    I'm going purely on eye candy for my choice :D

    Was I the only one who got a Country I was happy with? :pac:

    Initially I wasn't too sure but then I had a quick search and the first act I came across had some pretty awesome stuff so it was a case of choosing which song I preferred

    I would have loved Belgium. One of my favourite songs is about Belgium (strange and all as that sentence reads!)

    Whoever got England has almost too much to work with I'd say. Ditto Scotland. But not so much Wales despite their reputation for singing.

    Finland would be great craic. Look what they've done to the Eurovision.

    I remember taking the Trans-Siberian a few years back and one of Russia's biggest metal bands were on the train. Caused quite a stir! Digging through their back catalogue would be fun.

    (I may or may not have gotten one of the above countries :) )

    Nope, I got an excellent country too.

    I thought it would be tough narrowing it down but I know the song I want to submit....I just need them to put the live performance up as it's a million times better than the recording.

    Really wanted to get Finland though......

    Just popping back in to say thanks for the submissions so far. Not a lot of time on boards this week. BK I'd say we can have another 1.5 weeks to close or when everyone gets their submissions in, whichever comes first

    I put on a youtube playlist of "best songs from XXXX" earlier. It was all generic, insipid dirge :(
    I'll have to dig a little deeper...
    My digging has finally paid off :D

    I've found an album that sounds great on first listen, from a band with five more in the back catalogue, in a subgenre I'd never heard of but think I'll love. I've got a serious rabbithole to go down now!

    Thanks for running this fixxxer, I'd never have found my way here by myself. If you haven't heard from me in a few days, send help :p

    I tend to avoid Walrus's's's's as Boardsies have notoriously bad taste in music.

    Alas, on this occasion, my bit of music is objectively the best.

    It is a catch 22 situation: you realise that Boardsies have terrible taste in music, you have entered an excellent piece of music and yet you still expect to win :confused::p:D

    I'm guessing there might be a bit of europop, I went the other way :D
