    Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

    That was harder than I would've thought.

    I can't feel the Greek singer is out of breath here, it's rather his vocal technique or manner. He sings longer passages on one breath as compared to his Turkish counterpart. But the colour of his voice and, especially, the quality/sound of his Greek left me sadly indifferent :-((( After listening to so many fantastic Turkish vocalists this production was sooo lacking. And he's certainly not of the same level as Notis Sfakianakis, either.

    The song in Arabic features best vocals and Parti's right about the fact that Arabic matches this song best! But then ... those background vocals are so annoying. Also the sound of instruments is very artificial/electronic - a lot of studio applied, few natural instruments used. This seems to be quite frequent in Arab songs; at least those I had a chance to listen to very often had the same, artificial sound created by the studio engineers.

    The Turkish song looks like the most balanced to me. The vocalist is not Tarkan or Yusuf Guney (they would've made SOMETHING of it). But there's duduk in the finale and the song is overally pleasant to my ear; even his moderate vocals are fine with me. Plus - call me a total pervert - I love watching Turkish videos of the sort :-))) When my Turkish craze started, I was slightly amused about this manner of shooting videos but once we've established with my friend, that a true Turkish man is a man dying out of love, then everything fell right into place. Plus plus - the video reminds me of "Sari, sari"!!!!! Abidin is not Mahsun (vocally and in terms of personality) but he's quite a dish so it was nice to watch.

    So,

    Abidin-1
    Fadel-3
    Sotis-1


    PS. Is Ercu voting???

    I think it's safe to say that Fadel wins that one...

    I hope you don't mind, but I'm gonna start the next one now. :shyface:

    This battle is soooo dramatic :P because it's between musicians who work together frequently and must be close friends. Different lyrics but same song really.

    Hmm belki its just me, but I didnt really like the guys voice that much, even though I like the way greek sounds (<- and Simona even though I smile when I blush, I dont think it quite catches how red I can get )

    Anyways ayiim, your orders have been adhered to video added!

    Hmmm now that you mention it...i'm off to hear a few arabic songs and see if they're all like that, I dont think so...but maybe i've just grown too used to it? I'll come back to you (<- this is meant to be a wink if you can somehow detect any eyes to start with)

    And sorry ayiim, didnt like the greek one that much

    Please do and report back to me. :P

    I don't know if it's cos I'm sick and my ears are all broken, but the Gripin one sounds fuzzy to me...I listened to a couple different videos and they all sound this way to me...if someone can find one that is clearer in sound, please...
    And if it's just my ears, hit me in the head with a tencere, Sade or Viva.
    Thank you.

    Parti, I'm hitting you with the ATL's tencere, as requested :-)))).
    The beginning, indeed, is fuzzy in all the recordings I found.
    I'll check the CD at home to be sure.

    And as regards your sickness :-( - Gecmis olsun! :-)

    Definitely Gripin +1

    So,
    Emre - 0
    Gripin - 1

    Hmm, that's the one I originally posted too, but to my ears, it sounds worse. :confusedface-oldstyle: My cd of it doesnt sound fuzzy like that.

    I can't decide...I heard Gripin's long before I heard Emre's...and I loved it when I first heard it. But now I am like SpecialSilverMoon and I don't like it so much anymore. And I didn't like Emre's at first cos I loved Gripin's but now I like Emre's more. Gripin's is almost too dramatic to me, too "whiny" . :shybigsmiley:

    P.S. Of course hes a scorpio...who isnt these days????? :P

    The problem with this "like" button is it always gives a new "notification" and then I get hopeful that it's one of my dear dear Scandinavian friends writing a private message to me, praising my sanity. ""

    Viva, Sade, vote, so I can give at least one sympathy vote to garip Emre.

    Gripin-2
    Emre-0

    Sohuda's voting could be vital here.

    Wow, exactly my thoughts. I loved Gripin's song for so long, and kind of grew tired of it. So now when I listen to it it sounds kinda 'whiny' and dramatic to me too. Emre's is newer to me, and right now I like his song more. =D
