BUDAPEST, HUNGARY – The team of oikotimes.com is following closely A Dal 2015, the show through which Hungary will decide its participation in the 60th Eurovision Song Contest. In this post we review the second heat show entries, presenting you the songs and inviting you to vote for the your favourites (you can vote up to three of them). In the first heat you predicted 4 out of 6 qualifiers to the final.
Adam Szabo – Give Me Your Love – At first it’s like any other ballad, but when you try to listen it with both of your ears, you’ll hear this song’s magic. He uses his voice in it’s full potential in second verse and it sounds so good.
Chances – The Night – I would dare to call this an electropop song. It’s not up tempo, quite opposite, it’s a bit flat. Whit a bit of changes it could have sounded much much better. Like this it’s just another drop in the sea.
Elias Gyula JR feat. Fourtissimo – Run To You – Music is OK, but no more than that. And as for the singing, well let’s say that he is struggling to bring it all out. Maybe he will improve it in the live show, but I don’t think so.
Leander Rising – Lojetek Fel – Hard Hard Rock and also it is in Hungarian. A Dal once again has a wide diversity of music. It’s definitely not my taste, but I don’t have doubts that there will be people voting for them.
Saci & Bobe Szecsi – Our Time – A very nice refreshment. Their voices work together awesome. I can totally see this in the final of A Dal, and maybe even winning. Yes, the text and the title are a bit cliché, but we can overlook it.
Gergo Olah – A tukor elott – On first rhythms you would think that he’s gonna swing it, but unfortunately it won’t happen. This atypical ballad has something I can’t describe. He does know how to sing (let’s hope it’s at least like this live) so if he has prepared a nice stage performance, I don’t see why he wouldn’t qualify for the final.
Heni Der – Ebreszto – OMG!!! I’m afraid to imagine how this could sound amazing in English. Some people say that A Dal doesn’t have the same quality like in previous years. Well if they’ve bothered to listen all the songs, including this one, they would realize that they are way wrong. I bow to her voice.
Iv – Fire – Female singers in Hungary really know to rock the stage. If she doesn’t use pyrotechnics in her performance it would be a shame. Music a bit reminds me on Adele’s Rolling in the deep. All in all, it’s a very good song.
New Level Empire – Homelight – It’s just not enough. Their song from last year is much much better. I’m sorry I have to say, but I think their A Dal journey will end this Saturday.
Pankastic! – Kicsi a vilag, de nagy vilag – It sounds a bit traditional. It also isn’t something that you will like on first hearing and also you should be a fan of this type of music. Eurofans are definitely not. Their journey could also end this Saturday.
