Romania 2017 - Florin Chilian - Colț De Lup

How kind Romanian telly are for treating us to a little bag of audition delights every night this evening. We'd never ordinarily had the chance to witness such gems as this.

Now there is many the lost soul in the Eurovision community who bemoan the lack of some kind of perceived quality in this competition. Well if it's pure quality you want you really won't get much better than this little marvel. It's a gorgeous little slice of complicated chamber folk, such by a guy with a deeply characterful voice, and absolutely beautifully orchestrated throughout.

As a fine, complex, thoughtful composition this will rarely be bettered this season. What's that? You don't like it? Oh I see, when you say "quality" you mean "lady in a frock belting one out" or "bloke in a waistcoat and a hat waving his hand about in front of an unplugged guitar", don't you.

There's really no pleasing some people!

  1. Why does this remind me of something that would be right at home in Sanremo or FiK?

    In the land of Paula and Ovi, this hasn't got a chance...
