I’m man enough to admit that, against all my better judgement, this has grown on me since I first heard it. I actually found myself humming along with it the other day. Scary.
It has shades of Bonnie Tyler about it (check out the leggings and strained chorus) and, while it’s quite generic in a soft-rock kind of way, there’s something memorable about it.
There’s something a little diva-ish about it too, reminding me of ‘Primadonna’ by the fabulous Alla Pugacheva. I hope Kaliopi does well on the night and, given its memorable chorus, may even make it into the final.
Once again, the Eurovision demonstrating that it’s a broad church when it comes to musical styles. (Now imagine that being spoken by Terry Wogan…)
