The Wiwi Jury — our in-house team of music unprofessionals — is reviewing and rating the 37 competing songs in Eurovision 2024. Next we review Estonia, who have chosen 5MIINUST x Puuluup with “(nendest) narkootikumidest ei tea me (küll) midagi”.

Are we on a drug-free high when listening to the song? Read on to find out!

5MIINUST x Puuluup – “(nendest) narkootikumidest ei tea me (küll) midagi” (Estonia Eurovision 2024)

Review: 5MIINUST x Puuluup – “(nendest) narkootikumidest ei tea me (küll) midagi”

Ruxandra: This entry is enjoyable, but sometimes less is more, and there’s a lot happening simultaneously. While the song itself is fun to listen to, the lyrics go in this funny direction too, although their meaning isn’t entirely clear. What stands out most about this song is the live performance, with all of them having a great energy and a great interaction with each other. However, there are moments where the performance feels a bit too chaotic, and perhaps some more organisation could help. At some points, it’s overwhelming, you don’t know where you should look first.

Score: 6

Antranig: The Estonian entry is just not my cup of tea. I appreciate its authenticity and the representation of traditional Estonian sounds and culture at the contest. However, the positives end there. The song is all over the place musically and ends up looking like more of an ear infection than an earworm. However, with a 100% televote dictating the outcome of the semi-finals, this is a near certain qualifier. Let’s hope the performance is sufficiently eccentric to help it stand out further.

Score: 4.5

Scarlett: This entry is extra in the best way. From the very first note, you know you’re in for a wild ride. The deadpan rapping from the hip hop group 5MIINUST and the traditional instrumentals from the folk duo Puuluup are just a plain good time. (Also, thank you Puuluup for introducing me to the talharpa.) It’s a tongue-in-cheek song by a bunch of lads about having a good time. While I keep trying (and failing) to pronounce the never-ending song title, you can catch me hollering and bopping along to the chorus. 

Score: 8

Deban: This reads more “medicine cabinet” than rock and roll. Shouty in most parts, and gimmicky at best, Estonia has shown up to Eurovision with barrels of laughter, and imaginary kegs of cheap booze. Whilst 2024’s Eesti Laul showcased many worthy entries, this one is gunning for a victory of some sort. Yes, in the contest’s 68 year history, no song title has ever been this long!

Score: 3

One of the puzzling things about Eurovision after all of this time, is that there are still so many popular musical genres that still have not had anything even remotely approaching competent representation at the contest. Top of that list, and sadly for me as it is a genre that I am immensely fond of, is Hip Hop. Most Eurovision entries that have even touched upon it, have done so with the intention of making a full-out “joke” entry with little musical content. Thankfully, (Insert long Estonian song title here) keeps the humour complementary, rather than the singular focus. There’s… Read more »

This is a very unfunny song and among the circus acts it’s the only one that will NQ in my opinion. No idea why Reddit is obsessed with it, it’s just noisy and it lacks the catchy element.

I have to say this song is pure chaos but for some reason I like it. It is so unusual to see and hear something like this. In the beginning, I was skeptical and really disliked the song, but with time I began liking it.
I also think this will qualify for the final. It’s fun and people will definitely vote for it. However how well will it do during the final, no one knows.

Shocked by the low score, damn.
It’s original. It’s fun. It’s a mix of genres, hip hop x folk. It has traditional instruments. It has nice vocals and great rap. It is in Estonian. It’s bold. It’s unique. It’s out of a box. It’s something different from Estonia. It is the combination of the most popular artist in Estonia rn with one established and highly-appreciated artist.
For all of that, 10/10 and my absolute winner this year.

This whole song is based on instrument melodies, declarations and taunts. There are only two bass notes used in the entire three minutes: D and G. That’s literally all the content that this song provides, making it by far the weakest entry for song content in ESC 2024. However, the story the song tells is compelling to watch. The musical duo trying to convince the gang land that they don’t take drugs and are only high on music and a silly dance is hilarious to watch. The dance itself counts as a dance craze. If there were 50+ people on… Read more »

I agree, they should have chosen Ollie. Yet, I find this song rather amazing too! Eesti Laul had to pick between two great options. I am just sorry they missed on Ollie once again, as I want to see him in ESC, yet I don’t want him to become like Gebrasy, going year after year, each time with a weaker result. That said, I personally believe that Estonia will do really well in the televote. 🙂

ESTONIA – Just like Norway before it, Estonia tends to be a country whose entries I usually have at the very top of my ESC lists. What’s also impressive is that those entries are of very diverse styles, and yet often hit the right spot for me.  (Nendest) narkootikumidest ei tea me (küll) midagi) aka We (really) don’t know anything about (these) drugs (officially the longest Eurovision title ever, by the way) is no exception. In fact, it’s among the most interesting and most entertaining Eurovision songs in recent memory.  Two groups, consisting of six members overall, blend well together.… Read more »

well folk genre is the underdog in most European countries. it barely has had platforms to be seen. the tiktok generation has grown up with generic beats & no live instruments (bc they are poor and cannot afford festivals. rich folks go to festivals and concerts. poor folks just settle for spotify and poor quality. also, around 40% less people get to study folk or traditional music in European Universities, the funding was cut in favor of electronic and postindustrial.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: trenetelul walked so the Estonian say-no-to-drugs song could RUN! Literally all of Western Europe slept on it (myself included ashamedly so), when not only is folk-style more appreciated that the Eurobubble remembers, but also this is the exact kind of insanity that televoters love to vote for (case in point: Mama š?). I love this song and hope it does well, and seeing this lower score makes me more certain it will do well.
(Yes I am very aware I am a little delusional I just really love this one).

I liked it for a hot second, now I’m mostly indifferent. I love that the Estonian language is back but to be completely honest, it doesn’t do anything for me on stage. It was a rather weak Eesti Laul this year for me but Oblivion would’ve made a good entry. I still think Estonia probably made the right choice out of the finalists and that I’m just not the crowd for this but we’ll see. I’m not so sure of its success anymore.

“Very good for its genre” and you “don’t like this genre” so you score it low? Try to be a little bit more objective. It’s not about whether or not you like the genre.

13TH PLACE: ESTONIA: I have changed my mind multiple times about this song, starting off not liking it a lot but seeing it gradually earn some places in my ranking thanks to its infectious energy. The chorus and some parts of the verses are really catchy and the ethnic instrumental gives it a special identity. The second chorus perhaps takes too long to come and up until that point I’ve felt that the song has dragged on too much but the party factor it brings live and the fun dancing may elevate it, if the vocal performance is also on… Read more »

12. Estonia – 5minuust & Puuluup – 8/10 – with its alternative and unorthodox spirit, there is such a cheeky and subversive vibe going on here. I love a down-to-earth underdog and this act suitably deliver it. The beat is punchy, the vocal delivery is diverse and distinctive and the chorus has the required catchy hook. The live performance can be a little chaotic and I fear first-time audiences may need some context to join in this party. But Estonia, this is definitely the way to go, the heart and soul in this entry comes pouring through the screen.

Not really hypocritical. Even if both are labelled “jokes”, it doesn’t mean they are the same. Not every joke is funny. Like comparing Dame Edna to Mrs. Brown’s Boys. Kinda the same, but really not.

3) Estonia – I LOVE THIS. Over the past few years things haven’t been great, so I always want something silly to cling onto (like Croatia last year and of course Moldova in 2022) and Estonia’s entry fits the bill perfectly. I went into the Eesti Laul final blind this year, and I was so impressed by the quality of all of the entries, but I could tell this was the firm favourite. Incredibly catchy and one I definitely bop around to in my room, and there’s so much personality packed into this song. While it’s not my winner, I… Read more »

It’s really a question if Armenia or Estonia have more chances to have a Trenuletul effect in May. Though I can also see neither of them achieving this, given that 2022 was greatly a ballad year and a song like Trenuletul could stand out easier as this year with many “televoting magnets”. Still, I wish both Armenia (my 9th) and Estonia (my 13th) to do well!
