RobertI was never a fan of such kind of music, but I must confess that this composition has enchanted me from the first listening. I can’t explain definitely what I love more in the song: magnificent music, strong vocals of Margaret, great beat, lyrics or the whole these options in common. This is a song which I want to listen more than one time. It’s a gorgeous entry indeed, which has a great potential to be a winner or to finish at least in Top 3. The magical music will captivate lots of people all over the Europe as it did with me.

 

Alex ChandhokIt’s Pop Jim, but not as we know it. Margaret’s voice is very calm and melodic, in stark contrast to the dark, intense nature of the backing track. Using real drums also adds to the impact of what is a brutal, in your face number. The singing is a of a high quality and the song structure is correctly kept simple to emphasise the melody. Norway dared to change things up a bit, and I expect them to be rewarded with a high ranking in May. The Chandhok approves!

Grandpa WatermanAs a old man, you dont expect me to like dubstep or whatever is hat todays music is but the way she sang it was magnificent, I’m sure she would do well in Malmo and possibly a winner!

 

 

Scotty Too HottyRobyn eat your heart out! This. Is. Incredible. It justattacks and will have a huge impact in Malmo for sure. The audience will beabsolutely loving this! From start to finish, it makes you want to watch theperformance. It’s different and will stand out from the crowd. Margaret has areally powerful voice that carries and has a striking image that will beremembered by everyone watching. I wouldn’t want to mess with her though! Oneof those ladies you wouldn’t muck about with! I’m predicting this will be top5. A fantastic effort Norway!

 

MorenikA great song, a wonderful song, a contender to beat my darling Krista! Clearly a woman after my own heart, someone who would eat whatever I gave her knowing that I put love into it, among other things, as she does the same! We both feed each other our loves, but then food poisoning, oh well! Such is the price of adoration!

 

 

Petronella PoetryWow…I just say wow…What an amazing song this is. I hope this guy she is singing about is having huge embarresment of his. She sings the song absolutely amazing, really touching and exciting. She makes the song inviting. She grabs you at the beginning of the song and doesn’t realese you till it’s over.Here you don’t need any pyrotechnics, changing lights or a blower. Here is my winner of Eurovision 2013! She is my queen!

Eau d'yre  LizzyEau: Ooh, this is certainly modern era music. This has all the necessary ingredients to survive in the contest, thanks to the young viewers’ votes.
Liz: This song shows that you don’t need to rely on overused synthesizer sounds of the cliche type like last year’s winner to please young people’s ears. It’s a surprisingly good and contemporary effort from the Norwegians to send something like this.
Eau: I think it could be called… (to be continued)

I feed you my love, ewww gross. I like Margaret, she’s pretty, in a British horsy sort of way. She’s got style and the voice. That being said, the song is okay but not overwhelmingly good.  It’s too dark and somewhat depressing for me.

 

Glittery S BobThis Prodigy style song is a really good one with a sound atypical and this is the reason I’m sure it will rich a good place in the end. However, I see the same problem as many of the songs this year, it is overly repetitive.

 

Britni SpirsovicNorway am I liking this? Hehe, see the pun there, Norway = no way. Nowhere in the song can I find faults. It is wonderfully mastered, the instrumentals, the vocals. I can’t find anything wrong quality-wise. However, I do not enjoy listening to it, I am a pop-star after all.

 

 

King Valentino XVIIThis is a quite a dark, noisy, imposing number. Strip all the edgy gloss away and you are left with a rather average pop song however. Margaret Burger really makes this what it is. She is great. I was very impressed and intrigued with this song to begin with.. Overtime though sadly, the urge to hear it again has faded. Margaret Burger earns my respect though. I really like a Margaret Burger.

Emma MagnusonThe instrumentation of this song sounds so scary! This girl has very nice voice, and the vocal part is nice, but all these electro sounds in the background scare me! Sorry neighbors, but I prefer more earthly sounds. I’m a romantic soul deep inside. I prefer songs that have emotions inside, this is just an electronic product with no emotions at all.

Dark MasterYou swollen-headed, imperious blonde think that you can throne yourself as the winner this year? Not on my watch and not with this recycled electronic bash. I do not know what the fans see in you or this song, but I have seen through you… yes, I do have your x-rays and I can surely count how many bones you have. You got your fame with the fans, but fame isn’t everything..is it Ms. Burger?

    I will never, ever understand Norway’s appeal this year..this is predictable to an uprecedented degree imo and generic in a bad way..Plus I am still questioning her singing abilities..Simply below mediocre in every aspect..

    I prefer this song to Denmark, but I still don’t see it winning, because I feel Georgia or Ukraine will pull it out this year.
