California is a state located on the West Coast of the United States. It is the most populous U.S. state, with 39 million people, and the third largest state by area (after Alaska and Texas). California is bordered by Oregon to the north, Nevada to the east, Arizona to the southeast, and the Mexican state of Baja California to the south. It contains the nation's second most populous census statistical area (Greater Los Angeles Area) and the fifth most populous (San Francisco Bay Area), and eight of the nation's 50 most populated cities (Los Angeles, San Diego, San Jose, San Francisco, Fresno, Sacramento, Long Beach, and Oakland). Sacramento has been the state capital since 1854.

Ahoy hoy, everyone! In light of the gift of the lengthy deadline, I've decided that I will be shelving the internal selection that was planned (for now), reversing course, and doing a National Final! And if I'm going to flip-flop, I'm going big. This NF will have two heats and a final because I could not narrow down my artist's catalogue to 6. They are top 3, possibly top 2, on my list of favorite bands of all time. They're also barely eligible for California; only two of their four members were born in the state, but that's enough, and I'm so happy that I can send them. I will be sending...
http://quietus_production.s3.amazonaws.com/images/articles/7041/REM_Green_1316686099_crop_550x440.jpg
REM!!!
The two heats will be up in the coming hours. Happy listening!

Thank you all for listening! Second heat up in a bit!
(And if the tiny space between the banners bugs you to no end, sorry about that. It bugs me, too. I was doing this by taking screenshots of PowerPoint slides and didn't get them all even.)

Forgot to mention! You can give zero to as many songs as you wish.

What did you think Brinty?

Worst bannering ever. They were too long by about 20 inches. Stick to the day job, oh wait.. don't. LOL.

In other news, what a hot NF. I'm excited you've sent R.E.M. I of course know the band but i've never delved deep into their discography before. This will be very fun to hear the songs you've put forward. You've inspired me to want to do a song NF (as i've already picked my next artist) but I don't want people to get annoyed by the amount of NF's......... it is a very long deadline though........................ very long...... *gathers songs*

lavieenrose
12th September 2015, 23:21
I'll do an update after every set of three votes, so here goes:
First off, thank you very much to Lupus, Ringdalen, and Krishoes for voting. I really appreciate it. Three songs in each heat have really pulled away from the pack, but it is still early, so your votes can definitely cut into that. Interestingly, there's one song that I thought would win this NF in a landslide and probably be my only real contender for a spot in the final, but it currently has zero points in just the first round of voting, so that shows you how much I know!

16th September 2015, 18:31
Thank you to those who have voted so far! There is a tie in one of the heats, so if no one complains in the next half hour and no one votes in the next half hour to break the tie, we'll just have a 7-song final. Also, to control for the possibility of my class (ending at 3:20) running late or my computer having issues, I'm pushing the live listen back 15 minutes.

lavieenrose
16th September 2015, 19:10
My clock reads 12:01, which means that it's now time to reveal the seven songs that will continue vying to represent California at WV 53!
1. The Great Beyond: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rxglitQ0rog
2. Don't Go Back to Rockville: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6fXCjSgItgw
3. The One I Love: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j7oQEPfe-O8

6. At My Most Beautiful: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EpNUDLsAOvY
7. The Sidewinder Sleeps Tonite: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vud_KcNhBak

As in the previous round, allocate 10 points between the songs as you wish. You can give 0 to anywhere between 0 and 6 songs. Voting deadline is 20 September at 23:59 CET. Happy listening! :D

It's funny: I chose a number as low as ten because I wanted to make blanking songs easier, but I've now had two of our seven fantastic voters tell me that ten was too few, which is quite kind and means a lot, so thank you. xheart

If you want to help choose the entry, you have until the end of today (Sunday) CET to cast your votes! One song currently has a comfortable but not even close to insurmountable (even with one more voter) lead, so you really can make a difference! :)

Thank you again xheart xheat xhat

WV 53: REM - "The Great Beyond"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rxglitQ0rog
I've watched the stars fall silent from your eyes
All the sights that I have seen
I can't believe that I believed I wished
That you could see
There's a new planet in the solar system
There is nothing up my sleeve

I'm pushing an elephant up the stairs
I'm tossing up punch lines that were never there
Over my shoulder a piano falls
Crashing to the ground

In all this talk of time
Talk is fine
But I don't want to stay around
Why can't we pantomime, just close our eyes
And sleep sweet dreams
Me and you with wings on our feet

I'm pushing an elephant up the stairs
I'm tossing up punch lines that were never there
Over my shoulder a piano falls
Crashing to the ground

I'm breaking through
I'm bending spoons
I'm keeping flowers in full bloom
I'm looking for answers from the great beyond

I want the hummingbirds, the dancing bears
Sweetest dreams of you
I Look into the stars
I Look into the moon

I'm pushing an elephant up the stairs
I'm tossing up punch lines that were never there
Over my shoulder a piano falls
Crashing to the ground

I'm breaking through
I'm bending spoons
I'm keeping flowers in full bloom
I'm looking for answers from the great beyond

I'm breaking through
I'm bending spoons
I'm keeping flowers in full bloom
I'm looking for answers from the great
Answers from the great, answers

I'm breaking through
I'm bending spoons
I'm keeping flowers in full bloom
I'm looking for answers from the great beyond

I'm breaking through
I'm bending spoons
I'm keeping flowers in full bloom
I'm looking for answers from the great
Answers from the great, answers

I'm breaking through
I'm bending spoons
I'm keeping flowers in full bloom
I'm looking for answers from the great beyond

This song means an unbelievable amount to me; it's one of my absolute favorite songs ever, and 'tis a joy to be sharing it with the people I hold dear. xheart xheart xheart

So I come back to my greenroom to find all these wonderful messages from y'all. Thank you all so, so much. I can't believe REM and "The Great Beyond" got this close; I was expecting my first honest-to-goodness megaflop. Thank you especially to RainyWoods, revallsay, esc87fan, Ringdalen, and Lupus, who've voted for every single one of my entries for which they could have voted. And thank you to everyone who wasn't fond of the entry but bore with as I went with something that was extremely special to me. xheart xheart xheart xheart xheart

As to 54, there will be a national final up very soon! It's the first time I'm letting y'all pick both the song and the artist that I shall be sending. 3 languages (sort of four) and everything musically from an old showtune to not one but two pieces of slutpop (albeit one parody of the genre)!

WV 54: Martha Wash - "Carry On"


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vr04x-rWFMU

I stand alone in the eye of the storm
pressures all around tryin' wear me down
But I hold tight to what I know what it's right
still can hear the way mama used to say
"NEVER. No, never let your spirit bend
never, never give in 'til the end. I carry on"

When the valley's deep, I'll be strong
With a mighty love to carry on, carry on
I'll never sleep till the new day dawns
I carry on

There's a new breeze blowin' tonight
Clear away the past
Honey, free at last
Yes, I've paid for the choices I've made

No apologies from me
You know I'll never, no
Never lose my will
Never, never standin' still

I'll carry on
When the valley's deep I'll be strong
With a mighty love to carry on
Never sleep til' the new day dawns
I carry on

Istand alone in the eye of the storm
Pressures all around
Tryin' to wear me down

But it's all right
I won't give up the fight
I said, "Lord, lift me up!"
Let me rise above

I'll never
Nobody's gonna take my pride
I won't stop
I will not be denied

Carry on
When the valley's deep I'll be strong
With a mighty love to carry on, carry on
I'll never sleep till the new day dawns
I carry on
I WON'T STOP, NO.
Yes, I'll carry
I'll carry on, yeah
Yes I'll carry
Carry on, I'm gonna carry on
Yes, I'll carry
Carry on
Don't worry about me

I said I'll never
Nobody's gonna take my pride
I won't stop I will not BE DENIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIED

I'll Carry on
When the valley's deep
I'll be strong with the mighty love to
Carry on, carry on
I'll never sleep till the new day dawns

When the valley's deep
Just carry on
I'll carry on
When the mountain's too high
You gotta carry on
I'll carry on
With the mighty love
I'll never sleep
I'll carry on till the new day dawns

lavieenrose
15th October 2015, 22:57
Carry On: 114 - everyone except one person (me...and I was close) had this in their top 5, so I like to think of it as a real consensus choice.
The Beginning: 95
You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real): 90
Yasisi: 82
You Can Touch My Boobies: 79
Got to Be Real: 60
Self-Esteem: 49
Marian the Librarian: 47
Sukiyaki: 47
Bust Your Knee Caps: 47
You're Still a Young Man: 46 (15 of which were from me...I actually only really voted because it was in last for most of the voting, and I couldn't bear to look at that xshifty)
Pero Nadie: 45

I was going to do some fancy statistical things to show similarities, and those may come, but until now, I just felt too lazy. Sorry.

Martha Wash is best known in the pop music world for a pair of songs: "It's Raining Men" and "Gonna Make You Sweat," often mis-titled as "EVERYBODY DANCE NOW!" She started her career as a backing singer for Sylvester, whom you may recognize from the NF. She subsequently broke out as half of The Weather Girls, who had a string of great songs, but only "It's Raining Men" really broke into the mainstream. Later, she also recorded the song with RuPaul, another adversary of hers in this last NF. Go check it out; it's amazing. After The Weather Girls broke up, she lent her voice to a number of extremely popular dance songs ("EVERYBODY DANCE NOW" included). However, in the music videos for all of these dance songs, she was replaced by thinner women lip-syncing to her vocals. Additionally, her pay was almost non-existent for these songs, so she took the record labels to court and emerged victorious. She really won't stop, no. Martha has made no reference to "Carry On" being about overcoming getting screwed over by the music industry, but it's hard not to imagine that she's singing "notwithstanding that I'm stunningly gorgeous, I've been told that I'm not attractive enough to sing, something that has nothing to do with my voice, so I'm just going to keep on doing what I'm doing." I hope you enjoy our entry oh so much and are inspired to carry on when the valley is deep.

tl;dr Martha Wash has one of the best voices ever but kept getting shat on for her appearance, so she decided to kick even more arse. Hope you enjoy our song.

Biggest WV injustice since i've been taking part. I'll never forget Martha Wash and this humongous, inspirational, very special song. Thank you Calvin for giving us such high energy and good vibes with this hit. I think it's my joint favourite discovery, up there with Southeast Brazil's "Como Ves". I simply adore "Carry On" and haven't been able to get it out of my head since you introduced it to me.. and do I even want it out of my head? Heck no! It can stay there still. We gotta carry on, even when the valleys deep, we'll be strong!

Thank you all so much for your lovely messages xheart xheart xheart As y'all know, I'm not in this for results, so knowing that the song reached so many of you was really quite heartwarming. Also rather heartwarming was seeing two of you in the results show with usernames alluding to other songs from the big-arse NF; 'twas great to see ardent defenders of songs that didn't even make it to WV.

Seeing as Martha told us to carry on even when the valley is deep, my eyes are now set on 1) supporting the (very few xcry1 - seriously; there were 25 songs this edition I loved, and now it looks like getting ten in the final will be close) of my favorites who are in the final and 2) next edition. As to 2), there is a nine-song edition of Hella Legit Songs that will go public minutes after the Semi 3 results show, but I have no idea what to do about a voting system. Nine is a bit of an awkward number, but I'll figure something out by the time it goes up.

So two songs are exactly tied for first at 55 right now pretty much having left the others in the dust with a duo championing each song and two folk supporting them in roughly equal measure. They're also the two songs I most want to send, so I'm pretty chuffed with how this is going.

Consider this LL a formalized opportunity to give the songs a listen before you vote - keep a notepad/Word document handy, and you can send me your votes right after in advance of the 23:59 Saturday deadline. If you've already voted, have a favorite, and just want to come along and persuade others, that's great too! :)

After sleeping on this decision and being urged to reconsider, I am weighing the possibility of coming back next edition. If I do, the leader of the NF when I closed it will be selected internally.

I am considering this on the condition that the anger and toxicity of the previous results show magically disappear, which I do think is a possibility. Don't let me down.

Just realized that I didn't do an introductory post for our entry! An hour-odd before we get knocked out is as good a time as any, I suppose!

Robert Delong - "Don't Wait Up"


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5bRg519gPuI

Waiting on the phone to ring and wake us up again
Lost inside a dream with halls that never seem to end
Falling from the ceiling, I keep crawling on the floor
Can't avoid the feeling this has happened all before

I stumble out of my home
I'm looking out every now and then
If I'm leaving my home
I don't know when I'll be back again

So donít you wait up for me, I'm leaving with the light
Donít wait up for me, I've got a restless mind
Trying to pull ahead, I'm always chasing time
Donít wait up for me, I've got a restless mind
I've got a restless mind

Waiting for the phone to ring and shake me up again
Pull me out from underneath the state that I've been in
Searching for a reason, I've been looking for the door
Nothings gonna keep me here just waiting anymore

I stumble out of my home
I'm looking out every now and then
If I'm leaving my home
I don't know when I'll be back again

So donít you wait up for me, I'm leaving with the light
Donít wait up for me, I've got a restless mind
Trying to pull ahead, I'm always chasing time
Donít wait up for me, I've got a restless mind
I've got a restless mind

So don't you wait up for me, I'm leaving with the light
Donít wait up for me, I've got a restless mind
Trying to pull ahead, I'm always chasing time
Donít wait up for me, I've got a restless mind

Don't you wait up for me, I'm leaving with the light
Donít wait up for me, I've got a restless mind
Trying to pull ahead, I'm always chasing time
Donít wait up for me, I've got a restless mind

Don't you wait up for me, I'm leaving with the light
Donít wait up for me, I've got a restless mind
Trying to pull ahead, I'm always chasing time
Donít wait up for me, I've got a restless mind
I've got a restless mind

I've got a restless mind

As I may have told some of y'all, my favorite performances at Eurovision are the semifinal ones that get their country into the final for the first time/what may as well be the first time.

Hello, here she is. My inspiration, my icon, my everything. Tinashe aka bae aka french fry lover aka my fav singer ever xlove xheart
I'm sooooo happy that I'm finally able to share her music with the WV fam, but then again already scared of the potential heartbreaking flop. Some facts about her: Tinashe (you pronounce her name Tee-nah-shay) has released 4 mixtapes (which she all recorded in her bedroom studio) plus her debut album Aquarius and is about to release her 2nd album Joyride soon. All her stuff is straight fire, so check it out :> Oh and she will turn 23 during the next edition #birthdayedition
I could write more now, for example about how awesome she is as a person, but no one would read it haha.. one last thing I want to say, she's going on tour in the next months..... and I'm going to see & meet her #selfiesooncome xfaint xheart

Here are the six vibrating hits http://www.airgunhome.com/agforum/images/smiles/vibe.gif

Six songs are a lot, but it was difficult enough to leave some song out (I could have included many more haha) soo I hope you guys will help me to choose her song! And if you don't want to help.. you can't escape from this life changing National Final, so better vote before I spam you with annoying mentions xrose

Gosh, why do you want huge flops for your friends? :confused:

I do beg your pardon? I picked my favourites. I've adored "Party Favors" since the first listen and "Bet" is a work of art both aurally and visually. I actually think "All My Friends" is HipFlo's best chance to do well. "Cold Sweat" would be the most difficult sell. "All Hands On Deck" is super catchy but doesn't have the anthemic sing along chorus of "All My Friends" (the current UK chart number 5). I hope now that it's "Player" as the other remaining choice I think is too hip for WV. Then again, you all voted for it so you must like it................................. unless PLOT TWIST YOU all wanted a huge flop for dear HipFlo by killing off "All My Friends"xqueenbitch


To be honest though, any of these six Tinashe songs would be a brave choice #PrayForHipFlo

Tinashe ft. Chris Brown
Player


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IltwiyqKhEI

Epic Live Performance (https://vimeo.com/147208509)

Lyrics

[Verse 1: Tinashe]
Live life like if I want, I do
If I want love, I get it, get it, I get it
Fooled me twice, if I fall for you
If I go there, forget it

[Pre-Chorus: Tinashe]
So you better stay up, player
Yeah, you better keep up, player
Cause tonight is a game-changer
So you better stay up, player

[Verse 2: Tinashe]
Playing with fire, if I burn, you do
If I hurt, you won't let it (you won't let it)
Stacked my deck like I ain't gon' lose
Like a victim, forget it

[Pre-Chorus: Tinashe]
So you better stay up, player
Yeah, you better keep up, player
Cause tonight is a game-changer
So you better stay up, player

[Chorus: Tinashe]
You and I make so much love
Why you got me all fucked up?
Yeah, you got me holdin' back, holdin' back
But it ain't enough
You and I make so much love
Why you got me all fucked up?
Yeah, you got me holdin' back, holdin' back
Cause it ain't enough

[Verse 3: Chris Brown]
All right, baby girl, I don't want them other bitches
You be talking that shit, calling me a player, yeah
Ain't no competition, fuck the opposition
I'm the man of my city, just like the mayor
I met her in the hotel lobby
Then we started loving in the elevator
You know I had to eat that
Tongue on her body, see you later, alligator
Rolling 'round in the bed, smacking her on her ass
She a stone-cold killer, 45 in the back
Mama told her never mess with a nigga like me
I took her to Fruit Town to meet my OG
I took her to the west side, like "What's up?"
We was on the east side, we fucked
Now we sitting court-side, P-dub
Put me in the bed, you ain't gotta worry 'bout it

[Pre-Chorus: Tinashe & Chris Brown]
So you better stay up, player
Yeah, you better keep up, player
Cause tonight is a game-changer
So you better stay up, player

[Chorus: Tinashe & Chris Brown]
You and I make so much love
Why you got me all fucked up?
Yeah, you got me holdin' back, holdin' back
But it ain't enough
You and I make so much love
Why you got me all fucked up?
Yeah, you got me holdin' back, holdin' back
Cause it ain't enough

[Chorus: Tinashe & Chris Brown]
You and I make so much love (I been wanna give up, nah)
Why you got me all fucked up? (But you're making it rough, nah)
Yeah, you got me holdin' back, holdin' back (You got me)
But it ain't enough (Holdin' back, holdin' back, back)
You and I make so much love (I been wanna give up, nah)
Why you got me all fucked up? (But you're making it rough, nah)
Yeah, you got me holdin' back, holdin' back
Cause it ain't enough

[Outro: Tinashe]
(Ain't enough) Player
(Ain't enough)

It would appear that my vibrations are controlled enough to enjoy "Party Favors" and "Bet". Feeling rather cool and hip at the moment, I must confess.

Good winner though. I think the better choice over "All Hands On Deck". In fact, the WAY better choice. Gosh, look at those 7'sxheat I'm the only one to give it a 2 and I love it still. I've got everything crossed for you this edition my friend. Hope you get your girl into the finalxpray

Green Day - 21 Guns


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r00ikilDxW4

Lyrics

Do you know what's worth fighting for?
When it's not worth dying for?
Does it take your breath away and you feel yourself suffocating?
Does the pain weigh out the pride?
And you look for a place to hide?
Did someone break your heart inside, you're in ruins

One, 21 Guns
Lay down your arms
Give up the fight
One, 21 Guns
Throw up your arms into the sky
You and I ...

When you're at the end of the road
And you lost all sense of control
And your thoughts have taken their toll
When your mind breaks the spirit of your soul
Your faith walks on broken glass and the hangover doesn't pass
Nothing's ever built to last, you're in ruins

One, 21 Guns
Lay down your arms
Give up the fight
One, 21 Guns
Throw up your arms into the sky
You and I ...

Did you try to live on your own?
When you burned down the house and home?
Did you stand too close to the fire?
Like a liar looking for forgiveness from a stone
When it's time to live and let die
And you can't get another try
Something inside this heart has died, you're in ruins

One, 21 Guns
Lay down your arms
Give up the fight
One, 21 Guns
Throw up your arms into the sky
One, 21 Guns
Lay down your arms
Give up the fight
One, 21 Guns
Throw up your arms into the sky

You and I

I'm not sure if I will like any of your artists of this selection but if I hear something I can appreciate I will give you a complete voting. Otherwise I will refrain. :)

I will be voting Friday, when I come home from school. I listened to the songs and I never saw myself as the type to fangirl over Selena Gomez

But here I am

Ariana Grande ft. Zedd - Break Free


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L8eRzOYhLuw

Lyrics

If you want it, take it
I should've said it before
Tried to hide it, fake it
I can't pretend anymore (ooh)

I only wanna die alive
Never by the hands of a broken heart (ooh)
Don't wanna hear you lie tonight
Now that I've become who I really are

This is the part when I say I don't want ya
I'm stronger than I've been before
This is the part when I break free
Cause I can't resist it no more

This is the part when I say I don't want ya
I'm stronger than I've been before
This is the part when I break free
Cause I can't resist it no more

You were better, deeper
I was under your spell, yeah
Like a deadly fever (yeah, babe)
On the highway to hell, yeah (ooh)

I only wanna die alive
Never by the hands of a broken heart (ooh)
Don't wanna hear you lie tonight
Now that I've become who I really am

This is the part when I say I don't want ya
I'm stronger than I've been before
This is the part when I break free
Cause I can't resist it no more

This is the part when I say I don't want ya
I'm stronger than I've been before
This is the part when I break free
Cause I can't resist it no more

No more, baby
(Oooh)

Thought on your body I came alive
It was lethal, it was fatal
In my dreams it felt so right
But I woke up everytime
Oh baby!

This is the part when I say I don't want ya
I'm stronger than I've been before
This is the part when I break free
Cause I can't resist it no more

This is the part when I say I don't want ya
I'm stronger than I've been before
This is the part when I break free
Cause I can't resist it no more

Hot voting from Carrie xheat

Rainy, Cinderella and Evangeline, you will all burn for those 1's to Becky G. IOTAP

Still, despite the loss of Becky i'm happy it was second place that won at least.

Plz the only burn I will be getting is sunburn from the extreme radiance of Selena Gomez's Come and Get It.

An update on next edition:
Most of the national (regional) finals that I do are to give people more songs from me even if they don't end up enjoying my entry. As the great Nancy Lam once said, "if you can't have 'Someday We'll Linger in the Sun,' have 'By Myself.' If you can't have 'No More Tears (Enough Is Enough),' have 'Verdi Cries.'" This time around, I was genuinely torn between four pieces of music and surrendered myself to the will of others as a result via a secret NF. Thank you so very much to my two secret jurors (you know who you are) for giving incredibly thoughtful and reasoned responses; it's incredible and much appreciated to have you care as much as you two clearly did. They haven't made my job of picking an entry any easier. Two of the four songs they received seem to have stood a touch higher for both of them, and I'm still torn between the two. They kind of work as companion pieces: one celestial, pure, and pretty, the other emotive, raw, and difficult to swallow. Also both by men (and neither Robert!), a tad strange given my WV history. :p One of the two will be coming to you; stay tuned.
