    I put on a youtube playlist of "best songs from XXXX in 2021" earlier. It was all generic, insipid dirge :(
    I'll have to dig a little deeper...

    I genuinely had to check my calendar there to check I hadn't made a mistake. Old age is getting to me :p




  • Wait, does the song have to have been released in 2020? or can it be from any year?

    Year doesn't matter, Euro 2020 just gave me a topical point of reference to base the framework of the not really rules but definitely guidelines around.

    Oops - sorry your the confusion. I was just looking for new music from my country, so found a 2021 playlist. Didn't mean to imply it was part of the game

    ... by this I mean that were we just looking for a classic, amazing song that we all love, I would be a sure winner. But looking for something new/obscure... less confident in the W.

    But.....but...I havent submitted it yet???? :P




  • Only seen this now, fire up the randomiser and send one on, please :)

    Edit: If there's a space available




  • Jaysus, the feckin state of my country's music :eek:

    wasn't expecting that at all.


    I've one song I like, but the rest of the stuff from the artist is shyte.

    Another song I found I'm a bit meh with it, but I think other people might like it.


    All in all, not going very well for me here :(




  • I've had to go with a novelty song.

    I suspect that's a bit chancey...




  • I had a "difficult" country too.
    There was a very famous option - but I decided to go with something less known.

    I like the concept of this walrus very much. An opportunity to discover obscure artists from countries like Slovakia, Croatia and North Macedonia :D




  • Or a song about Slovakia, North Macedonia, etc - though there can't be many of them!

    mine didn't even seem like it would be a difficult country.

    maybe I'm not looking in the right places :pac:

    If I can't find a decent native song from my country, there is one obvious very well known song that I could throw in, but I don't think it will score very well.

  • I've found a few from my country I actually quite like, but none of them scream "Walrus winner" to me.




  • OK, some people are taking this far more serious than I was. I'm worried now! :eek:

    It's fine, you'll definitely finish ahead of me even if it was a Peruvian Flute Band :pac:




  • OK, now we've got a challenge :) Spice things up at the wrong end.

    I just looked back at fixXxer's posts and found a Nicki Minaj recommendation in a previous Walrus. I'm not sure we're going to see eye-to-eye musically! :D

    Yeah I expected more from my country, I have so far heard 2 decent songs and about 20 that were painfully bad. I was rooting for them in the football but after listening to their music I kinda hope they fail




  • I'm the same. I was really happy with my pick. They have a couple of great bands but I was hoping to avoid the obvious, might not be able to though

    That said, it's hard to search. I'm sure I played a YouTube playlist if "new Irish music" I probably wouldn't like most




  • I know one song from my country (it is possible I know more and don't realise it :D), not counting eurovision entries ;) I started looking and ended up on a dance music playlist unintentionally... It was all very meh :pac:




  • I've listened to some amount of absolute ****e this week for this so I'm going to plump for the most famous one, it's actually a great song and really liked it.. wanted something more obscure but the bloody country I got are useless




  • This competition isn't doing much for international diplomacy :D
