At Eurovision 2013, Denmark’s Emmelie de Forest lived up to all the pre-contest hype and cruised to victory — sans shoes. Serving Mother Earth realness, she made “Only Teardrops” a memorable winner, and subsequently performed at the Eurovision Song Contest Greatest Hits show in London. Of course, plenty of other acts left an impression too with some killer choruses and memorable staging. From Farid Mammadov‘s man-in-a-box to Valentina Monetta‘s IKEA lamp to Zlata Ognevich‘s giant, a lot of these acts are lodged in our memory…for better or for worse.
And then there are the others. As we scroll through the list of Eurovision 2013 songs, some are a bit harder to conjure up. Armenia’s Dorians (“Lonely Planet”), Spain’s El Sueño de Morfeo (“Contigo hasta final”), Croatia’s Klapa s Mora (“Mizerja”) — try recalling all of their lyrics verbatim right now. Told you so.
wiwibloggers William and Deban wanted to test how many of the lyrics and melodies they could remember while standing in front of a camera, and you can see the results below. It ain’t always pretty, y’all!
