    One More Time - "Den vilda"
    (One of the most beautiful pieces of music to ever come out of Sweden! It was their entry for Eurovision Song Contest 1996 where it got 3rd place. An English version of the song was released named "The Wilderness Mistress", but the original here in Swedish sounds much better in my opinion.)

    English lyrics:

    The winter is lowering its veil and is tucking in the houses
    The fire in the tavern warms us and the food and the jugs
    There he dances with the wild one
    They are dancing like whirls in a waterfall
    Filled with pride and willpower
    Dancing like whirls in a waterfall

    But rumours are spreading among the cottages
    While snowflakes are falling
    The stars are sparkling against the ice like clear crystals
    There he runs away with the wild one
    They are rushing like whirls in a waterfall
    Filled with pride and willpower
    Rushing like whirls in a waterfall

    (Wild... wild... wild...)

    The carriage is disappearing in the night
    And the snow becomes snowdrifts along the road
    The sound of hoofs are still echoing in the mountains
    Playing carefreely like a waterfall

    The night is lowering its veil and erasing the traces
    Wherever they are, they're strong like the stream in springtime
    There he dances with the wild one
    They are dancing like whirls in a waterfall
    Filled with pride and willpower
    Dancing like whirls in a waterfall

    Filled with pride and willpower
    Dancing like whirls in a waterfall

    1/10 - What did I just listen to?

    Domenico Modugno - "Nel blu dipinto di blu (Volare)"
    (Another 3rd place Eurovision entry, this song represented Italy in 1958 and despite not winning ended up being a massive commercial success internationally. It spent five non-consecutive weeks atop the Billboard Hot 100 in August and September 1958 and was Billboard's number-one single for the year. Modugno's recording subsequently became the first Grammy winner for Record of the Year and Song of the Year at the 1st Annual Grammy Awards in 1958. So far the only non-English song being able to do so.)

    Not much going on musically here. Plays the same thing over and over. I need something more to keep me interested.
    Overall score: 4/10

    Joy Fleming - "Ein Lied kann eine Brücke sein" (English: "A Song Can Be a Bridge")

    If you can't tell by now, I'm a huge Eurovision fan. This was Germany in 1975. Should have won, instead got 17th place in a field of 19... I hope you enjoy this as much as I and the conductor did!

    Not enjoyable, 1/10

    PFC Verbruggen, really? You are in the minority. It's become sort of a fan favourite partly because of the vocal performance.

    Snarky Puppy - "Jefe"

    Disagreements are inevitable in this thread. Best not to get caught up on them, PFC.

    4.5/10
    The Icicle Works - Birds Fly (Whisper To A Scream)

  • No worries, I was not going to argue. I was just a bit surprised by his reaction. With that being said, decent song choice, Sgt. Butler; the drum parts are fun and the chorus is somewhat catchy. Not a song I would actively seek out again, tho.
    Overall score: 6/10

    Let's throw some classical into the mix!

    Johann Strauss II - "Die Fledermaus: Overture" (English: "The Bat")

    If it sounds familiar to you, it's because it was used in the Tom and Jerry episode "Tom and Jerry in the Hollywood Bowl". For me it carries a lot of nostalgia.

  • 9/10 Classic

    Willem Vermandere - Blanche en zijn peird

  • 5/10

    Yasmine Hamdan - Balad

  • Is that Arabic? Not the kind of song I would actively listen to, but not bad by any stretch.

    Lars Fredriksen - "Alltid sommer" (Norway in ESC 1998, 8th place/25)

    I read your eyes like an open book
    Living together we read each other word by word
    (To be near you)
    It's more than just the two of us can see
    (Because we have more)
    What we have is so much more

    Always eternal summer, you said
    And you came, and you saw, and you won my life
    Always eternal summer, you said
    What the others do now, means nothing
    Forever warm days, you said
    And reached out your hands and said: It feels quite good
    Oh... (Always summer, you said)

    If only I could find the words to tell what you mean to me
    We live, play together, as we take the same road
    (To love you)
    Year by year, and day by day
    (Together with you)
    Our happiness grows with every heartbeat

    Always eternal summer, you said
    And you came, and you saw, and you won my life
    Always eternal summer, you said
    What the others do now, means nothing
    Forever warm days, you said
    And reached out your hands and said: It feels quite good
    Oh... always summer, you said

    My loneliness vanished, and love won
    So come and let us live, you said: Always eternal summer

    (Always eternal summer, you said)
    And you came, and you saw, and you won my life
    Always eternal summer, you said (Always eternal summer)
    What the others do now, means nothing
    Forever warm days, you said
    And reached out your hands and said: It feels quite good
    Oh... always summer, you said
    (Ooh...) Always summer, you said

  • 7/10 - Catchy chorus, I like it! I may seek the song out again.

    Toto - "Goin' Home"

  • 5/10 - Think my father listens to this.

    Brighter - Does Love Last Forever?

  • 4/10
    Post Malone - Stay (with a fan, live, Roma)

  • 5/10

    Peter Bjorn And John - Young Folks

  • Wait! I've heard this song before, the whistling part to be exact, which is the best part. The animated video is entertaining and I would agree with the guy at 3:41. On the other hand the production value is not great and the vocals are dull.
    Overall score: 5/10

    Vulfpeck - "Dean Town"

    Joe Dart on the Fender Bass!

  • The BEAT, The BASS. Love it.

    Lovely little LOVE for you. Nat King Cole - Too Young

    The Fall (Living too Long)

  • Cheap production and almost no musical variety (drums and bass repeats the same thing through the entire song).
    Overall score: 2/10

    Vulfpeck (feat. Joey Dosik, David T. Walker & James Gadson) - "Running Away"

    Fun-fact: David T. Walker played guitar on "I Want You Back" by The Jackson 5.

  • 6.5/10

    The 1975 - It's Not Living (If It's Not With you) (Shout out to modern pop music that's actually good)

  • Hmm... yeah! You are right, this is actually good! It's easier for me to like it because there are some rock elements in there, particularly when it comes to the instrumentation. The production value screams modern pop, but surprisingly it does not feel soulless.
    This may or may not be intentional, but it's an observation I made: In the chorus, the phrase "it's not living if it's not with you", could easily be replaced with "ooh, heaven is a place on earth" (from Belinda Carlisle's 1987 hit song) and it would fit perfectly because it's essentially the same melody.
    Overall score: 7/10
