A new year... a new Eurovision...

Here I will be commenting on this and that... as I have done in the last couple of years.

I will probably start writing something more concrete when ESDM (El Sueño de Morfeo) present their 4 songs in February.

In the meantime, all I'll say is that most of what is known so far about Malm
ӧ  2013 is not all that promising: 

  • new rules (which are open to abuse)
  • (horrid) songs known so far
  • some of the withdrawals (particularly Turkey & Portugal)
  • ...and when one thought it could not get any worse: (camp) logo and (patronising) slogan
  • what next?

On a more positive note, I am moderately optimistic about the selection of ESDM to represent Spain: young, attractive,  fresh, bright, positive, contemporary, "relevant" (e.g. a band with a presence in hit charts), far from the usual Spain-in-Eurovision clichés, etc. A far cry from last year's "greasy" and rancid approach. Just waiting for the songs. The only worry for me now is... that trios have rarely fared well in the ESC (especially female+male+male trios). We'll see.....
