Estonia’s Birgit

Today, Estonia’s Birgit Õigemeel released her first solo single after Eurovision, a song by the name of “Nii täiuslik see,” or “This is so perfect.”

Now, I know what y’all are thinking. The LAST thing I need to listen to in this heat is another slow, sleepy ballad by Birgit. But au contraire, dear readers!

Birgit’s new single is refreshingly upbeat and makes for easy listening. It’s happy, sweet and, perhaps most importantly, won’t lull you to sleep. Sure it might not be anything revolutionary, but the lyrics are cute: “It’s so perfect being here together with you, since we don’t need anything else.” Okay. Maybe it’s ruul ruul cheesy, but I’d rather listen to upbeat cheese than not!

Now, if that’s way too much Estonian dairy for y’all, you can also check out Birgit’s other summer single with the electric violin group Violina, “Sea of Life.” It’s quite…different than “Et uus saaks alguse” or “Nii täiuslik see.” A nice electronic violin staccato beat pumps through the song, and it’s catchy enough, but…I’m not sure what is up with demonic mermaid Birgit in the video. Ruul creepy, y’all!

What do you think of Birgit’s new songs? Would either song have been a better choice for ESC? Let us know in the comments box below!

The makeup artist and editor from Sea of Life should definitely get a promotion.

Sea of life is awsome. Ok nothing so special but it totally brings a smile to my face and a groove to my kitchen as I throw some food together. Hell… Three listens in a row.

The Eurovision entry this year kind of passed me by and her other single is a bit dated and dull but has a summer feel so ok. Half a listen then I got board.

Hate to say it also… But… It bein in English immidoatly makes me sing along… Just to support my argument from the privious thread. X

I think Birgit is a quality singer,but for girls with high notes ,soprano is not easy to find a good songs.Serbia’s Nevena started well,although she can sing much difficult songs same as Birgit.
