatch with songs on French language.

    Toutes Des Putes



    L'Amour A L'Envers



    Also you can check "Pisser Debout", "Ode A La Contraception", "Et Toc" and many others.

    Girl group Mango is the veterans of Lithuanian pop. This group was created in 1998 and during its ten-year career Mango released 9 (!!!) studio albums. The band announced its retirement in 2007 with a release 3 CDs compilation of its best songs and a good-bye tour across Lithuania. In 2014 year girls did a comeback with different line-up under name "Man-Go".

    A group of girls recorded around 100 songs in 12 albums. All of them reached the "golden" disc, six albums became "platinum" and two of them "double platinum". The total number of copies of Mango albums sold is as high as 310,000.





    On the current moment of time the ladies celebrate 20th anniversary of group and have a tour across Lithuania.

    Sirdeles ("Hearts" on English) was short-lived Lithuanian girl group with two hits. Both were # 1s in my chart.

    "Moterys Meluoja Geriau" is a main theme of popular Lithuanian TV series with the same title.



    "Kodel ?"

    Oh, Kaunas. It's hometown of YVA ladies.
    It's always good to meet Lithuanian resident on any music forum.
    Do you have any female rock bands or the groups with leading female vocals like Blondie in Lithuania ?

    Sure. The most popular is Džordana Butkutė. She's ~ 50, but still easily manages to gather 10-15k crowd to her concerts.

    As a big fan of Lithuanian pop scene I also love some their music TV shows, especially "Muzikine Kauke"(Lithuanian version of "Your Face Sounds Familiar").

    In 2017 year all fans of Lithuanian music TV shows got amazing "Muzikinis Issukis" and Monika Sedziuviene was my favourite female participant.

    Her top 3 performances :

    # 3. Buk Shalia (from the final show)



    # 2. Pokshtas



    # 1. Super Mergaites (cover version of 69 Danguje song)



    Don't miss the end of video.

    From my favourite TV show "Muzikine Kauke" (Lithuanian version of "Your Face Sounds Familiar") :

    Ruta Zibaityte and her three perfect performances in a role of Mia, Natalija Bunke and legendary Inga Valinskiene.

    Not sure if anybody will have the interest in my "Top 100 girl groups songs" list on this forum, because it's very far from mainstream, only Girls Aloud are represented, the rest belongs to low-known / forgotten / short-lived /local groups with big domination of Lithuanian acts.

    Top 10 contender for my future list.

    MIS - Princas



    Original version was recorded in 2011, some weeks ago the ladies (the name of group was changed, they are Vyshnios (Cherries) now) did a new version, which have more modern sound, that's why I prefer old good original.

    One of my favourite Lithuanian female artists is Alina Orlova. She has Russian roots, angelic voice, performs songs in Lithuanian, Russian and English. She's often compared with Katie Stelmanis, Canadian musician of Latvian descent, better known as lead vocalist of Canadian band Austra.

    Orlova ir rather indie/folk than pop.

    Studentes parodied their own cover of "Boom-Bang-a-Bang" rather than the song itself, because their version gets a little poppy/Eurobeat from the second verse onwards (complete with keychange) If you want their actual cover, listen below :



    They turned this song into a song about school crushing, particularly a small story two people in the same class (him and her), and they portray him as the shy one to tell his love to her, the song's protagonist, and not herself. The song title might be translated as "School Waltz" but there's nothing waltzy in the song, maybe except for the tempo in the first verse-chorus.

    "Leisk Tave Paguosti" was my # 1 in Lithuanian Eurovision pre-selection of 2019, so let's remember another my personal Eurovision-related favourite.

    Mia - Sacrifice (2017)
