As I was checking out these nominations, I thought of Miami Sammy's problem with getting this week's nominator's SF nickname correct. Well Sammy, the difficulty factor of Sabastien's nickname on this site is nothing compared to the lyrics you are about to enjoy! Fully international, some in English, some in French, some in a German sounding dialect and some in what sounded like the language of the Huron Indians in "Last Of The Mohicans." The music is distinctly different, but still totally personal and wildly enjoyable. Prepare to travel first class, as we fly into

Viaene's Personal Top Ten

Belgium is a small country, yet we have a large music scene and many great (and often unknown) artists. We are most known for our electronic-dominated music (new wave, elektro, trance, techno, club dj's,...) but there is more! Belgium has the most festivals in the world compared to its total surface, we are also very proud that the "Arthur Award for Best Festival" has been ours for several times now. So it's clear: Belgians still love rock and roll, and with this list I want to give you great music, made in Belgium, which is probably not so famous abroad. Enjoy! - Viaene

Bonus: The Vault

This is a fairly new Belgian band who didn't record an album yet, therefore I did not include them on the final list. I want to wait until they get the chance to record their songs properly. These guys come from my town and are friends of mine, They have more and better songs then on that website and they play a very good live set, I hope they find the money to record an album soon, so I can share it with you. - Viaene

After disembarking and sorting through the carousel for your personal belongings .... VOTE!

I really enjoyed your list Viaene I didn't know hardly any of the songs and was presently pleased with the whole thing. I always knew you have great taste in music :D

I think you should enter My Heroics in this weeks TT again. Maybe it would stand a chance now that people have revisited it ;)

Viaene, I absolutely love your list!!! So many excellent songs on it that it was very hard for

me to pick just ten. You have exceptional taste in music. I so enjoyed listening and am sure that

I will go back often to listen again. Thanks for giving me the opportunity to listen to some new

music that I wouldn't have heard otherwise.
