    ICELAND 2012 - Gr閠a Sal髆e & J髇si - Never Forget



    Performed by: Gr閠a Sal髆e & J髇si
    Lyrics by: Gr閠a Salome Stef醤sd髏tir
    Composed by: Gr閠a Salome Stef醤sd髏tir
    Language: English

    [media=ICELAND 2012: Greta Salome & Jonsi - Never Forget]308[/media]





    She憇 singing softly in the night
    Praying for the morning light
    She dreams of how they used to be
    At dawn they will be free.

    Memories they haunt his mind
    Save him from the endless night
    She whispers warm and tenderly
    Please come back to me.

    And when the golden sun arises far across the sea
    The dawn will break as darkness fades forever we憀l be free.

    Never forget what I did, what I said
    When I gave you all my heart and soul.
    Morning will come and I know we憀l be one
    Cause I still believe that you憀l remember me.

    She mourns beneath the moonlit sky
    Remembering when they said goodbye
    Where憇 the one he used to know
    It seems so long ago.

    And when the golden sun arises far across the sea
    The dawn will break as darkness fades forever we憀l be free.

    Never forget what I did, what I said
    When I gave you all my heart and soul.
    Morning will come and I know we憀l be one
    Cause I still believe that you憀l remember me!

    Ooohhh

    Never forget what I did, what I said
    When I gave you all my heart and soul.
    Morning will come and I know we抣l be one
    Cause I still believe that you抣l remember me!
    Oh I still believe that you抣l remember me!
    Oh I still believe that you抣l remember me!

    I think that countries should be allowed to use English in ESC if they want to, but if they originally plump for their own native language then it's kinda lame to change to English. So basically I agree that there should be a restriction on that basis, but I'm up for free choice of language.

    So basically you do agree with my point then? I am not pro a full restriction, however I believe that if a song has been chosen in a particular language it shouldn't be allowed to be translated to another for use in Eurovision.

    Yeah basically. It seemed like you wanted the strict language rule back though which I'm against

    Oh I see, well I started watching this contest in mid 90's myself, I think 1997 was my fist contest, so I remember the switch from language rule to none (restriction to free choice) and also the switch from only juries to televoting (and back to a part- jury system).

    I was obviously too young and not born to have seen the majority of the contests, however as the major fan I am I have listened to all Eurovision entrants from 1956-

    No, like I wrote I would like it, but in the meantime I don't want it, however I do believe some restrictions should be made (for instance the one we agree on) because right now it's ridiculous.

    Yup, especially since I believe all Icelandic NF participants are obliged to sing in Icelandic during the show, right? In which case it seems strange that R赩 would allow them to change it into English for Eurovision. There's not really much point imposing such a restriction in your own national final if you're gonna lift it for the main contest

    Albania's also a big culprit when it comes to this sort of thing...

    Anyway, I'm still not entirely sold on Mundu eftir m閞 as it's not really my taste, but I can objectively appreciate the fact it's in Icelandic which adds an extra dimension to it. If they changed it to plain ol' English it'd lose that :/

    Yeah exactly, this is the most odd thing.

    To use language restriction in your own selection, but then translate it to ESC anyways, it makes no sense imo. If a country has chosen an entry in their own (or whatever language) with or without a national language restriction, they should simply stick to that choice!

    ^ A-lister I love that rule! I wish we could have it someday! I always said that if you choose a song in your language then keep it that way but I never thought that could be set as a rule? How do we send suggestions like this to EBU?

    We will keep spreading our disco bacteria!

    Thank you

    I mean it's as we say in Swedish "K鰌a grisen i s鋍ken", if you vote for one entry you vote for everything that comes with that entry (including the language of it), it's unfair to all the voters to translate it and partly make a new song out of that. For instance I just LOVE "Det g鰎 ont" and I think it's one of our best entries ever, but I can't stand the English version though and I feel cheated of my vote and support basically because what we send to ESC was actually something else.

    Well, send an e-mail to them, not that they care though
