Re: Rafachat - Vol. 80: It's comeback time baby!!! :rocker2:

I'm still very devastated, and (depressed - tennis wise, not real life) by the Maria loss in Madrid, but hoping that the Egg will rot early on will make me feel better.

How are you guys?

Hi Abel! I'm quite OK.
Finished watching the Eurovision Song Contest, no need for you to know what it is.
Me & Hilde in the final! But WTF was that - no Balkan country into the final but all ex-Soviets?!!??!! :counfused: And Montenegro or Croatia weren't that bad this time. Btw I liked Lithuania.

Re: Rafachat - Vol. 80: It's comeback time baby!!! :rocker2:

Quite a surprise that Belgium is through, given the bad reviews the song had gotten. Perhaps it's due to the fact that most of the singers were female (nearly all with a classic pale dress on) and so, the male singers tend to stick out?

I'm glad that Anouk is through for The Netherlands. Anouk is a class act.

Did you see the song for Serbia (last one?). That had a huge WTF percentage, didn't it? I mean, the outfits were, I assume, supposed to be fun and cheeky, but they were badly designed in the sense that it just didn't have the right cut for the girls wearing it.

Can't remember the song from Montenegro but I do remember Croatia. A group of good male singers but I think that they ruined it by attaching a crappy cheap-sounding beat to it. It sounded like one of those beats you can hear when you push a certain button on toy synthesizers.

Hilde!
Estonian song wasn't rated high either and our girl actually didn't belive she'd get to the final. They were all very happy, and I think our girl has a great voice, well the ballad is ... a ballad. Not gonna comment on the dress, our stylist is horrible! I'm sure Andreea would have more input on the dresses.

Montenegro, LOL look at the video, those were the rap guys, space cowboys or whatever, I found it hilarious.

Oh right, the space rappers.
Only in eurosong.
That's why people watch really. Just to see just how daft the acts will be.

Estonia had a very classic eurovision song (old style eurosong) and I liked that she's singing in her own language but I have to agree. The dress is

I just read that the outfits for the Serbian singers were designed by somebody who also designs for Lady Gaga. I'm assuming that he was drunk while making the outfits for eurosong.

LOL if the person designs for Lady Gaga then that was to be expected.

P.S. I wonder what Andreea thinks of the Romanian guy's Farinelli impersonation, I heard him singing. Haven't listened to the other songs really.

I liked the Belgian song! First time I heard it was last night and it's got a really catchy feel to it. Not surprised it progressed. Glad to see Netherlands finally got through as well, risky to send such a downbeat song but it worked.

K-pop?

Last night, I woke up because my neighbor was shouting "Tu ne penses qu'à la mort...Tu ne penses qu'à la mort...Tu ne penses qu'à la mort..." over and over.
(translated: "You only think about death")


I could hear their little girl shouting, in an effort to get through to him, to her dad to be quiet but he kept on ranting loudly.

I tried K-pop (Korean pop) but it seems it's not my thing. I used http://seoul.fm to check it out. Usually I like pop music just fine but I didn't warm up to that style. These days I often listen to a Finnish radio while going to work.

Not much. The Rasmus, HIM... Maybe a couple more bands. I'm slowly expanding my knowledge now but I care much more about individual songs than about artists. I forget who sings it but recently I've heard the song about dancing with angels a lot.

I loved HIM. Ville Valo's voice is something!
I love Apocalyptica.

Have you ever heard of a Finnish band called Dingo, when I was a little schoolgirl we had Dingomania. Oh those were the days.

I wanted to come back and thank Evita for the link to the Castle forum and the good explanation of the finale situation

I tried to to it yesterday but had to wait a little bit cos I'm trying to avoid Eurovision semi spoilers and when I came I saw people talking about it
