WV 125 ENTRY
?? - ??


Hot totally-not-planned-impromptu '80s Cheesy Power Ballad Duet NF! xheat

I knew I wanted to send one of Tommy Nilsson's duets, but I simply couldn't decide which to go with first as I love them both equally. So I thought I'd let you guys decide! And don't worry, the non-winning song will definitely be sent in the future.

(If you don't like either of the songs, I ask you to please refrain from voting).



Text version:


How to vote:
Send a PM to
Stargazer
You can award each song
:0: :1: :2: :3: :4: :5: :6: :7: :8: :10: :12:


DDL 7th of June at 23:59 CET
Will accept late votes a couple of hours past the deadline

Votes received:
:lond: :ir: :kr: :se: :pe: :sc: :al: :cy: :is:

Hope you enjoy! :D xheat

Thankfully. There was a possible chance of me suing Worldvision for mental trauma but it's just been avoided. :D Even if there was I think i'd be fine after the initial shock and calming down so no worries. xlove
Watch me now replace the video with footage from Stephen King's IT. :twisted: :lol:

[MENTION=12078]AshleyWright[/MENTION] look at this lovely picture
to topic: would fit amazingly if the final was on the 31st October instead of the 30th october
But the final is on the 31st of October! If you're in an elite AEST country, of course. Further proof that AEST time zone = best time zone :rolleyes:

The WV 70 entry is a deliciously sinister wee tune entirely composed and created by my own brother!

"Panic at the Carnival" - Erik Schröder

Re: Svealand // WV 72 // Sofia Karlsson & Martin Hederos // Julkortet // Lyrics translation inside

"Julkortet" - Sofia Karlsson & Martin Hederos

Julkortet
Jag skriver ett julkort till dig nu
Jag hoppas att du har det bättre
Att snön faller sval över din oro
Att du har hittat hem
Jag skriver med penna på papper
Sådär som man gjorde förr
Och snön faller kall vid mitt fönster
Mot kullersten och vid dörr

Det faller vitt, fallera, falleri
Vi har tusen minnen kvar, falleri, fallera
Och vi föll med snön och natten den gången
Och jag glömmer aldrig dig, fallerej

Jag skriver ett julkort till dig nu
Jag skickar dig tusen små änglar
Som ska vakta vid barnens sängar
Och smeka din oro till ro
Jag skriver utan bläck och utan penna
Rader som ingen har sett
Det finns tusen kort som aldrig skickats
Och av dem är detta ett

Det faller vitt, fallera, falleri
Vi har tusen minnen kvar, falleri, fallera
Och vi föll med snön och natten den gången
Och jag glömmer aldrig dig, fallerej

Det faller vitt, fallera, falleri
Vi har tusen minnen kvar, falleri, fallera
Och vi föll med snön och natten den gången
Och jag glömmer aldrig dig, fallerej
The Christmas Card
I'm writing a Christmas Card to you now
I'm hoping that you're doing better
That the snow falls cooling your worry
That you've found your way home
I'm writing with a pen upon paper
Just like they did in the past
And the snow falls coldly by my window
Against cobblestones and by the door

It's falling white, fallerah, falleree
We have a thousand memories left, falleree, fallerah
And we fell with the snow and the night that one time
And I'll never forget you, fallerey

I'm writing a Christmas Card to you now
I'm sending you a thousand little angels
That will guard by the children's bedside
And caress your worry into peace
I'm writing without ink and without a pen
Lines that no one has seen
There are a thousand cards that have never been sent
And of those, this is one

It's falling white, fallerah, falleree
We have a thousand memories left, falleree, fallerah
And we fell with the snow and the night that one time
And I'll never forget you, fallerey

It's falling white, fallerah, falleree
We have a thousand memories left, falleree, fallerah
And we fell with the snow and the night that one time
And I'll never forget you, fallerey

(The "fallera", "falleri", "fallerej" bits don't really mean anything, it's like the "fa la la la" in Deck The Halls, and is often found in older songs.)

xlove

Congratulations, you win the You've Reduced RainyWoods To An Emotional Wreck Awardxheartxheat I loved your previous Sofia Karlsson song, but this one is something else. One of the most beautiful hymns i've ever heard, and it managed to touch me deep before even reading the lyrics. It's just one of those songs that stirs your soul and can bring everything forward. I've not been having a good few months and then hearing Mario's song last edition, and now yours has really screwed me up, in a good way of course. It's healthy to have songs like this that can have that power over you with the aching beauty they possess.

I hope you get everything you deserve with this entry Anna. I can't tell you enough how special it is. Thank you.
