Bogi is going hard at A Dal this year, and she really wants it to be a case of “third time’s a charm”. Today, more than a month after the official audio release of her entry “World of Violence”, she has released the video — just in time to spark interest ahead of Hungary’s Eurovision selection.

Filmed in superchic black and white, the video shows Bogi wandering the streets of Budapest. Ditching the flashy look of “We All”, Bogi has transformed from young teenager to mature woman. The monochrome styling captures the Old World, orchestral feel of the song. Most importantly, it channels the spirit of the song, which is all about ridding the world of violence. Colour simply wouldn’t work with these lyrics:

I can’t see the lights and stars
I can’t see the sun go down
I can’t see a brighter future
Life gets harder
In a world of violence

Bogi is currently a top contender in our poll, “Who should win A Dal 2015?”. This video is further proof “World of Violence” is worthy of the hype.

World of Violence Lyrics — Bogi

Everything I see is empty streets
Walking on my way on broken dreams
Everytime I hear you whisper
Please take this pain away

Everybody let’s help those in need
You can be in those shoes by the way
Every now and then you feel that
Got nothing else to say

Please take this pain away

Got nothing else to say

I can’t see the lights and stars
I can’t see the sun go down
I can’t see a brighter future
Life gets harder
In a world of violence

I just want the sun to rise
I don’t wanna hear more lies
I don’t wanna sit in silence
Need some guidence
In a world of violence

Have you ever heard a baby’s cry
Everything once nice is going dry
Gotta try to make it better
Don’t let your world turn grey

There are times when life’s impossible
Wanna make your scars invisible
Tell me if this is forever
This record’s on replay

Don’t let our world turn grey

This record’s on replay

I can’t see the lights and stars
I can’t see the sun go down
I can’t see a brighter future
Life gets harder
In a world of violence

I just want the sun to rise
I don’t wanna hear more lies
I don’t wanna sit in silence
Need some guidence
In a world of violence

I can’t see the lights and stars
I can’t see the sun go down
I can’t see a brighter future
Life gets harder
In a world of violence

I just want the sun to rise
I don’t wanna hear more lies
I don’t wanna sit in silence
Need some guidence
In a world of violence

She looks like Natasha Hamilton in the screengrab.

Not a big fan of this one… but I wasn’t (and still aren’t) a big fan of Running from last year, so it wouldn’t surprise me if Hungary selects it.

I don’t know what the big hype about Bogi is, I thought We All was also quite boring. On the other hand, I do accept I like World of Violence a lot more than We All, at the very least!

I don’t think that It’s a winning song and the girl’s voice doesn’t tell me anything, It doesn’t touch me at all. If she wins A Dal… Well, I don’t think it will win ESC, not enough mass appeal. Between Bogi and Boggie, I choose Boggie all the way.

a gloomy and somber theme will drive voters away for sure. While there’s no argument that the video captures the spirit of the song, the big turn-off is the helplessness and the emptiness which overshadow any hope or optimism. The composition is confined to very familiar and repetitive replicas and when I listen to it I get some Sandra Ladosi flashbacks from 2004. While there’s no doubt that countries like Hungary, The Netherlands and Malta seem to be on a roll in the past 2-3 years especially when Eurovision insiders constantly root for their success, a second song in a… Read more »

Not an amazing song, but still very good. She’s probably Hungary’s best chance this year.

This song can definitely win Eurovision, and I’m 90% it’ll end up winning A Dal.

If she wins A Dal, we will have ESC 2016 in Hungary.
