Song of the Day – We all have Eurovision songs that we love and listen to regularly. But then there are songs we might only remember because someone posts a link on Facebook or a Forum. In between our rankings we will shuffle through Eurovision history and present a random song each day to bring back memories and give you the chance to discuss songs and years during the “Eurovision drought”. Our song of this day is the Armenian entry of 2007.
For its second Eurovision participation, the Caucasus country sent one of its most renowned singers: Hayko had won the Best Artist award at the Armenian national music awards in 2003 and 2006 as well as many festivals. including the Big Apple festival in New York. Anytime you need is a dramatic ballad, in which Hayko pleads to his lover to always be there when she calls and dry her tears when she cries. The last part of the song was performed in Armenian with similar lyrics. Hayko performed the song standing center stage in front of a big artificial tree with white ribbons attached to it that fluttered in the wind(machine). At the end of the performance Hayko touches his heart and his shirt starts to get soaked in artificial blood. The televoters liked the dramatic performance and Hayko came 8th.
Here is the performance:
