BJSC 100

Loop
'Maybe I'm a Liar'



Jayrusalem returns (again)! We're back to celebrate the 100th BuzzJack Song Contest. cheer.gif


Our entry is 'Maybe I'm a Liar', an electro-pop song by the London based singer-songwriter Loop. It's produced by Xenomania's Toby Scott, who is responsible for writing/producing some massive pop songs from the likes of Girls Aloud and The Saturdays.

Loop: "Maybe I'm a Liar is about that one boy you always say you're done with, but always end up going back to - and the stick you get from your friends about it! I think it's pretty relatable cos most of us girls have got into this cycle with certain kinds of guys!"


(Given that I'm such a huge lover of pop music, it's probably surprising that very few of the Jayrusalem entries are pure pop songs - so I'm happy to have found one to send for this celebratory contest!) wub.gif


Listen here:



We hope you enjoy our entry. Good luck to all the participating countries!

BJSC 123

The Perfect Kiss
'Indebted to You'



I last participated in BJSC back in October 2017. I hadn't anticipated on ever returning, but I guess you can never say never! Rob suggested that I should take part, and I figured it would give me something fun to do during lockdown.

I heard this song used in the background of an episode of ELITE, and it was the first song I thought of when thinking about what I should send for my comeback. The Perfect Kiss is a project led by Joe Moore (musician, producer, songwriter) with vocals by Holly Vanags - both artists are British. The Perfect Kiss is influenced by 80s synth-pop and disco.

I've no idea whether my return will be a one-time thing or if I'll be back for more beyond this contest, but let's see how it goes. cool2.gif My song is included in Semi Final 1!

The last time a final included Jayrusalem was in November 2015, the 80th contest. ohmy.gif Granted I have only sent three other songs between that contest and this one, but still, it's been a long time! The Perfect Kiss - Indebted to You is Jayrusalem's 11th qualifying song out of 18 entries.

Didn't realise it was 2015 since we last had you in the final! ohmy.gif or that you've had so few entries in total! I am a little surprised this song has made it but I do like it and wish it luck for the final! It's a cute one.

Treat Me Like Fire, Somebody and Kisses From The Sky are all incredible entries! heart.gif

Thank you Klumzee! wub.gif The first two there are my personal 2 favourites! I seem to remember Kisses from the Sky had some positive reception from some members who were in the opposite semi to the one I was in! laugh.gif

I tried to enter it the next contest, not realising it had DNQ'd in the previous contest as I was in the other semi! laugh.gif Still can't believe it and I think its a great entry and something I would've thought appealed to the BJSC crowd. Guess nothing is ever a safe entry!

I completely forgot to reply to this, I'm glad you love it that much! A pity you weren't on BuzzJack back then to throw some points my way! kink.gif laugh.gif It's one of my big dance faves from the 2010s too. wub.gif

BJSC 124

Donna Missal
'Hurt By You'



Jayrusalem's latest entry is 'Hurt By You', by American singer-songwriter Donna Missal!

'Hurt By You' is an alt-pop song, with a country edge to it. Lyrically it's an empowering song about letting go of a toxic relationship and attempting to achieve emotional distance from it.

“Letting someone go doesn’t have to signify loss and pain exclusively. There can be wide open space on the other side of that to feel autonomy, freedom, and room to grow. It doesn’t have to suck! And you don’t have to be hurt by change.” - Donna Missal

I love Donna's vocals on this song, she sounds raspy, powerful and defiant. heart.gif

This is the most passionate I've felt about one of my entries since Myzica 'Wait Just a Minute' five years ago, and it's fast become of my favourite songs of the year. Many thanks to Joseph who introduced me to this heartfelt bop! wub.gif



Only give me love when I'm giving it back
But you say you'll never be my friend
Always on the train, never on the track
So I'm jumping before the crash
And I know you're just trying to scare me
But you lost all of your effect
You can bark like a dog, baring your teeth
But I'm never going back again
No, I'm never going back again

Babe, it's true
I'm in love with what we were
But not with you
What's left to prove?
Tried so many damn times to cut you loose
Now I'm way too far away to be hurt by you

You call to say you're better, I know better than that
You're just looking for some sympathy
It's not about you or somebody new
This time it's about me
And I know you're gonna say I'm selfish
And I know you're gonna think it's mean
But you show up at my house in the middle of the night
Saying I'm the one that's crazy
Stop trying to debase me

Sorry if I gave the impression
That I'm trying to fix what we broke
Maybe we lay down our weapons
And make peace with letting go
'Cause babe it's true
I'm in love with what we were
But not with you

Written By: Donna Missal, Andrew Wells & Anthony Rossomando

wub.gif Really pleased that you like it, Jack!

I first heard Fletcher - Forever last month and it's such a bop, best of luck in the final!

wub.gif it's an amazing song! I discovered it when she supported Lewis Capaldi on tour a couple of months ago, she was a brilliant performer too. Alec Benjamin was also scheduled to perform but had to fly home to the US before corona travel restrictions came in - Donna completely turned around my disappointment at not seeing Alec! heart.gif
