Nah you're not alone. It's not that I'm against any of these songs, it's just that I can't find anything striking in any of them. Tbh I wouldn't even know which one to chose as a favorite I guess I need a few more listen as for now they're just... there.
I get a little frustrated when hearing the three versions sung by Eden. She is such a star, such charisma and she really makes all three songs better, but the songs are just not good enough.
So I don't know. Eden is a strong performer, maybe she has the star quality enough to go through to the final. But if I am being honest, I would scrap all three songs and write something completly else and send that to Rotterdam.
After watching the music videos, I feel INCREDIBLY frustrated. Whoever decided that concept for "Set Me Free" music video is ideal should be shot. That song requires a bright, fun fiesta video. Not that sterile, dark and cool vibe. That is the best form of sabotage.
The other 2 music videos are well executed to match the vibe of the songs.
At this point, personally, "Set Me Free" doesn't stand a chance against the other 2 songs.
If I remember correctly, Eden won't be performing those 3 songs 'live" like last year right? So the public will be voting based on the studio versions with the music videos.
If any of the other 2 songs win, Israel is highly likely going to end up at the right hand side of my ranking.
What a WASTE of talent.
I think set me free has one of the best mv. La La Love is also good, but Ue La La video looks cheap af.
I'm probably going to be butchered, but after reading Feker Libi's lyrics, again... I don't think Feker Libi is any better lyrically than these songs. It might seem better because there's multiple languages in the song.
Ironically, La La Love seems to be the most lyrically sensible song in this group of three.
