Re: Canada 🍁WV103

I have to admit that coming back to Canada has brought me a ton of success, out of 5 finals I have 4 top 10s! Thank you all so much for the support you guys you've given me thus far!

As for this edition, I'm very happy a song that is very near and dear to me won. I also did what I couldn't do in my first go-around with Canada: bring a song from the 80s into the final. But to get 7th place in a tough grand final is a very big achievement. So thank you to the following for the points:

And in the semi...

Re: Canada 🍁WV103

A little hint for our entry in 103: it is early 21st century indie-rock. That genre seems to have served Team Canada well in the past, so why not try it again

Sam Roberts - Brother Down


Video


Lyrics
One life to live but we're doing it wrong
You see, got my brother down cause it's nothing to me
Everyone's saying that it's wrong to cheat
But there's no other way to get my life on easy street

Someone else telling you what you're living for
Been knocking you down, now you're looking for more
The only sound you hear is a closing door
Been looking for peace but they're bringing you war
Rich man's crying cause his money's time
And poor man's smiling cause he knows he ain't blind
There's a man over there says he's tougher than me
But i got eyes that can see through fantasy

I think my life is passing me by
I think my life is passing me by

Take it all back cause it don't mean nothing
If you give it away and you're looking for something back
Wake up every morning when there's nothing there
No reason to die but no reason to care

Someone else telling you what you're living for
Been knocking you down now you're looking for more
The only sound you hear is a closing door
Been looking for peace but they're bringing you war
One life to live but we're doing it wrong
You see, got my brother down cause it's nothing to me
Rich man's crying cause his money's time
Poor man's smiling cause he knows he ain't blind

I think my life is passing me by
I think my life is passing me by

Re: Canada 🍁WV104

Our last entry didn't go well as we hoped it would, but no regrets. Thank you to those that voted in the semi

For WV 104, we're going with a female artist with a song released in the mid 1990s. It is on a compilation album of female artists that I own, and it really helped my Monday night bus rides home from university in my first year go by a little easier (I had the cassette version back then, I have the CD now)

Chantal Kreviazuk - Surrounded


Video


Lyrics
I was there
When you shone as bright as Bethlehem from afar
I was there
When you were young and strong and perverted
And everything that makes a young man a star
Oh, you were a star

I was there
And I swear to God and on my mother's grave
On everything I have or ever will embrace
I was there
And I saw it with my own two eyes

And now it's all around me, it's all around me
I'm surrounded
And now it's all around me, it's all around me
You surround me like a circle

Do do do do do do

I was there
Come on, tell me I wasn't worth stickin' it out for
Well, I was there
And I know I was worth it, 'cause if I wasn't worth it
That makes me worse off than you are

It's all around me, it's all around me
I'm surrounded
You know it's all around me, it's all around me
You surround me like a circle

But don't you lose sight of me now
Don't you lose sight of me now

Do do do do do do do
Don't lose sight of me now

'Cause I was there
When they dropped the bomb
You know I remember the bomb
And I still hear the bomb
And I still fight the bomb
You know I still fear the bomb
You know I still hate the bomb
Sometimes I still get the call

So don't you lose sight of me now
Don't you lose sight of me now

You know you're all around me, you're all around me
(Don't you lose )
I'm surrounded
(Sight of me now)
You know you're all me, you're all around me
(Don't you lose )
I'm surrounded
(Sight of me now)
You know you're all around me, you're all around me
(Don't you lose )
I'm surrounded
(Sight of me now)
Now it's all around me, you're all around me
You surround me like a circle

I'm surrounded, oh

Ah ah, like a circle around me

La la la la la la la la

All around me now

Oh

Re: Canada 🍁WV105

Well, that didn't go well. It's hard to finish dead last in a semi, especially when it was a super-strong one. Though I'm disappointed, I have no regrets on sending Chantal's song at all

WV105... I've discovered a song that was released only a day ago. It's a style out of my comfort zone, but hopefully it will go over well with some of you guys

Re: Canada 🍁Taking a break, will return in WV107

Hey guys!

First of all, thank you to those who supported Cassiøpeia in the semi, especially Switzerland for the 10 points. I really wanted to try something outside my comfort zone, so yeah I'm a little disappointed that it didn't turn out as well as I hoped. Bottom 6 for two straight editions is not a really pleasurable experience, especially when you're in a really tough semi

That being said, I'm feeling a little burned out as of late. Too many late nights, too many things going on in real life, so I have decided to skip WV106 and take a 1-edition break to recharge my batteries. I think I really need this, and I hope this will give me a chance to come back in a better frame of mind and get my confidence back

So I will give you my plans for WV107. I have decided on a national final. But not just any national final, I will be bringing back a format that has worked so well for me in the past: Battle of the Decades 3. So rest assured that even though I will be taking a break, I will be working hard to find 5 great songs from across the 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s and 00s-10s to participate in this NF

I love you guys and I truly appreciate all the support you've given me thus far. See you on the other side!

Steph (Duchess of Canada)

Re: Canada 🍁Taking a break, will return in WV107

National Final Update

Things are progressing nicely, I have found 3 songs for the NF representing the 60s, 70s and 90s. I am close to finding the song for the 80s, and am working on the 00-10 entry as well as an opening song. More info when it becomes available!

Re: Canada 🍁WV 108

A big thank you again to everyone who supported my entry this edition, I truly think that 1-edition break did me some good! I never won a semi when I was with Switzerland, but since I took over Canada I've won it 3 times. It was hard to be so close to a podium, but top 5 is a win in my book

As promised, I will be sending one of the songs that tied for second in my NF as my next entry. Which one will it be?
