Totallympics Annual International Song Contest 2018

My dear friends!

 

It has been a pleasure being part of this wonderful contest, which nicely adds another part to our community. Though this was in the beginning only sports lovers forum, it quickly got bigger and kindly accepted also music romantics of all kind. It has been a privilege to be a part of this journey from the very beginning. Just out of curiosity, I wonder, maybe @OlympicIRL or @dcro or someone else knows, how many users share the same experience, being part of TISC in all 10 competitions.

 

This next segment is quick dedication to songs, which represented my country, some were more likeable, others a little less, but they were all warm welcomed, so thanks to all of you, giving at least a point or at least hear for a second or two song, which came  from Slovenia.

And now, ladies and gentlemen, it is time to meet 10th representative for TISC, this time for Annual edition of 2018.

 

BQL are brothers Rok and Anej Piletič, who came to scene at Slovenija ima Talent, our version of Got Talent franchise, but not together (older Rok in 1st and younger Anej in 4th season).

 

Next song is another work of very well known producer Raay (part of Maraaya) and was received as most heard song of Slovenian artist in 2017.  With this song they finished 2nd in EMA 2017, national final for Eurovision Song Contest and won televoting part. Enjoy !

Damn, I forgot how it felt to actually know some of the songs prior to them entering the competition :p I think that ranking might be extremely difficult this year and I propose points to 14 countries to lessen the burden on my heart :d

Good evening ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to the presentation of the Danish song for the TAISC 2018.

Though the Danish jury has more or less been the same all through the years, we have been able to send different artists every time spanning a bunch of different genres. Now we will add another one.

The results haven't always been as we hoped for, but we have kept fighting.

From Kashmir to Sort Sol, we have been proud of all our contestants.

And we are this year as well.

It was hard to pick. 4 very different artists/groups were in the pot. 

A song was selected, but exept for a couple of mediocre live recordings of half the song, it wasn't possible to find it on youtube.

Other songs by the same band were considered, but most of the songs on the shortlist weren't on youtube. But we haven't given up on them. They may be back again, maybe even for the next open contest as more of their older stuff are on youtube. Therefore we decided to let another artist participate.

It comes from a genre that I usually don't listen to, but the latest album from this artist has truly caught my attention.
With a magnificent voice and a fantastic mix of the tough sounds of the metal and the more mystical, folkinspired vokals, we have one of the greatest Danish editions to a musical niche for a long time.

It is therefore my honour to present the song from Denmark...

 

Wait for it...

:DEN Myrkur - Ulvinde :DEN 

 

 

Lyrics:

 

Ja med ondt skal ondt fordrives 
I en svunden krop 
Buret inde som et dyr de lukker aldrig op 
Fanget i en dårekiste, drypper af mit blod 
Mørkets trofaste lakajer lænket til min fod 

Norge Norge Norge 

Solen er gået bort 
I nattens regn og vind 
Min barndoms tunge port 
Låst i mit kolde sind 

Langt ned i de dybe dale 
Der spejler sig i søen 
Det er her at jeg vil leve, det er her at jeg vil dø 
Under flodens askegrene finder jeg min sjæl 
Skyggerne forstenes, lyset slår dem jo ihjel 

Norge Norge Norge 

 

English:

 

Yes, by evil, evil must be fought

in a bygone body

Caged like an animal, they never open up
Caught in a madhouse, dripping my blood

The loyal lackeys of the darknes, chained to my foot

 

Norway Norway Norway

 

The sun has gone away

In the rain and wind of the night

The heavy gate of my childhood

Locked in my cold mind

 

Far down the deep valleys

mirroring in the lake

This is where I wanna live, this is where I wanna die

Under the ash branches of the river I find my soul

The shadows are being petrified, the light is killing them

 

Norway Norway Norway
