My Favourites Of The Eurovision Song Contest

Hi!:)

Since it’s Eurovision Song Content week right now, I thought I’d do a blog post on my favourite songs from it. ESC is a song contest in Europe and as of last year in Australia as well, where each country has a representative performer, and they compete for the best song of the year. The semi-finals are already over, and the final is on Saturday, which I’m very excited about.

My absolute favourites are Hungary and France this year, but I have heard some other nice songs as well. So here you go, here are the countries I’m rooting for this Saturday, and obviously these are not in any particular order.

  1. Hungary
  2. Cyprus
  3. The Netherlands
  4. UK
  5. France
  6. Azerbaijan
  7. Malta
  8. Israel
  9. Australia

But I also like Croatia, Latvia, Serbia, Lithuania, Spain, Bulgaria and Belgium.

Which songs do you like the most? Let me know in the comments below! Have a great day! See you soon! :)

Songs Of The Month – February

Hi! :)

There’s less than a week left of February, so I’m here with the list of songs I listened to the most this month. February was the time when I really got into the band X Ambassadors and I’m so glad I did! I heard some of their songs before in commercials, but I never knew those were theirs, so I was very surprised to hear those familiar songs again – now knowing they created them. One song in paricular, called Gorgeous became my absolute favourite this month, especially the Upstate Sessions version. I also started to listen to Lose It by Oh Wonder again after them releasing a music video for it recently. As I did a presentation of the movie Paper Towns earlier this month, I was jamming to the whole movie soundtrack for hours (and I love all the tunes on it). Lost It To Trying gives a magical feeling and that’s why I like it so much. I included two Hungarian Eurovision songs competing this year (results will be out tomorrow). The two that I’m rooting for are the songs by Freddie and Petruska. I really hope one of them wins and gets to represent Hungary in the Eurovision. Check those songs out, I think they’re amazing! Here’s the list, but as usual, the songs are not in any particular order.

  1. We Don’t Talk Anymore – Charlie Puth ft. Selena Gomez
  2. Lose It – Oh Wonder
  3. Renegades – X Ambassadors
  4. Gorgeous – X Ambassadors (Upstate Sessions)
  5. Lost It To Trying – Son Lux
  6. Unsteady – X Ambassadors
  7. Ready For You – Years & Years (Acoustic)
  8. Pioneer – Freddie
  9. Trouble In My Mind – Petruska
  10. Stressed Out – twenty one pilots

What are some of your favourite songs of February? Let me know in the comments below or tweet me, I’d love to know! Have a lovely day! See you soon! :)

Songs Of The Month – May

Hi! :)

It’s almost June, so I’m here with another songs of the month post. I’m excited for next month, but I have lots of chapter tests left, so I have to study loads for those. But I have only two weeks left, then almost a three-month summer break. This month I had some songs that I listened to non-stop, and there were songs that I love, but didn’t listen to that much. But I still managed to create a list of 10 songs for you. There are some older songs, too, which I was obsessed with this month. Also, the language of the new Maroon 5 song really bothers me, I actually like the clean version better, but I could not find it anywhere in studio quality. I included two of my favourite Eurovision songs, and I’d like to mention that I’m so glad that Sweden won! Such an amazing, catchy tune. (The songs are not in any particular order):

1. Crazy Youngsters – Ester Dean (Pitch Perfect 2)

2. This Summer’s Gonna Hurt Like A Motherf****r – Maroon 5

3. Flashlight – Jessie J

4. Love Is An Open Door – Frozen

5. Bright – Ecosmith Continue reading Songs Of The Month – May

Pitch Perfect 2 and Eurovision Song Contest

Hi! :)

I couldn’t write a new post yesterday, because we didn’t have internet, which was very annoying. But I’m here today with some of my random thoughts.

Firstly, I went to the premiere of Pitch Perfect 2, which I had been waiting for since the film was announced. It was the first time that I went alone to the cinema, which was a bit weird, but great at the same time. In my opinion the film was even better, than the first one. As you may or may not know, Pitch Perfect is my favourite film, so it was a huge relief that the second film was amazing as well. Pentatonix were also in the movie, which I was so excited about, even if they were on screen for about a minute. I loved every second of this movie, and I can’t wait to watch it in English, too, because in the cinema it was only available in Hungarian. I highly recommend this film to you, if you can, go and watch it! It was so funny, I was laughing almost the whole way through. I love it.

Eurovision 2015

Hi! :)

I watch the Eurovision Song Contest every year. It is a song competition between European countries. It is around spring time every single year, and the contest for choosing the Hungarian participant has already began. I don’t want to write a whole novel about this song contest, you can look it up somewhere if you’re interested in it. Hungary has 30 contestants this year, and I thought that I would tell you my opinion about the songs. I won’t go into lots of details, basically I’ll just tell you what song I like of all of them, because I’m not an expert.

You can listen to the studio versions of the songs by clicking here.

You will be able to listen to the songs live and also to see the performances by clicking on these links. (The first link only includes 10 live performances):
