Each week, Eurovision Union will be bringing you a specially curated playlist featuring songs recently released by Eurovision or National Final artists, and a few of our old favourites. This week we’ve got a great mix of Eurovision 2017 related songs, plus new tracks from Eurovision and national final stars!
Listen to the playlist here:
Since Eurovision 2017 is freshly over, let’s discuss that first today! One of the most impressive performances this year came from a non-competitor, ironically! Monatik was the first semi-final opening act with the song Spinning, such a funky, modern pop song. We’ve also got the new song from Jamala, which was debuted in the Grand Final, and called I Believe In U.
From the participating entries, we’ve got the Italian version of Breathlessly, the Maltese entry. The song is called Perdersi, and of course performed by Claudia Faniello. From the female powerhouses this year O’G3NE, we’ve got their song Magic, which is still one of our favourites! From French participant Alma, we’ve taken a song off her newly released album, the song titled Ivre – this girl can do no wrong! Lastly, we’ve got Koit Toome and Laura. For us personally, Verona wasn’t a song we were in love with, but then we heard the 1985 version of the song, which for us is the favourite version of the song!
Keeping with the national final song theme, we’ve got I Go Where You Go by Jenny Augusta, which was a part of the Norwegian national final, and Color My World, which featured in the Danish national final this year. From Portugal, we’ve got David Gomes with the song My Paradise, which featured in the Portuguese national final this year. From Latvia, we’ve got Franco Franco with the Mickeen Remix of their Supernova song called Up.
