  2. As a non-participant in FdlC, I can openly rank these 5 good songs:

    teen flirt (great band name, perfect song)
    torreblanca (good solid entry)
    porter (another nice one, though a bit woodesque at the intro, and then folksy)
    lila (loved the intro, then it went latam pop)
    siddharta (great band name again considering i love herman hesse’s book, but the song was the only meh one imo)


      • I do like his stuff, but I read most as a teen discovering lit and so I have a specific relation to it. My favorite German author is, to no one’s surprise, Thomas Mann.


      • OK, if you read Hesse when you were young, you’re fully exused. After all, most of his work resembles an adolescent’s diary. 😉 I love Thomas Mann too but I prefer his son’s work (Klaus). And my top 3 are Rilke, Goethe and Bachmann. I love Schiller’s dramatic work too. 🙂


  3. Even though Tunisia is a Muslim country, I have Easter holidays. Tunisia’s votes will probably be sent on Sunday. 🙂


  4. Just so you guys know, I have a long few days of work ahead of me. I’m going to do my best to keep the page up to date, but it might take a little longer.


  5. That leaves Teen Flirt ft. Denise Gutiérrez – “Her Fake Name is Sofia” and Porter – “Huitzil” as 1st and 2nd place in the national final.
    The results were very close, with 1st place beating 2nd place by two points!


  6. Good Luck Patrick😊
    Since I had no time for NFs ,I was absent but I trust the music taste of yours and the voters’😊
    I am sure the best one won,good luck!


  7. So I went to bed too early and missed all the fun last night. 😦

    My 2nd favourite won. 🙂 Good luck Mexico!
