Uhmm.... maybe blatantly easy songs are fine as well, since there isn't much competition with the difficult ones

The latest one was Volcano?

You're right, as usual...

I'll try with a really easy one, then:

Egs' édes
Emelem poharam rád és a pasasodra
Egs' édes
Éveim vannak, hogy rád várjak
Egs' édes
Már hallom az esküvői harangokat
Egs' édes
Három cigit adtál, hogy kifüstöljem a könnyeket

By the way, I just realized a funny thing: I can't really translate the first verse Delicate, because the verbs 'to kiss' and 'to make out' are not really differentiated in Hungarian... This is even funnier if you know that the problematic verse would represent the Hungarian reality with these slight changes:

"We will kiss when we are together
When everybody's watching
We will take it to all conceivable public places
We will make out when we're in the middle of a crowded square
We're never scared
It's just that it's delicate"
"There's, another example. See, here I'm now sitting by myself, uh, er, talking to myself. That's, that's chaos."

"If you find you've got a dragon charging at you at thirty miles per hour snapping its teeth you can always drive it defensively through the covers"
