  1. I am trying to come together with a top 10 of favourite entries from all the etsc and fdlc editions I participated in (I included fdlc 8 to that) and while I will have a full list in a few days I just wanted to put out there that my winner is pretty clear and far above everything else : “The Leading Bird” by miles. It’s literally in the top 10 of best songs I have heard in my life. And I just wanted to say a big thank you once again to Marc for bringing it forward in FDLC 5. Even if everything else was bad in our contests in terms of quality (and it is not of course) this piece of art alone would be worth the commitment to participate.

      • It’s not unrelated tho. Both songs have great lyrics. Guatemala is gorgeous, nostalgic and classy. Puerto Rico is pretty fun and smart and it has some clever turn of phrases. So I’d say that yes, part of me liking them is because of the Latin thing (at least the language).
