MAY 09: TIME FOR THE SMURFS & PAPA SMURF / VIDEO
Forced to change their name for the Eurovision Song Contest 2013, Takasa are proudly representing Switzerland this year with a song that reminds us something from Moldova 2005, something from Russia 2012 and something of Greece 2013.
WHAT WE LIKED
With a mix of traditional musical instruments, such as drum, trombone and double bass, along with the more modern electric guitar shows that together Takasa are one. (by eurovision.tv as we had to miss this one for various reasons)
WHAT WE DISLIKED
What we dislike in this song is that despite everyone loving it we feel that this is just a fuzz song for nothing. There is no point in this song, although we all understand and respect the music intention of each participating country. I will not be surprised though if it goes to the final. (Well 10 of them have to go in after all right?)
INFORMATION ABOUT SWITZERLAND
