I decided to sample Eurovision this year, well one song (which is still a sample), and this was it. It sounds and looks like a million other songs I’ve heard in the pre scoring recaps over the years. It’s also a kind of reductive tick box exercise in what should please gays too. It’s a no from me.

this boy is NOT for sale :disco:

I don’t really know what the gay narrative is this time. It seems to be just shouting each other down :D maybe that’s business as usual

I LOVE THIS SONG AND I CANT FUCKING BELIEVE YOU DONT TOO

I HATE THIS SONG AND I CANT FUCKING BELIEVE YOU DONT TOO

IM INDIFFERENT TO THIS SONG BUT IM ANGRY TOO FOR SOME REASON

Does @OutSynk like ANYTHING other than Verona?!
Well it might seem so to you considering the fact that you're forever stuck in the purgatory known as the Eurovision forum.

Also Malta LOVE a bribe, so I'd have them as favourites to win the jury vote at this point.

I could so easily see this as the jury winner but I don't think my heart could take it, waiting to see if there's another "Malta, you received.....20 points" on the way to spoil the party at the end :(

I feel like the final 45 seconds of this could be a total moment if they get it right, and we KNOW Destiny is a charismatic and capable performer too.

I did like All My Love last year, but it was perhaps a bit OLD MAIDEN for somebody so young. This feels a lot more age-adjacent although the lack of memorable chorus could do them in in the end.

I wonder if Malta do FINALLY win after decades of trying so hard they'll just GIVE UP completely post :D It must be an expensive yearly venture for them to constantly LOSE!

I just wish this was on Spotify already. Why is it taking so long again?

Just listened to this again hoping for a real moment; the pre-chorus bit is one of the strongest parts of all of this year's songs, but then I re-experienced the disappointment of the trumpet non-chorus and her flippy flappy hand dancing. I still love the song but am frustrated about how with a few tweaks this could have been incredible.

Oh FINE I’ll stop with the DC jokes even though he’s completely fine with it and it’s not like he finds me attractive or anything hence the jokes and it’s not as if anyone else ever declares their attraction for other posters. HEAVEN FORBID!

Interesting to see all that, thanks! How many of those Shum streams are from when it was a different song though :side-eye:

I know they were late on, but I'd have thought Iceland would have gone straight to the top of the streams instead of languishing behind in 19th! And that's despite being in first and second position on the main two Spotify playlists.
