Her shock exit in the second semi-final couldn’t cool Mei Finegold’s heat. Instead, our favorite Israeli rocker girl has been on fire, releasing a stream of songs for both Tel Aviv Pride and with her band, Limouzina Express. They recently covered an Israeli hit from the 80’s called Seder Yom (Daily Routine). Originally sung by the late Yossi Elephant, this song completely fits Mei’s style. Take a look below.

With stunning vocals by Mei and Yuval Banay, the rock song is full of energy. The verses are a tribute to The White Stripes, while on the other hand, the choruses are in the style of Pink Floyd. It’s old-school, yes, but the instruments and the gravelly-sung notes reach out to people of all ages. Mei isn’t afraid to belt it out, nor show some moves onstage while having fun with her fellow musicians, and we like that. Music isn’t just a business, its a pastime and hobby to have fun with (especially with friends), and Mei shows us that. Ani ohev!

“Seder Yom”

K’sheni yoshevet m’sederet khayim
Az hakhol nirah k’mo khalom
Mizdaha im atzmi
Al noseh dim’yoni arokh

Lifamim k’she’omrim
Eize tzeva m’dahim
Tiposi metkarev mehasof
Mitganevet mistovevet
Mityoshevet lkhivum nakhon

Seder yom
K’mo sha’on
Lo nishar li makom
B’shvilkha
Lison bamekomekh
Rak im k’dai lakh

Rak yoshevet l’shniya
Hag’yonit mishn’ya
Mitargenet v’ozel havalon

Lo zokher bediyukh
Stam d’muyut
Ma koreh pit’om

Minaseh l’hargish
Mishtadelet l’hadgish
Zeh metish v’over li hayom

Shuv nizkeret rak ad khan
B’lagan l’kivon nakhon

Seder yom
K’mo sha’on
Lo nishar li makom
B’shvilkha
Lison bamekomekh
Lo nishar li makom
B’shvilkha
Lison bamekomekh

English Translation

When I sit down and try to fix my life
Everything seems like a dream
Identify with myself
About a long imaginary topic

Sometimes when you say
What an amazing color
Typical, getting closer from the end
Sneaking, turning around
Sitting in the right direction

A daily routine
Like a clock
I have no place left
For you
To sleep instead of you
Only if it’s worth for you

Sitting only for a second
Make sense but weird
Getting ready and the balloon is exploding

I don’t really remember
Just characters
What’s suddenly happening

Trying to feel
Trying to emphasize
It’s stressful and the day is over for me

Again he remembered only up here
A mess in the right direction

A daily routine
Like a clock
I don’t have a place left
For you
To sleep instead of you
I don’t have a place left
For you
To sleep instead of you

I like it a lot!
BTW the guy singing with her looks like Nikolaj Koppel, this year’s host.

It feels like for me, her placing in the second semi finals don’t matter anymore as she gets more publicity and fame as time goes by. And compared to some other performers who qualified, Mei got all her surprising success in some parts of Europe and of course in her home country.
