Song: Echo (You and I)
With the success of the MILF that Azerbaijan sent to Eurovision last year, France has decided to send one this year. Problem is that I can't watch this clip without seeing Anggun (who is Indonesian) saying 'Me love you long time', which is wrong because Cynthia from Priscilla was Filipino not Indonesian....
The song starts off sounding like an 80's electronica track, but ends sounding like a summer network promotion for Channel 7. The song doesn't rate in the betting but I don't think anyone associated with the song really cares. If it doesn't get picked up as a network promo by next summer, it would have already made its money in gay nightclubs.
I am still trying to find the line in this song, which is obviously in the French lyrics, that translates to 'You buy, you buy'. 'Vous achetez, vous achetez' has to be in there somewhere.
France imports singers to Eurovision as well as Exports them. in 1965, a french singer represented Monaco while an Algerian represented France. What a wonderous international competition Eurovision is.
