    FSC Promotions Thread

    The FSC Promotions Thread is a forum-thread where the FSC-juries can promote their entries (post pictures/song lyrics/info on artist/group etc) each FSC-month.

    It makes it easier for everyone to go to one place in the FSC Forum and find the promotions here, instead of having to go to every single jury-thread and check there.

    This is how it works:

    1. The FSC juries may promote their FSC-entries in this thread. NB! This can only be done once the FSC-edition has officially been started.

    2. It is voluntary to post promotions in this thread. Of course every jury can post their promotion in their own jury-thread also, this is an extra feature.

    3. This FSC Promotions Thread is for entry-promotions only, no discussions/talk/comments must be posted here (that is to be done in the other FSC forum-threads).

    Have fun promoting - and good luck to all entries!

    Regards,
    Malagant

    FSC January 2010 - Norway




    FSC Norway - January 2010 - Annie - Don’t Stop



    Representing Norway in FSC January 2010 is one of Norway’s most talented female Electro-pop artists, Annie with a catchy Electro-pop song called “Don’t Stop”. This is one of three new and previously unreleased tracks that were added to her “Don’t Stop”-album for the album’s official release in October 2009. The album - in an earlier incarnation - was promoted in 2008 and songs leaked onto the internet though the album saw no official release at that time. Annie parted company with her record label and took the master-tapes with her. And in the autumn of 2009 she finally released the album and included the new song “Don’t Stop” - our entry for Norway here in FSC January - and two others. The album (which included popular singles such as “Songs Remind Me Of You” and “My Love Is Better”) received critical acclaim and re-established her as one of Norway’s most innovative and colourful Electro-pop artists.

    Annie, or Anne Lilia Berge Strand as is her real name, was born on 21st November 1977. She is a Norwegian Electro-pop artist and DJ from Bergen, Norway. After completing secondary school, Annie started DJing in Bergen, where she met house-producer and future boyfriend Tore Kroknes. In 1999, Annie and Kroknes released the single "The Greatest Hit", which became popular in Norwegian and British underground nightclubs. Before Annie and Kroknes could release an album, Kroknes tragically died from a congenital heart defect in 2001. She returned to recording later that year, collaborating with Richard X, Röyksopp, and Timo Kaukolampi. Annie's DJing experiences taught her about sound and production and had an impact on her music. Annie went on to sign a record deal with UK ”679 Recordings” in 2003, releasing her debut album ”Anniemal” in 2004, an innovative and catchy Electro-pop album (with influences also from disco, hip hop, bubblegum pop, 80s-music, dance-pop as well as R&B) for which she received widespread critical acclaim and several Norwegian music awards. The album included her club-and-radio-hits ”Chewing Gum” and ”Heartbeat”.

    In 2005 Annie released a DJ Mix Album as part of !K7’s DJ-Kicks series and then in 2007 she signed a record deal with UK’s Island Records. She started work on the ”Don’t Stop”-album, an album which was to be preceeded by the single ”I Know UR Girlfriend Hates Me”. For many reasons (among them the moderate success of the single and differences of opinion as to the way forwards) the album was delayed several times and as mentioned before Annie finally parted company with Island Records and went on to release the album - including some new tracks - in the autumn of 2009 on an independent record label called Smalltown Supersound.

    Annie has been praised for her unique "indie" style of Electro-pop and Synth-pop music and has by some been described as "a pop singer with credibility, an indie artist with one eye on the dancefloor". Annie herself describes her music as "pop with strange edges” and is without a doubt a talented, innovative and colourful Norwegian music artist with an attitude and a fresh perspective from whom we will undoubtedly hear more in the future.

    Our entry for FSC January is alas a new catchy Norwegian Electro-pop song in her distinct style performed by the talented young artist Annie.

    Below are the English lyrics for the song. We hope you’ll enjoy our entry!




    Annie - Don’t Stop

    Don’t Stop

    I can’t stop, that’s what I got
    Still then I’m gonna keep on going
    All I know is who I am
    And I’ll never be afraid to show it

    I won’t stop ‘cause I’m on top
    And you’re never gonna knock me off it
    What I say and what I do are the same thing
    Don’t you know it?

    I wonder if I’ll ever need to be
    Afraid of the unknown
    I’ll be the flame, you’ll be the fuel

    If you resist my kiss and miss my lips
    You know you crossed the line
    You play by my rules

    Let’s go!
    You have no - control
    I said Oh! Wanna know?
    Don’t stop
    Let’s go!

    Don’t Stop

    Don’t you stop, I know you won’t
    ‘Cause I’m gonna make you keep on movin’
    I dress up to dress you down
    And I’m gonna keep the rhythm groovin’

    I’ve got you set in my sight
    I’m loaded, ready to fire
    Wait ‘till you’re in the same place
    And you know I won’t make it hard

    I wonder if I’ll ever need to be
    Afraid of the unknown
    I’ll be the flame, you’ll be the fuel

    If you resist my kiss and miss my lips
    You know you crossed the line
    You play by my rules
    Let’s go!
    You have no - control
    I said Oh! Wanna know?
    Don’t stop

    Let’s go!
    I said go!
    I’m on
    Let’s go! You have no - control

    Don’t underestimate me
    Time after time you’ll be the one to lose
    Baby abide
    ‘Cause you’re playing by my rules

    Let’s go!
    You have no - control
    I said Oh! Wanna know?
    Don’t stop

    Let’s go!
    I said go!
    I’m on
    Let’s go! You have no - control

    Don’t stop

    Lolita - Ostanovite Zemlyu (Stop the Earth)



    Lyrics (in Russian)


    Пусть говорят,
    Что мир сошёл с ума,
    А он не лучше, не хуже, чем был.
    Пусть говорят,
    И в разные времена
    Принимают его любым.
    А я не лучше других,
    Я хочу быть другой,
    Да я просто другая.
    Мой чистый - как свет,
    Как небо - мой мир - голубой,
    Я хочу быть - как он - голубая...

    Остановите Землю - я сойду!
    Не упаду, не упаду,
    Моя планета - как я - другая.
    Остановите Землю - я сойду!
    Свою найду и не найду,
    Взойду - как эта -
    Вся голубая.

    Одни говорят:
    С небом спорить нельзя;
    То, что дали иметь, то имей.
    Ещё говорят:
    Жить надо, как вся Земля,
    Но дело во мне, а не в ней.
    Я знаю, внутри меня
    Сотни тысяч безумств,
    Да я просто другая.
    Меня раздывает на части
    От сил и от чувств,
    А может, я уже голубая...

    Остановите Землю - я сойду!
    Не упаду, не упаду,
    Моя планета - как я - другая.
    Остановите Землю - я сойду!
    Свою найду и не найду,
    Взойду - как эта -
    Вся голубая.

    (Translation into English)

    Let people speak: "the World has gone mad",
    But it's not better, it's not worser than was
    Let people speak that at various times they accept its any kind
    And I'm not better than others, I wish to be another,
    Yes, I am just another
    My pure as light, as the sky my blue world,
    And I wish to be as it - blue*.

    Refrain:
    Stop the earth, I will descend
    I won't fall, I won't fall
    My planet, as I - Another.

    Stop the earth, I will descend
    Then I will find or I won't find
    I'll ascend as this all blue.

    The ones speaks that's impossible to argue with the sky,
    Have what you are allowed yo have
    The others speaks that you should live like all Earth,
    But the deal in me, not in Earth.
    I know I have hundred thousand madnesses inside me,
    Yes, I am just Another
    I torn in half from power and feelings,
    And there can be I already blue?

    * Blue in Russian doesn't mean only colour, this is often used name of gay people.

    Silbermond - Krieger des Lichts



    After a short break Germany returns to the FSC with one of it's most successful bands of the last decade.

    Silbermond's band members originally met in 1998 in Bautzen, Saxony when they participated in the music project Ten Sing. Two years later, they decided to form their own group, and as a result they began performing locally under the name Jast (composed by the initial letters of the band members Johannes, Andreas, Stefanie and Thomas). In 2001, they changed their name to Silbermond, simultaneously concentrating on songs in German language for the first time.

    In January 2004 the group got the chance to perform as opening act for singer Jeanette Biedermann. Afterwards they released their first single "Mach's Dir Selbst", followed-up by their debut album Verschwende deine Zeit, which was eventually certified double platinum in Germany and Austria and spawned three further singles, including top 5 hit "Symphonie".

    In April 2006, Silbermond released their second album Laut Gedacht. The album debuted at #1 on the German and Austrian album charts and spawned another top 10 hit with its lead single "Unendlich". While the album's second single, "Meer Sein" failed to enter the top 30, its third single, "Das Beste", released in October 2006, became the group's first number one single.

    Their third Album Nichts Passiert was released on 20 March 2009. It debuted at #1 on both the German, the Swiss and the Austrian album charts. The first single "Irgendwas bleibt" also became a #1 hit, whereas their second single "Ich bereue nichts" only made it into the top 20.
    The third single from the Album "Krieger des Lichts" refers to the book "The Manual of the Warrior of Light" written by the famous Brazilian author Paulo Coelho and is another Top 10 hit for the band.

    Below you find the German lyrics and a rough translation into English

    Krieger des Lichts
    Sei wie der Fluß, der eisern ins Meer fließt
    Der sich nicht abbringen läßt egal wie schwer&#39;s ist
    Selbst den größten Stein fürchtet er nicht
    Auch wenn es Jahre dauert bis er ihn bricht
    Und wenn Dein Wille schläft, dann weck ihn wieder
    Denn in jedem von uns steckt dieser Krieger
    Dessen Mut ist wie ein Schwert
    Doch die größte Waffe ist sein Herz.

    Lasst uns aufstehn
    Macht Euch auf den Weg
    An alle Krieger des Lichts
    An alle Krieger des Lichts
    Wo seid Ihr
    Ihr seid gebraucht hier
    Macht Euch auf den Weg
    An alle Krieger des Lichts
    An alle Krieger des Lichts
    Das hier geht an alle Krieger des Lichts

    Hab keine Angst vor Deinen Schwächen
    Fürchte nie Deine Fehler aufzudecken
    Sei bedacht, beruhigt und befreit
    Sei auch verrückt von Zeit zu Zeit
    Lass Dich nicht täuschen, auch wenns aus Gold ist
    Lass Dich nicht blenden, erst recht von falschem Stolz nicht
    Lerne vergeben und verzeihen
    Lerne zu fesseln und zu befreien

    Lasst uns aufstehn
    Macht Euch auf den Weg
    An alle Krieger des Lichts
    An alle Krieger des Lichts
    Wo seid Ihr
    Ihr seid gebraucht hier
    Macht Euch auf den Weg
    An alle Krieger des Lichts
    An alle Krieger des Lichts
    Das hier geht an alle Krieger des Lichts

    Und er kennt seine Grenzen und geht trotzdem zu weit
    Kein Glück in der Ferne nachdem er nicht greift
    Seine Macht ist sein Glaube
    um nichts kämpft er mehr
    Und das immer und immer wieder
    Deswegen ist er ein Krieger

    Das ist ein Aufruf
    Und das hier geht
    an alle Krieger
    an alle Krieger
    Das ist ein Aufruf
    Und dieser Aufruf geht
    an alle Krieger des Lichts
    an alle Krieger des Lichts
    Das hier geht an alle Krieger des Lichts

    Warrior of Light
    Be like the river that flows ironly into the sea
    That can not be distract no matter how difficult it is
    He even doesn't fear the largest stone
    Even if it takes years until he breaks
    And if your will sleeps, then wake it again
    Because in each of us lies the warrior
    Whose courage is like a sword
    But the biggest weapon is his heart.

    Let us rise up
    Hit the road
    To all the warriors of Light
    To all the warriors of Light
    Where are you
    You&#39;re needed here
    Hit the road
    To all the warriors of Light
    To all the warriors of Light
    Here goes to all the warriors of Light

    Don't be afraid of your weaknesses
    Never be afraid to discover your mistakes
    Be careful, calm and free
    You might also be crazy from time to time
    Let's not fool yourself, even when it's made of gold
    Let yourself be dazzled, not even more, from false pride
    Learn to forgive and to excuse
    Learn how to captivate and to liberate

    Let us rise up
    Hit the road
    To all the warriors of Light
    To all the warriors of Light
    Where are you
    You're needed here
    Hit the road
    To all the warriors of Light
    To all the warriors of Light
    Here goes to all the warriors of Light

    And he knows his limitations and still goes too far
    No happiness in the distance when he does not intervene
    His power is his belief
    He is fighting for nothing more
    And again and again
    Therefore, he is a warrior

    This is a call
    And here is
    to all warriors
    to all warriors
    This is a call
    And is this call
    to all the warriors of Light
    to all the warriors of Light
    Here goes to all the warriors of Light

    BRAZIL


    CéU - Bubuia



    Bubuia

    Já que não estamos aqui só a passeio
    Já que a vida enfim, não é recreio
    Eu vou na bubuia, eu vou

    Flutuo, navegando, sem tirar os pés do chão
    365 dias na missão
    Na bubuia, eu vou (2x)

    Subo o rio no contrafluxo
    À margem da loucura
    A fé que a vida após a morte,continua
    Eu vou na bubuia, eu vou (2x)

    Entoa uma toada em dia de noite escura,
    Na sequencia, na cadencia, na fissura,
    Eu vou na bubuia, eu vou suave bebendo agua na cuia
    Olho aberto, papo reto o peito como o samba
    Nenhum receio do lado negro da lua
    Vir me guiar, na bubuia
    Eu vou, na bubuia, eu vou..

    O destino é um mar onde vou me desfazer
    Com o pente a deslizar na correnteza do viver
    Na bubuia eu vou..
    Eu vou na bubuia eu vou..

    FSC Bulgaria January 2010





    There aren't any lyrics yet, so I'm translating what I hear

    Should I be alone?
    I won't let him
    Stay by my side
    Without loving me.

    I feel fear no more
    I understood more of myself
    And me being
    Here alone doesn't mean, that you can have me and play with me.

    Refrain:
    And everything will be clear again
    And everything will be fine again.
    You can't feel pressed with me
    Let me believe in you.

    I won't be able to forget you, but I'll have myself again.
    I won't be able to stay today, so that I can have myself again.

    I thought I could tell, no.
    I create fun for you
    You were very sweet,
    But you kinda hid someone else, I know
    Would you find out, (that I know),
    Yes, but not before you'd stop
    He kisses as if I'm me and she's someone else.

    Refrain (x2)



    Krista debuted on Bulgaria's musical scene in 2008 with her massive hit - Tova, koeto iskash (That, which you want), just after she finishes the National Music Academy, Pop and Jazz singing section, with excellent grades. A few months before that she wins a contest for vocal artists in February, competing with 180 finalists. "Tova, koeto iskash" quickly gains admiration from both musical critics and audience, but not only in Bulgaria. MTV shows her video 6 times on World Chart Express, beginning with 2nd place in their top 10 chart. The song also brings her a nomination from BG Radio in the category "Best debut for 2008" (not a very challenging one, since they don't include chalga singers in these nominations). Krista also wins the special Debut Award from the contest "Golden spring", organized by BNR (Bulgarian National Radio). "Imam" (I have) is the new single by Krista. Authors are B.O.Y.A.N. and Magga (Yes, the same, who did Desi's song from FSC December). Right now Krista is working on her first solo album, which will be released in the beginning of 2010. Musical producer is B.O.Y.A.N, and special names from the bulgarian non-chalga music scene, which also have a part in it are Magga, Lubo (the ex-lead vocal of "Te"), Beloslava (you might see her in OSC, although she's relatively young, LOL), Mariq Ilieva and others.


    There isn't much gossip about Krista, since she's new, not that famous and not that scandalous. The only gossip about her is being close friend to Mariq Ilieva (big pop-star), who has been protecting and helping her ever since the start of her career and that actually Mariq Ilieva's protection enabled Krista to become such a star and have so many investments in her. That's perfectly believable, since we know everything is about connections in any business, and since with that chalga look and voice Krista wouldn't manage to deal with the resistance from the music guild they normally provide for everyone and rise to this rank. Not that I mind of course
