Following our monthly tradition we offer you 10 albums. Some are highly recommended but some others, well... you better try and make your personal opinion.
1. Berlin by Jimmy Martin
Jimmy Martin presents his Best Of. Under the title of Berlin, get to know all the stories behind this great compilation in the interview he gave to us: http//www.eurovisionontop.com/apps/blog/show/44242858-jimmy-martin-berlin-and-the-fooftball-players
2. Armat by Sirusho
This is the album in which Sirusho is still trying to make connections with their ancestrals. Full of ethnic sounds it is an album to keep fot he future as a reference in armenian music.
3. For you I'll wait by Jill Johnson
Jill Johnson continues her country travel inside of the american culture. She is probably the most american ESC singer and with yesterday election results we wonder how she will feel as a european citizen.
4. Together by Michael Ball and Alfie Boe
Michael Ball & Alfie Boe join forces for their album of Broadway Classics: 'Together'. It will be for sure a classic and a future best seller.
5. Bonnie & Clyde by Noid
The album Bonnie & Clyde A Dalsi Muzikalove hity is a collection of the songs from the musical with the same title. Special collaboration of Lucie Bílá.
6. Fake it till we die by Anouk
Anouk is having a great year and a with non stop rythm just released one more album this year. Peaked number 5 in the charts of the Netherlands and her success is guaranteed.
7. I've come a long way by Tom Dice
Far from the spots he had in Eurovision, Tom Dice is trying to fix is place in the music scene of Belgium and abroad. Maybe due to some failures in the promotion this brilliant album deserves more interest among the public in general. But it's not over yet!
8. Just... Fabulous Rock'n'Roll by Cliff Richard
It is not Xmas without Sir Cliff, right? Here he is, this time with the classics from the Rock'n'Roll era! Rock on!
9. 40 Slaviku by Karel Gott
Not very popular among the ESC fans, Karel has his faithfull audience in his country and this collection of Hits is one more along with the others he normally has in the charts! Containing his hit ssince 1963, it is a must have!
10. Echoes by Sofia Vitória
Far from 2004, the portuguese singer grows as an artist and sings the famous Fernando Pessoa, for the very first time in english language, which is good if you are not a fan of books. As a music album and despite the arrangements are great, it can be a bit annoying to your ears if you don't like these melodies that might sound all the same after the third track.

With no specific day, the new album of Sara Tavares will come soon after a long break of seven years due to health issues.
As she's been showing in their latest two albums, the little "Chamar a Música" girl is now a woman and finally she found the roots she was looking for. We are talking about her African influences specially from her Cabo Verde.
Singing in Creole portuguese from Cabo Verde, Sara's first single from the upcoming album is Coisa Bunitas: Beautiful Things! It will be available from the 18th of October!

Eurovision is not just the three shows you see. Eurovision is also about bringing music and people together. This time it was a jam in the Hard Rock Café of Stockholm.
A nice idea to bring music and music together. The jam worked very well. It opened about 4:30 pm and started officially at 5 pm with Suzy. A very special performance as Portugal is not participating this year and also because Suzy was very loved at Eurovision but also very criticized in 2014 in her own country and by other artists of the national final. That's what music is about.
To bring people and style together: in music there are no borders, there should be negative things. And also Suzy is a nice example how it can go in the music and specially at Eurovision. The audience decide if they like and if they forget you. And that's also what Eurovision on top is about - keeping the musicians and their work in mind.
