Apparently Moldova has better NF (music-wise) than other West nations. Hah. And kudos (???) for them for making live auditions and showing them for ALL of the submitted songs. Imagine Sweden doing this. 😀

There are strong songs. I like the ethno in some of them, it’s quite good mixed (“Energy”) even though nowadays that may not pass.

I’ll vote for Vlad Ray & Flux Light, just because.

Note: lovely girls here. Note #2: bad English detected – Tatiana.

@Carmen. Okay, thanks. I knew that, but didn’t know that “Romanian” was now acceptable until you inspired me to do some homework 🙂

Well this isn’t my year for picking songs, since I thought Paralela 47 was a great choice…it’s lively and fun…and not popular at all!

Zolan, Moldovan language doesnt exist. In Moldova the official language is Romanian.

@Robyn. An excellent sentiment, I like the way you think.
Doinita certainly is due for a win, but I’m not so thrilled by “Energy.”
“Asculta-ma, tacere” excites me most, and I’m sure it would warm that taxi driver’s heart as well, particularly being in Moldovan.

“The Way I Do” is somewhat behind, but I do like a dash of DnB.
“Turn the Tide” is very nice, too.

“The Way I Do” would have to be my favourite. Don’t see what everyone loves in “Energy”.

About a year ago a friend of mine was in a taxi in Christchurch, New Zealand (and Eurovision isn’t really a thing in NZ). The taxi driver was Moldovan and he had a some sort of fancy video player in his cab and proceeded to play all the Moldovan entries from the previous few years, with great pride and excitement. My friend was a bit horrified by it all, but when I learned of his adventure I was so envious. Anyway. My requirement for Moldova is a song that will make that taxi driver even more proud of his home… Read more »
