Erika Selin – Break Me Up. Her song got the schlager AND the Irish feel. Catchy!

Erika with Break Me Up would be the best choice, but Nikki with Memories is nice too.

I really hope Molly wins. Great song, great voice. She would represent Ireland well! If not her, I hope it’s Nikki, although her song is way to similar to Amber’s ‘Warrior,’ so It would just end up being a screaming match. I don’t think Erika should represent Ireland, seeing as she has no connection to Ireland, and I don’t like the others.

Please Ireland, send Kat with Anybody Got A Shoulder. Finally a song with a haunting melody supported by interesting chords. Hooray! There’s too much shouting in the other songs. This could be a winner with the right staging.

I just listened to all 5 songs, and I must give it to Erika:

Alex Saint and the M.J.’s: “She’s So Fine”, 8.80 (5)

Erika Selin: “Break Me Up”, 9.44 (1)*
Molly Sterling: “Playing With Numbers”, 9.38 (2)
Nikki Kavanagh: “Memories”, 9.18 (3)

It should be Molly Sterling – Playing with Numbers. For me, it’s lyrically and musically the most interesting song of the selection. She has a similar style to Vanessa Carlton, but nonetheless it’s still a style of her own, and I’m really impressed with her. I love her vocal style too. Nikki’s song was good for sure, but I feel like there will be many other songs like it this year, and on top of that the autotune/pitch correction in the studio recording is really annoying. I hope she can actually sing it well live, because additionally it sounded like… Read more »

Memories is indeed a great song (albeit a bit repetitive), and everyone is raving about Nikki’s vocals. But may I remind everyone that we said the same thing of Kasey last year? Her vocals were great on record but VERY SHAKY live!!! It would be a risk sending this song to Austria if Nikki’s live vocals aren’t up to scratch….
I much prefer Break Me Up! Not as repetitive and much safer vocally.

It’s taken me a couple of days to get over my initial disappointment on hearing RTE’s choices for Eurosong. I don’t think there’s one single song that stands out over and above the rest as a clear winner or one that will resonate with an audience after one listen. Having said all that, here are my thoughts after a few listens… She’s So Fine – great beginning with a catchy chorus but it’s just ruined by the weak rapping style and lyrics. Anybody got a shoulder – this could be a dark horse. If staged properly it could be really… Read more »

Erika Selin – Break Me Up Anthemic, catchy and uptempo melody. It’s pop friendly chorus would appeal to the majority. While it’s abstract whistle-along hook over guitar strumming and Nordic drumming gives the song an ethnic and cultural mood all centred around a pop friendly beat. Stunning vocals, and a beautiful blonde Swedish front woman. The song is very reminiscent of Avicii”s ‘Wake Me Up’ and many of the work’s of Ke$ha. Again,like in previous years this song is only the best of a bad bunch selected by RTE. But ‘Break Me Up’ would be our best shot for a… Read more »

Best Song, not Loudest Voice. Playing With Numbers is MILES ahead of the other 4 rubbish ones, BUT don’t expect anyone else to notice.

My top 5 (In order.): 5. ALEX SAINT “She’s so fine”: Oh God. Remember “Love Trigger” by JEM in MelFest last year? That was good. “She’s so fine” is brutal. This will be 3rd place in Eurosong if they’re lucky. But their luck has run dry. 4. KAT MAHON “Anybody got a shoulder”: I can understand why this has made a sharp drop in the betting odds (1st place yesterday, 3rd today.), it is stuck in the 90s and I’m worried about how many years it has to it. It’s a nice song but I see this being “The Movie… Read more »

Just listened to all the songs in full (only heard the clips during yesterday’s radio show). I’m still torn between Molly and Nikki. The one who performs best live on Feb 27th gets my vote. 🙂

Best selection of songs in a long time!

Here are my scores and comments: She’s so fine: D-. No, no, no, no, no, no, no, please no, no, send Dustin the Turkey instead of this. Anybody Got a Shoulder: B It has a very pretty melody Break Me Up: B- Fun, but not very original. Strong Europop sound. Playing With Numbers: C It’s okay but it really lost my attention half way through. Memories: A- Seriously, Ireland needs to select this one if they want to make the final. It has a soaring, passionate-sounding melody, with impressive energy in the vocals and instrumentation. This could be a Top… Read more »

And Anybody Got A Shoulder. I think with a good staging and strong stage presence it might get lots of points at ESC.

Very disappointed there is nothing original here again from RTÉ. It’s a toss up between “Memories” and “Break me up” and my guess is that Nikki Kavanagh is RTÉ’s preferred choice, (sister of Niamh). “Break me up” comes straight out of that typical Irish mould that they can’t leave alone, (though made in Sweden.) “Memories” is at least modern and probably the best song they have come up with for a long time. The problem is this is going to be a very difficult song to sing live and the vocals will have to be spot on. Is this Ruth… Read more »

Well “memories” and “breake me up” are the best they have. But I don’t think Erika’s song is for the eurovision’s stage. At least Irish people cannot make a good show in Viena with it. If they choose the “Breake me up” probably they are gonna make an awkward performance just as they did last year. So I think they have to choose Nikki as it’s easier to organise the stage for a strong ballad than for a dance pop song.

only erika .. modern , international sounding music … if ireland send her it will be the second time in 10 years that I like irelands entry the other was 2011 jedward.. finally something my country will have decent in eurovision …
nikki’s song is good also but not catchy or modern enough

Really, I only see two of these songs representing us… Nikki or Erika will win for sure. If I’m honest, the best chance we have is by sending Erika. The song is very up-tempo and modern (a first for an Irish NF) and it will surely be popular among Nordic nations. I just feel that Nikki’s song will get lost at ESC. As for the other three, it’s a major disappointment. She’s So Fine is cringe worthy, Anybody Got A Shoulder sounds like a 10 year old wrote it (and yes, I’m fully aware McGetty wrote it) and Playing With… Read more »

Well, first of all, kudos to RTE! I’m pleasantly surprised.Usually, when RTE reveal the 5 Eurosong contestants there is always just 1 who stands out in the 5, usually the one which ends up going off to ESC, but this year, I can see 3 songs which could quite easily represent us, and probably get a decent result. Nikki Kavanagh’s song is actually superb, very current, a bit like Demi Lovato, Molly Sterling, is also very good, albeit it slow, if placed between two up-tempo songs at ESC and with decent staging could also achieve a very good result. and… Read more »

Erika’s song is missing something. It is still great and getting better with each listen!

I’m still in love with Nikki’s song and I think the public will vote for her!

I thought on first listen we had a bad selection, but I think it’s actually quite strong. Kat’s song is a snoozefest though

Memories is so Demi Lovato. I didn’t get goosebumps as when I heard Amber’s song. Nikki has a powerful voice but emotionless. I don’t like it.

Break Me Up is definitely catchier but nothing special either. I don’t know,I listened both songs several times but I can’t decide which one I prefer.

Not impressed. There’s no songs I like that much, but “Memories” and “Playing With Numbers” are ok. The others are horrible. I think Ireland may struggle to qualify, maybe even stay in the semi again.

Wow. Memories or Break me up are defiantly the winners. I prefer Erika because with Nikki it was a bit of a shoutfest. Alex is the ultimately the worst song, it is so bad yet not even laughable.

I think it has to be Memories. I think its fairly fantastic. I hope the live version is a powerfull.

My TOP 5

1.Kat Mahon “Anybody Got A Shoulder
2.Erika Selin “Break Me Up”
3.Nikki Kavanagh “Memories”
4.Alex Saint and the MJs “She’s So Fine”
5.Molly Sterling “Playing With Numbers”

Deven O'Kearney

I think that Memories should win Eurosong 2015 quite purely because:

1. While it is a ballad, it is a pop ballad in a similar way to Skyscraper by Demi Lovato/Sam Bailey.

2. It is well structured.

3. Nikki’s vocals are exceptionally powerful.

4. I can see some serious staging potential for Memories.

5. It’s radio friendly.

I don’t know whether to call this original in a Eurovision perspective. But to possibly have a mainstream pop ballad represent Ireland is a big leap forward IMO. If Nikki does represent us in Vienna, I’d be very happy. 😀 😀 😀
