    Oi, Sade...really! I am shocked. Breaking the rules on the first day. Completely without the knowledge and support of the Bosnian Dictator. ""
    Oh well, I guess that means KARGO WINS!

    Please, make that 3 for Seksendort- the ney, the guitar(ist), Tuna's voice...just too perfect. (the other vote is from Milena...I know she likes theirs better too; I can even post the proof if you want.)
    I was really surprised though...I think I liked Sezen's better than Seb's.

    i preferred sebnem's version.... she has, by far, the best voice out of any of them.

    First let me make two small observations.

    1. Strange as it may seem, I frequently feel that Sezen The Empress is rarely the best performer of her own songs and this next battle, proposed by Sade, shows that again (I guess and hope that this is what Ercü meant and not Sezen's songs ...) .

    2. I liked the ney and guitars in Grup84's rendition but for me Tuna's vocals worked well only in the verse. IMO he failed miserably at the chorus - he's fighting hard here to hit the right notes and thus becomes completely emotionless and powerless.

    The only version I listened to the last note was - my beloved Şebnem's!
    And I'm offering my voice to her with great pleasure.

    So, collecting the votes so far (Sade, Parti, Milena via Parti, Nere - nice to c ya here!, and myself) we have:

    Seksendört: 3
    Şebnem: 2
    Sezen: 0

    I was interested to read this...I remember talking about this song with Milena and both of us had the same opinion...The lyrics were already so dramatic and I think Sebnem's voice was a little too "hysterical"...it was like too much for me with this song.


    As for where Sade is... I suppose even butterflies have to sleep sometimes.
    Thanks for keeping score in the meantime Paul!

    You weren't the only one who was surprised. I really liked Seb's version. I would have voted for her, but 84's is kind of special to me. I think now it's my turn to secretly want another version to win.

    Seksendort's version is the best, I've only heard the other's versions just now, I'm used to grup 84's more, but i have to say that I liked Sebnam's better than Sezen.

    Which prosperous days refused;
    As herbs, though scentless when entire,
    Spread fragrance when they’re bruised.

    When Silver Moon does come back, I am curious which one he likes best...cos I know he likes all three of these musicians.
    But really, for me 84's is better by far. I'm glad they win.

    So we have 1 victory each for maNga, Tarkan, Kargo, and 84...

    Yes, but...only if he'll follow the rules better than Sade. ""

    Do you have the next battle in mind? Perhaps a Turkish/Arabic one?

    Ermmm, Sim, there might other options, too:

    1. Liked once and now still likes.
    2. Liked once and now likes only a little.
    3. Liked once and now doesn't like at all.

    You never know with Moon.

    Good idea - there are quite a number of songs that could battle!
    Also Greek-Turkish looks very promissing.

    But we have to drag this VeryLazy Persian Guy here 'cuz he knows so many songs and their covers, too - like the one with Sertab/Kalogero.

    ROFL...He's impossible, that guy. But thank god he is not blunt at all...cos that would just be too tempestuous of him.

    Greek and Arabic and Persian covers would certainly be news to me...as I'm assuming mainly pop songs would be included in that. I'm interested.

    Yes, you really did.
    And go for it! I'm curious what you're thinking of and glad you're here.
