  1. It’s an ok song, my favourite from the 6 chosen so far (but that’s not saying anything – the remaining 5 are really subpar). However the fact that the “chorus” solely consists of backing vocals severely limits it and is a serious anticlimax. There was no way Xuso Jones could have won this, he was downright creepy.

  2. It’s ok. I can’t think of any better way to describe this song. Nice vocals and okish composition that should have dared a bit more. Not so sure this will do well though. A (6/12) for now. Good luck!

  3. Avarage as hell! Goodluck Spain!

  4. It’s all right, nth that special, but I quite like it..I won’t vote it in ESC probably, and it needs perfect live singing to make a sense in Stockholm..we will see.
    For now it’s my number 2 after Albania, but considering Albania will translate into English and revamp, I don’t have high hopes.. :(

  5. oh dear…nothing special…seems Spain is not bothering anymore like the UK..although UK haven’t done our songs yet but im not hopeful!.
