Blog silence.

Hello Everyone,

As you noticed it has been silent around my blog. The past month I had no inspiration to write any blogposts, but since past Thursday I decided to try and start my blog again. I am mainly going to write about music, but sometimes there will be a different blogpost. I am not going to set any dates when I will upload, but I’ll let you know.

Thanks in advance!

Music Throwback #1

A few days ago I decided to make a spotify list for my all time favorite songs. Which means songs from the past and songs now a days. While I was writing down some songs, I got the idea to do a Music Throwback blogpost. In every blogpost I will talk about 1 song I used to listen to, but still love!

The first song of this series is from Yves Larock and it is called Rise Up. This song was released in 2008, back in the days it was my summer tune and I watched the videoclip over and over again. Just to listen to this song. When I heard this song on the radio a few days ago, I immediatly started to sing along. I still knew all the words. This song gives me a summervibe and hopefully the weather will be better soon, so I can enjoy this song more!

Music Of The Month: May 

This months music of the month won’t include any Eurovision songs. I decided to not put them in this blogpost, because May mainly was about Eurovision. Today I will give you 5 non-Eurovision songs that I loved this month.

Twenty One Pilots – Ride.

First of all the new Twenty One Pilotes single. I am in love with it! It is so good and I am starting to like them more and more.

Justin Timberlake – Can’t Stop The Feeling!

I saw him performing at the Eurovision (on tv). I am not a fan of Justin Timberlake, but some of his songs I really like and this is one of them. It was also really cool to see him at Eurovision.

DNCE – Cake By The Ocean.

Everytime this song is on the radio, I can’t help it but I just want to sing along with it. This song is so catchy.

Bastille – Pompeii.

The first song from Bastille I ever heard and again this song is really catchy. I can’t believe I am going to see them in June. I am so excited to finally see them again, hopefully with new an amazing music.

You Me At Six – Loverboy.

And my first ever You Me At Six song. After Eurovision this has been my tune. I have been listening to them every single day!

The number 2 was mentioned 3 times. the number 3 was mentioned 2 times and the other countries were just mentioned one times.

  1. France.
  2. Bulgaria, Iceland, Russia.
  3. Israel, Spain, Croatia, Latvia, Estonia, Hungary.

I decided to count them in a different way, the amount of times they were mentioned as number 1, 2 or 3. After I did that I saw we had a clear top 3. Which means I will reveal the top 3.

Eurovision 2016 Top 10 

Eurovision 2016 Top 10 

In a few days the Eurovision Song Contest 2016 will start and I am so excited! This year Eurovision will be held in Sweden, Stockholm. Their theme is: Come Together. Also Sweden made a change in the televote, I am not sure if I like that or not.

If you want to see my full top 42, I will add it into this blogpost to!

This year it would have been 43 countries that would sing in Sweden, but Romania got disqualified, because they still had to pay a lot of money. It is good they are disqualified, but it is so sad for their singer.

The Netherlands are back in the game again! When I first heard our song, I disliked it! But this song has grown so much on me and I really hope Douwe Bob will qualify, because a finale without your country isn’t fun.

10. Spain.

Spain

Barei – Say Yay.

Spain

This song has come a long way, from a non favorite to a favorite. It has grown so much on me and this song is not a typical song that spain would send. I find it really catchy and it is so easy to remember. She is amazing live.

Spain will sing in the final!

09. Hungary.

Hungary

Freddie – Pioneer. 

Hungary

I am so happy that Hungary chose him! I really love his voice. Eventhought I wished he had more of a rock song for his voice. I still love this song a lot and this is my favorite hungarian entry ever! I also love the message of this song.

Hungary will sing in the first semi-final.

08. Israel.

Israel

Hovi Star – Made Of Stars.

Israel

Before Israel made this version of the song, I really didnt like the song at all. It was such an forgetable song, but then they released this version. I fell in love with this song and I am so happy they did a revamp. Hovi sings this song so beautiful and I enjoy every minute of this song!

Israel will sing in the second semi-final.

07. Croatia

Croatia

Nina Kraljic – Lighthouse.

Croatia

Croatia is back and they are stronger than ever! I missed this country so much and they decided to take Eurovision serious. I really love this song and I love Nina’s voice. I was scared she wouldn’t be that good live, but she is really good!

Croatia will sing in the first semi-final.

06. Iceland.

Iceland

Greta Salome – Hear Them Calling.

Iceland

I liked this song before I went to Eurovision in Concert, but after the concert I knew this could be a possible dark horse. She is so good live and the song has a strong message. At the beginning I prefered the Icelandic version, but still this version is amazing! I just hope she won’t be underrated!

Iceland will sing in the first semi-final.

05. Russia.

Russia

Sergey Lazarev – You’re the Only One.

Russia

Finally after screaming to Russia for 8 years that they had to send Sergey to Eurovision, they finally did it. Sergey is my favorite Russian singer and I knew he wouldn’t dissapoint me. I still can’t believe he is actually going. This song is amazing and Russia is in it to win it! His vocals live are amazing and all I can say is I love this song a lot! This will be atleast in the top 5

Russia will sing in the first semi-final.

04. Estonia.

Estonia

Jüri Pootsmann – Play.

Estonia

This guy has such an amazing voice! I really love his deep voice and that is the main reason I love this song so much! I find his voice very mysterious and Jüri’s facial expression are just gold!

Estonia will sing in the first semi-final.

03. Bulgaria.

Bulgaria

Poli Genova – If Love Was A Crime.

Bulgaria

Best Bulgarian entry! When they announced that Poli would participate again for Bulgaria, I thought their song would be a rock song, but it wasn’t. I must say this song is so much better! Poli is amazing live and I want this to qualify, because Bulgaria deserves to be in the final.

Bulgaria will sing in the second semi-final.

02. Latvia.

Latvia

Justs – Heartbeat.

Latvia

I normally don’t like the style of these kind of songs, but I just love it a lot. Justs has an amazing voice and I love it when he sings higher and puts his power into it. I catch myself listening to this song all the time. Latvia did once again an amazing job.

Latvia will sing in the second semi-final.

01. France.

France

Amir – J’ai Cherché

France

This song gives me so much feelings everytime I listen to it. It makes me fall in love with this song over and over again. I normally not a fan of French songs, but this is so amazing. I love the French and English parts, because it sounds amazing. Amir is such a charming singer. If anyone last year said to me that I actually would have France as my winner, I probably would have told them that they were crazy. I still can’t believe it how good this song.

France will sing in the final.

Please respect my opinion!
