Eurovision 2015: Reino Unido.

Continúo con uno de los finalistas y quizás uno de los que siempre se espera mucho, pero se recibe poco. 

REINO UNIDO - ELECTRO VELVET - STILL IN LOVE WITH YOU

Este año, quien a nivel mundial es el 2º o 3º productor musical del mundo, nos lleva al pasado con sonidos modernos. Creo que es una canción con doble filo, puede estar en un top15 o de hecho quedar la última. El Reino Unido no va a ganar, hay canciones que te dicen “esta va a ganar” o “Esta lo va a hacer muy bien”, pero no es el caso de la apuesta Británica. 

Lo que uno no entiende es, ¿Por qué si el Reino Unido goza de tanto prestigio como productor musical no gana Eurovision? La repuesta quizás la tenga la BBC, no hace lo necesario para ganar, si lo ha intentado (2009, 2011, 2013, 2014) pero no es constante, y así no funciona. El Reino Unido se confío en sus 5 victorias, y sus 15 segundos lugares, pero desde su última victoria, entró en decadencia, aunque si uno se pone a ver en detalle, el Reino Unido casi nunca es que haya llevado súperhits, con excepciones varias. 

Este año quieren “seguir enamorados” con sonidos modernos, pero otros muy retro. Electro Velvet, es un dueto mixto que no lo hace mal, pero tampoco logran destacar por algo en especial. Esperemos no les vaya mal, pero que se pellizquen y saquen la casta para futuras ediciones y vayan por su 6a victoria. 

Carpe Diem!

Eurovision 2017: My General Top42 before all the Lights Get On (1s Part)

It's Eurovision Time and there are tops on line from the whole world, well, sometimes I made mine, and this year, I've been working on that too. 
Here are the first delivery of what is my point of view according to the first listening and the song itself, let’s start this….


42. LITHUANIA
The singer has a great attitude and she can deliver a good version live of the song but the main problem is the buildup of the song itself, what is that?!


41. GEORGIA
I think she has one of the best voices of this year, the message of the song is good but I cannot stand the old-fashioned of this song, maybe if it had had some modern instrumentation it would work much better at first listening.


40. ISRAEL
Most of the fans are going to hate me, but I cannot find a gap in this song, I know it’s an up-tempo and he has a nice voice but it wasn’t enough to captivate me at first. Maybe in rehearsals or in his semifinal will make me change my mind, but it’s still not my cup of tea.

39. ALBANIA
It’s too dram…

Eurovision 2017: My General top42 Before All the Lights Get On (3d Part)

I'm going to divide the last 14 places into two parts. Here are the places 14 to 8: 
14. NORWAY
Aleksandr Walmann has great vocals and JOWST one of the best mixes of the year. It will depend on what they have to performance it. I love the song and it was one of my favs from MGP this year.I’d like to see Aleksandr by himself in future too.


13. ESTONIA
Verona is a nice retro-eighties-song. Despite I cannot really find chemistry between the singers the song itself it’s really good.The risk will be in his vocals, Laura sings pretty well, but Koit could be penalized with his, I’m afraid. 


12. SWITZERLAND
Flawless voice and great live performance, I hope they can make a great show live using a good backdrop and nice graphics that helps to sell their song. Switzerland could be placing really well this year, a top10 for sure if they have all the ingredients ready.


11. NETHERLANDS
For 5th year in a row, The Netherlands sends a song I like since I hear at first time. I love the harmonies of the t…

Eurovision 2017: My General Top42 before All the Lights Get On (2nd Part)

I wanted to post my top42 before the rehearsals, I could not make it but I will post it before the Shows are broadcasted.
28. SWEDEN
I’m a Swedish lover, but I cannot build a bridge with Bengtsson’s song, I know he has a great live show but I cannot stand the song itself. For me is not a winner, nor a top10 for Sweden. Sorry Sweden for second year in a row I won’t be crossing my fingers for you, but I aware you’ll be in the final.

27. IRELAND
It’s a nice 90’s-early-00’s ballad song, but I did not feel in love with it at first listening, 7th time winner of Eurovision is still lost for my taste despite I love its entries back in 2010, 2014 and 2015 ;).

26. AUSTRALIA
After the amazing Dami Im I was a bit disappointed about this song once I heard it at first time, I kinda like it but without being my ultimate favorite, I like it but I will not regret if they did not get through the final.

25. CZECHIA
I like it since the first listening but being realistic, it has not a strong gap that makes you …
