Latvia is known for sending some pretty out there performances to Eurovision, and this year is no exception. I usually love Lavia, but this year I am not so sure.
Song: Cake to Bake
I just want to know if this song is just a giant euphemism for a virgin trying to get someone pregnant. 'Cake to bake' is like 'bun in the oven', right? Maybe I am reading too much into the chorus:
I've got a cake to bake – I’ve got no clue at all (cep, cep, cep, cep, cep kuuku)
I've got a cake to bake – and haven't done that before (cep, cep, cep, cep, cep kuuku)
don't be proud, mate please don't bother,
go, come on and ask your mother,
how to bake, how to bake, bake that cake...
Maybe I am reading too much into the song because really it could be about anything. It is a song that mentioned Atlantis, the lost Arc, the 'Chinese Wall' and it references Sherlock, and that's just in the first verse. It is like someone decided to see how many cultural references they could stick in the one song. It is the European 'Happy Birthday Helen
This song could be fun when performed at Eurovision, Latvia usually is. I don't think it will qualify for the final and the bookmakers rate it a snowballs chance in hell, but it is a nice try. Thanks Latvia... NEXT!
Aarzemniek is Latvian for foreigner, and lots of countries get foreigners to perform for them. Anna Vissi is better known for representing Greece than her home country of Cyprus, maybe because she has represented Greece twice, the first being in 1980
