New Floor interview in German media, hopefully the translation works for you:

"Some people when they hear the word 'metal' they go, 'No, I don't want that!'

Elisa Eberle - 17 April 2022

The same German interview about Sing Meinen Song was picked up by other media. So nothing new here, but I picked a few quotes.

Floor Jansen: She didn't even know the other "Swap Concert" participants

April 23, 2022

by Elisa Eberle

https://www-prisma-de.translate.goog/news/stars/Sing-meinen-Song-2022-Floor-Jansen-kannte-die-anderen-gar-nicht,38153129?_x_tr_sl=auto&_x_tr_tl=en&_x_tr_hl=en&_x_tr_pto=wapp

Some highlights:

  • The biggest problem was the language. It wasn't just about singing the lyrics well, I also had to understand the story being told. Setting the songs to music a bit heavier wasn't that difficult, thanks to the band that is on "Sing mein Song". However, it took me a while to find my own style as the songs were all pop songs. But now I love all the songs I got to sing on the show.
  • When they asked me if I would like to take part in "Sing meine Song" and if I could speak German, I immediately answered "yes" to both questions. It was only afterwards that I remembered: "Shit, I can't speak any German!" I live in Sweden and have been learning Swedish for five or six years. At the moment I speak even more Swedish than Dutch or English. That's why I had to really work hard for "Sing meine Song" to learn German within a few months. When we were in South Africa, I heard and spoke a lot of German, so every day it got a little bit better.
  • We [Nightwish band members] had almost no contact at all. We didn't speak to each other. [🤔] Well I'm different. I'm a woman and I'm Dutch, so I thought: Okay! Then I focused on my solo career. I did a lot of social media and wrote new music. With Nightwish we organized a virtual show in which we were transported into a fantasy world via a green screen. That was wonderful, but only lasted a few days. So I'm all the happier to slowly start again and to see my Finnish brothers more again.

Floor is on right now, I don't speak German but if I manage to record the thing I'll post it for you to watch later. The audio is already available on YouTube.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3O9Ed6F-Mp4

Edit: And all the original videos are available here, no need to record anything!

The original artist's video (Clueso):

Wow, the original song is very slow and melancholic. Floor really dialed it up to 11. 😮

I'm really looking forward to Floor's next week performance. The song she chose to cover sounds pretty emotional, even though I don't understand a single word.

SDP - Unikat: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7wVlLR4pYjg

I'm sure she can make this memorable!

Those SDP guys were properly wrecked, as they should! 😁 Although it was a nicely restrained cover.

Here's the English translation of Floor's performance, you need to turn on the subtitles manually.

Sheeeesh...Incredible performance. 

And a very wordy song, I don't know if her German is good but it must have been hard memorizing all those lyrics in a language she barely spoke a few months ago! 😮

Wow, I wasn't sure at first, a very wordy song and not very melodic, but the last minute was something else with Floor really showing off her range. 😮

I'm not sure I like Elif's original songs, but I love her voice and her covers are great, she is my favourite singer next to Floor so far -- but I'm not in love with her original material. Mind you, I've only watched 2 or 3 of her videos so maybe I just didn't pick her best hits.

Thanks! They all agreed it's a difficult song even for native speakers, those fast and long rapped lyrics.

Looking forward to Elif singing Fire in a few weeks, but I would have liked her to sing a Nightwish song instead. 🙂

A few quick comments on this batch of songs:

 

Floor Jansen – Call You Home https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5poW3TQiiqY

  • This is one where Floor turns the emotion up to 11, and it makes for a much better song IMO. Nothing against Kelvin Jones, he's just not pouring his heart in it! 😁

Floor Jansen – Mauern https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vB-1_3HhB5k

  • I love how this one turns slowly to metal, and German sounds especially well suited to metal singing. Can't wait to see this one on video. And it does makes me wonder how many of these songs (if any) will make it to Floor's solo concerts.

Floor Jansen – Anfassen  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LgOwXeHNTCE

  • Nice one, the band sound certainly more at ease with rock/metal than the Beste Zangers guys!

 

The Nightwish/Northward/Floor covers:

Lotte – Noise https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NBEHz6XemEk 

  • I like it! The minimalist dance music arrangements and singing are very much to my liking! Reminds me of the DJ Orkidea remixes, with a voice to fit.

Clueso – Sleeping Sun https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iHxNEoct_j4

  • What the vittu is this? I mean, the song is okay but is Floor supposed to be awed/flattered by this? 🤔

Kelvin Jones – Storytime https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5s5oGYEdXFk  ☮️

  • A version that Crewish could have come up with! The spoken part is a bit weird, but fun nevertheless.

Elif – Fire https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ms4QoKD6ljM  🔥

  • I like this woman and the way she sings -- here and elsewhere -- but I would have expected something further removed from Floor's performance.

Johannes Oerding – While Love Died https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jXEKOZO5_mc  🎹

  •  100% for the effort, but I can't say this is for me.

SDP – Amaranth https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C8NKlLIPQ4M  ⚒️

  • Another version worthy of Crewish! Pretty good.

 

The duets:

SDP & Floor Jansen – Amaranth (Sing Meinen Song, Vol. 9)  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gv8vIUctpbo

  • I love how Floor goes for a harsher sound on this version than how she normally sings live. Looking forward to the video!

Floor Jansen & Kelvin Jones – Call You Home (Sing Meinen Song, Vol. 9)  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BcLMCt5qttQ

  • Nice duet, but honestly Floor's solo version is perfect as it is. I would have liked a duet with Elif or Lotte, but it was not going to be.
