    Hi piimapoika, nice to hear of you, but what content did you actually post up there, because it is banned over here in Germany, and may be in other states, too?

    It was part of a TV programme to select the Finnish entry for the Eurovision Song Contest. Marko Maunuksela singing Synkän maan tango, or Tango of the Land of Melancholy. It was posted by Rokaile95, who has posted a lot of other stuff that seems to have originated on Finnish TV. Definitely not pornographic or violent, and if it infringes copyright, why should it be viewable in one EU country and not in another? Other Youtubers have uploaded the same thing.

    If I hadn't been informed, I would never have thought that was a tango. Throughout the first half, at least, I heard no syncopation. I didn't know there was a bandoneon until I saw him sitting on stage.

    Re: Marko Maunuksela "Synkän maan tango"

    ..maybe the lawyers of the national media companies only check the posters of their own country.
    The version posted by ESC2011Germany works. Interesting song, and a good piece for an international or finnish tanda.

    It´s no canonic argentine tango, but the constant slow marching in 4/4 signature is characteric for any tango. Some passages reminded me a little bit of Ewan McGregor´s "Roxanne" from the "Moulin Rouge" OST.

    A marching, 4/4 signature is characteristic of lots of music that is not tango. That, in itself, is not sufficient to define a tango.

    Also Grabriel´s "Book of Love" is a Tango for me http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6nZGv8VTBVE

    Don´t let Argentines define, what Tango is ! You see, I differentiate between Tango and Tango argentino.
