National selection season drove a train through our lives — and our iTunes libraries. But now that we have a moment to breathe, we’re busy catching up on some of the amazing music from Eurovision artists of yesterday. And, more specifically, 2013. That’s because Margaret Berger — Norway’s singer back in Malmö — recently released the single “Apologize.” Baby, this is amazing and you have nothing to feel sorry for!

“Apologize” builds on Margaret’s work “Scream” and its dark electronic pop sound. It’s more ballad than club banger. Nevertheless, the trademark electronic beats remain in tact, coupled with some badass lyrics. “I know I’ve been a bad one, but I’m up f****d up for a reason. And I won’t apologize.”

Some might say she is playing it safe and taking few risks with her sound. But hey — if it ain’t broke, why fix it?

“Apologize” – Margaret Berger

The music video is at best an eccentric masterpiece and at worst a hot mess. It features Margaret and a little girl doing a variety of things in an abandoned house — from Margaret showing off her huge heels in a room decorated with apples to the little girl applying lipstick all over her face. Whether or not you appreciate the craziness, it encapsulates Margaret Berger — complete with a little girl feeding chocolate-covered pasta to a stuffed animal. That’s not all that happens in the bizarre video, making us feel as though we are in a trance.

Apologize lyrics – Margaret Berger

I’m drunk, bruised
I’m not OK and I haven’t been
And there’s no comfort to find in you
So much colder than you’ve ever been

November was never good to us
And the cold still bites my skin, lover
I never knew such emptiness, togetherness, restlessness

[Chorus]
I know I’ve been a bad one, but I’m f****d up for a reason.
I know I’ve been a bad one, but I’m f****d up for a reason.
And I won’t apologize.
I won’t apologize.

Sometimes silence is cooler than words
And you whip me with your nothingness
Again and again and again

I stab that dagger in your side
Force you to bleed out all your pride
Ask for mercy
For mercy

[Chorus]

All this broken glass
I think it’s time that I packed my bags
You can keep our couch
I think it’s time that I’m checking out
And this is shaky ground
And I don’t think I can stick around
I’m drunk, bruised
I’m not OK and I haven’t been

[Chorus]

And I won’t apologize
I won’t apologize

No, Andorra is not going to come back

I’m Spanish, and is just a joke. People are saying that Ylenia is going to represent Andorra XD.

Ylenia was a contestant of Celebrity Big Brother, Gandia Shore… And this summer she released a single “Pégate”. The song is just full of autotune, she can’t sing, but it was viral.
