Re: The TF Pick The Best Song Game – Game 4 - Nominate your song by 27th December

Japanese flag = politely self-deprecating about their chances :)

Wouldn't surprise me to see one or both of you do well.
Japan's musical legacy is a very good one. Japan has gifted us a lot of extremely fun and innovative musicians. There are numerous cool compliations of sixties garage bands, psychedelic bands and girlgroups from the sixties and the Mops particularly made a lot of fine stuff back then. More recently they have given us, Kahimi Karie, Cornelius, The Boredoms, Shonen Knife, Pizzicato Five, OOIOO, Seagull Screaming Kiss Her Kiss Her & Yoshihide Otomo. Those are just some that have made an impression on me but they have pretty thriving scenes in a wide ranges of genres.

I also have for a long time regarded the Japanese as having the best musical instincts of any nation.

I don't think either of those posters are really Japanese :eek:h:.

Anyway for this edition I've chosen something simple and fun. In my mind it's very appealing, but who knows :p.

:lol:

I was totally honest. My song probably will be the only song in a different language. Therefore I don't think it will do well. I don't mind though. I participated in this contest just for fun anyway.



My song is sung by the real version of this amazing team. :cool:

^ The songs in different languages in the past couple of games (Bible and Paixao) have both got votes from me incidentally :D.

Liked the eighties flavour of Paixao, but didn't enjoy the chorus that much. Still it reminded me pleasantly of a lot of eighties bands.

I think it's great to pick a song that's not sung in English. Part of the fun in this game is the diversity of music I think:). I'd like to pick a Chinese song in one of the future games but it's a tough call since our music industry is pretty much a mess right now:( Thx for the inspiration anyway;)

Agree. There are a few Japanese and Brazilian songs I want to enter in the future and literally dozens upon dozens of 1960s French pop which I'd love to enter as well. Yeah, and the occasional Spanish, Finnish, Czech, Hungarian and Polish song too. :)

I haven't thought of submitting a Spanish song yet cause it would be too obvious that it was me who sent and I love surprises :p
Anyway, I mostly listen to music in English :lol:

One of the songs I considered for this game was actually a Spanish one. With a big language like that, it shouldn't be as obvious as, say, somebody nominating a Norwegian-language one... we do actually have a song by a Norwegian band in game three, but they sing in English - and it was not me nominating them.

I don't think so , there's quite a few international artists like Shakira,Xtina,Nelly Furtado and J.Lo that have released Latin album and some sell really well.

I can mention here that one category I have considered requesting for a later game, in the unlikely event I should win one, would be songs with non-English lyrics. Any other language would do :)
