Our Faves

Spain, ESDM – El Sueño De Morfeo, “Contigo Hasta El Final (With You All The Way)”

SPAIN, STOP BEING SO AWESOME. So this automatically gets a bid to the finals which is FANTASTIC because I will want to watch this while drunk on wine at Katie’s house at 3pm on a Saturday. -M

Everyone in this band is hot and they get TONS of bonus points for singing in their own language. -K

Hungary, Bye Alex, “Kedvesem”

We are going to loooove watching Katie’s hot Hungarian hipster boyfriend. Of all the videos I watched on YouTube, this one has the most views over multiple videos so you KNOW it’s going to win. -M

It’s my future Hungarian boyfriend! My peeps in England better vote for him. -K

Greece, Koza Mostra feat. Agathon Iakovidis, “Alcohol Is Free”

Greece does not disappoint in Eurovision the way they hurt the value of the Euro! -M

This might be my absolute favorite and I hope it wins so that England will host next year since Greece can’t as it has no money.  -K

Bulgaria, Elitsa & Stoyan, “Samo Shampioni (Only Champions)”

This video features ROCKING bagpipes, a woman wearing a giant belt that looks like gold scrotum who magically changes outfits, and Rick Springfield’s drummer. This is Bulgarian perfection. -M

LADY DRUMMERS and BAGPIPES! -K

Italy, Marco Mengoni, “L’Essenziale”

This guy is really hot. -M

Dude is HOT. -K

Katie’s Faves

Latvia, PeR, “Here We Go”

Terrible boyband rap duo…LOVE IT! This is exactly the crap I want from Eurovision. [I don’t think we can be friends anymore if you actually like this. Please go listen to Belle & Sebastian to help you change your mind on PeR. -M]

Malta, Gianluca Bezzina, “Tomorrow”

This is adorable it reminds me of a McFly song.

France, Amandine Bourgeois, “L’enfer Et Moi”

Sultry French power ballad song. The video is terrible but I am super excited to see this preformed live. [I also kind of love this song, it reminds me of a cassette of current French music I got from Express in 1993. I thought Vanessa Paradis was the highlight of French pop music. Oh, 14-year-old Melissa. -M]

Switzerland, Takasa, “You And Me”

This video is adorable, which I know is not a great reason to love a song but fuck it! [If only they had spent as much time writing the song as they did making this awesome video. -M]

Serbia, Moje 3, “Ljubav je svuda”

So this is terrible but I had to put in the girl group. [I almost put this on my list but I just couldn’t do it. -M]

Melissa’s Faves

Finland,  Krista Siegfrids, “Marry Me”

If this song came out in the US, I would think it was horribly sexist and offensive but since it’s from the bastion of equality and socialism, Finland, I like to think that it’s making fun of American values. [I totally almost included this but instead put in the Serbian girl group, so I’m glad you included Krista from Finland! -K]

Romania, Cezar, “It’s My Life”

This Romanian lothario reminds me of a magician, so he freaks me the fuck out. Thankfully he makes up for it with some cheesy European singing. [You put Cezar in and I put in PeR, I’m so happy we have all the crazy’s featured in our faves post! -K]

Croatia, Klapa s Mora, “Mižerja”

I find this song completely unlistenable but the harmonies are so nice and who doesn’t love matching suits? [I hope they make it through to the finals cause the choreography is what you would see on the train to crazytown. -K]

Iceland, Eyþór Ingi Gunnlaugsson, “Ég á Líf”

I do not know why I love this weird Icelandic ballad, but I do. I love that it’s in his native language and not English and Icelandic is so beautiful-sounding. Plus he LOOKS LIKE A VIKING. This appears to be a sad story-song, too, and not just about love. [He should be on the show Vikings! -K]

Norway, Margaret Berger, “I Feed You My Love”

I have a bias towards Scandinavia. I know. But this sounds like something I would listen to in real life.
