Get ready for some summertime snoozing! Unlike their international hit "Tacata" this song lacks all signs of catchiness The video is yet another "Macarena" ripoff, and the underage prostitutes in this clip will only please Berlusconi. Also, can their song title contain anything else than Tic or Tac?Hell to the NO!
While this is probably going to be the summer hit of 2013, I cant help but notice how trashy and unoriginal everything about this song is. And the video is just sa rip-off of the Macarena, really in 20 years we didn't evolve?
Or will Italy have Little Italy's soon? While the song isn't that great, this footage of the Milano Chinatown does show us an ongoing trend (or problem to some) in italy: Chinification. The town of Prato now has Chinese outnumbering the original inhabitants, and who went to Rome will know the zone around the station is somewhat of a Chinese colony. Maybe Alex Gaudino could've made one of the Chinese girls sing in this song? It would've spice things up for sure!
UK Singer Redd teams up with the two whores of Hip Hop and R&B: Snoop Dogg and Akon. Tremendously famous for very good efforts in the past, these two slid down the ladder of trash by their lust for money. Snoopy was gangstah until he became the bitch of many eastern european acts for a littlebit of money. Similar stories go for Akon. This international production is, to say the least messy. As the video is. It's hard to hear the 'star' Redd in this joint, and for her work on camera she can knock on the door of many Romanian starlets for advice.
Some people tell me: If you don't have anything positive to say then shut up! It's true, I can't say anything positive about Carolina Marquez, but I'm going to say my negative anyway. First of all, she's the last thing we'll ever remember about this "song". She doesn't sing, and her share in the complete finished work is less then 5%. For some strange reason, her lack of talent perhaps, she got upstaged by a variety of other people trying to do their thing in this audio-atrocity. JayKay would be the logical person to get the main credit here. His performance is adequate. Then she spends her Italian Mafia and all of her Colombian Cocaine money on hit-boy Lil' Wayne, but then her producers speed up his vocals so much we wouldn't even recognize it's actually Him.
The lesson: TALENT CAN'T BE BOUGHT. If you can't sing, are not good looking, can't dance then the only thing is being smart like Madonna (or whatever she did right to get to the top). But if you're none of the above your only hope is meeting Jay-Z or L.A. Reid, until you don't, it's better to put your sugar daddy's money somewhere else.
Even if it was the most underwhelming Eurovision song contest of the last couple of years in terms of show and quality, the scoring was rather enticing. Some very suprising results came out of the votes and some favourites were smashed!
Personally i wasn't surprised Blue didn't go far, the vocal capabilities of the boyband are hardly impressing. Another favorite of the bookies, France, didn't fare well either, the background was very nice, but the song was not set in the right picture. Also Germany's snoozefest didn't score well, and again I wasn't surprised.
However, even if she didn't sing very nicely, Norway's 'haba haba' made a shocking failure to place in the finals, and Hungary's power-song ended up far to low for my taste, even if it was kind of a Eurovision cliché and her dress was kinda ugly... Estonia's "Rockefellar Street" a welcome break from the Euro-drama we've heard in all the other songs, placed second to last, a true pitty, for my taste.
From all the top 10 placing songs, i do admit Azerbaijan was the best show and song, since the rest was really bad. I really suspect some maffia activity behind the placing of Italy as runner-up, since it was a pure ear-torture. Raphael was clearly without voice, and resembled from time to time a cat in heat. Sweden's Eric Saade, with his overall nasal vocality, was my pick if i had to choose from the top 3, just because he looks good and the song was kind of catchy, were it in an irritating way tough. Ukraine's Mika Newton also failed to impress me, and her dress looked like she just plucked a chicken before going on stage! Denmark was pretty good, but it's not really my genre of music.
However, it is interesting to see what Azerbaijan will do with Eurovision 2012 so I'm exited nevertheless.
I really LOVE Kelly Rowland, but I think her 'new' duet with Nelly is a big snooze. Basically it's the other version of "Dilemma" they rejected back in 2001, but the two seem desperate and think they can squeeze it out so it will give them back some of the limelight. Kelly really got me gone on this one. I also don't like her haircut, but thank god it'll grow right back! Liking her new collaboration with Alex Gaudino though. Can't wait to see a video for that one!
