In early November, Estonian broadcaster ERR kicked off Eesti Laul — Estonia’s National Selection for the Eurovision Song Contest and promised it would be huge. The first three songs were revealed quickly and we have been playing them on repeat since they dropped. Now we know five more songs that will fight for the Estonian ticket to Stockholm. Is there a winner among these acts?

Kea — Lonely Boy

The first act up on the list is a track with an acoustic pop sound. Kea reaches out to her boy, asking him not to be lonely and to change so they can stay together. Kea is an independent girl, however, and comes to her own conclusion about the relationship, closing, “I just hope you have the chance to figure it out.” BAM. Do you like it or think she’ll be lonely at the bottom of the scoreboard?

Anett Kulbin — Strong

Next up is a heartbreaking ballad, which tells a break-up story, but also, if you listen to the chorus separately, carries an inspiring message that you are strong and can make it through heartbreak. Are you moved?

Indrek Ventmann — Hispaania Tudruk

Kuuulaaa…hooks us Eurovision lovers from the first word, and leaves us dreaming of Ott Lepland performing in Azerbaijan. After that, though, Indrek leads us away from Baku and into the tropics. Can you hear the sea? That is exactly where “Hispaania Tudruk” takes us: sea, sand and sunny sounds. Does it take you to paradise though?

Pohja-Tallinn ft. Jaagup Kreem — Eiolemulolla

This song shakes things up with a rocky sound and elements of rap mixed in for good measure. It is totally out of step with what we were expecting, but rock definitely has its appeal and fun songs shine out among more serious entries. Are you feeling it?

Meisterjaan — Parmupillihullus

Now we’re going out of this world and into a science fiction fantasy. The song has a crazy robotic sound, and at some point those robots seem to short circuit. The song carries on so hopefully they’re fine! Do you think Meisterjaan will go intergalactic with this track?

The first semi-final of Eesti Laul will take place on 13 February 2016 and be followed by the second on 20 February 2016. Five songs will advance from each semi-final to the final and then one song will be sent to Stockholm.

Would you like to see any of these artists fly the Estonian flag in Stockholm? Let us know in the comments box below!

the Stig Rästa and superstar Jüri Pootsmann songs´Play accoustic version was revealed too. depending on the final version, quite strong, but not as instantly catchy as Goodbye to Yesterday (which, I admit, is hard to beat for years to come, it raised the bar too high on catchy and addicting scale). So I have no idea what Play will be like not-accoustic. Is it like funk, or dance music? I feel like it would win greatly from faster beat our jury is really dumb, they say they go for the instantenuous hits yet they always pick some druggy-sounding bs. I… Read more »

I don t like so much Laura song Supersonic. For me she had better song in Eurolaul first Sunflowers, than Destiny, Moonwalk.
I wait another Sven Lohmus song for Grete Paia , Untold story.

Warning: Long post ahead, ranking them all so far and including comments on the first three from: http://wiwibloggs.com/2015/11/10/estonia-first-songs-eesti-laul-2016-revealed/106744/ Anett Kulbin – Strong. Great vocal, the song isn’t bad either. It kind of feels like a ‘too good for Eurovision’ song though – you know what I mean. Would still be welcome in Stockholm, and I’ll be really interested to see how it goes live. Could be washed out by a big stage, but could be magnificent. Zebra Island – How Many Times. I know it’s kinda trashy and would bomb at Eurovision, and I know the issues with the vocalist… Read more »

Laura’s song “Supersonic” was released yesterday as well. The three best songs so far are probably Laura “Supersonic”, Kéa “Lonely Boy” and Anett Kulbin “Strong”. The others are not so good, “Eiolemulolla” by Põhja-Tallinn and “Patience” by I wear* Experience are kinda okay/good but I wouldn’t be too sure if they will pass to the final.
