Phils Eurovision Countdown – Part 33 – Netherlands


I was on the radio the other day with the sainted Alisdair from OGAE UK, and the equally divine Lisa-Jayne Lewis from ESCInsight, both of whom dissed the Dutch song for being (well) toss, but conceding it’s going to finish in the top ten.

Now, I don’t know about you, but to finish in the top ten, you have to have something about you and this song does. I would suggest that the naysayers Google an artist called Christian Kane, as this could well be one of his songs. Alternatively, I believe that given this was Waylon’s style of music to start with, it should be no surprise that he’s come out with this type of song.

Believe me, it’s pleasant enough and has a defined structure that will stand the scrutiny of the jurors. The televoters may also hear a decent faux-rock song.

Phil’s score – EIGHT points
