Ukraine is a big favorite to win the Eurovision Song Contest 2022 in Turin this Saturday. Russia has previously been banned from competition and many have called the Ukrainian television song (UA: PBC) the highest rating, not because the song is an excellent small batch but as a result of international opinion and gamblers, but because the political aspect of the current war in Europe is decisive.
Stefania It was a song performed by the Kalush Orchestra and was selected in 2022 by the Ukrainian national festival Vidbir. The theme is irrelevant, uses the whole stage for a thrilling performance, but doesn’t do the most common fuss at these festivals, as well as bringing us a fusion of local sounds (hip hop) with local urban music. ) And excellent instrumental arrangement. Incidentally, Moldova has chosen the same formula TrenuletulIn the fusion of folk and rock and roll, and in the lyrics it says: “Old Country, New Country / It’s One, It’s Two / Both Separate, Both Together”. Will it be political? Is it Moldova’s attempt to reconcile with neighboring Romania?
These are just two examples of how people have the right to exist as a people and nation throughout the Turin phase.
It is important to analyze the assumptions of some of the other songs, just a few hours from the finale, in recent years, in the selection of the winners, in a different analytical field, beyond the music in light of the basics of the theme. Given the overwhelming support for Ukraine, it would prove to be contrary to the more tangible aspect of life for the organization, namely the surprise effect of decision-making.
So, I define two types of songs: those that are full or onstage, based on or not, erotic music genres or inspired by the past, and the text and musical aesthetic. (In symbiosis), these songs are always original and valuable products. In any universe, there are those who can overthrow Ukraine if surprise comes at night.
In the First World, the song of Spain (RTVE), Slomo, Made for Jennifer Lopez, who never responded to the song’s author. As a result, they gave it to Chanel, who won the BenidormFest 2022 and obtained a passport to Italy. Chanel is a charming singer and sensual dancer. The song has a touch of Latin American reggaeton, but is part of the fireworks to cheer up the hosts by forgetting the worst of the festival’s apotheotic end. One of the song’s verses well references: “If I have a problem, it’s not monetary“Spain actually has a problem: it hasn’t won in a long time. Space man And even sung by Sam Ryder fills the stage, but it’s even more amazing and the singer’s vocal abilities are suffocating. Over the past year, Brexit-related politics may have helped bring the UK down. However, in 2022, the strategy was to choose a viral star on digital platforms and start producing music from inspiration. Space Oddity, By David Bowie, and in RocketmanBy Elton John, to give us a message on the “bird’s flight” through the desire for space conquest, but the awareness that the earth is our home will always force us to return, to validate what we already have.
In the second world of songs, we have good news that Poland has mentioned. The river It is a river that flows through the national festival of TVP represented by Christian Ochman (Tu bije serce Europy! Will die together, Selected by Amanda Tenfjord in voice and in-house selection in ERT, the best arrangement in the music crescendo for apotheotic end. We will visit Poland and Greece from the Netherlands By Dipte, The engaging ballad, the sound of the S10’s voice is remarkably positive, with a melodic line combined with poetry to create the story, feel and song that was chosen by the internal selection in the NPO. The Netherlands will probably benefit over Poland and Greece, as their song is written in their native language, reinforcing the diversity that the song event should have once again and it is well received.
The Eurovision Festival does not abandon the representatives of the two most famous national festivals.
Italy (RAI), in addition Brvd And Mahmood and Blanco (winner of the Festival de Sanremo 2022) may be the ballad of the year: a timeless romanticism that explores perfect definition, melody and arrangement, and the insecurity of people with difficulties in love between “impossible” and “impossible” . However, it is expected at the end of the song that there is a solution to this desire – “And you vorrei Amare, but always sbaglio“(I want to love you, but I’m always wrong) – but she doesn’t come, on the contrary, the Swedish song gives us an answer to the disturbing end of a love affair. Hold me close And Cornelia Jacobs are the selections of the television station SVT, through a well-known national competition (MelodifestyValen). Once again Sweden is one of the favorites, first of all because it is Sweden, but it has a recognizable spreading message that makes you think – “Do you not see that you have found the right thing at the wrong time?? ”(Do you not see that you have found the right path at the wrong time?) Two songs that talk about love and dislikes, perhaps already unsurprisingly classic, to the countries in question and not to the two productions that are the epitome of greatness.
Portugal is also part of a small group of songs with uplifting messages about loving things and people belonging to us.
According to recent international projections, Yearning, yearning Don’t fall into the top 10, but I think they’re wrong, because Morrow and John Blanda’s song has the perfect polyphonic character, which helps them hear it and, in essence, the song is part of the peace that emerges. At the same time, Maro and his accompanying voices also convey sweetness and calm. The song and commentators are not nostalgia, but protect the nostalgia for the future and bring about a bit of the Portuguese diaspora. Morrow’s laugh enchants us and his soft voice disappears for a moment, with a distinctive sound during this festive occasion. Europe did surrender, though the scores did not take us to the top. The song itself, which represents Portugal (RTP), promoted itself, only the best songs and charismatic performers can do.
Portuguese authors begin to exceed the goals of RTP (go to the end) and bring the beauty of simplicity to Eurovision, the love of life is simple – “Sound of Beauty“, This year’s motto.
Art and love do not accept what is beautiful, but precisely the embrace between them is beautiful. This is what the world needs, and the festival must respond to this desire, rather than competition, which makes everyone embrace each other for a reason, and figuratively, everyone wins the night.
