When Eurovision stars Sirusho and Sakis Rouvas released a trailer of their music video “See” a few weeks ago, they sent hearts racing and expectations soaring. We were expecting something amazing, but the result is decidedly more mixed.

First the good. This song has a thumping beat that’s tinged with Oriental flair. The extended bridge around 2:40 does not get old and will go down well at clubs from London to Athens and beyond. The video is sleek and sexy, and includes more than a few well choreographed dance sequences.

Sirusho and Sakis offer some proper eye candy. She works the dance floor and a bedazzled hat, he works a motorcycle and a leather jacket. They are fieeeeeerce.

Unfortunately the lyrics are laughable (read them below), and totally undermine the amazing production value and star power this duet has to offer. Here’s an example from Sakis: “You can be the biggest and strongest, the best — if you want.” Simplicity can mask meaning, but this is just shallow.

Sirusho doesn’t fare much better. “If you share the love – you live eternally. It’s love, it’s destiny, it’s immortality…” It’s a lot of words rammed together that don’t actually say that much! 

But it doesn’t matter. This beat is so good I’m happy to overlook the diction. I rather move to nonsense than not move at all.

SIRUSHO SAKIS ROUVAS SEE

See lyrics — Sakis Rouvas and Sirusho

There are moments in life when the pressure just won’t let you go.

There are times when you want to run away to another plateau.

Spread your winds, we are gonna fly away tonight

And tonight your fantasies will come to life.

I will take you to a place where we can be

As free as melody, just fly tonight with me.

See all the light of night, see all the beauty

And see how you are shining bright, see all the love.

If you see – you can be the One

To make the world go around and around.

See all the light of night, see all the beauty

And see how you are shining bright, see all the love.

If you see – you can be the One

To make the world go around and around.

You can be the biggest and strongest, the best – if you want.

You can light up the world and make it shine with a smile in your heart.

There is no limit to the things where we can be

So tonight you should be dancing here with me.

If you share the love – you live eternally.

It’s love, it’s destiny, it’s immortality…

See all the light of night, see all the beauty

And see how you are shining bright, see all the love.

If you see – you can be the One

To make the world go around and around.

See all the light of night, see all the beauty

And see how you are shining bright, see all the love.

If you see – you can be the One

To make the world go around and around.

This is amazing. Extremely infectious. Greece and Armenia should fight for this song to represent them in 2014.

Nah, joking. Still, this sounds modern, ethnic, effortless, and actually I like the lyrics, they flow so easily. And I actually like the lyrics and the overall theme.

Catchy song. Should have been released in the summer. Sirusho looks gorgeous as always. Anybody else thinks at some points she looks a lot like Elefteria Elefteriou (sorry for the misspelling)
