    Sauter le bouchon et verser le champagne!
    Pop the cork and pour the champagne!
    It's time to celebrate our 150th FSC!!!


    As our 150th contest, this month we have a special rule (#14) - the song you choose must be in an official language of the country you choose.

    Appropriately, our celebration takes place in our well, most celebrated country, France, thanks to this delightful entry from @maroon, in only his second time out:


    This is our 15th time in France, which means that France has won in one out of every ten contests! We go to Reims, known for its high quality champagne, which should be flowing heavily this month. Make sure you hydrate!

    While here there is some lovely old architecture like the ancient Roman arch from the 3rd century - the Pont du Mars, And since Paris' Notre Dame Cathedral is indisposed at the moment, you can visit the one in Reims.








    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 less than 10 years old. Eligible entries must have been released after January 1st, 2009.
    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 favorites 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. The lyrics of the song must be in the official language of the country represented. THIS WILL BE DETERMINED BY THE WIKIPEDIA ARTICLE ON THE COUNTRY.
    15. 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.

    It's just because it's the 150th FSC. It was done for the 100th as well.

    Spain is taken unless/until mondflug confirms the country or releases it for taking.

    05. POLAND

    Daria Zawiałow - Szarówka


    source: https://cdn.shortpixel.ai/client/q_g...ow-670x390.jpg



    I've wanted to submit this song for Poland for a while now since it's one of my favourite Polish songs from 2019 but "unfortunately" I hadn't have the chance to reserve Poland before. The song is accompanied by a heartfelt music video. I've found an English translation of the song. Hope you'll like it ;)

    End of the Grey

    I'm returning from a long journey
    From my favourite couple of years
    Smoke has been covering my sight
    For many days
    How long can we wait for it
    Time won't heal the wounds
    It's been so long
    So long on the road


    And I am leaving you out here at the end of the grey
    I give up, although the destination is so close


    In my dreams, where the road bends
    People cry out rains
    Don't know how, it's impossible
    For rain to drop down from their faces
    Grey days, grey whispers
    Slipping through my fingers
    All I have, in my grey city
    Turns into echo-oh-oh


    Nothing is as good as it used to
    Eyes from the windows looking evil
    Kids from crying homes
    Take out their anger in puddles
    Eyes sore from air
    I'm hiding under my eyelids
    Mothers are wilting
    Their lives are kinda less


    You're leaving me out here at the end of the grey
    You're giving up, although you tried so hard


    In my dreams, where the road bends
    People cry out rains
    Don't know how, it's impossible
    For rain to drop down from their faces
    Grey days, grey whispers
    Slipping through my fingers
    All I have, in my grey city
    Turns into echo-oh-oh


    And the wind blows
    Slowly, carrying the fear
    When I am knocking on a door
    Nobody's there to answer anymore


    So I am carried by the wind, I am carried by the fog
    Stalling impassively
    The wind blows, It carries me away
    I am being carried, by the years


    It looks like the end, end of the world
    The kids are crying and so am I
    The time carrying us, the time carries us
