Overthinking Eurovision 2013: Ireland and Montenegro

Let Montenegro blow your mind.

Look. I know you’re all horribly disappointed that Ireland didn’t send Jedward back to Eurovision for a third year in a row and that they won’t be receiving the full OTI treatment. But take that frown and turn it upside down; Ireland’s song still manages to be entertaining, and Montenegro’s song manages to be…totally insane.

    I didn’t comment on this in the video, but lord have mercy, there is a ton of dub-step influence in this year’s batch of songs. The clips of “Only Love Survive” that I chose for the video don’t reflect, so be sure to watch the whole thing to see how Ryan Dolan DROPS THE BASS.

    Hell, even the Romanian contratenor DROPPED THE BASS.

    It’s interesting that Montenegro’s escapism is based on the intensity of partying – when I visited there, their cultural touchstones seem to be built on a more relaxation, casual, laidback lifestyle, so drinking is more about chilling out than partying in the Montenegrin culture, at least, as was.

    Also, their relationship to the EU is weird since they do already have the Euro. I do wonder how the Eurozone crisis has affected their economy without having the EU there to influence it.

    So, I’ve hit the point where I no longer have the energy to listen to the full songs and judge them. I think I’ll just sit back and let the contest weed out some countries before I chime in again. Still loving the videos though. :)
