Round 21 – J

My 15j-th entry – bijdrage
My first entry: 28-08-2014 : 15-G

Hi Everybody, a very good- morning / -afternoon / -evening!

The lady I want to introduce to you today is called: Joan Franka… The Dutch people met her in 2012 as a participant in The Voice. Although stranded in the 4th live-show… there were people who thought she would be able to win the Euro Vision Songcontest, so she went to Bakoe in Azerbeidjan. There was much controverse about her, specifically originated by her headdress… So no further adue… maybe you remember her from 2012, maybe you don’t…

Have a splendid, ♥-warming ABC-day / – week!
♫ M e l ☺ d y ♫

      Indeed…. I have to be honest, I would not have chosen her and this song to be the ambassadour for The Netherlands in the Eurovision Song Contest…

    I used to watch Eurovision when I was younger but stopped end 1990, it changed too much and I didn’t like it anymore; The worst was this German “Guido” it made a joke of the whole thing and that was it for me !

    A great performance, – her headdress would not be out of place here in the Similkameen at the First Nation’s Pow Wows.

  • Joy  schreef ~ wrote:

    No don’t remember her, despite the feathers. Nice voice. As Roger mentioned Cher she would rock that look as I seem to remember she had Cherokee heritage.

    I got interested about her choice of headdress. I found an interview with her in which she said that the headdress represents her child memories of playing Cowboys and Indians with a friend. And that the song was about those memories. Now it has me curious as to what she was singing cause I couldn’t understand her if she was singing in English.

    • Melody  schreef ~ wrote:

      Hi Su-sieee… Yes Now you mention it, I remember that interview to,

      The lyrics are:
      I was five, you were three
      We were dancing in the street
      And you looked just like an angel
      You looked up and saw the sky
      Saw the birds and wondered why
      They can fly away so high?

      In the morning I would wake
      and my heart just couldn’t wait
      To play in your backyard
      In the evening I would go
      Telling you I love you so
      When I couldn’t wait to see you again

      (Chorus)
      It`s you and me
      And everybody out there
      And I can see that everybody knows
      About you and me but I don’t really care for it
      I can see that everybody knows
      About us

      We grew up knowing love
      Thanking God up above
      That we could be together forever
      We would never say goodbye
      Cause we promised, you and I
      But our love couldn’t handle time

      And I see you walking by
      My heart is wondering why
      We don`t play around no more
      Such a shame we have no time
      They were wrong and we were right
      I still love you
      And in my mind

      It’s you and me
      And everybody out there
      And I can see that everybody knows
      About You and me
      But I don’t really care for it
      I can see that everybody knows
      About us

      So I’m lying in bed
      Thinking about the old days
      Thinking about it all and how
      it ends sometimes
      Was it wrong or Right
      Or was I good enough

      It’s you and me
      And everybody out there
      And I can see that everybody knows
      About you and me

      And everybody out there
      And I can see that everybody knows
      About You and me
      But I don’t really care for it
      I can see that everybody knows
      About us
