Another day, another track. On Wednesday evening, superstar singer-songwriter VICTORIA revealed “The Funeral Song” — the fifth song in the running to represent Bulgaria at Eurovision 2021. The track is taken from VICTORIA’s upcoming EP a little dramatic.

Listen: VICTORIA – “The Funeral Song” (Potential Eurovision 2021 song)

 

Though its title is rather macabre, “The Funeral Song” is about learning to love yourself and celebrate life. In the words of the legendary Ms. RuPaul Charles, if you can’t love yourself, how in the hell are you gonna love somebody else? “The Funeral Song” is the fourth track taken from VICTORIA’s upcoming EP a little dramatic. It’s also the penultimate song on the shortlist to represent Bulgaria at Eurovision 2021.

“What happens when we lose everything? What should we actually appreciate most while we are here on Earth?” VICTORIA asks. “With this song I want to tell people that they should take care and live in the moment. We all need to love and cherish ourselves.”

The track features the songwriting talents of Helena Larsson, Chris Samuels, Nellie Fors and Oliver Björkvall. The Sofia Philharmonic Orchestra assisted with the final arrangement of the song — just as they did with “Phantom Pain” and the upcoming “Growing Up Is Getting Old”.

Coming soon: VICTORIA’s final potential Eurovision song

On Thursday 18 February, VICTORIA will release “Growing Up Is Getting Old” — the final track on the Bulgarian Eurovision 2021 shortlist. The lyric video will premier at 19:00 CET on eurovision.icard.com and VICTORIA’s YouTube channel.

Soon, the Bulgarian Eurovision team will launch a special online platform to allow music fans around the world to leave comments and feedback about VICTORIA’s six potential songs for Rotterdam. This will be part of Bulgaria’s internal selection process and will ultimately inform the song decision for Eurovision 2021. Additionally, VICTORIA and her team will also look for feedback from focus groups of music, TV, radio and Eurovision experts to make their final decision.

What do you think of “The Funeral Song”? Should this be VICTORIA’s song for Eurovision 2021? Let us know what you think in the comments below.

For me “Dive Into Unknown” is the best song. I don ‘t like “The Funeral Song”. One more song to go

Except “Dive Into Unknown” is bad grammar. It may not bother a lot of people, but I find it very cringeworthy when non-native English speakers try to write profound , artsy songs in English; and then these end up being riddled with bad grammar. Just stick to writing songs in your own language. For the love of God, language diversity in Eurovision is beautiful, so give us songs in your own language, please! Or at least get someone proficient in your target language to write the song for you, or hire a proofreader to go over the grammar.

Hi! Native English speaker with an English degree here! If Victoria is referring to “unknown” as a specific NAMED place she is headed to, then the “the” before it isn’t needed.

Nobody says “I’m flying to THE Paris.” They say “I’m flying to Paris.” Because Paris is the name of the place.

Unknown might be the name of the place she’s diving into. Considering how the rest of her grammar is overall fine, I’m pretty sure she made that choice on purpose.

I’m in no way a native English speaker (Lithuanian, ho ho ho) so do correct me. Since the context you provide is scalding about poor grammar, I don’t think you did mean “bad grammar” as in “bad karma” which would relate to the fact that you hate the lyrics, meaning of the words, etc. Contrary, your comment is completely about how poorly it was written in terms of grammar. And so I believe you did a mistake while maliciously bad-wording the artist. Shall the song be (- is) “bad grammar” or shall it be “bad grammarly/have bad grammar”? And although… Read more »

Starting to think that maybe the six songs was a bit too ambitious. There’s not exactly a lot of musical diversity there. Whatever they pick, isn’t going to feel that unique or special if we’ve heard songs that are pretty similar to it already.

Yeah I don’t understand that often used argument either. Perhaps for them, happy music will cheer them up. But it doesn’t apply to everyone ; different personality types handle sadness and grieve differently. I wish emotions were that black and white easy, that a bop or happy music in general can wash your pain and sadness away. But for many it’s these type of slower, deeper meaningful ballads which help with coping grieve. For me at least it does.

Obviously there will be melancholic songs ( probably more so this year as writers write from personal experiences) however I am looking at it from a competition perspective( one night of songs) and thinking of the voter sitting at home watching the ESC final and hearing these songs once. Many will be touched by more meaningful ballads but many more will want something less dark.

Also a fun coincidence.

When I was singing Dive Into Unknown to myself earlier trying to add my own flavour, I noticed how similar the progression and the melody of the chorus is to a slowed down version of Blondie’s ‘Tide Is High’.

I love the production. The melody is not as haunting as I expected and not as memorable, unfortunately. It’s actually quite cheerful for a funeral song though. Cannot connect with the lyrics at all.

And who the heck holds a funeral at 6AM on Sunday? Get real, Helena, Chris, Nellie and Oliver.

I feel really saddened by some comments (on most of Wiwibloggs articles on Victoria’s songs), some people really lack empathy. Yes, it’s a complicated time for most of us. Yes, her songs are dark, disturbing and sad. Yes, she does talk about death, depression, sadness, loneliness and etc. But is that a problem ? What is the point of being an artist if they can’t even express their feelings and their memories through what they do best ?

You have every right to want a positive song! I’m not asking to have only sad and dark songs of course. I was mainly referring to people who feel that her music is all the same and that she tries to make herself look morbid. I just wanted people to understand that you have the right not to like the songs or that you want something else but that you still have to respect a minimum of a person’s work. Moreover, as an artist, she has the right to play a character or to express what she wants through her… Read more »

Just because it’s pandemic the contestants should send party and upbeat songs…

Blas’ preferred nf song by ESC fans is also quite sad and no one talks how he should go with Memoria and not with other song.

Yes, this song is a little bit weird and depressing, but I think it can still do very well in Eurovision.

Imaginary Friend, that I also like, is lyrically somehow quite poor and straightorward compared to this or Tears Getting Sobber.

Literally, you’re confusing two things: singing a sad song and singing a sad song with a dark character. Moreso, it seems as if you think that every slow song or ballad is automatically sad which is quite disturbing, to say the least. I say the more variety, the better, but I still have a word (as I will the voting person in May) whereas I like the song and theme Victoria is giving, or not. Victorian fans are all like “Let us have some slow songs, sad songs, we want the right to express ourselves and cry”. But when it… Read more »

I don’t find this song amazing either, but these complaints are unfair. First of all, there are all of the complaints about this being too depressing.

A lot of people like to listen to sadder songs when sad, and this is personally great for me. And this song isn’t even sad? Like it’s very bittersweet, but I would not call it sad or depressing, it is actually more uplifting, if you actually listen to the lyrics. I… Read more »

It’s a No-No. I agree with some fans who say this could be triggering for some people. How can I put it? I have a neighbor under a big depression. She tries to be ok, she’s under treatment (She lost somebody due to Covid-19). She makes efforts to be fine, but any depressing thing generates a breakdown. I understand life is a sort of Ying and Yang, but we’ve had enough of depressing things. Why would we need more?

This is a song contest and not something for healing those who suffer depression. That’s why hospitals and psychologists exist. It annoys me how ESC fans started judging which songs are appropiate and which are not appropiate for Eurovision.

La La Love – nah, the song about infecting the generation with love is not appropiate

The Funeral Song – definetly not appropriate!

My favorites are still Dive Into the Unknown, Imaginary Friend and Ugly Cry. When it comes to funeral songs, I prefer Danny’s offering from UMK, as it sounds way more personal. This feels like ”what if”, while Danny’s feels like ”when”, which makes a huge difference in impact. I still believe that we need dark songs too. I sometimes need catharsis. Sometimes, I need to hear about anger, stress, depression and death. Sometimes, I feel like listening to something ironic, spicy or even crass, as long as it’s not mean-spirited. Happiness is beautiful and much needed, but it’s not the… Read more »

I agree with you that this particular song has some (accidental) triggers on the lyrics and that’s why I don’t like them, but I feel Colin was actually addressing the rant of some that all Victoria’s song are sad and people want happy songs during the pandemic (or normally in Eurovision). I can be wrong, of course, but since he also said that he prefers other songs, I assumed it. I don’t think we need to worry though. I don’t see this one being picked. It would be too tone deaf.

It will be difficult with an avalanche of Eurovision songs coming on the corner, but I intend to listen this EP without distractions to figure out the bigger picture. For now, I’m under the impression that both “Phantom Pain” and “The Funeral Song” were handled with “heavy hands”. The first one goes too far with Billie’s influence to the point it got artificial and this one is probably too graphic with the lyrics and its theme. By the way, both have the same songwriters signing it along with Victoria, so maybe I just don’t like their style. The 3 previous… Read more »

I totally agree. And I would add that siding a melancholic song, a cheesy love song, an angry song and a carefree uplifiting one usually ends up being a good way to showcase the strenghts of all of them. Ying and Yang. Life is the balance of positive and negative, bright and dark. Or, twisting the words of a recent Eurovision winner, feelings AND fireworks.

I like the coherence of her selection of songs. She is not trying to jump through all kinds of genres that have no connection to her or that potentially spark “a banger”. Her songs are profound and melodious. Together with her delicate, crispy voice she has some great output here with a lot of potential to do great in the contest. However, The Funeral Song is the one with the least instant appeal to me. I hope BNT and her team choose one of the other songs.

I wouldn’t call it glorifying but it’s a questionable, controverse topic and is not that sensitive. I would put it in my playlist but I’m not sure if it’s the best song under the current circumstances.

Obviously, there are exceptions (especially if Norway does their due diligence and picks IMERIKA).

I just still don’t see it. The tracks make a pretty interesting and distinct EP up but they’re not singular. It just feels like she’s disenchanted with the contest and just using the platform and the exposure. If she had a collection of five diverse songs the whole process of gradually revealing them would make much more sense. Those songs we are being treated until now should make for a much more wholesome experience if experienced continuously when playing the EP.

Ugly cry still the strongest for me so far. Saving the best for last maybe?
