Becks on Bulgaria

Deep Zone & Balthazar - DJ, Take Me Away 5/5

So, maybe this song isn't really a five-pointer. But what it may lack in the tune department, it clearly makes up for in packaging. I am wild with Bulgaria and their attempts of making things change in the land of Eurosongs.

The whole idea is brilliant: let's call up a dance collective so hip it hurts and ask them to provide a Eurovision entry that sounds anything but eurovisional. Rhythm, scratching, vocal effects, reggae, machine guns, well, you name it and they have it. That and a blonde singer in body paint. Who could ask for more?

Well, there is no key-change. Which is a shame, but there is more to life than key-changes.

The big question remains, however... Why is it Bulgaria that makes all this effort and not a great pop nation like the UK?

In the final?
Surely, yes.
