Eurovision NI Awards 2017: Worst Lyrics

Eurovision NI Awards, Eurovision NI Awards 2017

Lyrics can make or break a song. While it is difficult to know what makes good lyrics, it is really easy to tell when they don’t have the desired effect and come across as insincere, don’t make any sense, are garbled English, or force a rhyme for the sake of it. Here are the worst offenders in 2017 for Worst Lyrics.

Worst Lyrics

Sandra Bjurman for ‘Skeletons’ (Azerbaijan)

‘Now I’m into daydreams/Amazed by thorn jeans/Deep into high extremes/When I’m with him it’s fantasy/We’re just like alchemy/Oh, I feel ready.’

Kasia Moś, Pete Baringger and Rickard Bonde Truumeel for ‘Flashlight’ (Poland)

‘You call off the dogs, I got them hypnotised.’

Adis Eminić, Iva Boršić and Momčilo Zeković for ‘Space’ (Montenegro)

‘Linen is covered with feathers/Wet dreams, wild nightmares, I surrender/Come into me from within/We can be as one in the sin.’


‘Show me your superpowers/I’m Venus and Mars of the hour/I’ll protect you if you come my way/Let’s soar through the Milky Way.’

Anja Nissen, Angel Tupai and Michael D’Arcy Emman for ‘Where I Am’ (Denmark)

‘Putting up my walls so that I last better.’

‘It’s the spirit of the night, spirit of the night/Burning like St. Elmo’s fire/Spirit of the night, takes our feelings so much higher.’

Romy Papadea, John Ballard and Dimitris Kontopoulos for ‘This is Love’ (Greece)

‘Holding on to what we had can be so self-destroying/Remember how we laughed and played around till night met the morning?’

‘There are only two ways to live your life/One is as though nothing is a miracle/The other is as though everything is a miracle’
