Pacivision Song Contest - Submissions

PSC 2023 Generic Logo

It is time for Pacivision!

More than a year has passed since the contest in Gralois, Ikoania and therefore we can be excited to have a new iteration of this event in Stoinia soon! A song contest without songs does not make much sense though, therefore I present to you the successor to all OOC Pacivision topics: Pacivision Song Contest - Submissions!

What follows after…

After all entries have been submitted and it has been checked, whether they are conformant with the rules, there will be an allocation draw in which running order the entries will be presented to the audience in the Pacivision Song Contest 2023 topic. Once the event has been started off by our wonderful host @Maverick later this Summer (Note: maybe later, depends on some external factors), each roleplayer is supposed to post their (1) “Postcard”, (2) “Opening Card”/“Stage Ready Graphic”, (3) Lyrics and Performance Description in the order drawn by us through the allocation draw mentioned earlier. When all songs have been presented, voting will be conducted in this topic. The voting rules will be presented at a later date, but it is planned to introduce a “Rest of the World” vote additionally this year in order to open the roleplay event to TSP newcomers and gameside also.

And with that: Let’s begin this Pacivision season for real! Have fun! :slight_smile:

The national final 12 Punkte für Gianatla was held yesterday evening in Südtor’s Studio 8 featuring six songs by famous Gianlucian musicians (in Running Order):

Peter Wolf (opening act 2021) - Zukunft Pink (Alman: Future Pink)
Help - Planet of Blue (Austral/Alman)
Hater (representative 2021) - Klámstrákur (Old North Almannic: Filthy Boy)
JWvG - Ending (Austral)
R.E.V.O. - Weltuntergang (Alman: Doomsday)
Karl Birke & Heli 911 - Komet (Alman: Comet)

The Gianlucian public has clearly decided to send something in Alman this year. JWvG therefore had to be content enough with participating in the show, Help and Hater were put into 4th and 5th place. 3rd and 2nd place were given to Peter Wolf and the duo of Karl Birke & Heli 911 respectively, the latter being slightly surprised by their current chart single missing out on the win, which means Gianatla will be represented by band R.E.V.O. and their song “Weltuntergang” (Doomsday). The song already sparked controversy by being too political for Pacivision and some text lines likely needing to be rewritten. The band or BUS TV did not comment yet, if, when and how this will happen.

The season finale of FiHami’s own “Idola FiHami” (Austral: FiHami Idol, the first iteration of a yearly song competition held for 10 weeks on FiHami’s national television) has concluded with an idol-off between Embers and Ash and up-and-coming idol Shisufi “Su’i” Astali. Embers and Ash performed a new release for the crowd, “Take It”, which was received with fearsome praise. However, the experienced band could not stand against rising star Su’i, whose performance of Gemina Rocks’ “Blaze!” caused power outages across the island.


pictured is the international release of Su’i’s cover of Gemina Rocks’ “Blaze!” available on many streaming platforms, with the Finixi-Aikirani text.

With F50,000 in her pocket, this rising idol will be representing FiHami in this year’s Pacivision.

Country: FiHami

Song/Title: Catch Fire - Jenix

Lyrics (somewhat modified)

-Fi-Nix is a species of falcon native to the island of FiHami known for using sticks set on fire to hunt prey. The bird is sacred to Finixi and Aikirani cultures.-

Born in captivity, time’s your worst enemy
Their hurt is getting older
You try to keep your rage inside this gilded cage
Your heart is getting colder

Don’t you feel you’re slowly dying?
Day by day, they treat you like an animal
You gotta fight, you gotta start a riot
So let’s wake up your sleeping Fi-Nix

Catch fire, catch, catch fire
Wake up the sleeping Fi-Nix
And use (use) your mind

Catch fire, catch, catch fire
Wake up the sleeping Fi-Nix
Do you feel (feel) alive?
Don’t let them keep you down

Do you know the reason why
Why they never let you sleep at night?
And you’re running 'round in circles
Their frozen fingertips against your burning lips
A fight for your freedom

You gotta fight, you gotta start a riot
So let’s wake up your sleeping Fi-Nix

Catch fire, catch, catch fire
Wake up the sleeping Fi-Nix
And use (use) your mind

Catch fire, catch, catch fire
Wake up the sleeping Fi-Nix
Do you hear (hear) their cry?
Don’t let them get you down

Come on, baby, come on, baby, burn tonight
One step into the jungle won’t hurt your mind
The fire will get them, baby, don’t you know?
Rebel now, watch them run

Now run, baby, run, baby, run tonight
One step into the jungle won’t hurt your mind
The fire consume them, baby, they couldn’t run
From your rage, we have won
We have won

Catch fire, catch, catch fire
Wake up the sleeping Fi-Nix
And use (use) your mind (use your mind)

Catch fire, catch, catch fire
Wake up the sleeping Fi-Nix
Do you feel (feel) alive?
Now you’re free, it’s victory

The fires shall rage on
Don’t let them get you down
