Phil’s Eurovision Countdown – Part 30 – Moldova


If imitation is the best form of flattery, then Moldova must be basking in self-glory, as they have clearly decided that the recipe to Eurovision success is to replicate the basic ingredients of last year’s entry, with an even worse lyric.

Let’s make no bones about it, this song is hideous. Lyrically, it’s badly-written, and is just a collection of words put to a slightly up-tempo beat. There are lots of opportunities for the dancers to distract from the words – but, and it’s a big but, it has that sing-a-long quality that most of Europe still look for in a Eurovision song.

The very average televoter will like this far more than they should, especially in places like the UK (sadly). This will also get the Romanian douze, and score high in all places east of the Oder-Neisse line.

Never, ever, underestimate the power of cheese (lovely cheese) at this contest. This is as pungent as a stale Brie.

Phil’s Score – Five Points.
