Saw the theme was gay so wanted to show off the LESBIANS
We go through so many artists in PJSC every month, a lot just end up being a bit forgettable, but having a whole song about how to correctly pronounce her name definitely made Denise Chaila a memorable one dd
Did she ever actually say her own name correctly in that song? I remember a LOT of “it’s not Chilay, it’s not Chilala”…
I just checked and she actually doesn't. She lists about a bunch incorrect pronunciations, spells it out, but never actually says the name ff. Didn't really think that one through...
I wouldn't be surprised at another @ufint win!
I assume it’s either Chay-la or Chai-la. It would have helped if she listed at least one of those two as an incorrect pronunciation…
I remember the latter one being the more correct. Similar to Chai tea, but with la.
According to this interview, Chai-la should be the correct pronunciation.
I have seen repeated hyping of foreign language entries in this thread so I am going to be upset when I inevitably come like 3rd from last as always.
PJXtra sweetie, I'm so sorry.
That’s how I’ve been pronouncing it in my head. Phew.
Reveals in little less than an hour if everything runs smoothly!
My act performing their song at a Pride a few years back because #theme
I already said that the winner will be hard to predict, but I feel like Shy'm and Phelly do have great chances in particular.
And I'm not sure if or how Pauline's overexposure will affect her her placement here though..
Not me posting this accidental hint ddd.
Addison Grace is a 21 year-old trans masc singer/songwriter who uses he/they pronouns. He's release a series of singles over the past couple years, and released their debut EP, Immaturing back in May, which this song comes from. I came across the song by scrolling through my "For You" page on Tik Tok (which is mostly a mix of queer people making queer videos and book stuff, so my algorithm is perfect) and saw a video of him lip-synching to the bridge and final chorus and I was like "That sounds like something I'd love." Needless to say, it was. This song just really hit me on first listen and still does. I've been a hopeless romantic who loves love pretty much my whole life and would always wonder what that'd be like, to have that. Obviously for a long time, through media and real-life, I was shown what love and marriage was "supposed" to be like and how it's meant to play out for everyone. And even when I was younger, I'm not sure that idea ever felt right to me. Especially after realizing I was bi, I've been conflicted about balancing that "ideal" with what I mgiht want for myself. While no one over put pressure or expectations on me when it comes to this (thankfully), I did, and it was a bit of a struggle unraveling all of those expectations and freeing myself from them. And even though for a long time I've been able to say "I could marry anyone" just to acknowledge that women were still a possibility, I've been on a more recent journey of realizing I'm most likely homoromantic and just facing and accepting what that means for me, and fully letting go of the expectation of "You have to marry a woman". I also love that the song rejects the idea that you have to settle down when you're young, which has been even harder to let go of as an adult. I'm surrounded by so many people around my age who are in long-term relationships, having kids (though I personally wouldn't want to spend my 20s being a father ddd) and have been in these relationships for a few years. It's always made me feel like, "What am I missing? Why can't I have that?" Going to therapy thoughout last year helped me let go of my desparation for a relationship and really learn to be okay with being single and on my own and I've been able to really let go of those questions and just be okay with knowing that I'll find my person whenever I find them. And I just really love the writing here across the song as a whole. I'm just gonna list my favorite lines and why now ddd.
"What if I'm not meant to love and I've lost all my chosen ones being picky and obscene? What if love wasn't made for me?" Ouch. While I never regretted breaking up with someone, there had been a couple times that I've thought I jumped the gun and should have tried harder or maybe I shouldn't have because now I'm single. There was even a period of time that I thought I couldn't actually fall in love because the endings never hurt me like it seemed like they should have. That is, until last August dddd.
"I'm tired of waking up in my own head, staring for hours at my phone in bed, swiping left, swpiwing right. None of it seems right." Oof the relatability! I find a couple dating apps to just be really hollow and painful in the long-run, but thankfully I've realized it's just a matter of finding which app works best for you, but this still hits.
Yes, I realize that was the entire first verse. Shhh.
"I wanna see the world, feel it all." YES. I want this. Badly. Part of me wants to do it while I'm in love with someone, but I'm not trying to force it anymore and that feels so good.
"Love myself out of spite" Again, YES. I feel like there can be an idea pushed in media that you have to lose/sacrifice yourself to love someone when that shouldn't be the case. And I love spiting my demons ddd.
Okay. That's everything. Wasn't really planning on saying all of this but obviously I had a lot of thoughts on why I love this song so much and wanted to share with all of you. I really hope you liked the song and got something out of it.
Oh and obviously, I just absolutely love the bubblegum pop rock production. Can't help but jam and scream-sing along.
Also, shout out to @HarryEzra for sending a song who's title is the opposite of my song's and one I also deeply related to. When I first saw that, I laughed dddd.
Things are... not running smoothly. I'm trying to figure out how to get the scoreboards in descending order, and it's proving harder than I thought.
Sort Z—-> A on the Points Column
(At one point - you will also need to expand that column so you see it in full)
Tried doing that, the points come out in descending order, but they're not linked to the right songs.
Maybe select both columns? That probably won't do it.
PM me the sheet and I’ll have a look for you. The formula of where to grab the songs from may be wrong (happened the round I hosted with Melbs when the list linked to the Silver/Gold entries instead of the main songlist). Alternatively - is @imaduck currently online?
