I fell in love, I fell in love
I gave my heart to el diablo, el diablo
I gave it up, I gave it up, because
He tells me I'm his angel, I'm his angel

Tonight we're gonna burn in a party
We're wild as fire that's on the loose
Hotter than sriracha on our bodies
Ta-Taco tamale, yeah, that's my mood
All this spicy melts my icy edges, baby, it's true
Tonight we're gonna burn in a party
It's heaven in hell with you

Mama-mamacita, tell me what to do
Lo-la-lo-la-loca, I'm breaking the rules

I fell in love, I fell in love
I gave my heart to el diablo, el diablo
I gave it up, I gave it up, because
He tells me I'm his angel, I'm his angel
Oh-oh-oh, el diablo, el diablo
I fell in love, I fell in love
I gave my heart to el diablo, el diablo

Tonight we're gonna dance in the moonlight
Droppin' our lashes on the floor
Hair flip-flip made you look twice
Touch me, touch me, mi amor
All this spicy melts my icy edges, baby, for sure
Tonight we're gonna dance in the moonlight
And then we're gonna do it some more

Mama-mamacita, tell me what to do
Lo-la-lo-la-loca, I'm breaking the rules

I fell in love, I fell in love
I gave my heart to el diablo, el diablo
I gave it up, I gave it up, because
He tells me I'm his angel, I'm his angel
Oh-oh-oh, el diablo, el diablo
I fell in love, I fell in love
I gave my heart to el diablo, el diablo

I fell in love, I fell in love
I gave my heart to el diablo, el diablo
I gave it up, I gave it up, because
He tells me I'm his angel, I'm his angel
Oh-oh-oh, el diablo, el diablo, oh-oh
I fell in love, I fell in love
I gave my heart to el diablo, el diablo

Tsagkrinou in 2021:
Tonight we gonna dance in the moonlight
Droppin' our lashes on the floor
Hair flip-flip, made you look twice
Touch me, touch me, mi amor

A fundamentalist Christian got arrested because he threatened someone because of the "satanic verses of El Diablo" in Cyprus.

Maybe his punishment will be to listen to El Diablo in his cell all the time. :eek:

I... liked this way better than I expected. It was sort of a curveball: judging by the title, I was expected some mediterranean/latin pop, and then we got this, so at least it took me by surprise.

And the song itself is... pretty good! I think it goes as over the top as it can while not reaching ridicule, and that chorus is A TANK.

10/12... and it may grow even more.

I love it how they used an image of a GREEK entry for news concerning an entry from CYPRUS.

Some North Americans never change xheart

That Greek entry did have pretty much the most Satanic staging I've ever seen at Eurovision though, so I can see where they're coming from. I would have wanted to protect the children too from all the frills and lace.

Let's see if the Cypriot Christians succeded to take the song down. The news alone have been the most unnecessary, unneeded, and WTF drama we will have in the 2021 contest. And surprisingly, it comes from Cyprus out of all.

I am seriously not a fan of Lady GaGa - the only song of hers I like is Alejandro and this reminds me of that. Mixed with Madonna's La isla Bonita.

Don't get me wrong this song is amazing. It's my number 1. It's a mix of spain / latino music / modern sounds / it has everything!!! I just hope she delivers on the night

EDIT: It also has the vibe of Deetah 'El Paradiso Rico' granted that is sampling la isla bonita but it has something Deetah about it too

What do you expect from people that were bowing down to the slippers of "Saint Efraim" some days ago. xrofl

Perhaps it wouldn't have been a bad idea to change the song's title from El Diablo to Saint Efraim.

I fell in love, I fell in love
I gave my heart to Saint Efraim, to Saint Efraim.


They can bring his slippers on stage as well. xrofl

This comment is really unnecessary and disrespectful.

I don't agree with all the talk about the song being satanic or whatever but to laugh at people because they went to worship the remains of Saint Efrem is not a good look.

Well, sorry. But the slippers? Come on. Anyway.

Elena Tsagrinou talked in the news and said El Diablo is about a bad boyfriend who is like a devil but he still can't get away from him. xshrug

I am in that minority who is not getting wet over it, sorry

For me it is merely a discount Lady Gaga ~2010. But it is well-produced I admit.

But it is surely going to nab place in top 10 of the contest, because sexy lasses performing this kind of songs tend to do so, and it is certain that it will be staged well.

I just hope this doesn't turn out to be another Maruv meets Lozano & Esma situation.

Just change the songtitle and the lyrics to "Santiago" and be done with it
