Look where we are
We used to be the rockstars
Who never thought of no harm
'Til this thing we call life stopped gleaming
I wish there was a way to go back dreaming

Remembering gets so hard
When time is moving so fast
Wish there was a way to know that we're in
The good old days before we all just leave 'em

I tried getting rid of the pain
I tried to make it go away, but it probably won't change
Always thinking 'bout my own worries
Remember back when we had no worries?
Now life just ain't hitting the same
I sit and miss and reminisce about innocent old days
When I was afraid of nobody
Now I'm afraid of being a nobody

Don't wanna leave my bed
I'll just stay and never get it together
'Cause the voices in my head
They keep saying it'll never get better

Look where we are
We used to be the rockstars
Who never thought of no harm
'Til this thing we call life stopped gleaming
I wish there was a way to go back dreaming

Remembering gets so hard
When time is moving so fast
Wish there was a way to know that we're in
The good old days before we all just leave 'em

Sometimes I got this kinda sting that's right inside my chest
Its only purpose is convincing me that I'm a mess
And even though it's always been an uninvited guest
It finds a way in nonetheless
Wish I could change my address
And you know
Just be somebody else for a couple of days
Although I'm pretty sure we all feel the same kinda way
'Cause if you think about it
Aren't we all set in a place
Where we look back at better days
And wish they weren't so far away?

I wish that I could just go back and be the way I was
I wish I'd still not give a damn 'bout how I come across
I wish the way I saw myself had never gotten lost
In all the worries, all the thoughts, overthinking all the parts
So exhausted, always caught up inside my doubts and flaws
And I'ma count them all
Somebody catch me, I'm 'bout to fall
Yeah, I'm 'bout to fall
Can we press pause?
Or do a restart
And be who we are?

We used to be the rockstars
Who never thought of no harm
'Til this thing we call life stopped gleaming
I wish there was a way to go back dreaming

Remembering gets so hard
When time is moving so fast
Wish there was a way to know that we're in
The good old days before we all just leave 'em

Didn't we?
(We used to be the rockstars)
Didn't we?
(We used to be the rockstars)
(We used to be the rockstars)

Remembering gets so hard
When time is moving so fast
Wish there was a way to know that we're in
The good old days before we all just leave 'em​

Eros Atomus - Alive = 1/10


Well, Anxiety is alright. I kind of like it in a I've just had to listen through a really poor bunch of songs but this last one is actually kind of ok sort of way. It's catchy. I certainly feel the pain of our German friends here. This national final is UK levels of mundane with a strange emphasis on very American sounding middle of the road radio pop. I wasn't even into that Eskimo Callboy song people were going crazy for but at least it was actually doing something. A country of 83 million people and these are your six best? Nah.

I feel bad for German fans 🫂

Nah. Our mood is appropriate.

Why do we want to see EC so badly?
Actually, I don't really care about rhem BUT they would be something unique, distinctive in sound, something different.

I'm so fed up with our broadcaster usually coming with the same style of songs for a national final.

The last French national final was way more diverse than we've seen from Germany since 2016?

EC were the reason why Germany rose in the betting odds and they were giving us hope to finally have an act to be rooting for.

I don't want to get another mediocre and bland song performed by a former The Voice contestant/talent show act with a solid voice.
That's not enough... these songs are never perceived ad the worst of the night but they usually end up being bottom 5 or worse in Eurovision.

We simply lost hope....like many British fans.

I was called unprofessional, bitter, overdramatic and so on back in 2015, 2017, 2019, 2021 as well because "our entry isn't that bad and you should wait for the grand final" - but no, I can detect turds of entries quite easily xD

From what we've heard so far, our national final won't be much better than the Irish NF.

I hope I'm wrong. I hope we're wrong but I honestly think that we will be utterly disappointed by the assorted selection of inoffensive and generic and non-competitive songs in English by wannabe singer-songwriter and former talent show participants in an hour.
French NF being diverse?!?! It's 95% what we call "variété française" which is played on mainstream FM radio. And when did France send something daring at esc? It's exactly what you described, a bunch of former the voice contestants.

I don't say that the German NF is good but the praise for EC (which was sure NOT to be in the line-up) led to something off towards the contestants. Just as if I were pissed year after year because the dø or Yseult are not competing for France.

People on here liked Ben Dolic's sing, which was the exact same quality than half of the German songs competing this year.

Can you translate it for those who do not speak german?

"they are great guys"
"I enjoyed their Performance"
"please apply again"
"we discussed a lot about them"
"there was a lot pro and contra"
"in the end they came very far"

and the usual standard stuff.

😩

They should have chosen Eskimo Callboy to compete, if not for another reason, to have variety in the nf...
