    Lindita - World is one of the competition’s best compositions. It is a masterclass in the subterfuge - here is an entry that presents as something, but is actually nothing, thus making it something very special indeed. I cannot rave enough.

    Oh I loved It's all about you, but I prefer the Albanian version.

    This year's actually the best by far I feel. I have a big soft spot for their horribly staged but quite lovely 2014 entry though, and It's All About You is acceptable in a Britney B-side circa 2003 kinda way.

    I couldn’t bring myself to vote for the snake lady. What a racket! I guess the chorus(?) is in Albanian but at the time I thought she was singing “My life is a jooooooyyy” in a distinctly unjoyful manner

    In the end Albania is usually some combination of glory vox, shouting and witch music, or ALL OF THE ABOVE

    I had to go for the (mostly) glorious 2015 and 2016, as well as that 2011 or about dabbing your lips with someone’s morning dew :horny:

    I don’t feel the passion about any of these majorly, nothing as good as Carry Me In Your Dreams, but I’d pick out I’m Alive as my favourite as it’s one I remember in a positive way and can still hum along to

    IKR! The only ones I can even remember are Kejsi and Suus! And they are for belting your lungs out, not humming!

    Humming Suus!! You’d sound like you had your mouth taped up, tied to a chair in a basement screaming for help

    Exactly! Kind of like the uh-ah-oh's and wailing of Björk's Medulla. :x:

    Mall is life. It’s All About You is a solid runner up.

    Looking at that list, none of them are total dogshit to my ears, they do what they do (whether or not anyone wants it)

    God, Albania really has gone off the boil OUTRAGEOUSLY compared with the 00s - the sheer decade-to-decade fall from grace compared with THESE STUNNERS is practically verging on CROATIAN!





    (Although FUCKING HELL, listening to Carry Me In Your Dreams really ANYBODY BUT SWEDEN would've had a tall order not DECLINING COMPARED WITH THIS :disco:)

    You fill my thoughts EVEN WHEN YOU’RE NOT ‘ERE! :disco:

    The attack on THEEEEEEEEEEERE! :disco:

    Climbing the ludicrous HUMAN STEPS into the key change! :disco:

    The ridiculous staging which is presumably meant to resemble a DREAM! :disco:
