Undeservedly Rejected - 2008
« on: December 21, 2007, 11:05:22 PM »
Post Songs that are rejected during the NF seasons you fell shouldn't have been :)

First one is from Iceland
It participated in the icelandic semi final of death - alongside Hara and Eurobandia - so this great song had no real chance

My main one is from Malta. Carravaggion would have been top of my list for this year had it made it and its such a shame Claudio didnt have the idea Morena had of telling her fans which of her two songs to vote for



Other ones would be

Carolin Fochtenbacher - Germany
The Revelations - UK
Coral - Spain
Leona Daly - Ireland
Sanna Nielsen - Sweden
Sergey Lazerav - Russia

I am completely shocked because Estonia decided to send "Leto Svet" in stead of "365 Days" by Birgit

I had in mind to post such a thread, except I'm new and shy

anyway every year, I watch every single national finals, and I rank all songs.. and I mean all songs from the year, all together.. First of all I select a round number of "good songs" depending on how high the year's level is.. for 2008, it was 100 songs.. then I rank them all, from 100th to 30th, then 15 songs which I call "semi-finalists" are ranked from 30th to 16th.. in order to know which, I do my own esc system : I give a rank out of 10 for melody, one for lyrics, one for voice, one for performance and one for look, except melody and lyrics are worth 3 times more than performance and look, and voice 2 times, so I end up with a score out of 100 and the 15 lowest entries are left out.. then I end up with my Glorious Fifteen, the 15 best songs of the year.. I give them randomly (by real player "randomize the list") a running order, and then I listen and listen until I know how to rank them, from the best until the 15th.. I will post here the 2008 out come of all this later (as I write this, everything's done except the final ranking of Glorious Fifteen 2008)

totally agreed.. Estonia for once had a really good national final, with many fine songs and two really good ones, "Ice-cold story" being one of them imo

After listening and watching all the songs again here's my top 5 of the year.

1. ESTONIA - 365 Days - Birgit Oigemeel
2. PORTUGAL - Senhora do mar - Vânia Fernandes
3. GERMANY - Hinterm Ozean - Caroline Fortenbacher
4. ESTONIA - Ice-Cold Story - Iiris Vesik
5. DENMARK - Until We're Satisfied - Kendra-Lou

:-[

Only one actually qualified for the ESC.  Close to the top 5 were Cinema Bizarre (Germany - not a great performance), Euroband (Iceland), Sergey Lazarev (Russia) & Coral (Spain)

I agree about Caravaggio, that was much better than Vodka.

For the UK, I would have loved 'It's You' by The Revelations, or '(You Make Me)Woo!' by Michelle Gayle.
