3 Romania - Playing With Fire - Paula Seling & Ovi

3 - 162 pts / 04 - 104 pts in semi 2
Paula Seling and Ovidiu Cernăuţeanu (Ovi Martin) won the Romanian final with the song Playing With Fire. The song is written by Ovi.
Paula Seling had two songs in the final, the other being It's Not Too Late a duet with Kamara Ghedi. You can listen to both at Paula Selings website.
A and A records (Warner) have releasedan album Playing With Fire with the Eurovision entry, two remixes and four solo tracks by Paula and Ovi each.
A promo cdsingle has the ESC entry plus 2 solo tracks by each performer.
Another promo from Finland has Radio version, Fly DJ's remix, Singback (Karaoke) and Instrumental (AXR Music AXRPR 118)

An odd release is the new Make Your Own Remix kit of Playing With Fire. It has 7 basic tracks to make your own remix. It's for sale at iTunes, e-music but at the price it's sold for and considering you have to make music out of it yourself it gets a bit of thumbs down here at the Oslo Collection. Now give us a cdsingle, now!
