As you know, today RTVE, the Spanish national broadcaster, has revealed full songs of the six candidates that will compete on February 1st in special show called Objetivo Eurovision and it will start at 22.30 CET. Why so late you may think? Well that is prime time on television in Spain, so there is no doubt that it will have huge ratings.
You can listen the songs on the official website here: http://www.rtve.es/television/20160120/escucha-ya-seis-eurocanciones-aspirantes-eurovision-2016/1287340.shtml
Now here is our review of the songs, so be free to share your opinion with us in the comments bellow.
Barei – Say Yay – Judging the first comments Barei is the hot favorite to fly the Spanish flag in Stockholm. With slow intro, song is going up, up, up and so will you. She really knows how to sing, so I would like to see more focus on her on stage, rather on performance.
Electric Nana – Now – Well her nickname isn’t there for nothing. By the first beats Nana is flirting with you. Modern pop tunes are something what I like to listen, but after few times, this is starting to be a bit like a trainwreck.
Maria Isabel – La Vida Es Solo Una (There’s only one life) – Even though the songs was published two months ago it is still eligable to be in the national final. This is a true Spanish song made for summer and beach bar. Here I would like see lots of dance moves and it will be perfect for Eurovision stage.
Maverick – Un Mundo Mas Feliz (Much happier world) – At first I thought I was listening to a song by Enrique Iglesias, but it way better. This song will just awaken the inner dancer in you. It’s all about traditional Spanish rhythms but with a bith of young, fresh, modern influence.
Xuso Jones – Victorious – Even without reading the names of the authors of the song, you can figure it out it’s made by Swedish team. Xuso is singing in both English and Spanish and you can just feel his positive energy with just listening to the song. Now imagine how will it be live.
Salvador Beltran – Dias De Alegria (Days of – If it’s a rainy day outside, just play Salvador’s songs and you will feel like the sun is out. Very optimistic, also filled with traditional influence, but I have to say that I don’t see much Eurovision potential in it.
Listening to these six songs I would have to say that my favorites are Xuso Jones and Maria Isabel. Be free to tell us yours. Who would you like to see representing Spain this year?
