After “Back Together”, “Outlaw In Em” and “The World Can Wait”, Waylon has presented his fourth potential Eurovision 2018 entry, “That’s How She Goes”

“That’s How She Goes” is the most uptempo entry of the four we’ve heard. Waylon said that the best way to describe the song is to play it. He sings: “I’m not saying she’s already gone / It’s surely feeling like she’s moving on”.

The song sounds contemporary and is definitely the least country-like song we’ve heard until now. “That’s How She Goes” sounds like a crossover between poprock and funk, which makes it very radio-friendly.

“That’s How She Goes” live performance

Meanwhile, many people believe that yesterday’s entry “The World Can Wait” is the entry. Promotionally, it would not be a surprise since both Waylon’s upcoming album and Dutch tour share the same name. The song is just over three minutes long and was received well by both fans and media. AD has already guessed that it’s indeed the entry and De Telegraaf has written that it is the best song to date.

It is believed that “The World Can Wait” was inspired by the burn-out of his girlfriend and YouTuber Bibi Breijman, who attended the performance in the De Wereld Draait Door studio last night. Waylon previously posted a picture with his girl on his Instagram in December with the quote “The world can wait my love”.

Waylon has only one song left to reveal after “That’s How She Goes” — a number called “Thanks But No Thanks”, which will be presented tomorrow night. Knowing his versatility, this song could be anything. On Friday evening Waylon will reveal which of the five songs will be his Eurovision entry.

Do you think that “That’s How She Goes” should be Waylon’s Eurovision 2018 entry? Or do you think that one of the other songs deserves the honour? Let us know in the comments below!

Still fixed on Outlaw in Em. If they send another song they clearly don’t know what they’re doing. Come on, listen to the people!

I feel like the chosen song will be the 1st one released or the last one. The others feel like filler album songs.

Ik ben een groot fan van Waylon. Ik heb al zijn cd’s. Ik heb zijn nieuwe cd alvast vooraf besteld.
Ik ben zeer teleurgesteld nu. Hij heeft gezegt dat hij alle liedjes zelf heeft geschreven.
Dit liedje bestond al in februari 2015.
Zeg dan eerlijk wie de schrijver is, of zeg dat je de rechten gekocht hebt. Niet jokken graag!
Foei!
Mijn favoriet is Outlaw in Em.
Hopenlijk wel zelf geschreven.

I am a big fan of Waylon, but now
I am very disappointed. He was saying that he wrote all the songs by himself.
This song was already existed in February 2015.
My favorite is Outlaw in Em.
Hopefully written by himself.

Maar dan gaat hij dus sowieso niet met dit liedje naar Lissabon, want hij is dus al eerder uitgekomen en dat is tegen de regels.

The world can wait was the worst of the lot……I didn’t like that one. The only one of the 4 I didn’t like. Well if he does choose that things are definitely gonna be looking up for San Marino.

the dutch media is absolutely full of it. Unless the 5th song ends up blowing the rest out of the water, outlaw in em NEEDS to be the eurovision song

For me and the vast majority of Dutch fans it is definitely Outlaw In Em. It is really the only song that has a chance of standing out in Lisbon. The media is trying to sell the narrative that the fans apparently want The World Can Wait, which isn’t true at all. All the polls and all the discussion boards, social media, etc. show massive support for Outlaw In Em, whereas The World Can Wait was actually poorly received. Given the enormous push for The World Can Wait in the media and newspapers supporting it so much, I have the… Read more »

This song from Michael Tenpenny is not on Spotify, so probably he never released it, from which you can conclude that Waylon bought the rights and he can go to the festival with this song, I think?

but still it was performed in full before September 2017, even if not by Waylon himself, could it be a problem? I know there have been similar cases this year, but it was only parts of the songs which were performed

This is what ESC saus: “The compositions (lyrics and music) must not have been commercially released before 1 September 2017. In case the composition has been made available to the public, for example, but not limited to, on online video platforms, social networks or (semi-) publicly accessible databanks, the Participating Broadcaster must inform the ESC Executive Supervisor, who shall have authority to evaluate whether the composition is eligible for participation in the Event”.

Yes, he probably bought the rights. But I think he shouldn’t go with this song because some people will still talk about plagiarism.

First of all, all are decent songs which is a good thing.
Honestly, I like all 4 songs so far.

I really like “That’s how she goes”.It sounds country and pop at the same time. It has potential. The bridge with the guitar is great.

My favourites so far:
1.That’s how she goes
2.Outlaw in Em
3.Back together
4.The world can wait

Roxy

I don’t think he will. It’ll be easy for Waylon to qualify from semi 2, because there aren’t many outstanding Songs or anything great to come. He wouldn’t have any Chance in the 1st semi tho…

Which Songs for example? I only like Hungary Denmark. In the 1st semi there are only promising countries like Austria, Belgium, Croatia, Israel, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Greece, Azerbaijan, Armenia, Bulgaria, Estonia…. In the 2nd semi however I don’t see as many good artists and Songs.

No need to get upset y’all. The second semi may be easier for the simple fact, that there are less contenders (18 instead of 19), but apart from that it’s hard to tell, which is more “promising”. I won’t list all the promising acts, that haven’t survived the semis so far, but toyed around with some duels (S1 vs. S2): ?? ALB vs. NLD ?? ?? AZE vs. RUS ?? ?? BEL vs. UKR ?? ?? BGR vs. SWE ?? ?? EST vs. HUN ?? ?? ISL vs. DNK ?? ?? ISR vs. SLN ?? ?? LTU vs. POL ??… Read more »

Of course you can have your opinion, but you say very often that semi 2 is weak, and you must be aware that this is a sure way to annoy 18 countries at once.

Waylon what are you doing to me?! This is so hard to call really. Another great track really. But I think I’m still going with No:3 as the one
1. The world can wait
2. Outlaw in em
3. That’s how she goes
4. Back together

Again the Dutch media has no clue what they are talking about. The more NL likes the song, the less reason to choose it we have no clue how Europeans vote. My personal choice would be That’s How She Goes
