Eurovision 2016: France

And here’s France’s entry for this year’s Eurovision Song Contest. It’s Amir with “J’ai Church”. It reminds me of a whole bunch of other songs, but mostly it has echoes of last year’s Swedish winner. Upbeat and catchy, I think it’ll do well.

It’s interesting how they’ve moved from 100% French lyrics to introducing more and more English over the years. A bit of a shame as French is so beautiful when sung. Not all languages have that advantage (I’m looking at you, Dutch).

We’re getting closer and closer to the big day(s) next month and I think it’s fair to say I won’t have time to blog about all the entries. I also think it’s fair to say not all the entries deserve individual blog posts. Harsh? Maybe. But I have been listening to a number of the songs on Spotify, to gauge what they’re like after a few days. You can hear most of them on this playlist.

After repeated plays, this one is definitely growing on me.
