Back in February, DoReDos won Moldova‘s national selection O melodie pentru Europa 2018 with their infectious, upbeat track “My Lucky Day”. In May, the trio will represent their country in Lisbon in the Second Semi-Final, and the pressure is on for DoReDos to outdo SunStroke Project, who finished third on the Grand Final scoreboard in Kyiv. As we wait for them to write Moldova’s story in 2018, let’s take a dive into the My Lucky Day lyrics!

DoReDos left Chisinau as the undisputed winners of O melodie pentru Europa: besides the jury vote, they also won the televote. Prior to that, “My Lucky Day” won both the Wiwi Jury and our Moldova 2018 poll. Part of the success of the song, besides the catchy melody written by the legendary songwriter and producer Philipp Kirkorov, comes down to the lyrics penned by John Ballard. The Swedish lyricist who wrote many a lyric for Ace Of Base was also behind the successes of Sergey Lazarev’s “You Are The Only One” and Demy’s “This Is Love”, so he isn’t new to the Eurovision Song Contest.

The uncomplicated My Lucky Day lyrics focus on the meeting of two souls and making “music” together. The metaphor for love continues with the rhythm that drives the pair wild and with the rolling and turning and burning which comes with that passion. It’s interesting to note that, while the syntagm “my lucky day” only features once in the lyrics — and not in the chorus — DoReDos decided to make it the title of the song, which is a novel approach.

“My Lucky Day” – DoReDos

My Lucky Day lyrics – DoReDos

You got secrets to unfold
You got stories never told
You’re holding information

Standing right in front of me
A hidden rhapsody
I walk into temptation

Something tells me we can make some music
The rhythm is drivin’ me wild
And something tells me we ain’t gonna lose it
Keep pushin’ way into the night

Number one, keep rollin’
Say you’re real, I’m hopin’
Do you feel the way I do

Bring it on, it’s magic
Are you real, fantastic
Say you feel the way I do

Number two, keep turnin’
Feel the heat, we’re burnin’
I’ll do anything for you

We can be forever
Number one, together
We can make a dream come true

Well I guess it’s up to you
Do you feel the way I do
When bodytalk is magic

So is this my lucky day
Will you stay or walk away
Right now you’re stoppin’ traffic

Something tells me we can make some music
The rhythm is drivin’ me wild
And something tells me we ain’t gonna loose it
Keep pushin’ way into the night

Number one, keep rollin’
Say you’re real, I’m hopin’
Do you feel the way I do

Bring it on, it’s magic
Are you real, fantastic
Say you feel the way I do

Number two, keep turnin’
Feel the heat, we’re burnin’
I’ll do anything for you

We can be forever
Number one, together
We can make a dream come true

I still like their other song called FunnyFolk (2016) than this one. My Lucky Day sounds like something I’ve already heard of before.

This song is so bad and so good at the same time that you have to LOVE it. Eurovision has became so much like current music in the last few years and this is like your old classic eurovision coming from nowhere and saying: “B*tch, i´m here!”. A song like this is needed in the final every year.

Oh, so the same person wrote lyrics for Demy and Sergey Lazarev – thath explains a lot. The lyrics don’t really make any sense and are super cheesy. I know that lyrics don’t often have to be super meaningful but this just sounds like random words mixed together. DoReDos are lucky that the song is quite catchy and that they have so fun and bubbly personalities because that can make you forget the lyrics for a while…

“Bodytalk” reminds me of Olivia Newton John’s song PHYSICAL. Now that song is some “bodytalk”!

This song grows on me. I just hate the staging where they bring out the rolling mirrors.

With any luck, the Lisbon staging will be completely different from the Chisinau staging.
