VALLETTA, MALTA – Tomorrow Malta kicks off the national selection for Eurovision Song Contest 2014 and the first semifinal of MESC will take place in the wonderful island of the knights.
We finally got time to listen to the songs and have a first impression of what we like and what we don’t. Yes, the following text is full of bitching so get your tranquillisers before you start reading. In the meantime you can listen to the songs here.
Tomorrow night we will deliver you the results of the semifinal from Malta and on Saturday our French specialist, Olivier Rocher will bring you the live report from the show as streamed by eurovision.tv!
FROM BEST TO WORST
Hypnotica: loved it from the first minute but needs a great stage presentation
Love will take me home: somehow brilliant gay anthem but singer needs a stylist asap!
Let the Sunshine In: if represented Denmark it would be top five, risky song but good.
Lovetricity: smart gimmick with the title of the song and somehow intriguing to watch!
Addictive: modern, fresh and well structured music composition, interesting and nice!
Just No Place Like Home: very good ballad but simple. Fabrizio though is too old for Eurovision.
Invisible: Great voice, interesting tune but I am not supporting the styling.
Because I have you: typical ballad, typical Eurosong. Maybe we had too many of these in Eurovision
One Last Ride: It seems that the song is nice (although with structural problems) and Daniel is not fitting to this entry as a performer. Don’t know, something is missing here!
Brand New Day: Funky, fresh and British pop but still something’s missing to become appealing.
Oblivion: Chris has a great voice but the wrong song.
Safe: Myriam should understand that it’s not 1996 anymore.
Ten: one of the same, totally uninteresting.
City Lady: Seventies and NY disco? Nah, not for me!
Take Me: is “la la la” allowed anymore in Eurovision? simple but boring.
Some Kind Of Wonderful: sorry, this is indeed a bad song.
Coming Home: shouldn’t this song be titled “Go Home” instead?
Now and Forever: when it starts you are curious, when it continues you regret you did that!
Pin The Middle: Finland 1992 is totally out of fashion!
