Just when we thought we had escaped the monotonous dance beats and tacky staging of yet another M I H A I masterpiece, he is back! Like a zombie, it seems neither M I H A I nor his music will die. This time he returns as the undead in the club-ready grinder “Zombie Love”.

Overall, the song is a pretty consistent listen. “Zombie Love” could be playing in a sexy corner of Purgatory — as the song never really gets going or goes anywhere. Peaks and valleys, y’all! Peaks and valleys!

It is a nondescript R&B/dance mashup — not quite appropriate for the bedroom nor the dance floor. It’s a well produced song, though — and as always, M I H A I’s vocals are on point.

It is the video that leaves us wanting more — or at least a higher budget. The video translates as a cheap knockoff of Michael Jackson’s “Thriller”. And would someone please fix his makeup!? Latex makeup can be very effective — except when it makes you resemble a long-forgotten bit of leftover flaky breakfast pastry instead of rotting zombie flesh.

Overall, the song is quintessentially M I H A I — vocally awesome and fantastically cheesy. One sure can’t say he isn’t having fun! If you are fan of M I H A I and his fabulous theatrics, then “Zombie Love” will not disappoint.

The artist formerly known as Mihai Traistariu represented Romania at Eurovision 2006 with the song “Tornero” eventually finishing fourth in the final. He attempted to represent Romania again in 2016 with “Paradisio” but lost the Romanian National Final to Anton Ovidiu and “Moment of Silence”.

M I H A I “Zombie Love”

“Zombie Love” – M I H A I (lyrics)

I have been lookin’ in
I really need to read your mind
I feel like a zombie
I’m screamin’ out inside

If you’re not made for me
Then I don’t wanna wake up
If I’m not made for you
Then I’ll wait for you in another life

Just tell me why the hell don’t you leave me, no, no
I’m not a toy, so, girl, don’t fight me
You stupid girl
Let me go!

Tick tock, tick tock
Do do do do do it on the clock
Feel my zombie love
Tick tock, tick tock
Do do do do do it on the block
Reach my tasty love
Zombie love

Let me get my ticket, baby
Let me get into your life
Before I feed your appetite
I can tell the way that you like.

If I close my eyes
Will you be there in my mind
Cause I miss your…
Yes, I miss your love
Hm, I really miss your love

Tick tock, tick tock
Do do do do do it on the clock
Feel my zombie love
Tick tock, tick tock
Do do do do do it on the block
Reach my tasty love
Zombie love

Babe, our love is compromised
You’re right
Tonight
I’ll die
If I’m not made for you
Then tell me baby what to do

Tick tock, tick tock
Do do do do do it on the clock
Feel my zombie love
Tick tock, tick tock
Do do do do do it on the block
Reach my tasty love
Zombie love

Is the guy in the beginning school, or why does he sing just in monosilabic words? The song is horrible and very old-fashioned. He withdraw considering he has no chance in Eurovision with his only good song in the past 10 years.
