Iceland: Eyþór Ingi Gunnlaugsson Wins With “Ég á líf”

Eyþór Ingi Gunnlaugsson will represent Iceland at Eurovision 2013 with the song “Ég á líf”. That means “I have a life”.

Eyþór also has a seriously boring song. Perhaps it’s the language barrier, but I just don’t get it. I’m curious to know if he is wearing blonde hair extensions, and whether he deliberately tried to look like Thomas G:Son, the man behind “Euphoria” and other hits. Can I get a side by side?

I’m hoping that producers can spice this up and that the singer will re-think his choreography. He looks like he is taking a poo at the two-minute mark, and that ain’t cute. What do you think of his song?

English lyrics / translation:

I AM ALIVE

I set out upon that long journey
I walked on lost and restless
Didn’t think about anything until the following day.
I chose peace and tranquility.
I am alive, I am alive
I glide above every hardship
I am alive, I am alive
When the winds turn against me

I climb over the high mountains
I am alive, I am alive
I didn’t understand about love, which can move everything
Didn’t dare to embrace and to simply exist
I felt like I didn’t deserve to open up my mind
And let the bright love enter within

I am alive, I am alive
I glide above every hardship
I am alive, I am alive
When the winds turn against me
I climb over the high mountains
I’m alive, I’m alive because of you

And I believe it
Yes I do believe it

Perhaps the wondrous gates of heaven will open
Beautiful love will flood out
to embrace me alone
I’m alive, I’m alive
I glide over every difficulty
I am alive, I am alive

When the winds turn against me
I climb over the high mountains
I am alive, I am alive because of you
I am alive, I am alive, I am alive
