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​

They didn't get the memo that Europe likes the UK again

I voted 4x, c'mon! 🤣

The truth is that British pop music has never been particularly popular here.

As far as I can recollect from British music industry, people here love(d) Robbie Williams, Adele, Amy Winehouse and British rock especially (Arctic Monkeys' concert to be held this summer in Pula colosseum got sold out online in 5 minutes literally, crazy).

But we have never been very fond of British classic pop, e.g. Elton John, Dua Lipa or similar.

Nor did British artists put much effort into touring in ex-Yu. It goes 2 ways I guess.

There’s no need for rudeness. Whoever you’re talking about you must remember the Jury Final is the day before the Grand Final.
which I watched.

I am accredited xqueenbitch

If you wanna see rudeness, go to the Albanian thread

I guess some songs are immune from adjectives “cheap” or “trash” but they can be freely used for certain songs? Who decides that?

Id take you a lot more seriously if you werent the same person that thought Albania was one of the best this year
*the best, and moreover the only good song this year

I thought we were supposed to respect other people’s tastes here.

I am just stating my opinion like everyone else is doing. xshrug

If you actually were accredited you didn't deserve to be with this attitude. You don't have to love everything but learn some respect.

If calling a song 'cheap' and 'overrated' based on your personal liking is supposed to be bad attitude, then 90% of the forum has it. Just go to the threads of all my favorites, you can find them. You can trash all pop songs such as Albania, Israel and Cyprus, but Sweden and UK have immunity? To me, they are the trash ones. And I should have the same rights everyone has, criticize songs based on my personal taste. xqueenbitch

Just bought Sam´s EP "The Sun´s Gonna Rise" and it´s such a ride. What a talent! What a voice! - I wish him all the best - he deserves to become a well-established artist on a worldwide scale, for sure!

He´s going on tour in October (also in Germany). Dunno if I should buy a ticket - I usually don´t like attending concerts without knowing the album - it was kinda strange with Dua Lipa and Duncan Laurence back then.
