Eurovision 2012: Serbia


SERBIA: “NIJE LJUBAV STVAR” (LOVE ISN’T A THING) -  ŽELJKO JOKSIMOVIĆ (SF2-01)
It’s a “it’s not you, it’s me” song, I explain, Željko has composed 3 eurovision songs previously with different flag, but all of them from the Balkans; “Oro” (Serbia 2008), “Lejla” (Bosnia – Herzegovina 2006) and my top favourite from him and sung by him “Lane Moje” (Serbia-Montenegro 2004). “Nije Ljubav Stvar” it’s a good song, but it doesn’t have an easy to remember title and from there it’s a kind of trouble to me. I can easily remember all the previous titles of his songs, but with this I have a kind of affair. Željko has the fame to get a really great place in the final but he has to start the 2nd Semifinal and he is followed by another FYR, the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia that for me can take a lot of votes from him, because I feel that the Macedonian song has an easily remember, it grows and it’s more powerful, the Kaliopi’s voice. The second semifinal of this year Eurovision Song Contest will be held next May 24th 2012.

Serbia won with its first entry as an independent state in 2007, in 2008 was 6th (The best place for a recent winner as host) but since then, Serbia hasn’t been in top10 in the final result.   

SERBIA: “NIJE LJUBAV STVAR” (EL AMOR NO ES UNA COSA) -  ŽELJKO JOKSIMOVIĆ (SF2-01)
Para mí es una canción "No eres tú, soy yo" me explico, Zeljko ha compuesto 3 canciones con anterioridad para Eurovision, con diferente bandera; "Oro" (Serbia 2008), "Lejla" (Bosnia-herzegovina 2006), y mi favorítísma de él "Lane Moje" (Serbia-Montenegro 2004). "Nije Ljubav Stvar" es una buena canción, pero no tiene un titulo recordativo y ya desde ahí para mí es un complique, las anteriores las recuerdo así no más, pero con esta tengo que mirar el título. Zeljko tiene la fama para quedar muy bien en la final, pero le ha tocado comenzar la 2a Semifinal y la sigue otra Ex Yugoslava, que para mi gusto, le roba el show, pues es mucho más fuerte en sonido y crecimiento de la canción. La 2a Semifinal de Eurovision 2012, se llevará a cabo el 24 de Mayo.

Serbia ha participado 6 veces en Eurovision, ganó con su primer intento en 2007 como estado independiente y quedó 6º en la final de 2008 (la mejor ubicación de un host recientemente) desde entonces, un top10 ha sido esquivo para Serbia.

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….


42. LITHUANIA
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?!


41. GEORGIA
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.


40. ISRAEL
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.

39. ALBANIA
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: 
14. NORWAY
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.


13. ESTONIA
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. 


12. SWITZERLAND
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.


11. NETHERLANDS
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.
28. SWEDEN
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.

27. IRELAND
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 ;).

26. AUSTRALIA
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.

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