Weekly Lists #130: Favorite Eurovision 2018 Songs
So, as those of you living in Europe probably know – Eurovision is upon us. Next Tuesday has the first semi-final, that Thursday is the second semi-final and then – of course: Saturday May 12th. The grand finale. The moment we’ve all been waiting for. Well, somewhat 🙂 Now, as any good Eurovision-fan, I did my research and listened to all entrees just once. You know, just to get a feel of things. See what this year has to offer. And for your enjoyment: here’s my favourite Eurovision 2018 songs!
Every edition of Eurovision needs at least one song that is completely out of the ordinary for what is currently on the charts. A chicken impersonation, crazy dancing and then that song? Fits the bill just right 🙂
2. Czech Republic
There’s a camel. I repeat, there’s a camel. Also, I feel as if I’ve heard this melody before, but that might just be me.
Because, well… Opera. What other reason do I need really? You know, apart from the fact that her dress takes up literally the entire stage. That’s some dedication right there.
I’ve actually not been too big of a fan of most entries by Spain the last couple of years. This year, however? I have to admit I really like Spain’s song. The duet, the fact that they seem to sing on key…. The cuteness 🙂
5. A best of
I have to admit I’m not that fond of Belgium’s song this year, but there are some crazy things happening. The Netherlands have a country-song, Georgia has a Jazz band, as you already saw: there’s opera, and Norway has sent back their 2008 winner, Alexander Rybak – that one’s catchy, but nowhere near the level of his previous entry. All in all,I can give you just one piece of advice: get ready for next week. It looks like it’s going to be a crazy ride 🙂
