We knew Gor Sujyan’s “Lonely Planet” wasn’t going to be anything like Sirusho’s “Qele Qele” or Eva Rivas’s “Apricot Stone”. After all, he’s a rocker. But we were totally shocked when we realized he’d be singing a blandish rock ballad.

We can’t understand everything he’s saying, but on first listen the song seems to be about holding hands and protecting the Earth. “Lonely Planet who can save you?” he croons. “Who can stop it?” Stop what? Regardless, that storyline is, like, so overplayed at the moment. At least Alyoshia (Ukraine 2010) took on nuclear holocaust with pizzaz! The opening line about “whose the one who starts a war” initially made me think this was going to devolve into some kind of Armenia-Azerbaijan nonsense, but thankfully this isn’t explicitly political!

Anyway, what do you think of the song?

Who’s the one that starts a war?
Who’s dictating what is less and more?
Who can change the night and day?
Who’s the one with clever face?
That can tell us what is in the space?
Playing games that none can play.

Maybe someday we’ll break the wall.
Maybe the light will touch us all.

Chorus :

Lonely planet!
Who has done it?
Who can save you?
Who can stop it?

Who’s the one that has the right?
Treat us wrong and tell us what is right?
Bringing crowd against the squad…
Who has honesty to show?
Who can tell us “I don’t know” ?
Who’s the man and who’s the god?

Maybe someday we’ll break the wall.
Maybe the light will touch us all.

Chorus :

Lonely planet!
Who has done it?
Who can save you?
Who can stop it?
Lonely planet!
We have done it!
We can save you?

We can stop it.
We can stop it…
We can stop it….
We can stop it…
For the world.

Try as I might, I see no hope for this.
Gor Sujyan is clearly a fantastic vocalist, but this song is almost embarrassing.

After watching Armenia’s national final yesterday, well… That’s 1 and a half hours I’ll never see again!

I’m with Melissa on the ‘Boom Boom’ thing. That was definitely worse. It’s just a shame Armenia couldn’t return with a bang. And by bang, I mean with Sirusho and another amazing ethno-pop entry with tassels on.

You guys are kidding yourselves if you think Eurovision isn’t heavily politicized, with or without explicitly political lyrics. Melissa, I don’t think Armenia participates in the Eurovision Song Contest to gain the respect of fans of mediocre-to-awful pop music but I could be wrong. The song is bad, but how often are there good songs at Eurovision? I suppose Armenia could have hired Karen Kavaleryan or Sergio Galoyan (two Russia-based Armenians who have had some success with the type of pop that typical Eurovisionistas enjoy–Russia’s “Never Let You Go,” Ukraine’s “Shady Lady” and “Gravity”) to compose the song, but they… Read more »

His own song Toy Planet is much better. He managed to demonstrate his ability, the chorus has a nice melody, with a little bit optimizing it should have been a touching power ballad. Instead, he now will sing a piece of an Englishman. The tweets during his performance of Lonely Planet looked like PR. Always these manipulations…

They had 2 good rock songs they could have selected, and went for this. Shame.

I do kind of like it ,but if Armenia wants to start political shit again, then I will have even less respect for them than I already do.

Really, it can’t get any worse than “Boom Boom” from 2011

Armenia is usually one of my favorite countries at Eurovision….but this is just so boring. It’s a shame as he does have a good voice.
