It’s news to absolutely no one that the social media landscape is riddled with landmines. Distanced from the decency that mediates real-life interaction, people seated behind a keyboard or clutching a phone suddenly feel it’s OK to belittle, bully and berate others. Sometimes it’s for kicks, sometimes it’s to make up for whatever is lacking in their personal life, and other times it’s out of sheer jealousy, rage or malice. With “I Don’t Feel Hate”, Germany’s upbeat and chirpy song for Eurovision 2021, Jendrik shines a light into this dark space. The lyrics and music video suggest he feels pity for all those people who, as they lash out, are likely languishing inside: When you constantly drip poison, it’s only natural that you absorb some of the toxins.

But his message isn’t limited to young people and Twitter. Jendrik gave life to this song against the backdrop of growing populist movements and the rise of politicians like Donald Trump, who many feel has stoked hate to advance a particular agenda. Yes, this is a playful number with an outrageous video. But “I Don’t Feel Hate” carries a message that’s as universal as it is specific.

Germany in Eurovision 2021: Jendrik “I Don’t Feel Hate”

Jendrik Sigwart, 26, is a multi-instrumentalist with a background in piano and violin. A diverse performer who thrives in the limelight, he appeared in shows like “Hairspray”, “La Cage aux Folles” and “Berlin, Berlin” while studying musical theatre at Osnabrück University of Applied Sciences. Throughout his time there he wrote songs on his favourite instrument — the ukelele. Among them is “Dibdibidi”, which he published in November 2016.

Naturally his love of performance had to be put on hold after coronavirus hit, shutting theatres and other performance spaces. So instead of taking to the stage, this bleach blonde wonder set about producing his Eurovision song and making the music video — an elaborate and amusing process he documented on social media. A casting agent with German’s Eurovision selection team got wind of him after one of those videos went viral, resulting in him officially entering the selection process. The German team recently revealed that Jendrik earned the highest-ever score in the country’s meticulous selection process, which involved a panel of Eurovision experts and a separate panel of music industry professionals.

What do the “I Don’t Feel Hate” lyrics mean?

At their heart, the “I Don’t Feel Hate” lyrics encourage people not to absorb the negativity that’s directed at them. Jendrik — with his infectious smile and aura of positivity — calls on people to instead hold up a shield built of reason and compassion. The hate they give isn’t a burden for you — it’s a reflection of the shortcomings and difficulties of the person throwing all that shade. When you remember that, it’s easier to scroll on past rather than hitting reply. That has an added bonus: Trolls lose power when they can’t cause a stir. As Jendrik sings: “I really don’t mind to be your rival, ’cause for your kind it’s essential for survival.”

The video tells this story in a bright and cheery way, and carries a homespun feel that’s perfect for these do-it-yourself, financially leaner times. Many will compare it to Latvia’s 2014 entry “Cake To Bake”, which had a similarly feel-good flair. But this is a cake served hot — and perhaps spiked with whiskey, cocktails, rum, rum, rum.

Set in the “Wash Your Worries Away” laundromat, this is all about cleaning up your mind as you deal with any and all ugly speech that’s thrown at you. Among the scenarios Jendrik brings to life are a beauty pageant for “Germany’s Next Little Miss Sunshine”. Sneering judges hold up signs that read “Ugly”, “Can’t Move” and “Zero Points” before throwing tomatoes at a male contestant. Later we see wealthy women throwing trash at a custodial worker, and bouncers refusing entry to someone based on their make-up. Later, a stressed-out waitress encounters surly customers with signs that say “Customer is King” and “Just Smile”. Say it with me now: Ruuuude.

Creating hate accounts, spreading misinformation to undermine someone’s credibility, always going to the dark place rather than giving someone the benefit of the doubt — it’s all a bit passé to Jendrik: “You feel so very clever whenever you find another way to wear me down.”

But here’s the catch: none of it actually bothers him. When he shouts “Sorry” in the instrumental chorus, it’s almost like an explosion goes off. This likely mirrors the mind-blowing reality among Jendrik’s haters that he’s getting on happily and is ready to slay another day. Why else we he hold up a sign with the lyrics, “You can wigglе with that middle finger, it’ll never wiggle back to you”? Naturally he punctuates the line with a smiley face.

I Don’t Feel Hate lyrics – Jendrik (Germany Eurovision 2021)

Songtext “I Don’t Feel Hate”
I don’t feel hate
I just feel sorry
you feel so very clever whenever you find another way to wear me down
But I don’t feel hate
I just feel sorry
so you can wiggle with that middle finger it’ll never wiggle back to you
’cause i don’t feel

sorry

I really don’t care that you want to bash me
do it with flair and I’ll let you be
(I’ll let you be common Eileen)
but don’t you dare, mmm, to get angry when you realise those words just don’t hit me (whaaat?)

Cause I don’t feel hate
I just feel sorry
you feel so very clever whenever you find another way to wear me down
But I don’t feel hate
I just feel sorry
so you can wiggle with that middle finger it’ll never wiggle back to you
’cause i don’t feel
hate

sorry

I really don’t mind to be your rival
cause for your kind it’s essential for survival (say what)
(he did not just say that)
yes I did, and I feel sorry, I don’t feel hate, that’s the whole point of the song

I guess you need patronization
as some kind of validation:
you won’t cope with the frustration
that your random me-fixation
is another affirmation
that you’re just a hateful person who’s not really better than me!

(trumpet and whistle duet)
(tap break)

(I don’t feel hate)
I don’t feel hate
(I just feel sorry)
I just feel sorry
(you feel so very clever whenever you find another way to wear me down)

Meine Damen und Herren das war’s mit “I Don’t Feel Hate” ich hoffe Sie haben noch ein derbe
nices Leben und bis bald.

[Ladies and gentlemen, that was “I Don’t Feel Hate”! I hope you have a nice life and see you soon!]

(but I don’t feel hate)
No no no no
(I just feel sorry)
I just feel sorry
(you feel so very clever whenever you find another way to wear me down)
don’t wear me down
(I don’t feel hate)
I don’t feel hate
(I just feel sorry)
I just feel sorry
(so you can wiggle wiggle wiggle wiggle wiggle wiggle wiggle wiggle you)
wiggle wiggle wiggle you
‘cause I Don’t feel

I actually think it’s quite a clever entry. It’s not boring or bland, it’s definitely memorable. It’s better than the average British entry, which is not to say that it’s a better song, but it doesn’t try to be as middle-of-the-road as possible. Do I personally like it? No. Do I know lots of people who will like this? Yes.

I read the comments before listening the song and y’all too dramatic. It’s definitely an earworm, it grabs attention. Yes, it is funny, weird and silly but it was clearly supposed to be that way. It’s not a serious song. I personally like some parts of the song and don’t like others. I can see why some people don’t like it but it’s not the worst. It’s just not for everyone. If the staging is good and if he sings well live, it can actually come alive and be more enjoyable. I feel like it’s this kind of a song… Read more »

A chirpy happy song with a positive message which will resonate with viewers. Depending on running order and staging I can see this doing well with the Televote. For the jury vote, mmm who can tell?

On a separate note, if a recorded playback version is used in the SF, can a live ‘Rotterdam’ version be used on the final or does it have to be recorded in SF equals recorded in final? Have a great day readers!

I’m sorry but I really like this song. It’s catchy, it’s infectious, and it’s really really positive, and it has a lot Sunshine and New Orleans vibe, I just can’t hate it.
And this song really has point, though. We always focused on the hate, the toxicity, and the negativity that we always forget the bright side of things and smile, and it’s really nice to have a smile every once in a while, especially in this times everything seems to be going upside down.

Internet culture is becoming too much from both sides, the haters’ and the anti-haters’. In any case, I think this song will be Top 15 with a good staging. I get modern Alf Poier vibes.

This video and song reminds me of the teenage tv-series W817 (w-acht-één-zeven, which also happens to mean as much as “wait a minute”) that aired in Flanders twenty years ago and since then still enjoys a HUGE cult following. Re-runs of the show are still happening to date so new audiences of teenagers also discovered it over the years.

I kind of understand why they think that, but on the other hand, I think we are too obsessed with ranking and we are missing out the fun.

I am not a huge fan of the song, however I admit that maybe this will bring a smile on Europe after all that we’ve been through. The intro reminds me of Malta’s 2013 act and afterwards I get UK 2015 vibes but I mean that in a positive way, like a UK 2015 upgraded version. It is highly staging-dependent but with a clever staging this could be a top 10 contender. However for me it is apparent that this is not the ESC 2021 winner. It is miles better than their 2019 act, I think that their 2020 song… Read more »

Eurovision is still great this year because we have Benny Cristovao, the Czech representative, who is a very likable and intelligent person. The interview he gave wiwi recently was such a nice listen. A very wholesome young man and artist who had a pretty humble and challenging start in life because of some circumstances of his upbringing. A star in Czechia as well as a beloved artist in the fandom. The one who made “Kemama” and “Omaga”. Very witty artist. *And multi-talent*. That’s being witty made good. No “butts smacked”.

The visual makes the song more palatable. I mean, don’t get me wrong, it is still an outrageously silly and stupid song, but with a weird and fantastical production when a lot of kids might be watching as well as drunk adults, I can see this actually being a form of entertainment and therefore scoring quite well with the public.

I mean I get the song is supposed to be super positive and a good message, which is nice, but the actual quality of the song is so low. Just because a song is positive doesn’t make it a good song to listen to. I’m really surprised that this won over the German juries and was selected. Granted it is a fun song, but I just don’t see it don’t well at all

Entirely possible. Both songs are more televote draws than something juries will appreciate. Cyprus will fight for the votes with ”seduction”, while Germany will do it with ”cuteness”. If lives are both good, I predict Cyprus getting somewhat bigger jury score, but if Germany manages to get a better televote response, they could score higher overall.

A fun song, fair enough, it will be of entertainment value and this is welcomed, but it’s not a great song. The sentiment is right and appropriate for our time, but if this was in the semi-final, it would struggle to qualify. It looks like Germany wants to be in competition with Iceland with quirkiness. I wish him the best with his originality but this has the potential to be bottom 5 in my opinion. ‘Sisters’ a few years ago was better than this and that ended up with 0 from televoting.

This is my issue: I generally don’t like songs about “the haters.” I find a lot of them to petulant and a way for the performers to immediately discount criticism as “being a hater.” There are exceptions, of course – plenty of rap songs address “haters” and they’re total bops. But whenever it’s some kind of chirpy pop singer doing it, it takes on this unbearable kind of smugness. I love Taylor Swift, for instance, but most of her songs addressing the “haters” (“Shake It Off,” “Look What You Made Me Do,” “You Need to Calm Down,” big exception is… Read more »

Jessika’s song in San Marino’s 1in360 with Irol was my favorite and it was a cool love fling-type bop. It was great. Then they changed the lyrics, forced Jenni B into it, and tried to turn it some sort of anti-bullying anthem, and it instantly became a joke. And of course it did very poorly — to no one’s surprise.

Yeah, see, on the one hand I feel the same way about it not improving once Irol left it…but the difference is, it’s tiny little San Marino, and I DID find it endearing to see them standing up for themselves like that (and I wish they kept the “Justice for Valentina!” signs in the live performance).

I guess the problem with anti-bullying songs is that if you try too hard to say you’re not affected by haters, it may ending up sounding a little passive-aggressive. In this particular case, if he’s so immune to hate, why he spent the whole song affirming it and not just singing a happy song?

Didn’t ZENA sing about him in 2019? Perhaps that is why she did less well.

I’ve learnt the English language by watching British comedians. So I’m very grateful to them. 🙂

Hope you were discriminating about which ones, though. Some of the folks on Countdown are barely speaking English to begin with…

It all started off with Sarah Millican. Then it was Peter Kay, Russell Howard, Billy Connolly, Alan Carr, Frankie Boyle and so on… 🙂

The one you take as your username doesn’t deserve much admiration, though.

I change my usernames often.

And shoo please with your negative vibes. Haven’t heard a single positive response from you.

Have a few spoons of sugar. You’re bitter and I don’t like that. 😛

Oh, if you’re learning English from watching Billy Connolly, you’re gonna have one colorful vocabulary.

That I do. 😛 The Colonoscopy clip is a classic. Watched it hundreds of times and it makes me cry with laughter every time. 😀

Though I must admit I usually abstract from that and love shaking to “Shake it Off”. 😀 Let’s see if Jendrik will get me there too…
