  1. First impressions: too many hits and even some cover versions of legendary tunes 🙂
    From a first listening, I like very much 3-4 of those 23.
    Good luck, everyone!

  2. Haven’t listened to all the songs yet. But know instantly who will get my 12, as one of my favourite artists atm is on here!!!

    I originally wanted to send Madonna but apparently she not associated with Michigan despite being born and raised there 😦
    Still not sure what state I was supposed to pick to send her, new york maybe?

    Anyways Eminem should do us proud, I also thought it’d be nice to go for different from my usual poppy style.

  3. The line up is too American for my standards :p Anyway, there are some interesting choices. I also did not wish to listen to old hits or already established artists, but anyway… I hope everyone enjoys Louisiana! An uptempo pieces among many others, but our choice is unique and cool! 🙂 Happy ranking!

  4. I have a bit of trivia regarding my entry.

    -the 3 are sisters. The blonde, Kristyn Osborn, wrote this masterpiece after her divorce. The brunette, kassidy, is the lead singer. Kelsi, the readhead is one of the harmony vocalists along with kristyn.
    -shedaisy means “sister” in Navajo.
    -they are my favorite country music act. And I’ve met them. In fact, the last time I was ever at the twin towers was for a concert of theirs.


  5. I have decided about my top4. I have to think about the rest. It’s gonna be among 9 songs.
    If I’d dare a prediction I’d say: Texas, Quebec, Tennessee (in random order) will win this FdlC 🙂
