And now it’s time for Romania… and I’m ready for everyone to comment how tasteFUL I am 🥰. Okay, so this was like my 2nd of SN. I loved “Alcohol You” and it’s clearly Roxen’s style, this WAS in my top ten. You’ll realise I’m using a lot of past tense words. Why? Because Romania followed the footsteps of Albania, Czech Republic and (to a certain extent) Serbia and did an unnecessary revamp. This is by far the worst revamp of the year (aside from the first Czech revamp). The ending of this song now is just… no. I actually have never listened to the full revamped version fully more than once, because the revamp just annoys me ngl 😳. The lyrics are smart, although I do wonder whether a general ESC audience would grasp what it meant in the first listen (it took me a while to figure out alcohol you = I’ll call you, but maybe I’m dumb). Roxen has a great voice, and the start of the song is excellent. For me, this is a prime example of how to ruin a great song sadly. It would’ve qualified in May, but this wouldn’t have won ESC if it was still going ahead imo. At least we have her in 2021, hopefully I like her song better next year.
What are your thoughts on Alcohol You?
