Songs of Eastern Europe

Watching the video of the Eurovision 2017 festival, I found that the melodic quality Was very poor,flat songs,boring.The winning song was that of Portugal,nice music and lyrics.

In general, the songs look like "jenniferLopez/shakira/madona/katyperry/ U.S.A.style, they are supposed to be new songs but they are heard/already outdated, as if they had already been heard before.

The saying goes that "times are the times" and the times of different styles of music are different,well, then,let's go ahead and see what results/advances we will have in popular music around the world.

Two songs as an example to compare, although it says the comparisons are unpleasant.

"Flashlight" Paricipante song from Poland, sings Kasia Mos.

"Occidentali karma" Song paricipante of Italy, sings Francesco Gabbani.

Beautiful song from Italy.

Senza Fine(without end) .... Ornella Vanoni.

Any of these Polish songs are nicer than the song of the festival._

BTW Many of The songs that the composers of this forum have shown us have more melodic richness than most of the songs participating in this festival despite the orchestral arrangements.

Old folk song from Medjimurje region in Croatia...


Neither the sun, nor the moon
Neither the sun, nor the moon
The night is too dark. x2

I ask you, little turtledove,
Where have you been last night? x2

I was at the flower garden,
I planted flowers. x2

And you, my darling dove,
I had on my mind. x2

Plant me a wild rose
Under my window. x2

Let it grow high
High as it can be. x2

The higher it gets, more beautiful it will be,
To look at the rose. x2

Just don't stick it on someone's chest. x2

Keep the one rose for me
One that turns out to be the most beautiful one. x2

The one that will blossom
Under a green leaf. x2

Whos singing over there,
Кто там поет (песня) Ko to tamo peva (pjesma)

From the 1980 Film of the Same name,


https://youtu.be/pvnowyBqs8E

( Only Google translate Sorry )

Holy morning on Saturday
day coming from a distance
the poor of this region
They wait for the sun to be dreaming
They wait for the sun to be dreaming
Her, her, her, her

For Belgrade (for Belgrade)
company "Krstic" (firm "Krstic")
it's just the people are getting ready
there are all reasons for the trip
Only luck is not likely
Only luck is not likely
No, her

I'm a cripple from a kid
I'm singing all the bad songs
I'd love to, motherly soap
that all this is all I'm missing
that all this is all I'm missing
Her, her, her, her

A lot of guns from the pot
Our teacher does not
Spring is '41.
It's springtime, evil is getting ready
It's springtime, evil is getting ready
Her, her, her, her

Mother soap (mother soap)
what is happening (what is happening)
sad song is playing
death has come to light
there is no peace anymore
there is no peace anymore
peace, her

Above the field of the raven fly
and gathers his flocks
this bird ossuary
It's going to be a war
It's going to be a war
Her, her, her, her

Svaba jase (svaba jase)
black horse (black horse)
we shook Europe
our army attack is waiting
she prepared a little cannon
she prepared a little cannon
Cannon, her

He's been preparing for a long time
This crazy, passionate flight
he obeyed to destroy
and build a new world
and build a new world
Her, her, her, her

Earth shakes (earth shaking)
everything is rushing (everything is rushing)
and Sunday there is no more
fascist murky birds
everything is under destruction
everything is under destruction
Her, her, her

Google translation is hilarious :D made my day!
Here is mine translation, a bit more precise.

Its dawn on Saturday
The day flies in from a far
All poor people of this place
Are waiting for the Sun to shine

To Belgrade! With Krstich (surname but also mean “small cross”) bus company!
The people are just getting ready
They have all the reasons for this trip
I guess they just don’t have the luck

I am unfortunate since my childhood
From all that sorrow I sing songs
I would love so much, my dear mother
That all of this is just a dream

The gun bangs from clandestine
Our teacher is no more
It’s spring of 41.
It’s spring, the evil is getting ready

My dear mother.
What is happening?
I’m in a mood for playing a sad song
The death has come raiding
There is no peace here anymore

The raven flies above the fields
Gathering its flocks
This bad omen bird
Feels, there will be war

The Kraut (German) is riding his black horse
The whole Europe is shaking
Our army is waiting for the attack
They have prepared the small cannon

The Kraut was preparing for a long time
This crazy, terrible flight
He promised himself
To destroy
And build the new world.

The ground is shaking
All is tearing down
And there is no Sunday any more
The fascistic bleak birds
Have destroyed all under themselves

Something from Poland:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uw0VokW9-E8

Coma - Pasażer (Passenger):

English translation:

And if you'd want to go in the name of God,,
Leave a needless cross along the way ,
Love, hope - put them in your pockets and bread,
and then go wherever you want,
until the smallest way,
will touch your feet,
Then stand on the highest way,
and swallow wind in order to shout

I'm dancing, sky, sky's playing,
I'm singing, over-bluish time

And when you'll give away the warmest whisper
When you'll walk every little meaning,
You'll think that, yes, that the time is fulfilled,
That's the last way,
Seeking for your feet,
Now stand on the highest mountain,
And swallow wind in order to shout

I'm dancing, sky, sky's playing,
I'm singing, over-bluish time

And Coma - Lśnienie (Shining):

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=42HL8RkYMXI

n that dark house, I don't know how, lightly shadows have appeared
Then a sudden shake, we've been inerted by a firey shine we couldn't stand

X-rayed eyes, neonly x-rayed heads , rainbow hair
X-rayed being, ultraviolet tears, like an overexpoured film

We'll need to create a supernew x-rayed shape to give things some content
X-rayed world, absurdly ideal plan- they don't mean anything anymore

Dear brother, we are to noise on a -flicking-g pavement of the kings' city
Dear brother, we are to open our eyes

I know, we've been carrying elaborate projects of a safe farm of souls
I know how much trust has been left within us, when the forms have been killed by the content

There weren't less questions than now, when the righteous constructions have fallen
The taste of giving in to madness, of bending the infinity wasn't worse than that

Ooo...

I know, I know, now wee need to renew our power with entropy, freedom and hunger
I know how much trust has been left within us, when the forms have been killed by the content

I know, I know

We'll need to reubuild the universe on our own
But I'm glad to know that you understand, that you are

X-rayed eyes, neonly x-rayed heads , rainbow hair
X-rayed being, ultraviolet tears, like an overexpoured film

We'll need to create a supernew x-rayed shape to give things some content
X-rayed world, absurdly ideal plan- is not our business anymore
