HUNGARY- HEAT 1 RESULTS AND HEAT 2 SONGS
Last Saturday night Hungary picked their first 6 qualifiers to the semi finals to be held in two weeks time. In a very long, drawn out affair, we got to these six artists
Élet- Leander Kills
Nyitva a ház- Roma Soul
Deák- spoon 21
Rain- Viki Singh
White Shadows- Dávid Henderson
Were voted through with the jury and televote scores while
Was voted through afterwards, as the highest televoted song not already in the top 5.
But that was last week. THIS WEEK we have another 10 songs to whet your musical appetite, or perhaps, to make you want to diet musically, who knows? Luckily, I will make it easier with my (not so) expert opinion!
JOCI PÁPAI- Origo
An atmospheric ethno pop number, with a mid song rap. Not my thing
ORSI SAPSZON- Hunyd Le Szemed
A little Hungarian Disney style jazz. Points for being different, again not really my thing
THE COUPLE- Vége Van
A soft melodic piece, with a nice build, but ultimately goes nowhere. Leaves me with no real emotion, not a good thing for a perspective ESC entrant
ZÄVODI + OLIVÉR BERKES- #háttérzaj
This is different. The intro had me intrigued, and it just continued on from there, very unusual. I like this a lot.
KYRA FEDOR- Got To Be A Day
The big Euroclub stomper. Big pop tune, that usually either slays, or falls very flat dependent on live vocals, I love it!
ENIKŐ MURI- Jericho
Generic pop, a la Katy Perry a few years ago, so it will probably do well. But I don’t buy it.
BENJÁMIN PÁL- Father’s Eyes
Very radio friendly pop with a nice sentiment. The type of ‘safe’ song that will make the final, but not much more
GIGI RADICS- See It Through
The traditional ESC ballad. Good voice, but will probably be lost in this company
More radio ready pop, this time with a bit more pace, and a slight Icelandic pop sound. Very easy to groove to, I’ll eat my arm if this doesn’t make the semi
TOTOVA- Hosszú Idők
Well… this is left of centre. A familiar melody with lots of little odd touches. I like it
There you have it. Ten more glorious songs to deliberate over. Which 6 deserve a semi placing? We’ll find out Saturday night, Europe time! Cast your top six on the facebook poll!
