Soluna Samay Will Represent Denmark at Eurovision 2012 with “Should’ve Known Better”

Soluna Samay has won Dansk Melodi Grand Prix 2012. She’ll be singing “Should’ve Known Better” in Baku. You can watch the video and read the lyrics below.

Wiwi is kind of upset. Soluna is pretty and all—we loved her Britney Spears Circus ringmaster top. But her song is so dull. It’s too generic and doesn’t showcase her vocals. We’re fairly certainly Denmark won’t be making the Top 5 for a third consecutive year. Sad. We also worry that Soluna might turn into Denmark’s Anna Bergendahl (the quirky blond who, in 2010, became the first and only Swedish Eurovision contest ever eliminated in the semi-finals). We sometimes wonder if she chose the right career path for herself.

The Danes should have known better and gone with Jesper Norshtedt, who finished second with his electro-ballad “Take Our Hearts.” Chris Brons and Patrick Isaksson placed third with “Venter.”

Listen to Soluna’s song:

 

Read the lyrics:

Should’ve known better

Now I miss you, like Sahara miss the rain
Changing like the weather
Maybe it’s true
Maybe you’re not gonna change

I feel like you have two homes
Yet I feel you are homeless
Where we live I feel like a stranger,
When you home I feel even stranger

I live in no man’s land
With no way home like you don’t understand
Cuz you so here, you so there, not really anywhere…
She said…

Should’ve known better
Now I miss you, like Sahara miss the rain
Changing like the weather
Maybe it’s true
Maybe you’re not gonna change

Feels like I’m always
Living out of my suitcase
What about all the years in between
Just trying to find my place

I live in no man’s land
With no way home like you don’t understand
Cuz you so here, you so there not really anywhere… She said…

We could’ve written words on a mountain high
Reminding ourselves to keep climbing, right
Sometimes we have to lose
A part of us to find the truth

Nothing more beautiful than the way
You used to breathe me into your lungs and soul
Sometimes we have to say
I’m sorry I cant stay

Should’ve known better
Now I miss you, like Sahara miss the rain
Changing like the weather
Maybe it’s true
Maybe it’s true

Oooh… Should’ve known better
Now I miss you, like Sahara miss the rain
Changing like the weather
Maybe it’s true
Maybe we’re not gonna change

Should’ve known better
Should’ve known better

And for what it’s worth, here is second place finisher Jesper. Sigh. We were routing for you!
