What Makes You Think You’re The One

Show notes for the 244th Mużika Mod Ieħor podcast featuring music by performers from or in Malta. This is a special edition to coincide with the Malta Eurovision Song Contest 2011.

I was a judge on the official panel selecting last year’s entry from Malta to the Eurovision Song Contest, so I couldn’t comment publicly about any of the songs nor did I present any of them in my Mużika Mod Ieħor series of podcasts, ahead of the contest. In any case, it was hard to pick enough decent songs for a whole podcast last year. However, I’m glad to say that it’s certainly not the case this year. Mercifully, there are several songs I’d happily include on any edition of the MMI podcast. So here are five I’ve picked for this week’s podcast. I’ve already commented on each of these songs on my blog, so I don’t really have anything to add…at least not just yet.

  • Kurt CallejaOver and Over
  • Wayne MicallefEverybody Sing
  • AmberCatch 22
  • BaklavaMoon Dance
  • Kelly SchembriLove Me Like You Love Your Money
  • Pressed to pick the other 11 singers/songs I think will make it to next Saturday’s final, my list looks like this (in order of appearance at the semifinal):

    Claudia FanielloMovie in my Mind
    Klinsmann Coleiro & Ben DarmaninThis Love
    Eleanor CassarHypnotized
    RaquelaIf I Could Do It All Again
    SophieLove to Love You
    Petra ZammitUnintentional
    Glen VellaOne Life
    J.AnvilTopsy Turvy
    Fabrizio FanielloNo Surrender
    AllyNumb
    Richard EdwardsFinally

    Although the next MMI podcast will be a “normal” edition, featuring some of the new releases coming my way from musicians from or in Malta, and therefore not related to the national Eurovision selection, I’ll most probably post an entry in my blog with some comments ahead of or immediately after the final. The place to look for my Eurovision related blog entries is right here.
