Azerbaijan

With both semi-finals completed, it’s time to finally review the final country, the winner from last year, Azerbaijan! There song last year kind of unexpectedly won. Truthfully at first I didn’t like Azerbaijan’s song last year, but after a few listen’s it grew on me and I learned to love it.

Their song this year is about the same. The first few times is kind of eh, but after a few listens you enjoy it a lot more. For that Azerbaijan gets the growth award. I think the only thing that’s going to hinder this song is gonna be that Germany and the UK both also have sad songs and there might be too much competition. That might give Cyprus and Russia the inch they need to make their move for first place. But only time will tell, and there is only 1 more day until tomorrow. Let’s see what the future holds. Will Azerbaijan be one of a few countries that host Eurovision back to back?

You, you were my best friend
You were my everything
So don’t leave me now

You, you were the best of me
The reason that I believe
So don’t leave me now

And I, tried to keep us alive
But you were cold cold cold
Now every second that my heart skips it ends
But I, still wanna keep us alive
But it’s cold cold cold cold

When the music dies
It’s all black and white
And there’s no sunrise
When the music dies

Now you, you can’t even look at me
You say you’re not gonna speak to me
Oh oh oh oh

And I, tried to keep us alive
But you were cold cold cold
Now every second that my heart skips it ends
But I, still wanna keep us alive
But it’s cold cold cold cold

When the music dies
It get’s cold when there’s no sunrise
So cold, now every second that my heart skips it ends

And I, tried to keep us alive
Oh but you were cold cold cold
Now every second, my heart beat ends
But I, still wanna keep us, alive
But you were cold cold
Oh… When the music dies
