First couple of tones, we think yay. Then some lines from the vocalist, we think nay. 30 seconds in, and we think Poland will give us a headache.
Poland is a country Good Evening Europe have learned to like very much. There are just so many great people from there. In Norway, Polish people really take care of everything we lazy people cannot do – from building our houses to doing our regular wax on wax off. Polish people are creators of everything good in this world, including bison grass vodka We love them, and we don’t know what we’d do without them. That’s why it hurts us so much to say the Polish Eurovision story is kinda horrendous. Couple of highlights from the last decade: Some not so funky astronaut with red hair and an indescribable voice paired up with a furry lady singing in German, some other guys in green hair and masks tried to follow their hearts and some rather sad people tried to convince us it’s time to party. Well, we believe our Polish friends when they tell us Eurovision is not such a high priority in their country.
This year Poland has sent a pretty swell looking bloke with a not so swell sounding song. We were just so impressed by the beautiful ethnic beginning. Great, way to go, we managed to think before Marcin Mrozinski started promising us to stay forever. Now, that was a bit long for us. Even 2.53 minutes were. It’s not the worst of songs. Really isn’t. It’s just so frustrating when someone promise you the world and you only get a small piece of it. Some small, or large, adjustments here and we would have had the prince and all of the kingdom. It’s like Poland thinks we wouldn’t like them if they were themselves. But we would have! We want the most Polish of Poland.
Now it seems a little bit like Marcin is stuck on a train somewhere. Would of course have loved to be on that train, though. This lovely prince does look like a million dollars, and we can’t wait to see him up close.
