Each week, Eurovision Union is dedicated to bring you a specially curated playlist featuring a whole bunch of our favourite songs from this week, from both national final and Eurovision stars new and old. This week, we’ve got new songs from former Eurovision artists, some of the Eurovision 2017 that are newly selected, plus some of our favourite national final songs.
Listen to the playlist here:
We’ll start with the new Eurovision songs for 2017 of which we’ve chosen the Australian entry by Isaiah called Don’t Come Easy, which is our third official competing entry into Eurovision. Belgium also released their song this week, and it’s already climbing the betting odds. Their song City Lights sung by Blanche is a modern song bound to do well come Eurovision time. We’ve also got Portugal, who will be represented by Salvador Sobral and one of our personal favourite songs of the year, Amar Pelos Dois. Lastly, we’ve got the Greek entry into Eurovision called This is Love, which was chosen from three entries that were commissioned for the popular Greek singer Demy.
Melodifestivalen came to a conclusion this weekend, and we have a winner in Robin Bengtsson, however this week Benjamin Ingrosso’s song Good Lovin’ has been in our heads. We’ve also featured Anton Hagman’s song called Kiss You Goodbye, which controversially beat Loreen in the Andra Chansen duel last week.
From the Baltics, we’ve got Rasmus Rändvee with This Love, which competed in the recently concluded Eesti Laul in Estonia. From Latvia, we’ve also got My Radiant You, who reached the Supernova final with their song All I Know, although they lost out to winners Triana Park. Speaking of which, we’ve also got a song called Iron Blue by Triana Park. From the former Eurovision participant Ott Lepland, we’ve got his new track called Maailm mu ees. Estonia was also our Best of the Bunch feature this week, and we anticipate one of the readers favourite Estonian entries from previous years will be Goodbye to Yesterday, which was performed by Elina and Stig back in 2015.
From other National Finals across Europe, we have Totova’s recent entry into Hungary’s A Dal, and we’ve got One which was performed by Ida Una in the Danish national final. From Italy we have Alessio Bernabei’s entry into Sanremo 2017 called Nel Mezzo di un Applauso. From the UK national final, we have Freedom Hearts which was performed by Olivia Garcia. Lastly, from Iceland, a national final which finished only this weekend, we’ve got Hildur’s wildcard entry of Bammbaramm.
We’ve also featured some newer songs from former Eurovision artists. While we wait for some 2017 news from Russia, you can listen to the newest track from Serebro, who represented the nation back in 2007. We’re also still waiting on the Armenian song by Artsvik, so for now, we’ve got Where Were You by Sirusho who still remains a fan favourite from Armenia. Last but not least, we’ve got Minus One with their song Invincible, which a film clip was just released for, and also How Lucky We Are by Douwe Bob, who represented the Netherlands in 2016.
