Latvia 2014 - Eirošmits – If I Could (Get Away)
The Latvian semi-final process has given us two night's of splendid bonkersness and the occasional really painful tune. This little aberration is convinced it's the former, but is sadly planted deeply into the latter category.
On the outset it's just an adequate-but-dull pub rock blues snoozer. But someone, somewhere thought it would be a good idea for them to all wear comedy face wigs and play air guitar. And just when you thought it couldn't get any more school play, well, I'll let you see for yourself.
You can imagine my dismay when it was drawn out of one of the six mittens nailed onto a pair of wooden horses faces (no seriously!) to earn a berth in the final. In fact, the only thing I really like them is the knowing cheekiness of their name (it's pronounced a bit like Aerosmith). Very poor.
