I wish someone in Malta could write a song with this much humour and attitude. Instead of all those super serious and shouty songs about how we’re all broken but we’re also warrior wolves on the inside.

How do ŵe start a campaign that let’s the Norwegian public know how much they need to pick this song? It’s destined to be another Laika and that will be Eurovision’s great loss.

I was wondering last week what she was up to these days!

The difference between Laika and Scandilove is the performer. The Hungry Hearts were not known (and they still aren’t).

Ida Maria has during the past year become a popular household name, despite her long carreer. She was in the Norwegian version of “…

Good to know, Ronny, thanks. My thinking was, does a domestic audience voting for a song sometimes miss the potential impact that song could have internationally at Eurovision. The Hungry Hearts would have had huge publicity, for example, had it been s…

Back in 2016, and still til this day I wanted “Laika” to win MGP. I think they would have received a lot of attention from both media and fans. A lesbian performance art group chanting “The streets of Moscow, with my girlfriend” would have been both pr…

    I am sorry Ronny…but Laika would be fanwank indeed. The kind of song which only works in the “fan bubble”, at least among gay / lesbian fans. I found the song / performance utterly BAD and tasteless, and would really be embarrassed by my vcountry if …

Loved her first album (UK Album might not have been her first) lost touch after that. Not sure about this song though

Norway generally votes for songs over singers at MGP. Ida’s song is great but it’s probably too niche to get the votes it will need to win MGP.

All I can hear is “if you’ll be my bodyguard, I will be your long lost pal from Paul Simon’s Call Me Al… apart from that it’s very quirky though, think I like it!

And the Alexander Cumback song is also fresh and quirky (except for the scatting in the middle, scoobi doobi dop is NEVER acceptable!)

    Ha! You may not have got the Scatman reference – which makes it kinda better!

As beach vacation destinations go, Vietnam perhaps isn’t the obvious choice. However, the country’s beaches are beautiful enough to rival those of the more famous Thailand resorts, and there are plenty that haven’t yet been spoiled by high-rise resorts and…  Đọc tiếp

Bristol music people. This whole St Philips Gate mystery-venue-that-has-to-keep-moving-its-gigs-to-other-venues thing has been troubling me. So I did what all good troubled people should do and went out and paced every yard of the St Philips and Feeder Road area to…  Đọc tiếp
