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!

Music Of The Month: April.

Time for Music Of The Month. I am so excited for next month, because Eurovision is on TV and I am going to see Panic! At The Disco! I still have 3 Eurovision songs in this months favorites, but I didn’t mention them in my last Music Of The Month.

Alan Walker – Faded.

My uncle showed me this song, but when he showed me at the time I wasn’t interested in this song. But a few weeks later I heard it again on the radio and I loved it. I searched for this song, but I couldn’t find it. Until this song was on the radio again and I decided to use Shazam.

All Time Low – Missing You.

When All Time Low released the video of this song, I became addicted again. I love this song so much and the lyrics are amazing! I love the videoclip, because they are talking to fans all over the world and they filmed it in my favorite city London.

Zo√ę – Loin D’ici.

Before I went to Eurovision In Concert I didn’t like this song. But after hearing it live, I am such a fan. Zo√ę is so adorable and the song live is so cute. She got the biggest applause of the evening.

J√ľri Pootsmann – Play.

When I heard this song for the first time I fell in love with it. I really love his voice, it is so unique. Everytime I listen to this song, I just can’t get over the fact how amazing his voice is.

Poli Genova – If Love Was A Crime

Poli participated at Eurovision in 2011 to, she didn’t reach the final that year. But I am pretty sure she will reach it this year. If Love Was A Crime is so good! After I heard it live it also grew on me and she is now in my top 3!

 

 

Music Of The Month March

It is time for Music Of The Month! I will warn you this is an Eurovision Edition. I have only one song that has nothing to do with Eurovision. I didn’t just pick any songs from the Eurovision. Only my top favourite songs and one song didn’t even made it to Eurovision. If you love discovering new music, please stick around!

Amir – J’ai Cherch√©

This is the French entry for Eurovision and currently it is in my top 3. Everytime I listen to this song I fall in love over and over again. I really love the french and english parts and I love the intro. Sadly they had to cut the intro out, because of the 3 minute rule. France has never been so high in my eurovision top and next month I am going to see him live.

Sergey Lazarev – You’re The Only One.

Sergey is my favourite Russian singer and when they announced that he would go to Eurovision for Russia in december I was really happy. Early this month they released the song. This song is my favourite song so far. I was scared he would dissapoint me, but he didn’t. I like the style of the song and it is a typical Sergey song.

Robin Bengtsson – Constellation Prize.

This is my favourite entry in Melodifestivalen. Sadly Sweden this year won’t be in my favourites. This song is so good and I really love the lyrics of it. Also I love the harmonica. I love to listen to this song in my car with full volume. Robin has really beautiful eyes.

Justs – Heartbeat.

I love the Latvian song, but the song keeps switching between my 3th and 4th place. I love the style of this song and the voice from Justs The songwriter from this song is last years participant Aminata. I was pretty sure this song would win, because it was the best song and they kicked out my favourite before the final.

Bring Me the Horizon – Follow You. 

Because this month I mainly listened to Eurovision songs I am not up to date with my other bands or the top 40 music here. That is why I was really happy that Bring Me The Horizon released the video of Follow You. It is a strange video, but I love the song. It is not my favourite from their latest album, but I love the whole album in general.

Music Of The Month: February

It is time for another Music Of The Month, this month the songs are mostly from the Eurovision pre-selections and probably next month too. It is because the Eurovision pre-selections are taking place now. Which means I listen more to that music.

Freddie – Pioneer.

This song is in the Hungarian pre-selection and tomorrow we will know if he will represent Hungary at the Eurovision Song Contest. I really hope he will go, because I love his voice. His voice is just so good and his song is amazing. Hungary will be in my top 10 for sure and maybe even top 3.You will hear why!

Albin & Mattias – Rik.

This song is from the Swedish pre-selection. Sweden is really strict with their songs, because the songs who are in the final are no where to be found on the internet. This song is in Andra Chansen (which means Second Chance) and is available online. I really love Mattias his voice and this song is in Swedish. I am not into rap that much, but I like it.

Lighthouse X – Soldiers Of Love.

This band are representing Denmark in May! I was really happy with the Danish choice and after last year I am happy they are back in my favourites. This song may not be the strongest one, but this is my guilty pleasure so far. This song has been stuck in my head for over a week now and I still love it.

Nicky Byrne – Sunlight.

This guy is representing Ireland at the Eurovision Song Contest. It was one of the first Eurovision songs and this year Ireland is in my favourite. I really love the style of this song and I can see it doing well in Stockholm in May. I don’t think it will win, but Ireland will be in the final once again!

Twenty One Pilots – Stressed Out.

The first time I heard this song, I didn’t knew this song was from Twenty One Pilots. I really love this song a lot and this has been my tune for the 2 weeks. It is one of the songs I have been listening to besides the eurovision songs. Everytime I hear this song on the radio, the volume is going up!

De Staat – Peptalk.

This song is amazing. Everytime I listen to this song the volume goes up. Literally! I am not into their other songs that much, but this one is definitly my favourite song of them! You really should check them out, because it is a great band.

Music Of The Month: January

First Music Of The Month from 2016! Today I will show you the songs I listened the most to. I find January a boring month with Music. Almost nothing is released and I discovered almost no new music.

Panic! At The Disco – Don’t Threaten Me With A Good Time.

This¬† month Panic! At The Disco released their new album and Don’t Threaten Me With A Good Time was the first song being released in 2016. I really love this song and I have been listening to this a lot. Eventhought it is not my favourite from their new album: Death By¬†A Bachelor. My favourite song from their new album is: House Of Memories.

To Kill A King – Wolves.

I rediscovered To Kill A King this month, I used to listen to them a lot while I was writing. Since I wasn’t writing a lot anymore, I haven’t listened to them. I started writing this month again and I realised how much I missed To Kill A King. I get relaxed when I listen to them.

Donny Montell¬†– I’ve Been Waiting For This Night.

I know Donny Montell from Eurovision 2012, where he participated for Lithuania. Back then I didn’t like his song.¬†This year he is back in the Lithuanian pre-selection and I must say I love his song.¬†I really like these kind of songs. I hope he will win the Lithuanian final and will once again participate for Lithuania.

Our Last Night – Sorry (Cover).

On Twitter I saw that Our Last Night would upload a new cover and I love it when they do covers. This month they did a cover of Justin Biebers Sorry and I must say I love the cover more then the orginal!

Bastille – The Draw.

I have been listening a lot to Bastille the past 2 weeks and they deserved to be in this post of Music Of The Month. The Draw is my second favourite of their album All This Bad Blood and I listened to The Draw the most this time. Bastille is currently working on their new album, which will be released in 2016! I included a studio version and live version, because I just adore the Live version.

Music Of The Year, Part 2: Eurovision

Music Of The Year, Part 2: Eurovision

Today I have part 2 of Music Of The Year and today I will talk about my favourite Eurovision songs. Last week I made part 1, if you haven’t seen it check it out (here). It is a pretty long list, because I also included some songs from the pre-selections! Let’s start.

Preselection Denmark

Anne Gadegaard – Suitcase.

4251-dzb9rsshzjefo34nw2dydq

The Danish pre-selection was pretty dissapointing this year and I only have one favourite and that is Suitcase by Ann Gadegaard. I really love the style of the song. The studio version is a bit better than the live version. Denmark didn’t choose her to go to Eurovision.

Latvian Pre-Selection.

Markus Riva – Take Me Down.

10960713_10152827058319086_724823050_o

I knew Markus Riva from the latvian pre-selection in 2014. Back then he participated with Lights on, but he didn’t win. This year he was back with a different song then last year. I really love this song a lot and I love his voice. It may not be the strongest voice, but it is good. He didn’t win and I was really dissapointed. (I still am). Hopefully he will participate next year again!

Finnish Pre-Selection.

Satin Circus – Crossroads

x2a6338-pressi

I was watching a YouTube video with all the Finnish Participants and when I saw this song I fell in love with it. I really love this song and this is probably my most played pre-selection song. I was pretty sure that this song was going to Eurovision, but then it didn’t…. And I was really dissapointed, because Finland sended the worst song of this year to Eurovision and they didn’t reach the final. Satin Circus, please come back in 2016.

Melodifestivalen.

The Swedish Pre-selection is my favourite to watch.

Ellen Benediktson – Insomnia.

b-irr3hicaaipr7

She changed a lot since 2014 and this year I really loved her song! I love dance songs. Her 2014 song was pretty boring, but this years song is amazing. Sadly the Swedish voters didn’t share my thoughts and she didn’t even reach the final.

Behrang Miri Ft. Victor Crone РDet Rar Vi Inte För.

behrang_miri_victor_crone-570x330

First of all¬†a song in their own language. I love songs in their own language, eventhought I don’t understand a single thing, I love it. I knew Behrang already, but together with Victor Crone they made an amazing song. Again Sweden didn’t share my opinion and they reached Andra Chansen (Second Chance), but no Final.

 

Dinah Nah – Make Me LaLaLa.

dinah-nah-melodifestivalen-2015

This song has grown on me and now it is one of my favourite songs! I love these kind of songs. This song reached the final of Melodifestivalen and I was really happy about that!

Mariette – Don’t Stop Believing.

mariette-melodifestivalen-2015-malmo-2

If Mans didn’t win Melodifestivalen, this would be my second choice. The lyrics of this song are so beautiful and they make me have a postive feeling.¬†I¬†didn’t see the semi-final where she was in, so I¬†heard the song for the first¬†live in the¬†final.¬†I love her style on stage and her voice.

Eurovision Songs.

And now let’s go to my favourite Eurovision songs this year!

Germany – Ann Sophie – Black Smoke.

deutschland656_v-ardgalerie

Germany, my neighbour country! I really loved their song this year. Ann Sophie is a great singer, but she didn’t deserve 0 points in the final. There were songs that were so worse and even they got a better place then her. Anyways she had a great performance¬† and she deserved to be there!

Belarus – Uzari & Maimuna – Time.

6483924-3x2-940x627

This song has grown so much on me, after their released their videoclip this song became one of my favourites. I played their song all the time! When they didn’t reach the Eurovision Final, I was dissapointed. Even more dissapointed¬†about them then my own country (sorry Trijntje).

Estonia РElina Born Ft. Stig Rästa РGoodbye To Yesterday.

Elina Born & Stig Rästa

I loved this song from the beginning, but it kind of reminded me of the Dutch entry in 2014. This was one of the possible winners this year and Estonia did a great job choosing them! I loved their performance on stage.

Sweden РMans Zelmerlöw РHeroes.

landscape_music-mans-zemmerlow-performs-heroes

My number one favourite! This is the winner of Eurovision and my favourite. I knew Mans already before he participate at Melodifestivalen 2015. Since I watch Melodifestivalen I got to know some great artists, including Mans. Since the first time I heard this song, I loved it so much and for me this was and is the winner of the 2015 Eurovision Song Contest.

Belgium – Loic Nottet – Rythm Inside.

60683

Belgium was for me the darkhorse of this years Eurovision. This song is inspired by a song by Lorde and it did very well in Vienna. Belgium was one of the possible winners to. I liked the song from the start and I must say this song grown on me. Loic has a unique voice, which you can recognize out of thousands. Well done Belgium!

Australia – Guy Sebastian – Tonight Again.

guy1

I actually thougt this song would win Eurovision! When I heard this song for the first time I was really impressed. This is really top 40 material and I played this song over and over again! After Eurovision I have listened to this song a lot.  He became my worthy number 2.

Slovenia – Maraaya – Here For You.

eurovisionsongcontest2015semifinal266l31gktc1zl

Her voice is amazing and also like Loic Nottet a unique voice. I also really like the style of their song and I also have played this song a lot. This song was also a possible winner.

Norway – Debrah Scarlett & Morland – A Monster Like Me.

music-eurovision-final-2015-0_1

Before Eurovision In Concert I liked this song after Eurovision In Concert I loved it, so much. It such a beautiful song and I am not a ballad person, but this song is so amazing. Norway got my third place.

United Kingdom – Electro Velvet – Still In Love With You.

electro-velvet-united-kingdom-at-eurovision-song-contest

You all probably will think what the hell…. Well this song my was guilty pleasure this year! I kinda love it and Electro Velvet are really nice in real life! I hoped it would do good, but I didn’t. But still I kinda love this song. Well their perfomance was really nice.

Azerbaijan – Elnur Huseynov – Hour Of The Wolf.

82772299-efde-41c2-a4d2-a6a66daa8411_mw1024_s_n

Back in 2008 Elnur participated with samir for Azerbaijan and this year he was back with a beautiful song. I really like this song, but I didn’t like his performance itself on Eurovision. For this song the performance was a bit to busy and I didn’t really understand it.

Israel – Nadav Guedj – Golden Boy.

nadavguedjeurovisionsongcontest2015rehearsalssahhp9w0u7ll

Let’s party with Israel! Israel surpised me this year with their party song and Europe loved it to! Between all these songs israel was one of the songs that stood out!

Georgia – Nina Sublatti – Warrior.

ninasublattieurovisionsongcontest2015-fudfu6xe5wl

This song went from non-favourite to favourite in three minutes. That is the main reason she got in this blogpost. Her Eurovision performance was amazing and she was really good. A very strong contestant.
