National final Season is about to get even better...

Happy new year to everyone, I hope you all not having the problems I have, I got a lot of new pounds because of the food I ate at the end of the year, I think I'll need to run not less than 10 miles at day to get fit! xD Anyway, I had fun with my family and some friends, and I hope you did too.

Let's talk about my drug 'music' represented these days in the National finals for the forthcoming Eurovision Song Contest that are getting even better, because the Scandinavian countries like former winner Norway is getting ready, so does Sweden, and Iceland ! (My favourites so far) Currently Azerbaijan, Ukraine and Belgium have chosen some semi finalists and Spain, Malta and Turkey have made important announcements, among others. 

We already have three acts selected, I'm gonna make a little review of the song and artist:

1. Switzerland - Anna Rossinelli - In love for a while 
Selected in the Swiss National Final with a name that I won't write because it's to hard for me (Just kidding, here is Die grosse Entscheidungs Show), last December 11th, It's a lovely song which talks about that feeling we have when we fall in love and we can't almost live without that person. I'd like to see this girl making to the final, but it's hard to say, because we still have more songs to hear till May!.

2. Albania - Aurela Gaçe - Kënga Ime 
It wasn't able to embeded here so  Watch the Video here

the 49th Festivali i Kängës took place in December 25th, Roman Catholic Christian Church Christmas' day, and the Albanian public broadcaster held as a tradition, its national final and winner was Aurela Gace with this song which means "my song". Firstly, I didn't get it, secondly, I didn't get it either, but then, at the third time of listening to, I liked the Rhythm, but I still have my doubts about it, because I don't know a thing about the language, but I hope to know soon with someone's trasnlation! ;) 

3. Romania - Hotel FM - Change
TVR hosted its national final (Selectia Nationala) the New year's Eve, maybe to kill two birds with one shoot, saying goodbye to 2010 with the Selection and receiving the new year with the Act and the song for Eurovision Song Contest Düsseldorf 2011. About the song, I have to say, that the three chosen till today, it's my very best fovourite so far, it has a reminiscence of the Swedish sounds and message on it is really nice, so it stole my 'hear' at the first listening, even before the final (when the songs were available) this one was became the first on my winning list !

I'm almost sure that one or two of this list is going to be in the Final stage in Düsseldorf ! A foresight? Perhaps !! :P

A shocking news from 43 countries to compete in Düsseldorf, one left us, Slovakia, why you? I wanted something like last year with Kristina! I hope you will come back next year and don't make a move like Italy, stopping by 13 years ! About Italy, I'm so happy to have them back even like a "Big5". Finally RAI made the move we all expected long time ago !!!

I really hope all our good wishes will come true in this brand new year to live ! I hope to see you here more often and commenting ! ;)

Carpe Diem !

Eurovision 2017: My General Top42 before all the Lights Get On (1s Part)

It's Eurovision Time and there are tops on line from the whole world, well, sometimes I made mine, and this year, I've been working on that too. 
Here are the first delivery of what is my point of view according to the first listening and the song itself, let’s start this….

The singer has a great attitude and she can deliver a good version live of the song but the main problem is the buildup of the song itself, what is that?!

I think she has one of the best voices of this year, the message of the song is good but I cannot stand the old-fashioned of this song, maybe if it had had some modern instrumentation it would work much better at first listening.

Most of the fans are going to hate me, but I cannot find a gap in this song, I know it’s an up-tempo and he has a nice voice but it wasn’t enough to captivate me at first. Maybe in rehearsals or in his semifinal will make me change my mind, but it’s still not my cup of tea.

It’s too dram…

Eurovision 2017: My General top42 Before All the Lights Get On (3d Part)

I'm going to divide the last 14 places into two parts. Here are the places 14 to 8: 
Aleksandr Walmann has great vocals and JOWST one of the best mixes of the year. It will depend on what they have to performance it. I love the song and it was one of my favs from MGP this year.I’d like to see Aleksandr by himself in future too.

Verona is a nice retro-eighties-song. Despite I cannot really find chemistry between the singers the song itself it’s really good.The risk will be in his vocals, Laura sings pretty well, but Koit could be penalized with his, I’m afraid. 

Flawless voice and great live performance, I hope they can make a great show live using a good backdrop and nice graphics that helps to sell their song. Switzerland could be placing really well this year, a top10 for sure if they have all the ingredients ready.

For 5th year in a row, The Netherlands sends a song I like since I hear at first time. I love the harmonies of the t…

Eurovision 2017: My General Top42 before All the Lights Get On (2nd Part)

I wanted to post my top42 before the rehearsals, I could not make it but I will post it before the Shows are broadcasted.
I’m a Swedish lover, but I cannot build a bridge with Bengtsson’s song, I know he has a great live show but I cannot stand the song itself. For me is not a winner, nor a top10 for Sweden. Sorry Sweden for second year in a row I won’t be crossing my fingers for you, but I aware you’ll be in the final.

It’s a nice 90’s-early-00’s ballad song, but I did not feel in love with it at first listening, 7th time winner of Eurovision is still lost for my taste despite I love its entries back in 2010, 2014 and 2015 ;).

After the amazing Dami Im I was a bit disappointed about this song once I heard it at first time, I kinda like it but without being my ultimate favorite, I like it but I will not regret if they did not get through the final.

I like it since the first listening but being realistic, it has not a strong gap that makes you …
