    My Balkan wife approves, 8/10 tears for the old times.

    Keeping in the Southern european vibe, here's a hit that is constantly played in Macedonia.

    This is the kind of song I wish North Macedonia would send to Eurovision. Always loved the sound of Balkan music with ethnic elements.

    Here's a Norwegian summer hit played regularly since I was born (1996):

    Postgirobygget - "Idyll"

    It was sunset
    There was laughter, there was song
    It was summerfree
    There was sea and magic
    There was you and there was me
    There were memories that never will die
    There was eternity
    And a sun that colored the sky red

    There was beer
    Intoxicating words
    There was summer, there was sun
    There were hearts on fire
    Calm water, everything on this earth
    And there was love
    And memories that never will die
    A sun that colored the sky red - Idyll

    The summer was ending
    This was the last night
    We laid on our backs, I felt safe
    But a little cold nevertheless
    We laid and looked at the stars
    And listened to the song from the terns
    We both knew how it would end
    And that we'd never forget how it was

    There was beer
    Intoxicating words
    There was summer, there was sun
    There were hearts on fire
    Calm water, everything on this earth

    And maybe one day I'll see you again
    We'll stop and talk and you'll come home with me
    So we'll see what happens in time
    While we think back on memories and laugh

    There was beer
    Intoxicating words
    There was summer, there was sun
    There were hearts on fire
    Calm water, everything on this earth
    And there was love
    The memories will never die
    A sun that colored the sky red - Idyll

    Barefoot in warm sea, the sun colored the sky red, the memories will never die - Idyll

    You don't have to listen to every ballade, the 1st one is my personal favorite

  • edited August 2019

    From a composition standpoint it's a 10/10, but with this type of music you have to be in the right mood to fully appreciate it or else you might find it boring.
    Overall score: 8/10

    Here's a hot funk jam released just a few of days ago:

    Cory Wong - "Lunchtime"

    (Featuring Sonny T. on bass guitar - who used to play in Prince's backing band The New Power Generation.)

  • 7/10, I like funk.

    The opening track to Lava's latest studio album Water released last week:

  • 3/10

    Primitive Radio Gods - Standing Outside A Broken Phone Booth With Money In My Hand

  • 5/10

    Billy Joel - "My Life"

  • 8/10

    Love the 80s and that keyboard / piano; Bass too.

    Kent - "FF"

    The letters of the song title likely stands for Franska Flickan - Swedish for "the French girl", referring to Nancy Danino who sings the choruses in French in addition to the spoken verse.

  • 7/10, good 80s stuff

  • edited September 2019


    More good 80s stuff incoming:

    Lava - "Take Your Time"

  • edited September 2019

    6/10 good 80's song but i'm more of a 70's guy myself.

    Stevie Wonder - "Superstition"

  • 10/10 just like your shooting, pvt.

  • 10/10 (Duh!)

    Arvingarna - "Eloise"

    Sweden's entry in Eurovision Song Contest 1993 (7th place).

  • Re-stating this for those who seem to have missed Captain Hill's rule #1 for the thread.

    @Cpt. Hill said:

    The rules:

    • You must post artist name and track name.
    • You must provide a URL to listen to the track (YouTube, MySpace, etc).
    • You cannot rate your own tracks.
    • And of course no extremely negative comments if you don't like a persons song.


    The Black Tones - Ghetto Spaceship

  • The song is too basic for my taste and the production is mediocre. On a positive note, I like his voice.
    Rating: 3/10

    Cheezy Keys - "Come Back to Me"

    From the movie soundtrack to Olsenbanden jr. på rocker'n.

  • 1/10 though it did send me down a rabbit hole of memories of my trip to Oslo a couple years ago which was nice! (also the lead singer of The Black Tones is a woman? may be an issue with your mixer? hahaha)

    Tinariwen - "Tenere Maloulat" (feat. Warren Ellis from The Bad Seeds)


    In an unbroken solitude, thoughts appear from nowhere. They frighten me.
    And, lost in the night, my thirst, my desire for water awakened me.
    Oh love, dreaming of your tale has exhausted me.
    I have no hate left for anyone; my soul is confused.
    I believe in no one now.
    I’ve become the son of gazelles, who grew up in the meanderings of the desert.

    I haven't heard a lot of Algerian music, but this is good.
    Rating: 7/10

    Oh night, oh night
