The One's that got away- part 2- Jose Galisteo

For a new month- July. As its freezing cold down-under in M.E.L.B.
we need something it keep us warm and smiling. So I have come up with a new feature to look at some artists
who missed out on a Eurovision place. We already featured Josin Catalin from Romania- and his
many talents & tunes for Eurovision.

Now we go to from Romania to Espana- and Jose Galisteo. Jose being very easy on the eye, plus he has a terrific
swedesque Electro-Dance sound to go with it.
Jose was born in Viladecans, Barcelona. He competed in 'Operacion Triunfo' in Spain a Tv talent show that has brought us Beth, Ramon & Rosa (ESC 2002)
In may 2007 he did his first 'Remember' english album of 80's/90's dance versions of classics.
This gave us great new versions of classics like 'Big in Japan' & 'I promised myself'
these gave Jose his first taste of sucess in Europe- After his promo- duty on this 1st album
In Febuary 2010 he sung one of the 2 Spanish entries for Eurovision in Oslo- wrote by
super-swede Thomas G:Son
The song called 'Beautiful Life' came in only 7th place in the national final for Spain 2010.
The winner was actor turned singer Daniel Diges with 'Algo pequenito' However this terrific G;son tune
went on to be Jose's biggest hit to date.
Let's hope Le Thomas G;son puts his songwriting faith in Mr Galisteo again -for Eurovision cus we think this combination was pure schlager-dance magic. Meanwhile check out more ..

With the spainish single vid- 'Logicamente No' & 'Mis Trampas' (March 2011- release)

-all available on i-tunes international (sigh)
