  1. Great news! And it was really touching how the whole world worked together to help in the rescue! This was humanity at its best!

    North Macedonia

    Still, bala isn't candy here lol . And yes, we understand you perfectly. It's just a Portuguese thing to be open to other languages (even if in this case it's the same one) and cultures.

    North Macedonia

    https://www.priberam.pt/dlpo/macedónia Despite speaking the same language, Portugal and Brazil have some words with different meanings. Celular, for example; out there is a mobile phone, while here the word is just related to cells (science). Bala is candy there, while here is a projectile. And the list goes on and on.

    North Macedonia

    Nope, not here. What we stude about Greece (or at least how it was studied back in the day) is just the Mythology (and the Olympic Games), Philosophers, Art and Democracy. Basically, just the big picture of Ancient Greece. Subjects like Macedonia and Magno are too particular and specific and so are not explored (if anything, he may be mentioned in a page or two of the History book, but not a chapter; while the region/country itself only appears briefly in the 20th century theme). If one goes to college and choose a course that deals with History, Policy, Geography, etc, Macedonia and Magno will get a deeper attention, for sure; but in the school years before that they aren't front line topics at all.

    North Macedonia

    I saw on the news that they will change Macedonia's name, but I'm not that informed about the drama that is going on with Greece and neither did I know that it has been happening for 3 decades. To now start calling the country by North Macedonia is strange, specially cuz (for the international general public) there isn't a South one to even justify that distinction, but everybody will get used to it as time goes by. The Greeks should relax, they won't lose a place in History because of their neighbor nation's name; in fact, whenever I studied Greece at school Macedonia was never part of the theme, the first time I heard about it was in the 20th century subject and always as a "background character". But anyway, I prefer Macedonia (without the North) as the country's name (in Portuguese, macedonia means fruit salad lol).
  6. Again? - Grammys - DWT Music - CT Music Inferno - S&ST She's Not Me - MDNAT Turn Up The Radio - RHT Rebel Heat Weren't these enough? Do you really need more? What if we all accept her to sacrifice Like A Prayer (and Like A Virgin, for the matter) next time around in order to get the world premiere of hits like This Used To Be My Playground, Bad Girl, I'll Remember, Nothing Really Matters, American Pie or Love Profusion? Cuz, you know, that said classic has been performed in 9 live shows/tours, while these ones have been performed in, well, a shameful 0. How are they suppose to get bigger in popularity if she ignores them time after time, and performs over and over a hit that, in the long run, makes her look like a one hit wonder artist?
  7. A Fado segment would look to much like the Latin one from Rebel Heart Tour as the black dress code is quite similar; unless she goes all White Queen re-inventing its look. But Like A Prayer, Secret and Frozen would fit it and sound great with some fado-ish chords. I'm here for that. An Age of Discovers (as it is related to Portugal) theme would be cool and there are so many layers that she could explore from it: the odyssey adventure, the water/ocean as a home and bridge, the supernatural creatures against men, the scary and dark nights, the first contact with other cultures, etc. So much potential. A similar theme that I've always wanted her to explore are the Gulliver's Travels. I know that she will never do it lol but it is such a popular book and there's so much human nature on it. In one place he was the smalllest creature and felt alone, in other he was the biggest one and felt that he was being used, then there's a misogyny flying island full of "geniuses" and in the end he met animals smarter and logical than men. Those are a bunch of very actual themes.

    New Album Means New Tour

    I believe that they chose that pic because TOAC was her last "tour" so its mention links to a recent past; not because they know the tour's schedule or something official like that.

    Add one song: VT setlist

    I was looking at the non-performed songs that could be the answer to this thread's question and Think Of Me popped up right there, after Borderline, as you have it. It would be the Mad Section lol: Angel - Belief in nonexistent beings Gambler - Megalomaniac syndrome Borderline - Personality disorder Think Of Me - Intellectual functioning
  10. I don't get it why Madonna ignores Sorry, Get Together, Jump and all the other COADF songs (minus Hung Up) when it comes to setlists. Are them all songs about Guy Ritchie so she avoid to perform them? Did she sign some Kabballah contract back then that forbid her to sing them in more than one tour? Seriously, there's so much potential with all these songs that even if the grand public is not aware of them, they are catchy enough to grab the crowd's attention. The singles, for example: Sorry can fit any concert's section, whatever its theme is; Get Together is Holiday V.2, basically; and Jump have a hidden feminist message that links well to the world's state (my sisters and me, my sisters and me). Yet, when it comes to COADF, she only sings Hung Up (and even it was ignored in S&ST 2009 and Rebel Heart Tour). Ok, it was a huge hit if compared to the ones in question, but it also makes COADF the only studio album that have the same song representing it on tours , over and over again. Even less popular works of her had more luck after their original tours: I'm Breathless (BAT) = I'm Going Bananas (TGST) ) + Hanky Panky (RIT) + Vogue (TGST/RIT/S&ST/MDNAT/RHT) Bedtime Stories (No tour) = Secret (DWT) + Human Nature (DWT/S&ST/MDNAT) + Bedtime Story (RIT) + Take A Bow (RHT) American Life (RIT) = Die Another Day (S&ST) + Nobody Knows Me (MDNA) Hard Candy (S&ST) = Give It 2 Me (MDNA) + Candy Shop (MDNA/RHT) MDNA (Ignored on RHT, but that was the follow up tour, so its to soon to judge) We have to go to an obscure show like Tears Of A Clown to find other COADF's song being sang live - Like It Or Not - and that was just for 1 (one!) date lol. Is Madonna not fond of COADF anymore? Why does this happen with a recording that was so successful upon its release? Did she give these songs all the energy/talent/love that she could back in 2006 and so now there's nothing/zero/nada left?

    Eurovision thread

    No, it's not. I joked, but I kinda like it. It reminds me of Annie Lennox's discography. Meanwhile, in an inverse universe, Portugal was the winner last night and fans congratulate the singer:

    Eurovision thread

    For attention. He said " We demand freedom. War is not peace". Surie attitude is the best. It's all "That's it, my song is bad and someone just stole the mic from me while I was singing. I'm done. Bye. (*start clapping*)!"

    Eurovision thread

    Cyprus is my moral winner!
  14. I see nothing wrong with that performance, just an artist and an audience having a good time. To sing in key is overrated tbh, leave that for Opera and stuff like that. FM music is all about melodies, lyrics and attitude.
