Our readers love a bit of Freaky Fortune and Riskykidd. They’re currently leading our search for Eurovision’s Next Top Male Model 2014 (polls close soon!) and they won our annual contest for Best Music Video.

But the Greeks know that a star can fall as quickly as it rises, so they’re keeping the momentum going with the release of a jazz version of  ‘Rise Up’. It’s still got a strong Greek ethnic vibe that will make you move. But the trumpets come through louder and stronger, giving this some major 1920s jazz edge. We approve.

 Do you prefer it to the original? Should the boys make a music video? Would this have finished higher than the original, which came 20th? Let us know below!

RISE UP LYRICS

I feel like rising up to the sky like I’m a dove
I’m in love with this feeling, am I down or am I up?
I can’t frown cause I’m in luck
I’ve got the crowd and that’s enough, I’m in love

Come on and rise up, rise up to the sky
Come on and rise up, get up and lose your mind
Loose up your feet and fly
Get off the ground tonight

Come on and rise up, jump out of what keeps you down
Get high and rise up, fly, get your feet of the ground
Come on and rise up, rise up, rise up, rise up
Rise, rise, rise, rise, r-r-r-r-rise

I told her rise up, come along and rise up
Music makes me wanna grab somebody rise up

Come on and rise up, dance till the final day
No need to hold back, drink like there’s no other way
Loose up your feet and fly
Get off the ground tonight

Come on and rise up, jump out of what keeps you down
Get high and rise up, fly, get your feet of the ground
Come on and rise up, rise up, rise up, rise up
Rise, rise, rise, rise, r-r-r-r-rise

I told her rise up, come along and rise up
Music makes me wanna grab somebody rise up
I told her rise up, come along and rise up
Music makes me wanna grab somebody rise up

I’m down to rise up, pour these shots like “why stop?”
I see you shaking, Imma have to smack that, my god
I’m blowing paper, balling, call me laker
Balling, call me later, balling, call me mason

Hey, our flow is oh so freaky
I roll with it, oh so cheeky
Oh, please girl, no, don’t tease me
Just got here, I’m not leaving

Come on and rise up, jump out of what keeps you down
Get high and rise up, fly, get your feet of the ground
Come on and rise up, rise up, rise up, rise up
Rise, rise, rise, rise, r-r-r-r-rise

Rise up
Come on and rise up

I told her rise up, come along and rise up
Music makes me wanna grab somebody rise up

Come on and rise up

The jazz version is OK but I find the original more exciting.
