    Some cultures simply recognise the FACT that Verjamem is a stone cold 11/10 standout Slovenian moment :disco:

    :(

    One of my saddest memories of Eurovision 2012 is seeing Eva crying after the second semi when she didn't qualify. She was such a sweetheart, I met her a few times at random parties in Baku and she always took the time to chat. Her backing singer, Sandra, the one who did all the aaah aaah bits, was a right LUSH and was out all the time to the wee small hours partying away! :disco:

    You can always rely on Kala for some generic female-fronted uptempto pop served with fresh delusion :D

    Well at least it would have been different from all the other Balkan ballads in Baku!

    It was easily the best Balkan ballad in Baku, and the only one worth keeping. I DON'T want to hear about Bosnia's 'flutes' either :sour:

    Verjamem was a complete dated dirge of a song. I've never understood what any of you saw in it.

    Poor Slovenia. It was a nice song, but I can see how it isn't something you'd pick up the phones for. Especially given it was one of three very very similar songs, and of them she was the least famous and had the smallest boost from neighbours.

    You've a good point there :) Southeast Asians take to ballads and young singers fairly easily. The again it's difficult not to like someone as sweet as Eva Boto

    Perhaps I'm not enough of a balkan ballad connoisseur but aren't they ALL really dated sounding!?

    Verjamem is pretty much the only one I've ever loved. I find it so frustrating that the East just voted for the big names rather than the best song. Serbia and Bosnia were absolute SHIT in comparison. I can't even remember how either of them go.

    MayaSar isn't a BIG name in the Balkans though. Slovenia were hampered by the fact it's, well, Slovenia. They don't really get the friendly votes the other Balkans do.

    I suppose they're just as dated as schlager songs, I guess.

    Verjamen is lovely but the whole styling of her and the staging was completely age inappropriate. They made a 16 year old, pretty girl look 40 or so.

    I really should start a thread about Slovenian trashy pop singers, my Slovenian friend sent me loads of tracks from acts like Rebeka Dremelj, Manca Špik, Maja Slatinšek etc and there are so many :disco: songs. Slovenia has so many basic bitches!

    Well seeing as I've signed up for this place now, I'll introduce myself to those of you who don't know me. A few of you do and all I'll say is that if this ends up becoming a huge sink on my time I'm blaming Penelope.

    In which country do you live?
    The United Kingdom

    How many years have you been watching the Eurovision Song Contest
    This will be my fourth year, so I'm a little inexperienced.

    Quickly, name three countries whose entries you generally like
    Finland
    Sweden
    Azerbaijan

    Carola or Amina - which do you wish had won?
    Carola, I am lacking in that I don't know who Amina is

    Do you know who Lotta Engberg is?
    Yes, solely due to her MF 2012 appearance

    What is your favourite winning song of the...

    ...2000s?

    Wild Dances, and if we include 2010s, Euphoria obviously.

    ...1990s?
    Nocturne

    ...1980s?
    Um... don't know

    ...1970s?
    Waterloo :disco:

    ...1960s?
    I don't know any.

    Can you sing any of the winning songs from the 1950s?
    Negative, Captain.

    If you had a Eurovision song played at your funeral, which would it be?
    I feel Ott Lepland - Kuula would carry the gravitas appropriate for the situation.

    Is CatCat's Bye Bye Baby the greatest Finnish song ever? No, I barely know any of theirs before Lordi so I do not know this one of which you speak, but since then (inclusive) they have been extremely consistent so one of their 2006-2012 songs is the best one ever. (It is not Da Da Dam :eyes:)


    Which is your favourite nil points entry ever? (You can pick Pierro and the Music Stars, Little My)
    Have I heard any of these? :D I might have heard Jemima once so it'll have to be that on default


    Rate the following out of 100...
    (0 = Worse than Hitler, if you saw them on the other side of the road, you'd run up to them and push them in traffic
    50 = Quite indifferent to them

    What is the most played Eurovision tune on your computer/mp3 player?

    Loreen - Euphoria, but I always think it's Drip Drop as that was the previous holder before I spam-played Euphoria to almost 200 last year

    I've been lurking for a bit, well, quite a while, so apologies if I seem a little too familiar from knowing too much or something.

    I'm sure we can share the stage, Dinlo. (thanks, u 2)

    What a wonderful choice of funeral music. I hope you would have a live stilt performance around the casket.

    How many years have you been watching the Eurovision Song Contest Since 2009 so 5 contests


    Quickly, name three countries whose entries you generally like Overall I'd say Luxembourg, Sweden, and France. Also, I do like all of Morocco's entries :rolleyes:


    Carola or Amina - which do you wish had won? Amina


    Do you know who Lotta Engberg is? Yes :evil:


    What is your favourite winning song of the...

    ...2000s?
    Fairytale & Wild Dances


    ...1990s? Diva with Insieme a close second probably

    ...1980s? La det swinge


    ...1970s? L'oiseau et l'enfant. I love how it's three minutes straight of singing with no instrumental breaks.


    ...1960s? Un jour un enfant although Dansevise is climbing up there.


    Can you sing any of the winning songs from the 1950s? A few lines from Refrain.


    If you had a Eurovision song played at your funeral, which would it be? Oooh either Love Kills or Ég á lif.


    Is CatCat's Bye Bye Baby the greatest Finnish song ever? :o YES!! I literally just listened to it for the first time today. :disco:


    Which is your favourite nil points entry ever? (You can pick Pierro and the Music Stars, Little My) Mil etter mil (the live version from the night)


    Rate the following out of 100...
    (0 = Worse than Hitler, if you saw them on the other side of the road, you'd run up to them and push them in traffic
    50 = Quite indifferent to them
    100 = You'd throw yourself in front of traffic if you thought they would be impressed by it)

    Carola
    10

    Cliff Richard 0

    Ofra Haza 50

    Lena Philipsson 60

    Skamp 10


    What is the most played Eurovision tune on your computer/mp3 player? I have no idea anymore.
