Patricia Kaas – S'il Fallait Le Faire 5/5
Haunting, classy traditional French chanson worthy a star like Patricia Kaas. Goosebumps alert! Intense. Vulnerable. Melancholic. It’s all the things I love in a song and together with a flawless performance sung by an extraordinary voice the French entry goes straight to my heart. You don’t even have to guess where my vote will go tonight. Nice touch with the song title in different languages on the LEDs too. Could be a jury favourite (well it should) but will televoters remember it with such an early starting position? Sadly no, plus the fact that it is not instant enough after just one listening. Anyway, I’m in love and will play this track for years.
