Performer: Nina Zilli
Song: L'amore è femmina
I heard the song Nina sent to the San Remo song contest 'Per Sempre', and I was not impressed with that song. I like this song. It is firming into second in the odds and I believe this can win. As a song, it is the most impressive I have heard thus far in the contest.
I love power songs sung by women. this is that. the chorus appears to translate to 'love is female, if don't receive, you don't get'. The thing about most power songs, is they are tawdry and sexual. They should be sexy, and this is musically sexy and lyrically very 'fuck you'
This needs an awesome performance to beat that swedish song, but that should be easy, this song is made for performing. She just has to avoid the belly shake. shake hips, shake arse, don't shake belly.
I do have a Soft spot for the retro flavoured songs that show up in Eurovision, like Germany in 2007 (though i like that Germany sung 'guess who rules the world') , but when you go back to the actual retro stuff, maybe they are too submissive.
