We are getting close to Estonia’s national selection for Eurovision Eesti Laul 2016, which kicks off on February 13. In recent weeks the Wiwi Jury — our in-house panel of music unprofessionals — has been listening and reviewing all of the songs. Next up is Meisterjaan with his song “Parmupillihullus”. He is mixing a lot of electronic sounds, playing on harmonica and especially on our nervs. Find out about our reaction below!

MEISTERJAAN — “PARMUPILLIHULLUS”

“PARMUPILLIHULLUS” REVIEWS

Robyn: Prior to this point in my life, I was unaware that I needed an electronic excursion into the world of the jaw harp, but here it is, in all its urgency. I feel like this song exists outside the realm of traditional scores, but I will play along. Yes, Estonia. Yes.

Score: 7.5/10

Deban: The opening bars set the scene perfectly. This music is strictly for underwater sea mammals. I can’t see how humans today, or in the future, would connect with this babble. Make no mistake: this isn’t leftfield or experimental, it’s alienating!

Score: 1.5/10

Josh: Perhaps one of the most obscure entries into Eesti Laul 2016. It think it might be a little too left field for me. From the jaw harp, to the spoken word section in the middle of the song, to the incredibly monotonous vocal. I’m not sure whether or not I can take this seriously. I think I need a minute to collect my thoughts.

Score: 4/10

Angus: This sounds like the unfortunate love child of “Euro Neuro” and “Still In Love With You”. It is a mercy that the rest of the Estonian selection hasn’t taken those songs for inspiration.

Score: 1/10

Kristin: This is so deliciously quirky!! I smiled the whole time, while listening to this. OK, so its probably not gonna do some major damage in Eesti Laul, but golly, this is entertaining! The jawharp, the rythm and his obvious “Whatever, I’m just gonna do my thing here” attitude leaves a strange feeling of satisfaction. Weirdness alert? Hell yes! Need my support? Where do I sign??

Score: 8.5/10

Bernardo: Ha ha ha, is this a joke? “Euro Neuro” 2.0?! No way this is going to work. I don’t quite get it, also. Just no.

Score: 0.5/10

Antranig: This song makes me want to do a lot of things. Unfortunately most of those things involve grievous bodily harm because listening to this is much worse than torture. When he’s not singing, there is some appeal to the music but that is not enough to save this from being a complete disaster.

Score: 0/10

Sinan: Da hell was dat honey?! I mean really? How the jury accept this kind of songs to be on the national selection? Zero chance for any success, I’m sorry.

Score: 1/10

Zakaria: Each national final has a joke entry and I guess this is Estonia’s. I can hardly imagine someone actually writing, composing and singing a song like this. No voice, no rhythm and something tells me I don’t need to know what the lyrics are about. Come on Eesti Laul, you got us used to better than that!

Score: 0/10

Anthony: I braced myself for a shocker or two at Eesti Laul, and there it is. It’s like listening to an Estonian version of “Euro Neuro”, minus the rapping, the donkey in the video and chants of “Euro neuro!”. The tongue-twister of a song name won’t help, but at least it’ll be fun seeing commentators try to pronounce it.

Score: 1/10

Well, this one is completely silly….. Reminds me of Finalnd 2015…. The top of stupidity….. But… It’s incredibly catchy, infectious and after 4-5 listenings it simply stucks in your head and you cant get it out…. Tbh, im not fan of this kind of “fun”,… But im giving this sh.t 10/10 :DDDD Yeah, i need a doctor. 😀

Jaw harp give me life! Because, this song is taking it away from me. I’m always for joke entries, it’s what brings diversity (though i use that loosely) to the contest. Maybe this is why Phil of the Future came back to the 2000s, because this was what was waiting for him back in the future. I think this guy would benefit from learning how to drop it gutteral style from the older woman from Solju in UMK last year though.

Score: 1/10
