So Germany and Colombia are on a raping spree: Carilna Marquez took "Around The World" from ATC and made raped it modestly. It wasn't that great to begin with. Leony! really raped "Fugee La" by the Fugees to create "Ooh La La La". The result is less than amusing.
Participating in the preliminary rounds for the Eurovision songcontest 2013 for Germany, Cascada was clearly inspired by last year's winner Loreen. Too bad Nathalie is not so glorious in this video. She tries really hard to look glamorous and sophisticated, but ended up looking more like a Madam of a brothel. One word for if they go on to sing at the ESC2013 finals: copycat songs never end high.
2013 Hasn't been a good music year yet. The Sinderellas want to confirm this. The song is a very tame and 13 in a dozen song, however they thought the could sell it by adding some sex to the mix. WRONG yet again...
One of our favorite 90's classics "Rythm Of The Night" by Corona just got raped, by Anglo-German Cascada. While Sunblock enhanced "Baby Baby" using the original singer and giving it a modern twist, Cascada just planely violated it, publicly. Ok, Sunblock's video was more questionable but this Cascada's version is terrible!
"Hey! Let's make a song with 'sex' in it, for sure it sells!" It's one of the lamest excuses for a song I have to say...
OK, the beginning of this video is really an epic fail. We really didn't want to see the antiquated Mr. President (now LayZee) in a cheap hotel room. Missed potential if you asked me, the song would've been much better if I didn't understand the lyrics were crappy. Let's hope they release a Ukrainian version as well...
So I've hear the 90's were back. In Romania they took it a little too seriously. Remeber "Runaway" from the Real McCoy? Well it's just become "Never Hide". Why improve something when you can't? Well it's not like the original was a gem either...
So, what has happened here? M.iam.i, i suppose a German attempt at a band, did a song that resembles mostly a failed disco track from '79 dusted up and cracked-up. The pointless and un-catchy lyrics are combined by a completely random and utterly tacky video. Also what faith did Flo Rida suffer. Or is it actually a German knock-off? God, rescue me from this song!
German Tom Novy had the original idea to make a song about Thelma and Louise, so they hired some mediocre singer to do the singing on the OH SO deep lyrics. For the video they spent exactly €2, on the fake dollar bills. Come on! At least the real movie had a HOT Brad Pitt, WTF are these men they put in this video!
Epic fail Lolita, seems to be able to sell her sorry attempt to a song only in Poland. The German Alizée rip-off who doesn't manage to follow one note to key. She sings about a cute guy. The only guy she seems to be able to get is not so cute however. The man in the video is hardly a "garçon", and testifies of a severe case of the Oedipus-complex. Also, on her next video, if we're unlucky enough to get one, she should really dab on some make-up and try to wear something less outdated.
Wasn't the point of making a cover improving on the original? That's not what Loona did, the dutch "songstress" didn't even take the effort to update the song to modern times...
This year the Eurovision shows a low in songs that interest me, however I'd like to give a prediction of the winner using viewing totals from youtube, let's see how the overall favorites are doing. My favorites of these are Hungary, Estonia and Norway. I think the vocal capabilities of Sweden and Norway are dubious, Stella's "Haba Haba" is like the new "Waka Waka" and Eric Saade's "Popular" is an obnoxious ABBAeque-song that however enters your head and seems indelible. Poland's "Jestem" is the usual Polish pop-rock song. Lena's tries to go back to the 60's and should've participated in the Avengers. Dino will do good with the elderly, he kind of remind me of Roger Witthaker. My prediction: anyone of the top 3 youtube hits I think, with special attention to B&H because they always get a lot of political votes.
Norway, Stella Mwangi ± 1 300 000
Bosnia Herzegovina, Dino Merlin ± 1 200 000
Sweden, Eric Saade ± 1 100 000
Poland, Magdalena Tul ± 1 000 000
Germany, Lena ± 950 000
Hungary, Kati Wolf ± 800 000 +
Estonia, Getter Jaani ± 500 000
