oh wow how ~quirky~ you are for saying outlaw in 'em was better than arcade,,,, big round of applause to you 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 come on.. at least choose like 'calm after the storm' or is that too generic as well?

yeah… I might be kinda quirky sometimes lol (thanks for the applause)

now let me explain you something, so that you can understand my tastes in music:

Rock is my thing anon… I grew up listening to rock and I absolutely LOVE rock (not those wannabes that believe that because they scream as if they were being choked they are automatically rockers, such as this Hungarian band that went to Eurovision last year - I refer to bands such as Guns N’ Roses, Bon Jovi, Metallica, Europe, Scorpions… just to mention a few)

And that retro rock song that Waylon performed last year totally won me. Something different in the festival. Just like Eugent’s song. Eugent was my winner and Waylon my second winner. Yet it seems that Eurovision doesn’t like rock at all… Since Lordi, no rock song has won the festival (please correct me if I’m wrong)

But I also LOVE pop as long as it’s not way too generic. You can find commercial songs that are really great, but sadly pop nowadays is full of mediocre songs

And regarding The Common Linnets’ song, I must confess I didn’t like it at the first listening, it did grew on me afterwards. Definitely it’s a beautiful song but sadly that was Conchita’s year, I think

Portugal: Telemóveis 

Lyrics score: 9/10

I’m impressed, those lyrics are deep and they’re written almost like it’s a poem. 

I read it like the cell phone is your connection with the “saudade”, and this feeling of saudade is actually killing him (and all of us), so then he wants to brake the cell phone because he either lives better or the saudade kills him anyways. This could also be a metaphor for cell phones connecting us to the internet/social media and how that has a bad impact on our real lives.
