Switzerland 2014 - Anthony - Throwing Bottles

When the inevitable happens and people start to bleat that a song that is either noisy, creative, has a smart lyric or is sung by an ugly man is the worst song that's happened in the history of ever, let alone Eurovision 2014, may I just draw their attention to this small gem...

  1. You know, what's really sad about this one is that there really is a song in there somewhere. Not necessarily a fabulous song, but at least one with some detectable musical merit, with a nice hook in the chorus.

    The guy's not much of a singer, and the accompaniment, if you can call it that, seems to have been copy/pasted in after the fact. But if he'd had access to an actual musician friend or two to help him express his musical ideas, this actually could've been viable.

  2. Good point there, string of numbers. For all its faults and lacking, you know that he absolutely means it - and how many of the songs that make it through to Denmark will we be able to truly say that about?!

  3. It's like Tom Waits does Gil Scott-Heron.
    Sort of.

    And thanks for giving me the biggest laugh of the week with your 'string of numbers' comment above!
