Today my newspaper De Volkskrant had one page about Dutch female singer I didn't know yet, Jesca Hoop, although she just has released her 5th album Memories Are now. Something for SBB'ers, I think. The song 'The lost sky' is a protest song against men who don't communicate. That's nearly every man, isn't it?

Stashu & Sheila should do a whole show together!

I had a soft spot for "Las Mosquitas"+ Argentina.

Faye Wong! Though I really dug the retro rock of the Sophisticated Boom Boom.

This is London calling. Here are the votes from the British jury. Faye Wong, China, La Chine, 12 points, douze points

they look like Dexy's polish cousins
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:38pm Passaic River Blues:

I am willing to bet this song is about maintaining a positive attitude when working with your peers in a Warsaw factory. Also, the Dixieland bridge is unimpeachable. I enjoyed some previous entries more, but that was a worthy entry.

And what's so wrong with Bonkers, ncjay?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:40pm Michael 98145:

We hope to hear some of these great artists on future Boom Boom sessions!

My fav is Ornella Vanoni's "L'appuntamento"
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:43pm Passaic River Blues:

Damn, reggaeton and bachata-inflected pop? Very cool. I LOVE all the work Sheila puts into programming these shows.
Avatar 5:44pm The Contessa:

Very good choice @SandyEG

Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:03pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

Stand up all victims of oppression
For the tyrants fear your might
Don't cling so hard to your possessions
For you have nothing if you have no rights
Let racist ignorance be ended
For respect makes the empires fall
Freedom is merely privilege extended
Unless enjoyed by one and all

So come brothers and sisters
For the struggle carries on
The internationale
Unites the world in song
So comrades come rally
For this is the time and place
The international ideal
Unites the human race

Let no one build walls to divide us
Walls of hatred nor walls of stone
Come greet the dawn and stand beside us
We'll live together or we'll die alone
In our world poisoned by exploitation
Those who have taken now they must give
And end the vanity of nations
We've but one earth on which to live

And so begins the final drama
In the streets and in the fields
We stand unbowed before their armor
We defy their guns and shields
When we fight provoked by their aggression
Let us be inspired by like and love
For though they offer us concessions
Change will not come from above
