Netherlands – Sorry for quickness – have been unwell :/

OG3NE

Netherlands is much of a muchness. I appreciate the sentiment behind it and I appreciate it’s written by the girls’ father for their dying mother (cancer, apparently), but in this setting, in this context, It isn’t going to do a right lot.

It’s very ploddy if you will, and goes nowhere fast. That’s not to say that it is a bad song, if anything it’s un -memorable – which is even worse than being outright shit which this isn’t…. but it’s on the edge.

Sorry but I also lost my mother to cancer, and I find this piece of writing quite offending.

Everyone is allowed to have a own opinion but saying this is unmemorable to me is honestly not the truth.

I am aware not everyone may like the song, but there are many people who know how it is to lose someone to cancer or any dissease, and these girls truly bring a feeling of strenght to anyone who has been, is or will be in that position.

My significant other has had cancer twice so I’m very well aware as to how Cancer affects families. As it says , I appreciate the sentiment but its a contest and it wont do well.

Trust me, been watching Eurovision for more than twenty years, sensitive songs always get points, their vocals are possibly the best and together with the whole staging it will do much better than most say
