About the winner:

  1. It is the OST of the movie with the same title.
  2. Movie is about an artist /Arsen/ who forgets about his family geting lost in fame. He leaves his wife but because of his lifestyle soon he looses his popularity and fame. Soon his wife finds “an alternative”. The song sounds close to the end of the movie : during the culmination of the “Love triangle story” where everything gets clear without any word ….

Lyrics:

It was spring around,

Trees were dancing because of weak wind

All around you could smell the flavour of the spring

And it was the day we had a kiss for the first time:
Oh my dear and the only one…..

I live and breathe just for you

And my lips always pronounce your name

Just your name my sun and my happiness

Oh my dear and the only one…..

It was long ago

But I haven’t forgotten that day

I haven’t forgotten that spring and that lovely park

Let’s go to that garden once again

And let’s remember that spring of our love once again

Oh my dear and the only one…..

    1. I mean I was considering it for my #1 or #2 too but then I thought it would fail to impress in case it won this NF and went to compete in FdlC 11 where most of the HoDs would listen to it for the first time…

      1. That’s why I voted for song#1 and #2 above song #5 as I considered instant appeal and possible higher ranking for Avat too, but I would be glad if any song in my top 3 won 😉

  3. Exquisite small national final with a strong French influence. 🙂

    1st Rosy Armen – Es mi sirun tgha tesa
    2nd Rosy Armen – Hingala
    3rd Sergey Davidyan – Arajin siro erg
