Andorra - Christopher Larkin - Sealed Vessel
Yes yes yes!
Epic music to set the mood! This is great!
The gothic feel is real, the bells and quick violins with the staccato'd percussion is awesome!
The middle slow section is tragic.
And it ends on such a mellow! Awesome choice!



Iceland - Mithras - Howling of the Distant Spaces
This is an interesting start. Intriguing even. Quite the distorted guitar. I want to hear more.
OH WAIT IT KICKED IN I DON"T WANT TO HEAR ANY MORE AAAAAAAAAaaaaaaa!!!

This has been a real time reaction session by Aristophanes.

Oh god, this gets worse as it goes on. Who entered this noise!?!?
Sorry I don't appreciate whatever it's going for, but like, that's headache inducing!



South Korea - Russell Crowe as Javert in Les Misérables - Stars
I never noticed this song was in 6/8 time and I really like that revelation!
Also, Russell Crowe has a surprisingly good voice! Really like this :)



Slovenia - Auri - I Hope Your World Is Kind
Celtic flute and another gothic feel! :O
Makes my want to get out my pitchfok because there's a beast that needs slaying. A beast with a kind heart and a lady who loves him.
Tragic.

Basically it would be perfect in Beauty and the Beast!



The Federated States of Micronesia - Jack White - Effect and Cause
"The White Stripes - Effect & Cause"
Is this correct?
I like it, and I like the lyrics, but I wouldn't go out of my way to listen to it.
His voice works for the genre well but meh.



Liechtenstein - Komar & Melamid and Dave Soldier - The Most Unwanted Song
Oh god, this is 21 minutes long...
I hate you for making me waste a vote :P
Honestly didn't mind a lot of this, and liked some of it a lot better than some songs that have been entered in these contests.
Like if they weren't purposely making it SO extra, it could be decent.

13 minutes in and they're recommending I shop at Wal-Mart on Labour Day which is...almost ironic?

Listened to it all. Wasn't so bad! Why tho.



USA - Andrés - Andrespacito
Oh no. Is this a Despacito meme?
Oh! It's not! And it's decent! :O
Solid beat and good vocals. His fastrapping is nice. Still something I find very hard to understand but he does a good job of it!



Australia - The Rubens - God Forgot
This is good stuff! I really enjoy the whole thing to the point I don't have any specific compliments towards it!


Hungary - Dankó Szilvia - Jegenyefán fészket rak a csóka
Fun stuff! Euro Techno beat or whatever I like!
I do feel like it's harder to get into sometimes unless it's got something that will grab you, mostly because of the language difference, and this didn't have that for me. It lost me when it sped up too sadly.



Republic of South Ossetia - Goodnight, Texas - Tucumcari
Solid southern feel. Follows Westerns very well which gives it a lot more depth than a lot of modern country songs.
Oh, and the heavy guitar ending is great!



Macau - Japanese Breakfast - Boyish
Oh, I wasn't sure about this at the beginning, but it's got a really nice miz between a throwback highschool dance and newer vocalization styles.


Greenland - Gorillaz - Kids With Guns (Jamie T Remix)
I thought I had 2 tabs playing at once when this started. It didn't get better.


Djibouti - The Dead South - In Hell I'll Be In Good Company
Ah, my own song. It's a little out of place in this contest but that's aight!


Latvia - R3HAB & KSHMR - Karate
This started out really slow and I was quite wary due to the artist names.
But once it kicked in I enjoyed it!
And quite the video! lol Did 2 girls combine into one in a spinning karate room at one point!?



Bhutan - Tom McGuire and the Brassholes - Ric Flair
This is fun! I love the sound and videos like this are good fun :)

"Whenever Ric "WOO"s, its always B flat
(Actually C sharp but who’s checkin)"
Oh my god this is fucking good! XD XD

Trombone solo sells it for me! This song is fantastic!



Somalia - Minus the Bear - Dr. L'Ling
This is a nice piece but the guitar is a bit too intense for me tbh.


Egypt - Sydney Gish - Bird Tutorial
Gah! This is legit taking Lichtenstein's spot on the list because I actually enjoyed it quite a bit but there's not enough to it to give a proper spot!
I hope someone else has the true 0 score blocked.



Taiwan - Nezumihanabi - クラッシュ (I think it means Crash)
GDI!
When the video started with her walking alone down the street I figured this would be something cute and fluffy. The guitar is so grating in this though! :(
And his voice isn't nice at all, sounds way overextended.
And like, the video has a story for sure, but I don't get it. It counts down. Spells out "You and me", "crash", Aaaaaasexsexsex", and "crash" again among the ones I picked up on but I sincerely do not understand and it flashed too fast for me to process anything.



Tanzania - Kate Nash - Merry Happy
"Merry Happy" - *starts with minor progressions*
Already hooked.

She's totally trying to convince herself she's happy now and can be alright alone. Wow!
I actually really love this! Feel this song really hard tbh.



Finland - Laura Voutilainen - Liljankukka
Gah, this deserves to be a ranking song but I don't have slots left and it doesn't feel quite enough to knock out any of the others.
I did enjoy it though!



The top 3 I voted for in this contest all deserve top spot and I an so sad I can't give it to them all!
Well done guys!

i didn't pick up on that line at all on my listen, you inspired me to go back and listen with the lyrics
=D

The lyrics in that song are on point! Glad to have been a positive influence :)
