Croatia

This year Croatia sends us the powerful singer Nina Badrić. We’ll start off by handing Nina the naked man award! When watching the video associated with this song you will quickly notice that most of the song has half naked men randomly falling with nothing by a bed sheet around their groins. Oh how I wish those sheets were not there! But that’s an issue for another day.

Nina gives us a wonderful ballad that very quickly reminded me of Serbia’s winner from 2007. If you were around then you will very quickly remember Molitva by Marija Šerifović. Marija just destroyed the stage with her song. Most analysts though she wouldn’t win, but due to politics and her epic performance she came to beat the competition by over 70 points. The only question that Nina has to answer is how powerful is her song?

In order to come back and win this competition like Marija did 5 years ago, Nina has to perform this song without error. She needs to take all the emotion she has ever had and just bear it out on the stage for all to see. If her performance can show the strength that Marija’s did a few years back then she might just have a chance of getting really far in this competition. Who knows, she might just be the upset this year and take Eurovision to Croatia.

Listen to me when I say, there’s nothing I haven’t tried.
You’re still in my thoughts, you still feel mine.
And I hear you’re in love and people tell me
That you just don’t care.
Like I’ve lost my mind, I still keep hoping for you.
Well heaven settles every debt and remembers everything you owe.
Each of us dreams, but heaven sets the path along which you go.
Heaven settles every debt, someone up above sees it all,
And these tears of mine will weigh heavily on your soul.

I will hide myself behind cold wet streets,
So that no one may ever see
That I meant nothing to you.
And I hear you’re in love and people tell me
That you just don’t care.
Like I’ve lost my mind,
I still keep hoping for you.
Well heaven settles every debt and remembers everything you owe.
Each of us dreams, but heaven sets the path along which you go.
Heaven settles every debt, someone up above sees it all,
And these tears of mine will weigh heavily on your soul.

Heaven settles every debt,
Someone up above sees it all,
Heaven settles every debt.
