FSC #125-July 2019: The Cayman Islands
j5ROyClh.png


Good evening and welcome to FSC 125, in the beautiful Cayman Islands! xheart We gather here after the United Kingdom's stunning victory in FSC 124. The Cayman Islands are a British Overseas territory located in the Caribbean Sea. The Cayman Islands comprise of three main islands. The largest island is Grand Cayman which is home to the region’s capital city, George Town. This city is not only home to the government of the Cayman islands but a myriad of beautiful resorts, beaches and tourist attractions like the historic George Town harbour. George Town is proud to be the host of FSC 125.

The smaller cayman islands, named Brac and Little Cayman, are world renowned for their scuba and snorkelling oppurtunities. Brac Cayman island features a large number of underwater caves that are extremely popular with divers. Cayman Brac is also home to one of the only sunken Soviet Warships in the western hemisphere. Originally, built by the Soviet Union for the Cuban navy, the ship was bought by the Cayman government in 1996 and has remained a popular diving site ever since. Little Cayman islands plays host to the territories annual heritage and Mardi Gras festival, which is a chance for the islands to let loose and party!

The Cayman Islands remained largely uninhabited until the 17th century when a variety of settlers from various backgrounds made their home on the islands, including pirates, shipwrecked sailors, and deserters from Oliver Cromwell's army in Jamaica. England gained formal control of the Cayman Islands in 1670, and it has a remained a territory of the United Kingdom ever since. The Cayman Islands historically has been a tax-exempt destination. The government of the Cayman Islands has always relied on indirect and not direct taxes. The territory has never levied income tax, capital gains tax, or any wealth tax, making them a popular tax haven. Several international businesses and wealthy individuals take advantage of this tax exempt status, bringing large wealth to the islands. The Cayman islands rely on the United Kingdom to handle its foreign affairs and has never been the centre of any international disputes.

Our venue tonight is the KAABOO Cayman festival. This prestigious music festival bills itself as a music festival that "was created by music lovers for music lovers." The 2-day music festival is designed to appeal to "all five senses" through "world-class music, inspiring contemporary art, hilarious comedy, gourmet cuisine, craft libations and personal indulgences." Several music critics have likened the festival to being the "polar opposite" of the disastrous Fyre Festival, who's poor mismanagement has landed it a place in pop culture infamy. The 2019 festival was headlined by acts like Grammy award winner Bryan Adams, who spent 72 weeks in the top 20 billboard charts. KAABOO also was headlined by the Chainsmokers who won a Grammy in 2017 for their hit single "Don't Let Me Down." This year, KAABOO is also headlined by our iconic FSC acts.

Re: FSC #125 -July 2019: The Show! [George Town, the Cayman Islands]

Oh I love this, Jordan. It's how I envisioned it and you used some great pictures (besides the ones I sent ofc). The Cayman Islands truly are a paradise and I'm thrilled we get to have an FSC summer edition in the Caribbean. I already know a couple of the songs there so this looks like it might be a hot edition, music wise and temperature wise. xheat

For the :uk: song, I dont usually post anything but this is a song introduced to me by a friend who sent it to another contest. I loved it then, but its only grown on me more since. I'm glad that Gary agreed and we decided to send it. For those that dont know, in her song Grace sings about her absent father who was never there for her in her childhood. which is something I, myself and many others (perhaps some of you?) Can relate to on a personal level. I think it's a powerful song and you can really feel it through the lyrics and understand the story. I hope you enjoy it. xheart

I'm glad I can already part of this. Amazing entries! I enjoyed listening to them at the LL session.
Can't wait to have access to the private forum and discussing the songs with the other German members and coming up with a ranking.

The Cayman Islands will be a good host. When I was there a few years ago, I had a blast. Beautiful place.

Dua Lipa as a host is a plus xD

Having both Lay Your Weapons Down and Rane in the same edition is a crime. :(

Re: FSC #125 -July 2019: The Show! [George Town- the Cayman Islands, United Kingdom]

:no: For July 2019 Norway goes for something different/diverse again from last months, a catchy Scandipop summer-banger performed in Swedish language! :D It is the first time in Norway’s 10 year FSC-history that we enter a song in Swedish, so it is unique in that regard. As a lover of Melodifest-ivalen of many years (especially what I consider the 'golden years' 2003-2009) it pleases me much for once to be able to share a song for Norway in the FSC which fits that style.

Performer of the new and original song “Fuck you, jag älskar dig” is a New artist from Norway in the FSC, the Norwegian pop-artist Kamferdrops, alias Heidi Musum from Oslo, who is best known for singing her songs in Swedish (her trademark). For more information and promotion of the entry (includ-ing lyrics in Swedish with a translation into English) please check out the FSC Norway-thread and/or the FSC Promotions-thread! Hope you’ll enjoy it!

Nice Show [MENTION=15333]JChan[/MENTION] - and Good luck to all entries this 'hot' summer-month of July!

IMPORTANT: Final FSC Mod team Decision: :ch: Switzerland - Alle Farben & Ilira - Fading

This entry by Switzerland in FSC #125 July has been under review now in the Evaluation Period with regards to eligibility. The FSC Mod team has discussed this case in some detail and looked at all the facts/info at hand and also been in contact with the Swiss HOJ for clarification / information, and we have now made a final decision.

The FSC Rules have a section, Entries - 10. Songs - d. Samples which describe the FSC Sampling Rules.

We have considered the matter with a view to these rules and have come to a conclusion that the Swiss song is in violation of the rules regarding sampling, since the entry has documented sampling (in chorus) of an older song (ref. Skott - 'Porcelain’).


Conclusion: The Swiss entry is in violation of the FSC Rules and is, sadly, disqualified.

It will be replaced in the FSC July-edition by the Swiss Back Up-entry (checked and found eligible) which becomes the new entry for Switzerland.


The FSC July Show (Swiss banner) and FSC July MP3-archives will be updated soon.

We wish the new Swiss entry best of luck!

No, sorry. It has been suggested before by others and we have explained why we focus on the current system (FSC Show with videos and MP3 songfiles).
