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

El diablo​

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.

Not necessarily though, Cyprus 2019 failed to make a dent in the top 10. Plus Tamta is a more well-known name than Elena.
So I wouldn't rule out that this song may be a classic massive fanwank and fail to qualify.

Being well-known in Greece and Cyprus, as Tamta was, won't help in Eurovision. This song here is better than Replay and with proper staging and performance should do better than replay.

Maybe I am overrating its potential result-wise indeed. I did like Replay more than this btw.

I think Replay would have done much better without having Fuego the year before. Not as good as Fuego, but better than it actually did. Since it was so similar, it lacked at bit the wow effect and because people had Fuego in mind, they probably were less inclined to vote twice for the "same" song. Now we had a some time in between, so El Diablo has some chances to do better than Replay, still I don't think it will reach the result of Fuego.

However, there's a big problem: I don't find Elena to be as extraordinarily charismatic as Eleni. Fuego's success partly comes from the way Eleni performed the song and the way Eleni has THE look. I find Elena to be a little bit more, if not as charismatic, as Tamta.

exactly, that's why I don't think this will even come close zu Eleni's success.

But El Diablo is basically a rip off of Lady Gaga's Bad Romance and is in the same vein of Eleni's and Tamta's songs. I'm pretty sure people are going to dismiss her on the basis that Cyprus only wants to do well by sending female singers doing bangers. I'm not entirely convinced Elena can do that well. I'm pretty sure the most she'll do is Tamta level.

wish CyBC would promote some actually local Cypriot artists with their own songs instead of recycling Fuego for the second time, this time even including the spanish title gimmick

also there is something fundamentally unsettling about the blatant advertisting in the video, gives me straight up Black Mirror vibes.

I have the same feeling. Perhaps my post came across more positivly than it was meant. I expect ot to be sightly above Tamta (ie perhaps one or two places)

Hilarious and ridiculous that the orthodox church demands to see El Diablo expunged as well.

Are they stupid? They should go outside, get some fresh air and relax. They pretend like that harmless pop song dealing with a (bad) relationship is like a blasphemous song by Behemoth xD

first time listening the song, I have a mixed feeling about this one.
At one point, I like the chorus part but you can tell that this song is a ripoff of bad romance, or at least inspired by it.
At one point, I am not really fond of the verse.
