Best preselection songs (ESCKAZ version):
Miguel - Amor de madrugada 9/10
Very strong lyrical ballad fitting vocal manner of Miguel and belonging to the best type of Euroballads.

Davinia - Mi obsession 9/10
Midtempo tune fitting Davinia's style. Slow beginning and fast progression is recipe for song to stay in memory for the long time.
Vicente - Nadie como tu  9/10
Another slow ballad demonstrating full abilities of Vicente's powerful voice.

Лучшие песни отбора (Версия ESCKAZ):
Miguel - Amor de madrugada 9/10
Очень сильная лиричная баллада, подходящая к вокальному мастерству Мигеля.

Davinia - Mi obsession 9/10
Среднетемповая песня, несомненно лучше всего соответствующая стилю Давиньи. Лиричное начало и быстрое развитие способствует тому, что песня надолго остается в памяти.
Vicente - Nadie como tu  9/10
Еще одна спокойная баллада, содержащая вокальные распевки, демонстрирующие всю глубину голоса Висенте.

Ramon del Castillo was born on 3 May 1985 in Las Palmas on Grand Canary. The youngest of three children, he was the first member of his family to take up music professionally.

Like most from the Canary Islands, Ramon has been into all kinds of water sports since he was a young boy. Until recently, he split his time between music and sailing, a sport in which he has won several national level competitions.
After coming 2nd in popular Spanish TV pop show, “Operacion Triunfo III,” he was chosen to represent Spain at this year’s Eurovision Song Contest. It was something that convinced him to dedicate himself exclusively to music. At just 18-years-old Ramon already has a clear idea of what the future has in store for him.

Рамон дель Кастилльо родился 3 мая 1985 года в Лас Пальмасе на острове Гранд Канария. Младший из трех детей в семье, он стал первым, кто профессионально занялся музыкой.

Как и многие на Канарских островах Рамон занимался разными видами водного спорта. До последнего времени он занимался яхтовым спортом в котором он выиграл несколько соревнований на местном уровне, однако после 2 го места в шоу Операция Триумф он решил полностью посвятить себя музыкальной карьере.

Para llenarme de ti

Se quedу llorando
llorando su pena
y bien sabe que es por ti
hoy su condena

yo la quise tanto
era la sangre en mis venas
sin saber que eran de otro
sus lunas llenas

y entre tu amor y su dolor
hay un lamento
me quemo a fuego lento
me quemo a fuego lento

pero mi pecho dijo adiуs
y ahora de nuevo brilla el sol
porque tъ le has dado fuego a mi corazуn

hoy me quedй vacнo para llenarme de ti
y mi refugio serб tu cuerpo
y mi tierra tu vientre de trigo en flor
hoy me quedй vacнo para llenarme de ti
y mi caricia serб tu aliento
y mi bandera la luz de tu dulce amor

y yo te voy a amar
hasta el final
yo te voy a dar
ay, que todito mi amor
yo te voy a amar
con toda mi piel y mi vida
todo por este amor
por tu amor

y yo te voy a amar
te voy a amar sin medida
yo te voy a dar
yo me juego hasta la vida por este amor
por este amor

hoy es tan lejana
como huella en la arena
su recuerdo sabe a sal y a hierbabuena

tъ me das la calma
en las noches de entrega
y nadie mбs podrб borrar
tu piel de seda
English translation


There she was crying
Crying in her sorrow
Knowing you’re the reason
She is condemned

I loved her so
She was the blood in my veins
Not knowing her full moons
Belonged to someone else

And between your love and her pain
There is but one lament
I slowly burn, I slowly burn
But my heart said goodbye
And the sun shines once more
‘Cause you’ve given fire to my soul

Now I became empty only to be filled of you
Your body will be my refuge
And my earth, the soil for you to grow

Now I became empty only to be filled of you
My touch will be your force
And my flag, the light of your sweet love

And I will love you till there’s no more
And I will give you all of my love
And I will love you with all my strength
All for this love

And I will love you I’ll love you without limits
And I will give you all that I am
I will even give my life for this love

Now she’s far away
Like footsteps on the sand
Her memory is a bitter taste of mint and salt

You bring me peace
On my passionate nights
And no one will ever erase
Your silky skin
