Club Contact

The new MP3 blog from London's club Contact. The idea is to allow people to hear new music they wouldn't have otherwise found but, if anyone has any copyright issues with a particular song, i'll take the link down. Songs are only available for a limited amount of time.

There are three things i know about the Former Yugoslav Republic Of Macedonia:

1. It was the birthplace of Alexander The Great.
2. It's called the "Former Yugoslav Republic Of Macedonia" because Greece threatened to try to block their membership of the United Nations, and their formal recognition on the world stage, if they just called themselves "Macedonia", a name they lay claim to. Even now, they refuse to sit anywhere near them in the General Assembly building.
3. If they win the Eurovision Song Contest, i win £640.



Elena Risteska's Ninanaja is an absolute stormer - a fantastic combination of a loping reggaeton bassline, Ruslana-style ethno-pop and Shakira-influenced vocals. It's far and away the best song in this year's competition and a 33-1 outsider with the bookmakers. I've already picked out the Belstaff jacket i intend to buy with my winnings. Please Europe, don't give me yet another reason to hate Kate Ryan.

    The chorus keeps getting stuck in my head. That must be a good sign :-)

    Have you heard the new English version?

    Oh no! I haven't heard it yet. Please tell me it's good. I imagine it'll be the one she uses on the night.

    Well, "hate" is a bit strong. I actually bought one of her albums for a pound and quite enjoyed Mon Coeur Resiste Encore in a hands-in-the-air Ian Van Dahl way. I haven't forgiven her for the mauling of Libertine and Desenchantee though and i don't think much of the Belgian song. She's also the single most boring pop star i've ever seen interviewed.

    I think I prefer her Libertine to Mylene's. *ducks and hides*

    I agree completely with your post even posted with a link on www.esctoday.com
    I had a sneak peak on ERT news report from yesterday's final rehearsal. Beside the politically motivated intention of ERT completely to ignore Macedonian entry, the report was scheduled to cover only the Cypriot (Greek) entry, but unfortunately :-) it was prolonged... reporters fault and Elena started her dress rehearsal... she had that superb appearance... voice, looks (back vocals were looking great too)... in every sense better than I have expected. I am really inpatient for tonight's show.

    Elena is a virus from out of space - Virtual Macedonia.
