One of my friends asked me some weeks ago if I would write anything about Eurovision again this year. Honestly, I was not so sure back then because it seemed that I did not have many songs that I really like from this year’s competition. Of course, that might also be due to the fact that I did not really follow it as intense as the previous years. But still, Eurovision songs can be a good alternative to listen to if you’re bored with all the mainstream songs. So… after some contemplations (not really 😛 ), I proudly present to you my top 5 songs for Eurovision 2018! Yeyyy (/*’-‘)/**\(‘-‘*\)
Latvia was one of the countries that released their entries pretty early. And among those countries, this song was the only one that immediately captured my attention. Love at the first hearing, if you may. I did not know why. Perhaps its familiarity with the more mainstream pop songs? Or perhaps because it’s such a theatrical song? Or perhaps because it spoke about the broken heart? I don’t know. But the fact remains that this song was the only Eurovision 2018 song I liked until I re-listened to some other Eurovision songs this year.
I didn’t actually know when exactly this song was released, but I stumbled upon this song when I listened to Eurovision 2018 playlist on Spotify. And like the first song, I immediately loved it ❤ I think this is such a simple yet sweet song.
I just came across this song when my friends and I gathered and watched this year’s entries. I know it might sound like a repetition but I could not find a better word for this song except sweet. And I like the choreography, as well, how they moved in harmony. I hope they would perform as beautiful on stage.
Given the fast number of non-English entries this year, I should have probably added more than this song to this list. But so far, this is the best non-English entries I’ve seen. Year by year, their entries had almost always captured my attention. This song reminded me a bit of their 2015 entry, with strong strings part (and I can never say no to anything involving the violin ) so that probably explained why I liked this song.
I always thought that Belgium’s entry has always been the most… unique. When I first listened to this song, I only listened to the chorus part and I admitted that I did not really like it. But then I listened again to the whole song and it made the whole song way more dramatic than what I was expected.
Of course, anything can happen and what we saw as beautiful in the video or Spotify might not be executed as great on stage. But based on all the songs I have listened so far, these 5 are my favourites. As usual, I have no expectation for them winning (honestly!) because it varies A LOT between entries and sometimes I wondered if we really make a fair comparison in this contest. Probably not. But anyway.
