Discuss: Guy Sebastian could win with “Tonight Again”

Guy Sebastian released his Eurovision song “Tonight Again”, a funky, sexy, upbeat soul number, that seems deliberately calculated to stand out against all the dramatic ballads this year. But it’s more than just an upbeat song – could “Tonight Again” score Australia its first ever Eurovision win?

Guy Sebastian’s rich soul vocals combine with spirited backing singers and a brass trio (two more than Epic Sax Guy!). It a brings fresh and energetic sound. And as Guy sings, “This is one tough act to follow.”

The song encourages the listener to “do what you what” and to “forget tomorrow – we can do tonight again”. It’s a message that will resonate with Eurovision fans who wouldn’t mind experiencing the ESC final again.

Is this a message that could also win over the European voting public? Is Australia set to host its first Eurovision in 2016?

Guy Sebastian – Tonight Again lyrics (Australia)

Oh, everyone’s got their problems
There’s always something on your mind
Oh, but tonight we ain’t gotta solve them
For tonight let’s leave them all behind

Oh, do what you what you what you want
Do what you what you what you want
Do what you what you what you want
Oh get on it, ooh get on it

I don’t want tomorrow
Oh baby, tonight’s so good

This is one tough act to follow
Oh baby, tonight’s so good
Forget tomorrow – we can do tonight again

Oh oh oh oh

Oh, some people might call you crazy
They say we only live for fun
They may be right but only maybe
I can guarantee what we got is what we want
(Ain’t that right?)

Do what you what you what you want
Do what you what you what you want
Do what you what you what you want
Oh get on it, ooh get on it

I don’t want tomorrow
Oh baby, tonight’s so good
Tonight’s so good
This is one tough act to follow
Oh baby, tonight’s so good
Forget tomorrow – we can do tonight again

Oh oh oh oh
We can do tonight again
Oh oh oh oh
Oh, we can do tonight
Oh oh oh oh
We can do tonight again
Oh oh oh

Do what you what you what you want
Do what you what you what you want
Do what you what you what you want
Oh, get on it, ooh get on it

I don’t want tomorrow
Oh baby, tonight’s so good
Tonight’s so good
This is one tough act to follow
