Discuss: Nodi & Sophie’s Waterfall is Wet in a Really Bad Way

Thomas G:son, the man behind Loreen’s “Euphoria”, knows how to write a dance track. I’m less convinced by his efforts with “Waterfall”, the ballad Nodi & Sophie will sing on behalf of Georgia at ESC 2013.

I don’t mind the sugary sweet sentiment. Ballads are meant to be cheesy and include lines like “you’re my heartbeat” and “I’m breathing because of you”. Totally get that. And it’s obvious that Nodi & Sophie can sing. But this ballad lacks the wow factor of “Shine”, Georgia’s ballad from 2010. I have no doubt Georgia will pull out some AMAZING STAGING—they always do. But I will not be looping this on my iPod any time soon.

What do you think of the song?

There’s no me without you
Don’t know what I would do
You’re my heartbeat
I’m breathing because of you

There’s no world without us
Dreams would turn into dust
You’re the reason, the reason I make it through

Feels like I’m flying
Like if I had wings
Like I am sailing on a sea of dreams
Your love is pouring down on me like a
Waterfall

In a moment like this
I’m in a state of peace
I’m swept away
I look into an open sky

Feels like I’m flying
Like if I had wings
Like I am sailing on a sea of dreams
Your love is pouring down on me like a
Waterfall

Standing in the waterfall

Waterfall….
Waterfall….

Feels like I’m flying
Like if I had wings
Like I am sailing on a sea of dreams
Your love is pouring down on me like a
Waterfall
