  1. So after a day of reflection, I have gathered my self together. Things are not as bad as they originally might have seemed. Yes, it was a disappointing result for personally, especially as I do love the song. I too became rather jaded with the experience of this edition sadly and that with some expectancy for a reasonable result didn’t help matters. But this was, for many, a fine edition and quite a number of us did have a dilema with finalising points. I do of course still think Denmark was worthy of placing higher, but this was not to be. Didn’t mean people hated the song and it is heartening to read that a number of you did have it ranked just outside the points or mid-table.I still am pleased I shared it with most of you who didn’t know it already.
    Onwards to ETSC we go and after listening carefully and watching my entrant’s performance, I am more than satisfied in taking up the challenge of trying for a good placing in Copenhagen. Well a Top 25 is the aim since I haven’t even managed that in 3 attempts lol.
    This time Israel means business……..

  2. I see some people are upset with the results and I cant blame them…Every kind of statistics written here is making the least competitive person competitive…It’s in human nature and we can’t help it…Nobody wants to lose even if they seem they are OK with it..I think all these statistics are ruining the spirit of the contest!

    I really miss the old days where we talked about songs not rankings!

      Well, it depends on who you are. I got a bad result this time, and I am genuinely OK with it. It hasn’t diminished my devotion to the contest. I just wanted to share the song 🙂

    • Well I can say I am actually fine really Mermaid, It was just the initial result but in the grand scale of things everything is fine on that score, plus As I mentioned, I had become weary with this fine edition. I really enjoy listening to the songs and sharing the music,I like to do my own personal rankings but maybe I shall just post them onto my profile rather than as a post, that way people can decide for themselves if they wish to read them. I certainly don’t mean to upset anyone when I post them and try and explain how my decisions are formed, (I usually like most of the songs anyway). It is also such fun HoDing a country (well, I certainly enjoy it 🙂 ). Plus all the chit chat and banter along the way is certainly what I also find so enjoyable 🙂
      I suppose some people could get a bit fixated with stats and tbh I actually don’t mind them but I suppose they can affect people in different ways.
      Are you around for the reveal on ESC 7? Am lucky enough to be on early, I think.

      • Knowing Morgan, it’ll be one by one.
        I might last the duration but will see how long it goes on until. If it starts 7pm Irish time then it could be finished by midnight (hopefully not much later) but that maybe wishful thinking lol 🙂

    • Ppl aren’t upset about their resultS, let alone about the trivia (not exactly statistics)…, which by the way people are always requesting to see.


  3. So sad that Dr Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu has passed away aged only 46 years old!
    He came 9th for Warren in FdlC16 with his song ‘Bapa’ which I adored and got my 12pts.

    RIP 😦

    • Andy
      thank you very much for this info!
      this is very sad. what a legend he was. a friend from australia introduced his music to me some ten years ago. in fact it was the indigeneous band Yothu Yindi whose frontman and main songwriter he was. i am very surprised that he was only 41 years old. his band was founded in the 1980s. rip Mr Yunupingu.

      here’s an iconic song by the group Yothu Yindi.

      this is one of my favourite songs. it is a collaboration with Blue King Brown, an aussie urban roots band that i appreciate very much.

    • This was very sad to hear. Of all of my entries this was my favourite and his death makes it even more emotional. I listen to the song often. His music will inspire a lot of first nation Australians to become musicians in their own right.

      • It is so sad Warren but I must thank you again for bringing him to our attention at FdlC. I played him to my sister and best friend today and they loved him. His music will live on and am sure he will be remembered fondly.

      • I like to think outside the box and becuase of the top ten position with this entry I will continue you to do so.
