Although Eurovision Songs Contest brought out some of the best songs, it included songs which had no meaning or place at Eurovision. As such here are the Top 10 Inappropriate/Underachieving Eurovision songs of 2011.
1. Austria: “The Secret of Love”
Although her video and performance is stunning, the lyrics to Nadine Beiler’s song “The Secret of Love” is not. It is more appropriate for a Disney song or movie. The message also lacks meaning and purpose.
2. Estonia: “Rockefeller Street”
Getter Jaani does an excellent job performing the song in Eurovision Songs Contest of 2011. The song, however, sings about New York and the fictional Rockefeller Street. New York as we all know it is not in Europe and lacks belonging inside a European contest.
3. Georgia: “One More Day”
In the song, Eldrine lacks vocals and dance moves. She mostly resorts to screaming and the voice is not in tune with the music. When singing rock style she would sing in one tone, even though the beat changes.
4. Armenia: “Boom Boom”
Although Emmy put on a satisfactory performance, the song lacked adult vulgar language. The Boom Boom song sounded as if it was for children, using childish language, such as “Chacalaca.” It should also be noted that Emmy was singing a basic song which was not in tuned with the music in the background.
5. Germany: “Taken by Stranger”
This song lacked meaningful purpose. It still is not clear why Lena was wondering mysteriously as she was singing the song or how the music reflected the words. The beat was also dull and one should note the lack of energy there was to the performance. One thing clear is that she got into the finals because she was representing a country that was part of the “Big 4”.
