BJSC 110: Daoko - Haikei-Goodbye-Sayonara



Feeling like I'll break,
But I never do
Feeling like I'll overflow,
But I never even get close
I'm such a fool
I'll never amount to much of anything

They're just magic words, nothing more
It'd be foolish to think you're gonna save me
They're just magic words, nothing more
But that's what I was relying on

Dear, Goodbye farewell
I killed who I was until yesterday
Dear, Goodbye farewell
A new morning will arrive for me





For the last contest of this year I've decided to enter the Japanese artist Daoko with the song "Haikei-Goodbye-Sayonara" ~
I don't really know what to expect, but hopefully some people find this enjoyable happy.gif

I've been enjoying Daoko a lot recently. Especially that really high-viewed song for the Fireworks film. This is also really lovely, I'm really pleased to find something else great from her! Good stuff.

BJSC 111: Anna von Hausswolff - The Mysterious Vanishing of Electra


You search through the forest and the bottomless sea
And you cry
Push the trees, push the sky, push the air aside

You look at their faces and their meaningless loss
And you cry
Who is she, who is she, who is she to say goodbye




After sending a string of twelve songs in foreign languages - with a few English words here and there - we (finally?) send a song fully in English. "The Mysterious Vanishing of Electra" is sung by the Swedish artist Anna von Hausswolff who began her career in 2010 I think. The song itself is needless to say something of an experience and is nothing like something I have sent before to this contest ~

*Really, really late response* laugh.gif
Im happy that you enjoyed the song Iz~ Thought you might know her from before, she is not exactly completely unknown in Japan if I have understood correctly.

BJSC 112: Pillar Point - Dove


All the songs that I could sing
To show you that I feel this
Would they change a thing?
No matter which way this wind blows
You know I'm coming home

It's no road that I'd run without a curve
So baby would you come in close at the turn
And let a different love song pass your lips
Or we might suffer shipwreck with the ship

Without love
You're just a stupefied dove




We are going american this time with the band Pillar Point and their song "Dove". The music video was filmed in in the capital of Colombia, Bogotá. The dancer in the video is named Kia LaBeija the current mother of the house of LaBeija which is based in New York.

This is what she had to say about her dancing in the music video:
QUOTE
BHV: In the video, did you have a routine, or were you freestylin’?

Kia: Everything in Dove was freestyle. There was no choreography, just improvised moves. If you can really vogue, you can vogue to anything – not thinking about choreography, just about interpreting the music, telling your story, and dancing with your heart. A lot of people can take voguing classes and get the moves down, but many of them can’t actually vogue. Class is meant to teach you the elements, the outline, but YOU have to write the essay, or else you are plagiarizing.

BJSC 113: Hawa Boussim - Koregore




A little song from Burkina Faso that I discovered while I was travelling in Kenya a few months ago. Took me a long time to find the song, but it was definitely worth it happy.gif

So glad that you did manage to reconfirm on time because this is an absolute bop. wub.gif (also almost certainly the first song I've ever heard by a Burkinabé artist, I stan)

^ Yay, glad you like the song Bré! In hindsight i'm kinda happy that i ended up getting vetoed tongue.gif it allowed this song to grow more on me, needless to say i'm going to be a tiny bit disappointed if I end up not qualifying whistle.gif

Veto: Sunmi - Noir


I feel so high
Everything goes blurry one two three
Now I’m blind
I don’t know why
I know what it is
even if I don’t see it
bad ending

We are in noir
There’s nothing more with you
We are in noir
Now let go of me





BJSC 114: Merk & Kremont - Sad Story (Out Of Luck)


And now he's locked away
21 years of age
How many lives will go to waste?
As far as graves
Until I see some f***ing change
Oh, and I don't even know how
We continue to
Fight one another now...

Now he don't talk too much, talk too much
He's probably given up, given up
I think he's had enough, had enough
Cause he ran out of luck, out of luck




… And we got vetoed for the second time in a row laugh.gif

Anyway our entry for this edition, replacing Sunmi, is the Italian DJ and producer duo Merk & Kremont and a vocalist named Ady Suleiman.

BJSC 115: Emma Blackery - Third Eye


Can't believe that I was so blind
I won't have you messing with my mind
'Cause I'm looking at you with my third eye, my third eye
And you think that you're invincible
But you're not the one who's in control
'Cause you don't know what the future holds
You'll be out in the cold

And so you twist, insist, and turn it around
And this is it, you're like a machine always on and on, repeating
So what do you want from me?
And tell me how can you break my trust if you never had it?
But you'll do what you must, becomin' a habit
And on and on repeating
So what do you want from me, what do you want from me?




I didn't get vetoed this time (yay)
This is a bop
From her album Villains
Couldn't chose between this and "Villains Pt.2"
So, random.org made that choice for me (yay)
I'm tired.

Your Best Of: Ágy - Arvedávgi


Her color is dark grey
"This is who I am", she says
"I've had it all,
Built up a wall - for protection.
Colors are hard to find
I've almost given up
This is my one last call to the sky"




Result: 15/39 (119 points)


~*******~


Pride II: Aquilo - Calling Me


A sudden thought of disbelief
Clouds my every conscience
But how do we seek refuge here?
I panic a bit to find out that
This is all I've got
I panic a bit to find out that
This is all I need




Result: 20/29 (38 points)

Thrilled to have archieved my first top 10 result this year, huge thanks to everyone that voted for "The Other Promise" in the final!
In other news, Lotunia has had their most successful year until now. We have somehow managed to qualify for every single final, some being more surprising then others - like Anna von Hausswolff, Hawa Boussim, Hishigdalai and Pillar Point. Of course, this can all change with one of the three songs I have lined up for the rest of the year ~

Your entry this time was beautiful wub.gif didn't quite realise that I was the only person to give it an 18 ohmy.gif but yeah, I'm a sucker for a piano instrumental.

Congrats on the top 10 position <3
