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. Continue reading

It’s been a while since Greece have been on form at Eurovision. Last year, they ruined their perfect record of always qualifying for the final when Argo’s ‘Utopian Land’ didn’t impress audiences or make it to the Final. Prior to that they have also had a string of poor results with Maria Elena placing in 19th the year before and Freaky Fortune placing 20th the year before that again. This is a far cry from their golden years 2004-2011 where they placed in the top ten every year including a win in 2005. 2017 however could be the year that they begin to turn their fortunes around again as they have chosen Greek pop princess Demy and her song ‘This is Love’.
