Unfortunately, none of the songs seam like Top 10 candidates to me 🙁
I will say that Say Yay is probably the catchiest and Now least generic one.

If spanish people don´t choose Barei or Electric Nana, top 5 last positions.
They need to impress Europe and the world.
Don´t be stupid another year people, and think with the brain 😉

we don’t need another Sweden in the contest, I’m not saying that because I think they are bad, but because that would drag negative voting to Spain. Srsly, you have Barei, Maria Isabel and Electric Nana, WHY ON EARTH WOULD YOU SEND XUXO JONES? pls No, this isn’t original and we’ve heard this before, various times and from sweden.

@Barei Jones
Spanish is my native language, I’m told I’m quite good at it. I didn’t mean to offend you, I have plenty of spanish friends and aquaintances and they often poke fun at their lack of pronounciation.

Of all of these, only Maria Isabel is the suitable candidate for Stockholm because if it’s Barei, Maverick, or Salvador Beltran, then Spain will join Netherlands, Armenia, and San Marino as the WEAKLNGS. So, sending Maria Isabel to Stockholm will join Kaliopi, Sergej Lazarev, and BIH as the top dogs.

1. Maria Isabel – La Vida Solo es Una – One of the best things I’ve ever heard from Spain… It’s fresh, it’s Spanish and it’s amazing… The best choice, definitely. 2. Xuso Jones – Victorious – Sounds good, but it’s good for Melodifestivalen, not for Spain… 3. Salvador Beltrán – Días de Alegría – Sounds very boring from the begunnung, but the second half of the song is very catchy…. Perfect summer song… 4. Barei – Say Yay – i seriously dont understand why’s everybody so obsessed with this song. Im not saying it’s bad, but it’s not that… Read more »

I couldn’t be bothered with listening to any of them all the way through, which is not a good sign, but Barei’s song is definitely the most catchy one.

BTW has Salvador Beltran enlisted David Bisbal for the chorus?

I like most of these songs, TVE did a good job. My top: 1) Dias de Alegría – this song really makes me happy and inmediately transports me to a sunny spanish beach. 2) La vida sólo es una – maybe it’s because I’ve been listening to it quite a bit, but I still really like it and think it would do well in esc, it’s just matter of seeing how she pulls it off live. 3) Say Yay – sounds kind of like a mess, specially those backing vocals in spanish that make no sense at all, and you… Read more »

1) ”La Vida Solo Es Una” María Isabel My #1 most favorite.Hopefully Maria Isabel after her victory back in 2004 in the Junior edition will represent Espana in the ”adult” Eurovision this time. 2) ”Días De Alegría” Salvador Beltrán Really good song.I like its lively rhythm & energy. 3) ”Un Mundo Más Feliz” Maverick Likable song.It has a nice flow & cool vibes. 4) ”Victorious” Xuso Jones Nice song.And I do not think that its really a copycat of ”Glorious” by Cascada. 5) ”Say Yay” Barei Descent song but i really dunno about its questionable possible outcome in Stockholm if… Read more »

I’ll be Rooting for Maria Isabel, since I think is the only one from the ones I do like who I think might have a chance, but my favourite is actually Salvador.

All these songs are generic in their own right, but I fail to hear anything particularly good in Say Yay, it beats me why people is liking it that much.

-I think that Barei has the best song and voice. By far.
-Maria Isabel has a hit for the euroclub!!! ????
-Electric Nana could be interesting but she should improve her song
-Xuso Jones sounds as a discarded song from the Melodifestivalen.
Salva and Maverick…. no comments

So… No chorizo this year!!

There are only two, maybe three songs that I can remember, “Say Yay” and “La vida solo es una”, “Victorious” I can think about once in a while, but Barei and Maria I think could be serious contenders for the top 10 spots. Otherwise, Maverick, Salvador and sorry to say E Nana are just not good enough for me, they get worse with every listen.

I can say without a doubt it won’t be Madrid 2017. Another weak line up if I’m to be honest, especially “Victorious”. Anyone in their right mind wouldn’t copy Germany’s predicted flop in 2013.

I always question your taste fellow wiwireaders and the fact that most of u like say yay hey hey convince me more that it would never win. Its between xuso jones and maria. Barei has the same chances to win as amarrylis in belgium (cause its toooooooooxiccccc yeaahhhhhh)

Not going to be Spain’s year. 1. Barei – Say Yay! – I don’t love love love it, and it won’t be winning Eurovision, but it is enjoyable and moves along more than the rest. 2. I was very, very excited by the snippet, and the final song is alright, but it doesn’t really flow, just goes over itself. It’s not what Europe and the world wants to hear, but I would still happily get my hips moving at a bbq if it came on. 3. Maria Isabel – La vida solo es una – This is a 20-26th inoffensive… Read more »

Even though I think Spain is one of those countries that really should sing in their beutiful language, Barei has definitely the best entry out of these and she should win. Other songs are at most average.

To the people saying Barei can’t pull the sing live, I suggest to heard this (as well as other lives she has) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=scEPwYGfsG8
My top: 1- Barei 2- Xuso 3- Electric Nana 4- Maria Isabel 5- Salva Beltran 6- Maverick
Also, I don’t know what you guys want… You say Spain has to send something from here, but then nobody vote for us. And when we send something more spanish you say it’s dated or that Spain needs to go international…OK…

One of the few times where no songs in a NF are terrible. All have a shot of doing well for Spain. For me it’s either Xuso or Barei but I don’t mind if any of them go to Stockholm

This is a really close one. 1: Barei – Say Yay!: Amazing entry and this should go to Stockholm – the only problem is that it’s full English except that Spanish Backing vocal part 2: Maria Isabel – La Vida Solo Es Una – I enjoy this alot and have found myself singing this alot. I think Spain will choose this or Xuso. 3: Xuso Jones – Victorious – Its better than the snippet but it would get the Cascada result IMO which is a shame because I like this. 4: Electric Nana – Now – I do like this… Read more »

Barei is the best of the English language bunch. Electric Nana’s song is just weird and Xuso’s is a remake of Glorious (and I dislike both). I’m surprisingly pleased with Salvador Beltran as well.

I agree with William and Deban that Maria Isabel never really delivers in her song.

Han

I think the one that can do better in Eurovision is Xuso Jones, does it sound similar to other songs? YES, will the people still vote for it? OF COURSE YES. Barei’s song is just not good enough, sorry. Plus, Xuso is the most known among them all and has a solid fanbase, and everyone should be sure that he’s gonna win at least the public vote. Xuso is winning this y’all!

I seriously don’t get why Barei is the favorite here…
“Victorious” is probably the best song. However I want more nations to sing in their native languages (Spain especially, since I just can’t help loving Spanish songs).

1. Victorious
2. La vida sólo es una
3. Días de alegría / Un mundo más feliz

5. Barei
6. Electric Nana

Considering how weak the Nordic countries are this year (excluding Sweden because we haven’t heard th snippets yet), “Victorious” would work with the Globe crowd.

Personally, it’s between Xuxo and Maria Isabel. Barei’s song is good but I felt the song is a little incomplete. It’s like I was waiting for a climax but didn’t happen.

I prefer ” la vida solo es una”. very catchy song, can be better with a good staging.
xuxo jones’ song is too swedish , a mix of eric saade song with cascada and euphoria: I’m a bit disappointed it’s not original at all!
barei: she shouts all the time.too much for my ears.
Electric nana : I like it but for eurovision I don’t know.
maverick: too weak
salvador beltran : a good song BUt for the spanish market Not international.

Electric Nana: sounds like she’s saying “can I lick you now” Uh, no.
Xuso Jones: sounds and feels like a Melodifestavelen entry…have heard it all before. Next!
Barei: better than the last two…best of the English songs.
Maverick and Salvador Beltran: forgettable, typical Latin pop.
Maria Isabel: lively, danceable, radio friendly. Love it. My numero uno. The favourite as far as I can see.

Maria Isabel isn’t stupid or egoncentrist Flopoto… YOU are stupid ok?? For me the best options are Maria Isabel, Maverick or Salvador Beltran. “La vida solo es una” THE BEST =)
