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

If I was an astronaut, I'd have a bird's eye view
I'd circle 'round the world and keep on coming back to you
In my floating castle, I'd rub shoulders with the stars
But I'm only human, and I'm drifting in the dark

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 want to 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'd 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 want to 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
Nothing but space, man
And I want to go home​

James Newman the sequel
This was exactly my thought and what inspired the above rant. A second consecutive person highly credentialed in the behind-the-scenes part of the music industry who's about to reveal to us all why they've stayed behind the scenes? May as well try it! Not like you'll stick the landing on anything else!

Exactly I want them to send their next big star. Not some person who has been songwriting behind the scenes for years and hasn’t had a hit.

But the thing is that they've tried this many times. In many formats. With many definitions of "their next big star." And the execution has been very, very bad every single time. Why write someone off just because they're similar to something that failed in the past? Everything has failed in the past.

I'm staying vaguely optimistic for the UK this time (I kinda said the same last year but yeah...). This record label seems to have released and launched a bunch of acts that I personally like (or liked in the past at least), and at least on paper it seems BBC has some ambitions this time around (let's see how it'll all play out in the end of course).

I'll reserve any excitement for the 2022 entry until BBC can prove that they are truly trying to innovate and break away from the processes of the past. Keep the fans and the general public engaged - build hype gradually throughout the coming 3-4 months across the whole of Europe, don't just go silent and wait until almost the submission deadline to suddenly announce a half-baked Radio 2 first play two days later.

It's definitely a positive development that BBC signed this deal with a renowned record company.
However let's not forget that a songwriter for Dua Lipa, One Direction, Selena Gomez was behind Levina's Perfect Lie.
So I'd rather hold my horses at this point.
What UK needs is a DECENT SONG + a CHARISMATIC PERFORMER.
Someone outgoing with an interesting song, someone who will attract the bloggers. That's all it takes.
Just look at Mikolas Josef who turned Czechia's luck completely.

Almost getting the Scottish rep.

Can't get over them wanting Darren Styles though. 🤣🤣 The absolute rave banger the UK would drop with him. I'm interested to know who it is that they did pick. Most seem convinced Chelcee Grimes is involved in some way.
