It is no exaggeration to say that English is the lingua franca of the known universe. In English, the title of this song renders "Your Decision"; its full title as submitted to the 2009 Eurovision Song Contest by Andorra is "La Teva Decisió (Get A Life)".
This has to be one of the most eclectic songs ever recorded. It has music by Rune Braager, Marcus Winther-John, Lene Dissing, (the performer) Susanne Georgi & (sister) Pernilla Georgi; lyrics by Josep Roca Vila - in both Catalan and English. Marcus Winther-John lives in Denmark, and Susanna Georgi was born in Denmark, although she speaks ultra-fluent English.
"La Teva Decisió" is easy on the ear, but didn't quite make the grade; the tiny principality first entered Eurovision only in 2004.

Until December 5, 1998, a song had to be issued as a single to make the Hot 100. Aaliyah's "Try Again" was the first tune to top the chart based on airplay alone, without any sales figures being included.
"Here Comes Your Man" is the closest the Pixies came to a hit in America. It was rumored to be about a drug dealer, but Black Francis says it's just a story about some hobos who travel by train and die in an earthquake.
