I wasn't a big fan of "On Fire", at first it looked just well done song with some catchy tunes, but it was a grower to a degree that it popped into your mind and you couldn't get it out, even tho you wouldn't listen to it on your own, but it was with you. I don't know if that will happen with "Discotheque", but to me it starts the same like with "On Fire"... and I can guess how it will end.
Lot of Lith people were eager to send The Roop to Rotterdam even without hearing a new song, for the sake of justice and so on, only way for The Roop to screw it up was a poor song, but it surely didn't happen, a lot of positive reviews, so it's fair to say that we have a winner and it will be the one with huuuge margin. Gabrielius had to come with huge song to beat that, but IMO it didn't happen. He should make it to final, but no one will conquer The Roop.

Tumblr, mostly.
On Fire was miles better.

Discoteque just rings hollow and mercenary for me. What a shame.

I like Discoteque better, although I don't know whether it'll be as polarizing as On Fire (not that On Fire is even more polarizing, but the hype was built quickly with that one). But I do think Discotheque will have a good chance on the contest. It's also something I'll listen outside of the contest's context.

Ok I underestimated this in the morning. I mean I already liked it back then but now I'm just so in love with it! I don't remember if I have been obsessed that much with any Eurovision song before. xheartxheartxheart

The music video ist just excellent. Everything is so well-made! They are delivering a completely new song concept and once again the visuals and the dance moves are out of this world.

Let's just pray for it winning the NF but I honestly don't have any doubts anyway!

And let's be honest, this can be an international hit and the music video has US star quality. I also think it can be something for both juries and televoters.

Gabriel ... didn't really catch me at the first listening.:( I need to listen to it a few more times, hopefully I will get into it without trying hard. Same with The Roop. Unlike others though I wasn't a huge On Fire-Fan last year. But so far I have the feeling that I may like Discotheque more. Let's see after a few more tries.
Try more, believe me, it is awesome..

400,000 views on the Discoteque video within the space of nine hours. Almost double of what Eurovision televote winners KEiiNO managed for their live performance video in a week. Why are we even holding this NF again? Four pointless shows for a selection that's suffering quality wise, being way weaker than it usually is because there's just no point in even trying. The only way this could go wrong for The Roop is if those in charge have accidentally invited the Dream Team feat. Christer Bjorkman onto the jury.

My Guy is an enjoyable, hazy, synthy vibe that makes you just want to wistfully sway along. However, even as a massive Gabrielius Vagelis fan, I can see there's one clear winner:

THE ROOP could've easily just relied on pity from televoters and sent in any song; instead, they worked their hearts, souls, and dance moves off to give us an anthem in Discoteque, with another fine-tuned aesthetic laid out.

The Roop would win regardless with any song, the selection was created to lengthen the time. Surely Gabrielius' song deserves the final show in Lithuania, it is well constructed.

I've just silenced the words "Roop", "The Roop", "Gabrielius", "Vagelis" and "Gabrielius Vagelis" on Twitter. Finally. What a liberation! I couldn't stand my timeline to be infested by them.

Since I wasn't too crazy about "On Fire" as I really found it shallow outside of a chatchy chorus, I didn't expect to like "Discoteque" but it's a pretty interesting entry actually. Just like in KEiiNO's case, they didn't just rehash their previous success, they built upon it. There's a darkness present in this song, a nocturnal mood that catches my attention. The music video also has such a Twin Peaks mood.

Good job, The Roop! You deserve to win this useless NF for sure.

The thing is, I can still see tweets about them whenever somebody quotes or mentions their shitty songs. Ugh. At this point I will have a list of silenced words long one kilometer, but how can I silence songtitles if they are also songtitles of songs that I love (like "My guy" by Mary Wells)?
