Thanks for posting music from Haindling, Kathrina. I like Haindling. :)



Hubert von Goisern with his yodel music. What about that? :)

So Moldova ended up being ranked as #2 by the public vote. Pretty much the exact opposite of the jury vote. Marina Abramovic, on the other hand, ended up 4th.

Portugal, Estonia and Iceland had pretty good songs though -- one of the best.

I forgot all about it, so didn’t get to watch it.. so par for the Eurovision-Contest-course yet again, for me.

I like this one. In general, the kind of rap that I like tends to be European in origin.

I'd recommend listening to the Portugal entry that I posted above.

If you want something that is uplifting instead, and stereotypically European (specifically Dutch), I suggest checking out the Czech entry. The best entry, as far as I'm concerned.

The thing that I like about Montenegrin music is also the thing that I dislike about it. I like that it's fiece, and quite masculine in general, but at the same time, I dislike how monotone it is. If they could somehow take those masculine elements and combine them with Serbian music, that would be great.

Sort of like what they did here but minus all the teen pop thing.



Keep the violin parts, keep that battle part that starts around 1:54, remove everything else and replace it with proper heroic music and lyrics.

..you think that the best entry? Ok..

I prefer my mood to dictate my music choices, not my music choices to dictate my mood.. no uplifting feels, right now.

I’m currently.. contemplative.

So Ukraine [ https://youtu.be/F1fl60ypdLs ]won, huh! -I don’t mind it, it’s gotta vibe.. though I wouldn’t have minded it with a slight mellow edge, but I guess Ukraine didn’t need that at a time like this.

I doubt there's a single person who disagrees with that. It's just that I generally prefer positive music.

That song didn't even win their national contest (although, I have to say, it's better than the winning entry.) The singing and flute are great, the rapping and dancing are horrible, the black guy does not fit at all (the only reason he's there is obviously to gain diversity points) and I don't know what to think about the lyrics (they certainly don't mix with "I'm a badass dude" aesthetics.)

I recently came across this song by Ceca Slavkovic and immediately thought that it must be a cover of that Greek song that perpetualburn posted early in this thread. It turned out that it is.

Anyways . . .

An electronic cover of traditional Serbian folk song:



Late 90s / early 00's eurodance Serbian/Italian song featuring some elements from Serbian folk music:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IZuxbByLUN0

Bosnian / Croatian pop from early 2000's (inspired by this Senegalese song):
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Td9tYLNjSRc

The song that Croatia should have sent to Eurovision back in 2000 (that later became internationally known via Maksim Mrvica):
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qg5wRTwyX9w

Croatia can't compare to Serbia when it comes to music (and many other things) but Croatian Rhapsody is pretty good (especially Maksim's version.) Their feeling of inferiority prompts them to strive towards European values, and in all of their efforts, I think Tonci Huljic, and "Croatian Rhapsody" in particular, is their best product. Tonci also composed Kolibre which isn't as good but is still somewhat interesting (the part at 1:21 sounds quite Japanese and the part at 2:05 has some folkish elements that resemble Tonci's usual work for his band Magazin.)
