Lyrics
English Lyrics: I was told at 6 years old They'd avoid me if my heart was cold Found it hard to talk and speak my mind They never liked the things that I would like Cause you're told to play but you're not the same As the other kids playing the same game Try to jump on in but they push away so far away I'm not the same no I'm not the same no Years went by I tried and tried My father asked me if today I smiled I said yes I did, but that's a lie Oh I always tell those lies Then you run and hide, hide the break inside Till you realise that the light shines bright Through those oh who've broke inside I'm not the same no I'm not the same no I'm not the same no I'm not the same no Cause you never want to be the kind of person Who can't work it for those ones who can not word it Cause you've been the kind of person who felt this pain Oh yeah I felt this pain So you go and leave the pain and find another way To make yourself another game, maybe one for all to play cause it's not Just me who's not the same, we're not the same We're not the same no We're not the same no We're not the same no We're not the same no

Lyrics
English Lyrics: And I can move on from here How simple: life goes on Humble – that's how I feel Sparking hot flames, holding on. Younger days run so clear Through my mind, replaying my crime Tearing me up, spreading fear Obsession in my own time. What life's taken away, I'm not missing Will I sit back and sigh? A thunder of thoughts, I'm dismissing Too scared to even try… And in time I've always known I'm never in the safety zone I took the fight, but was I right? They were sending me to war… My intention is strong and real Only power steals my will. The illusion of safety's surreal Don't let it go for the kill! What life's taken away, I'm not missing Will I sit back and sigh? A thunder of thoughts, I'm dismissing Too scared to even try… And in time I've always known I'm never in the safety zone I took the fight, but was I right? They were sending me to war… I don't want to take on the pain So, I go seek inner signs, or a calling The more freedom I gain The less real life I'm recalling. And in time I've always known I'm never in the safety zone I took the fight, but was I right? They were sending me to war…

Lyrics
English Lyrics: Dreamt of you last night Woke up You weren't there Five nights in a row Of dreams I'd never share You come without a warning Early in the morning Timing's never been our thing Leaving me with guilt The only souvenir you bring I'm with him and you're a secret treasure He's devotion, you're a guilty pleasure I'm with him and this is real life, honey Guess the joke's no longer funny I'm with him until the death do us part But it doesn't do for this hungry heart I'm with him, but in my frantic head You always come and say Would you run away Would you run away with me Would you run away Would you run away One love is enough That's all you ever get Least that's what they tell you Still, I can't forget Eyes like burning ashes Till the sunlight flashes Can't recall what I've been taught Captivated by the thunderstorm In which I'm caught I'm with him and you're a secret treasure He's devotion, you're a guilty pleasure I'm with him and this is real life, honey Guess the joke's no longer funny I'm with him until the death do us part But it doesn't do for this hungry heart I'm with him, but in my frantic head You always come and say Would you run away Would you run away with me Would you run away Would you run away In this real life there's no way In this real life I have to stay In this real life there's no way In this real life

English Lyrics: I lost my soul Forgot my way There's no mistakes That I've not made Changes hurt And I'm alone But people say 'My, how you've grown' Tried changing jobs Tried changing lovers Changing my furniture Change my bed covers I'd change my heart But there's not a chance So I turn the lights off Where are you now when I miss you? You're sailing around in my peripheral Where are you now? Where are you now? Where are you now, ohhh Where are you now? I'll ring the changes Make a plan I'm small, but mighty Yes, I can I'll build a fortress I'll build a wall I'll be a queen Invincible Tried changing jobs Tried changing lovers Changing my furniture Change my bed covers I'd change my heart But there's not a chance So I turn the lights off Where are you now, when I miss you? You're sailing around in my peripheral Where are you now? Where are you now? Where are you now, ohhh Where are you now? Once again I'm left without control I'm far away, but can you hear me call? Where are you now? Where are you now when I miss you? You're sailing around in my peripheral Where are you now? Where are you now? Where are you now, ohhh Where are you now?

English Lyrics: Lalelala lalaleno Let's go! In the darkness of the woods germinates the night The stars appear in the restless rustle A feminine shadow twirls in the light of a torch Ignoring the wild beasts I dance I steal the fire from their gaze full of lust And turn it into a song to sing in unison She dances with the devil, so what? I dance with the devil, so what? Heat and mud, heat, party and mud The forest vibrates with the dancing spark Its enchanting magic rises up to the tall trees Ignoring the wild beasts I dance I steal the fire from their gaze full of lust And turn it into a song to sing in unison Fearless in the middle of the forest clearing, the spark is dancing Raging souls twirl and twirl around her Fearless in the middle of the forest clearing, the spark is dancing Raging souls twirl and twirl around her Lalalalalalaleno lalelalo Lalalalalalaleno lalelalo Lalalalalalaleno lalelalo Lalalalalalaleno lalelalo I dance with the devil, so what? With the devil I dance She dances with the devil, so what? Lalalalalalaleno lalelalo Lalalalalalaleno lalelalo Lalalalalalaleno lalelalo Lalalalalalaleno lalelalo Fearless in the middle of the forest clearing, the spark is dancing

Lyrics
English Lyrics: Look where we are We used to be the rockstars Who never thought of no harm 'Til this thing we call life stopped gleaming I wish there was a way to go back dreaming Remembering gets so hard When time is moving so fast Wish there was a way to know that we're in The good old days before we all just leave 'em I tried getting rid of the pain I tried to make it go away but it probably won't change Always thinking 'bout my own worries Remember back when we had no worries? Now life just ain't hitting the same I sit and miss and reminisce about innocent old days When I was afraid of nobody Now I'm afraid of being a nobody Don't wanna leave my bed I'll just stay and never get it together 'Cause the voices in my head They keep saying it'll never get better Look where we are We used to be the rockstars Who never thought of no harm 'Til this thing we call life stopped gleaming I wish there was a way to go back dreaming Remembering gets so hard When time is moving so fast Wish there was a way to know that we're in The good old days before we all just leave 'em Sometimes I got this kinda sting that's right inside my chest It's only purpose is convincing me that I'm a mess And even though it's always been an uninvited guest It finds a way in nonetheless Wish I could change my address And you know Just be somebody else for a couple of days Although I'm pretty sure we all feel the same kinda way 'Cause if you think about it Aren't we all set in a place Where we look back at better days And wish they weren't so far away? I wish that I could just go back and be the way I was I wish I'd still not give a damn 'bout how I come across I wish the way I saw myself had never gotten lost In all the worries all the thoughts Overthinking all the parts So exhausted, always caught up inside my doubts and flaws And Imma count them all Somebody catch me, I'm 'bout to fall Yeah I'm 'bout to fall Can we press pause? Or do a restart And be who we are? We used to be the rockstars Who never thought of no harm 'Til this thing we call life stopped gleaming I wish there was a way to go back dreaming Remembering gets so hard When time is moving so fast Wish there was a way to know that we're in The good old days before we all just leave 'em (We used to be the rockstars) Didn't we? (We used to be the rockstars) Didn't we Used to be the rockstars? (We used to be the rockstars) Yeah we used to be the rockstars (We used to be the rockstars) Remembering gets so hard When time is moving so fast Wish there was a way to know that we're in The good old days before we all just leave 'em

Lyrics
English Lyrics: Undercurrents sweep the heart All but covered in deep wounds of sorrow A deep longing burns within Lies in hiding - come what may - Hush hush In the twilight you can see beautiful freedom moving closer As the night sky drowns The day torn by words No one can say - Hush hush The darkest winter, waits for the sun To ease away the longest nights - with light The darkest winter, waits for spring To warm our embraces again Darkness of winter closing in Forcing every single breath they take With growing hope for brighter days The ice and shadows will give way - Hush hush The darkest winter, waits for the sun To ease away the longest nights - with light The darkest winter, waits for spring To warm our embraces again She rises to the sky Embracing her own power And along the way Finding a sense of peace The darkest winter, waits for the sun To ease away the longest nights - with light The darkest winter, waits for spring To warm our embraces again

English Lyrics: Take your mirror off the wall Ain't you getting bored of your reflection I'm tired of dodging all your calls You wanna be the centre of attention I'm getting sick of ya now Stop sending flowers I'll just burn them all You'll cry for hours Always putting me down Well I got news for you You say I'm using you now That's rich When it's coming from you That's rich Cos I got nothing to prove That's rich You think I dress up for you? That's rich BYE BYE fool (ooww!) Used to think I need your help To feel good turns out I do it better Think maybe you should please yourself Cos I am over you, I'll see you never I'm getting sick of ya now Stop sending flowers I'll just burn them all You'll cry for hours Always putting me down Well I got news for you You say I'm using you now That's rich When it's coming from you That's rich Cos I got nothing to prove That's rich You think I dress up for you?

Lyrics
English Lyrics: Baby, sometimes life can bring you down But honey Keep your head up Keep your head up Keep your head up Remember who you are You can call me crazy Or just call my name You can say that i'm stunning, it's not a shame 'Cause I know I am I know I am 'Cause I know I am I know I am I like this attitude I like the game You can say that I'm brave and never the same 'Cause i know I am I know I am 'Cause i know I am I know I am Baby come with me, follow me Tell me if we can take it to the floor I'm the fire, the power And if you're asking who's gonna take it all You know I am You know I am (na,na,na,na) Know I am And no one brings me down I'm gonna take the crown (give it to me now) I'm shameless and I'm spotless and I'm flawless Always take it all 'cause I'm a winner - I don't want less Going for the things I shouldn't baby I'm ferocious Making you do what I want and I'm not even topless Be cautious It's going down for real 2022 let's seal the deal Middle east is the new sex appeal Bam-Bam! this is how it feels Baby come with me, follow me Tell me if we can take it to the floor I'm the fire, the power And if you're asking who's gonna take it all You know I am You know I am (na,na,na,na) Know I am And no one brings me down I'm gonna take the crown Baby, sometimes life can bring you down But I remember to always keep my head up 'Cause no one brings me down I'm gonna take the crown Give it to me now

Lyrics
English Lyrics: I dreamt of flying with you On a diamond bike You told me you've changed, I no longer see the light in your eyes What's your fear? A deep sea where you can't touch Even if sex isn't The escape route from the bottom Come on, don't run away from here Don't leave me like this Naked with chills Sometimes I don't know how to express myself And I'd like to love you, but I'm always wrong And I'd like to steal a pearl sky for you And I would pay to leave, I would also accept a lie And I'd like to love you, but I'm always wrong And I get chills, chills, chills You, who wakes me up in the morning You, who ruins the bed with wine You, who bites my skin With your viper eyes And you, you are the opposite of an angel And you, you are like a boxer on the corner And you run away from here, you leave me like this Naked with chills Sometimes I don't know how to express myself And I'd like to love you, but I'm always wrong And I'd like to steal a pearl sky for you And I would pay to leave, I would also accept a lie And I'd like to love you, but I'm always wrong And I get chills, chills, chills Tell me I'm wrong I live inside a prison I try to stay close to you But I'm sorry if I then mess it all up I can't tell you what I feel, it's my limit For an 'I love you' I mixed drugs and tears This poison that we spit on each other every day I don't want it on anymore You see it, I'm here, On a diamond bike, one among many Naked with chills Sometimes I don't know how to express myself And I'd like to love you, but I'm always wrong And I get chills, chills, chills

English Lyrics: Knock Knock knock At night, it's knocking in my heart Full of longing A spirit, Accompanied by memories. You, it's you, it's you A face seen long ago Why are you laughing like a clown At my glassy eyes? Moments spinning around in my head They're running back to you, A million roses like sentiments Drowning in a sea of clouds Ah… The restless sea is murmuring There are tears in my eyes That's it - he's never coming back He swam through black foam I remember standing in the middle of dunes of Nida And waving to a seagull So far, far away… Moments spinning around in my head They're running back to you, A million roses like sentiments Drowning in the sea of clouds Moments are spinning around in my head They're running back to you, A million roses like sentiments Are drowning in a sea of clouds

Lyrics
English Lyrics: The train's going, just like flying From one country to another It is going but confused: What's the country? Are they fused? Is it old or is it new? Seems like one, but also two Both together and apart Are there two? Or just one part? Hey ho, Let's go! Folklore and Rock 'n' roll. The train's route is East to West Chisinau – Bucharest! Both in that land and in this We dance hora - it's a bliss And in each country within Magic's made with violin When the train gets to a stand Feels like almost the same land Feels like went without a change Home-to-home. What an exchange! Hey ho, Let's go! Folklore and Rock 'n' roll. The train's route is East to West Chisinau – Bucharest! Going quickly, going good Train of our nationhood But it cannot comprehend What's the country? Where's the end? Is it old or is it new? Seems like one, but also two Both together and apart Are there two? Or just one part? Hey ho, Let's go! Folklore and Rock 'n' roll. The train's route is East to West Chisinau – Bucharest!

English Lyrics: What could be the secret of Meghan Markle's healthy hair? What could it be? I think it's all about the deep hydration They say our skin and hair show it all For example – Deep under-eye circles could signal liver troubles The pesky spots around the lips point to an enlarged spleen That's not a good spleen, not a very pretty spleen And the artist ought to be healthy: To be healthy, to be healthy, to be healthy, To be, to be, to be To be healthy, to be healthy, to be healthy, To be, to be, to be How lucky, the existence of the autonomic nervous system No need to control the heart beats The heart beats The heart beats, alone A summer's day, the colours bright, the skirts of mine On my body My dog and I We walk Just the two of us, counting steps The skirt steps around my leg We are walking And that is all And it does not have to get better! the heart beats by itself! I surrender my trust, let it beat by itself! I surrender my trust, let it beat, let me breathe! God grant us health, grant us, grant us health! God grant us health, since there's no Medical insurance for me Now how will they follow me? All in the name of health How will they care for me? All in the name of health The artist is invisible All in the name of health You can't see me, it's magical All in the name of health The artist could be healthy: Be healthy, be healthy, be healthy, be, be, be Be healthy, be healthy, be healthy, be, be, be In a healthy body, in a healthy body In a healthy body, in a healthy body In a healthy body, in a healthy body The body is healthy, and what now Mensinfirm in a healthy body A sad soul in a healthy body Mensdesperate in a healthy body Men frightened in a healthy body Now what shall we do?

English Lyrics: No need to apologise Cuz there's nothing to regret Well this is not what I wanted Guess all the good things come to an end So baby bye bye, wish you the best But most of alI I wish that I could love you less Well maybe you're right, I'll find someone else You say it isn't me but when did that ever help Hold me closer, although you'll leave before the sunrise Might be bleeding but don't you mind I'll be fine Oh it kills me I found the right one at the wrong time But until the sunrise Hold tight Hold tight Maybe it happened to fast I guess that I understand You say that you've never felt this way for anyone and that's why it scares you to death So baby bye bye, know It's for the best Still I can't see how that would ease the pain in my chest Hold me closer, although you'll leave before the sunrise I'll be bleeding but don't you mind I'll be fine Oh it kills me, I found the right one at the wrong time But until the sunrise Could you just hold me tight I know I have to let go but just give me the night Cuz tomorrow will hurt hurt really bad Cuz I'm about to lose the best I ever had Hold me closer, although you'll leave before the sunrise I'll be bleeding but don't you mind I'll be fine Oh it kills me I found the right one at the wrong time But until the sunrise Could you just hold me tight I know I have to let go but just give me the night Can't you see that you found the right one at the wrong time it was just the wrong time Hold tight Hold tight

Lyrics
English Lyrics: In my room, lives a boy who could be blue, And you might never know, oh, oh You think he's cavalier, he would shed more than a crocodile tear, If you'd go, oh Hearts they get broken, God only knows why, And sometimes aeroplanes, fall down from the sky, And mountains they crumble, and rivers they run dry, And oh, boys do cry When night falls, and the moon is all we see, Don't fear the wolf that lives in me, oh, oh You think he's tough enough, he would cry love till the sun comes up, If you go, ooh Hearts they get broken, God only knows why, And sometimes aeroplanes, fall down from the sky, And mountains they crumble, and rivers they run dry, And oh, boys do cry, And how they cry And mountains they crumble, And rivers they run dry, And oh, Boys do cry

Lyrics
English Lyrics: Mother Stephania Stephania mother The field is blooming, but her hair is getting grey Mother, sing me the lullaby I want to hear your dear word She was rocking me as a baby, she gave me a rhythm, And you can't take willpower from me, as I got it from her I think she knew more than King Solomon. I'll always find my way home, even if all roads are destroyed She wouldn't wake me up even if there was a storm outside Or if there was a storm between her and grandma, She trusted me over everyone else Even when she was tired, she just kept rocking me Lully-lully-lullaby Mother Stephania Stephania mother The field is blooming, but her hair is getting grey Mother, sing me the lullaby I want to hear your dear word I'm not a kid anymore, but she will always treat me like one I'm not a kid anymore, but she keeps worrying about me, anytime I'm out Mother, you are still young. If I don't appreciate your kindness, I'm moving towards a dead-end But my love for you has no end. Mother Stephania Stephania mother The field is blooming, but her hair is getting grey Mother, sing me the lullaby I want to hear your dear word

Lyrics
English Lyrics: If I was an astronaut, I'd be floating in mid-air And a broken heart would just belong, to someone else down there I would be the centre of my lonely universe But I'm only human, and I'm crashing down to earth I'm up in space, man! Up in space, man! I've searched around the universe Been down some black holes There's nothing but space, man! And I wanna go home If I was an astronaut, I'd speak to satellites My navigation systems would search for other life But I'd be up here thinking 'bout what I left behind 'Cause I'm only human with the real world on my mind I'm up in space, man! Up in space, man! I've searched around the universe Been down some black holes There's nothing but space, man! And I wanna go home Gravity keeps pulling me down As long as you're on the ground, I'll stick around Stick around I'll stick around I'm up in space, man! Up in space, man! I've searched around the universe Been down some black holes There's nothing but space, man!, no Oh, I'm in the wrong place, man Nothing but, nothing but, nothing but space, man! Nothing but, nothing but, nothing but space, man! I've searched around the universe Been down some black holes There's nothing but space, man... And I wanna go home

Welcome to the E&M Eurovision AFTERPARTY!!!


The ESC is over for another year, but we're not finished just yet... we have a series of general knowledge music related events for you all to enjoy!

There are four two events, two already revealed, two brand new, - nobody entered the last two ;( - for you all to try your hand at! These were all supposed to be announced during the actual ESC but illness got in the way, I'm really sorry about that.

Forget any previous deadlines, you have until Sat 21st May at 10:59 PM (UTC) / 11:59pm (BST)https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/converter.html?iso=20220521T225900&p1=1440 to submit your answers for any of the events that you wish to take part in, as well as to submit your top 10 Eurovision songs from this year's 40 contestants if you haven't already!!!

We will wrap up one week after the ESC Final to make up for the delays in getting these events out. I will also be playing some of the best ever Eurovision tunes at this week's QueUp session on:
Fri 20th May at 6:00 PM (UTC) / 7:00pm (BST)https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/converter.html?iso=20220520T180000&p1=1440
Click on the time above to see when that is in your local time zone! :)

We hope you will all join in the celebration!!!






Welcome to Event #1 - My Big Fat Greek European(ish) Quiz!


Just like the beginning of the ESC semi-finals, we're starting with something that spans all 40 competing countries!

This is a big ol' trivia quiz of 40 questions, 1 question for each country. These topics will span from almost literally anything and we're not expecting anyone to ace the lot but in the spirit of the ESC, we'll use this as an opportunity to get to know our European (+ extras) peers! You'll have until the end of our event (see afterparty post) to tackle these, along with everything else.

Please message your answers to BOTH:
Arcaneum & Starlight


Questions 1-10
Spoiler:


Questions 11-20

Questions 21-30

Questions 31-40

The 2022 E&M ESC Results!!!


Well the votes have been counted and... we have a tie at the top!!!

Under current ESC rules, Finland would be 1st based on the number of jurors voting for them but - since we don't have nearly as many people voting as the real Eurovision Song Contest - we are taking things back to the old days and declaring joint winners!!!

Say hello to the 2022 champions The Rasmus representing Finland with their song Jezebel, and Austria who were represented by LUM!X feat. Pia Maria performing Halo!

The official 2022 champions Ukraine finished a respectable 3rd in our poll, just one point adrift!

Unfortunately nobody joined in for events 3 or 4😔

So with one win apiece, give a loud cheer for our quiz champions: Mewtwolover & Devalue!!!

First of all, y'all are rocking the CSS this year! The posts are looking gorgeous.

I also haven't stopped to see the music videos yet, but here are some "zeroth impressions" from a quick glance at the titles and thumbnails:

- It looks like we're getting more "serious" songs, which feels like kind of a bummer? Like, Eurovision to me is goofy over-the-top songs and choreo, playing it straight is just kinda meh

- Norway, San Marino, Slovenia and UK do seem like they might be taking some risks? Which is fun, and maybe this will be the UK redemption from the flop era that was last year? (I mean, the UK has been flopping for like, forever, but last year was worse still)

- While last year's Netherlands' performance was very soulful and impactful, it realistically never really had a chance since pitching a song about how the European colonialism screwed over the natives, the people that were brought over to be enslaved and their descendants wasn't exactly going to be an easy sell. So I'm interested in seeing if this year they changed to something more pop and easily digestible.

- Looks like the finals will happen one day after my birthday, so here's to hoping whoever I root for win for that delicious birthday present.

Thank you so much Shooting Star!!!

There are still some very fun songs this year, but I won't spoil them and let you enjoy listening for the first time!

Happy birthday for when it comes btw! My birthday is just before the first semi-final so I will also be hoping for a ESC win for my favourites!

Here is your optional sig code and check back for more updates and things to do ;)

Never paid attention to Eurovision before. Is not big into music either (as evidenced by the Olympics sections on it). Watched all the videos anyways. Rankings:

1. Austria (Halo). Blended vocals and instruments the best. Stands a head above every other song.

2. Slovenia (Disko). Describes it as pleasant to listen to. Would have liked more feeling from the singer. Seemed quite flat. Occupies its own tier, regardless.

3. Moldova (Trenulețul). Belongs in a musical. Found it interesting in that sense.

4. Portugal (Saudade, Saudade). Conveyed a tone beyond "sad" with very few words. Deserves some credit for that.

5. Ukraine (Stefania). Purely for the chant. Creates a poignant sound.

6. France (Fulenn). See Ukraine's comment.

Offers no other votes unless necessary. Cares too little about the rest. Would be voting on things like Switzerland's magnificent cardboard armor.

Pretty late with my list, but life kept me busy and then at some point I kinda forgot 😅
Spent last couple days listening to all the songs in alphabetical order. Used my first round to cull the numbers a bit and ended up with 15. Listened to those again for a top 10 and then those again to settle on the order (after the top 3 that is).
I quickly had my number one, the moment the music starts playing in Bulgaria's clip I'm just like 'this gonna be good' :coolcat:
Numbers 2-3-4 were also discovered on their first play. After that things got a bit harder to decide tbh. No instant favorites, but they were still all good imo

In the end I'll be going with this:
1) Bulgaria - Pretty much my fav on the first listen. It just falls in with my preferred music styles I guess =p
2) Australia - Beautiful song imo and it made me cry on the first listen due to the lyrics hitting very close to home. It still made me teary eyed on subsequent listens too.
3) Azerbaijan - I'm usually not big on love related songs, but this one is just beautiful imo.
4) Finland - Some of the lyrics seem a bit nonsensical, but it's just closer to my preferences than others =p

5) Czech Republic - Kinda catchy. Already watched it a bunch of times now =p
6) Malta - Good song, but doesn't really hook me as much as the one above.
7) Poland - I just like the singer's voice. Song isn't that special imo, but it's better than the three below.

The last three I just like for no real particular reason lol Just consider them better than what I didn't put in the top 10.
8) North Macedonia
9) Armenia
10) Montenegro

Actually kinda liked this year's entry from the UK too, but I'd personally put that in 11th so it's just outside the top 10 =p
And on another side note, I kinda like the music from San Marino's song, but the singer's voice just kind of... repels me out of the song? dunno if that makes sense lol

With the final over - I won't spoil it just yet in case any of you are watching on catch-up - we will be closing our own vote in the next day or two so anyone that still wants to rank their top 10 should think about finalising their list!

I was about to post mine but I'm feeling a bit rough to write out a big post so I will do it in the morning!

I hope you all enjoyed the Grand Final this year, it was a wild ride!
