2015 Reviews – UK – Electro Velvet – Still In Love With You
For a country which produces so much good music, why must then send such strange music to Eurovision. I really thought that the UK were on the right track with Molly last year, the poor girl was definitely ripped off!
This year, they have chosen a duo, Electro Velvet, who are singing Still In Love With You, which is apparently classified as electro swing. BBC are also claiming that this genre is popular. In which universe, I’m not sure.
I think the song is pretty average. It doesn’t fit in with what Eurovision is becoming – modern. I think the lyrics are incredibly cheesy, and the performance is hit and miss. I’ve seen a few videos of the duo doing ‘unplugged’ versions of the song, and they stuff it up. For a performance done in front of over 200 million viewers, the last thing a country would want is amateurs who stuff up their own song.
I’m not really sure what went wrong here. For the UK to succeed, they really need to lift their game as they’re being left behind in the early 2000’s. They really need some big names to save their reputation. Even if it’s not one of their top artists, they need someone with some credibility to enter. But the problem with that is that Eurovision itself doesn’t have credibility in the UK. It’s like a never ending cycle.
I don’t think this song will do well. I don’t hate it but I certainly don’t like it. I’m going to give this song a 4/10. Good Luck UK, you’ll need it.
