Germany: Levina – Perfect Life

  What felt like an eternal Moldovan national final wrapped up in a convoluted and pointless format is finally over. Unser Song has delivered a result: Levina will be performing Perfect Life in May's Eurovision Grand Final. There are obvious Titanium influences here, but the UK were guilty of borrowing Coldplay's guitar riff last year and both Sweden and Denmark have been guilty of lifting ideas before. Let's call it a score draw and move on. When I first heard Perfect Life, I was reminded of Josh Dubovie's That Sounds Good To Me, in that they both have that simplistic positivity narrative you'd expect from…
Song Appeal
Vocal Strength
Staging Potential
Likely Televote Appeal
Likely Jury Appeal
Cohesiveness of Package

Perfectly Lifeless

There is absolutely no reason to vote for this song. There's no hook, no passion and no relevance to current musical trends.

When I first heard Perfect Life, I was reminded of Josh Dubovie’s That Sounds Good To Me, in that they both have that simplistic positivity narrative you’d expect from a high school music project. Perfect Life is much better than Josh’s travesty of a song, but it’s still extremely safe and is more suited to a cabaret show than the Eurovision Song Contest. There is absolutely no reason to vote for this song. There’s no hook, no passion and no relevance to current musical trends.

There are rumours of a rework, but discounting an absolute miracle, Germany are staying in the bottom five and potentially on for another last place.

Are Germany on for the first ever last place hat trick?

  1. Easy bottom 5, likely the lowest scoring Big 5 country yet again. Totally insipid song with a very average singer and no reason to vote for it.

  2. And they were aiming for top 10! :D:D:D

  3. Bottom five is a certainty. Last place very likely, them or Spain probably. It’s like turning up to a gun fight armed with a white flag. Take a knife and at least get a few jabs in before going down.

  4. Ironically enough it’s the second year in a row that France & Germany have released there entry on the same day and it’s the 2nd time that France has blown Germany out of the water.

  5. Bar Spain I really can’t see this not coming last as I really dont see a song from a semi finalist as bad as this qualifying, i’d but ALOT of money on a big 5 country coming last (Germany & Spain the main ones) that’s all ill say. Annoys me a song of this quality is qualifying directly :/

  6. Who wrote this Angela Merkel?.Terrible.Cant see any votes or this,jury or televote.

  7. I quite like it ^_^
    Not being a devils advocat here, don’t know anything about songs chances, but I adore it 🙂

  8. The song has some potential in there but at the moment it’s so bland and middle of the road it’s untrue. Levina is dressed more like an office manager than a pop singer. The performance needs more attack and they need to ‘rock it up’ for it to have any chance of doing well.

    But as things stand,like Durham, I can’t see many televoters putting it in their top 3 or juries in their top 10. There are few easy votes to be got from diaspora or ‘friends’, so I agree with many here that we are looking at an Ann Sophie style bottom 5 finish.

  9. Just hit me – 7 of 8 songs so far are sung by female solo singers. 😀
    What a diversity!! Where will thirsty women and gays look for joy?
