Now what did I just say about the Portuguese entry - that it seemed kind of old-fashioned ... ? I feel kind of the same way about this entry. But not really. :-) I guess what I mean is that even though it's modern and current and all that, whatever, I feel like I've heard it a hundred times. And I probably have. There is kind of a Spanish beat to it that I do like. And it's catchy ... at least while I'm listening to it. But it's just not that special. There are other songs this year that have much more personality and also the qualities that this song has.
The singer's pretty good ... her voice isn't bad, and of course a hot young blonde in a crotch-length silver dress is a tried and tested gimmick. ;-) The dancers slash presentation ... kind of cheesy. I like the switch between the chorus and the verse in this song. Hm. It kind of grows on me. But.
The chance to have their song grow on the audience is something that Spain just won't get. So I personally, although this is not a bad song in any way, shape or form - it's a perfectly acceptable pop ditty with nothing wrong with it - I'm afraid there will be a number of other entries that will outshine it.
This is Soraya performing La noche es para mi by Jason Gill, Dmitri Stassos, Irini Michas and Felipe Pedroso ... this quartet will be competing for Spain, which, being one of the Big Four (a concept which I plan to explain in a later post) will not have to worry about getting through the semis - and also will not reap any of the advantages of that potential double exposure. :-) They will only take the stage on May 16th, in the final ... and in the best possible slot, #25. Ooh ...
