110 thoughts on “North Macedonia: Song Released!

  1. For the first time since 2018, I have major ranking issues.
    Back then I only liked 6 songs, and for the rest I even had trouble putting together my TOP 10.

    Then, 2019 and 2020 were for me great editions, with lot of good songs, and now again in 2021 I just can’t put together my ranking.
    I don’t like anything in particular.

    I did put songs into several categories, and within the category I sorted them alphabetically, so I guess for now this is my “ranking” :-)

    • I find this really unnecessary, the first version was better. The slow part they added at 2:22 is pretty weak and the ethnic sounds are more high pitched now ? sounding like chipmunks now, wtf ?

  2. ROFL, this sounds like a parody to me, but I guess it’s not intended to be ? I can’t take it seriously. 😆

  3. The Poloish entry “The Ride” :
    Another 80s inspired entry but both Denmark and Greece are better in semi 2. He seems like a weak performer too. Overall ok effort

  4. Meh I find Poland to be super generic and more dated than vintage. It’s kinda catchy but it’s tried to do an 80s look but the sound and aesthetic is way more early 2000s. At this point there’s so many uptempos, you need a unique selling point to distinguish yourself from the pack. This doesn’t have one except the potential diaspora vote.

  5. Poland. Goid tribute for the 80s but not great composition. The guy comes across as bit stiff. It is an OK effort.

  6. Poland: bold strategy to unveil this song after two really strong reveals in your same semi in Denmark and Greece. Not a complete turnoff, but unremarkable.

    Also it is rumored Stefania turned this down

  7. I have listened all the songs back to back.. My thoughts on some songs changed. I think it makes a big change when you hear them all at once🙂
