Whenever I hate the playlist I know I should get ready for an inevitable flop. Because if someone purposefully select random muzak I know than it means that no good taste is to be found across, and they're not here gonna be able to fall in love with my entry that demands more from a listener just like last week and here.

I knew it would be hard to get into the final with this song. Thanks for the 12s SilverPersian and Laurent Moy!

Sad to see Daniel Balavoine go.

Not my twelve out 😢 @DuaZeepa I am not surprised she didn't qualify but it made for a nice listen.

Happy to have qualified, second in a row now :) even if it's only the third for the last 7/8 or so 😅 especially in 18 song semifinal!

I lost both 12s. That just never happens...at least not to me, dammit. :confused:

I honestly can't remember the last time I lost both 12s but I think one would have to go back years. I'm quite surprised with these results to put it mildly. I think it will take bit of time to digest. I will have plenty to say later no doubt... :ROFLMAO:

Expected result for me.
As I said today, I didn't pick wisely just the first song with various instruments and that's all.
Last with 33 points😂😂😂

i liked the song by the growing concern a lot. BSG usually digs this kind of dreamy 60s pop with female vocalists, so i'm surprised it's out. as i am about joanna newsom, UMO and adam's "baby" not making it.

Gal Costa and Rosalia out...😥

I thought Baby was a sure finalist, great song, Adam! (y)
Same here. It is strange. Tropicalia seems to be a genre that has never caught on in these games. I don't suppose there have been more than around a dozen such entrees over the 300+ games we have had but I can't recall any of them doing terribly well, which is a real shame. Late 60s/ early 70s Brazilian music is pretty magical. Baby is probably the most famous song to come out of the Tropicalia era too. It's a beautiful song. I remember entering the English language Os Mutantes version of the same song a long while back as well, and I as recall that flopped also. It completely baffles me. Wonderful song, wonderful performance, wonderful artists. Ah well......

I would haven given 12 to several other Jambinai songs, but only 8 to this one. At least it wasn't decisive.

I'm most surprised about Cloissoné's ranking.

Maybe I should be happy I wasn't last, but still shameful. I wrote SF2 reviews to compliment my song since I knew other probably wouldn't. It was a fantastic performance that day and a good sound quality recording. Easily more enjoyable than The Cure.

I absolutely adored your selection, Poldo. Best discovery of the game for me for sure, and there was a lot of competition too. Have to say They Might Be Giants are not a band I have given a lot of attention too. Listening to this, I really ought to start now. I found this to be an extremely well written, deftly arranged song with great lyrics and a wonderfully off kilter super original and playful arrangement. It really has everything. Snappy, concise and smart. What's not to like? Awesome selection. (There....I used the word "awesome" in it's modern usage. :D ) I loved this song, Poldo, I am baffled why more people didn't appreciate this little modest delight.

It's not really the kind of music I usually listen to but I was unsure what to send for this theme and decided to go out of my comfort zone a bit. It didn't really pay off result-wise but I'm glad you liked it as well!
