Israel 2014 - Mei Finegold - Be Proud


So tonight the three Israeli songs have been revealed. And while none of them are world beaters, they've each got a little something about them. Perhaps it's Mei's deep throated manly voice. Perhaps it's the slightly dark tone to each of them. But whatever it is, she gives a threesome of fairly ordinary songs a decent doomy atmosphere.

Popular wisdom already suggests that Same Heart is set to take her to Denmark, but I've got a little fancy for this one. Imagine a Hebrew Bond-theme, that builds in menace and stabby pretend strings, only to let you down with a mediocre pub lady chorus.

Not amazing, but not half bad all the same.
