Blas is dropping two songs on Wednesday, "Voy a quedarme" and "Memoria", and will leave it up to the public to decide which one becomes his 2021 entry. Here's hoping for something a lot better and more stand-out than "Universo".

Here they are





I think they're both a step up from "Universo" but only in a 'potential last place' to 'potential 21st' sorta way. I'd give the slight edge to "Memoria".

They're both fine in a Spotify/radio playlist kinda way but for Eurovision they both have last place written all over them, oh Spain!

"Memoria" is a song title with a great track record.

I like Blas Canto much more than I'd expect myself to, I think both are good possibilities, probably not to get noticed but "Voy Y Quedarme" probably has more chance of having a moment, if they can bring one together.

I loved his song last year. Unfortunately, I think this will have the same fate as Tu Canción.

Beautiful and heart-warming tribute to his grandmother who passed away recently due to Covid. wub.gif

Surprisingly, the English version is so much more emotive and engaging! The Juries would surely prefer this version?

Completely agree but TVE has this obsession of sending songs prioritising language over quality or possibilities of a higher position. Not like the channel shows that they care about winning/hosting anyway. Also it is not like it has been extremely successful in the past for Spain when we have sent a song entirely in English (see 2016). If I were Blas I would push for trying to perform a bilingual version a la Ruth Lorenzo.

The English version is SO much better. Still not sure it would be top half of my rankings due to this being such a strong year but it definitely wouldn't be teetering around the bottom as one of my least favourites.
