So, now that we've heard all the songs (except Belarus' song assuming they still participate) how do the songs of 2021 compare to the songs that never got performed last year? Obviously some of these songs are quite new to our ears so our view might change as we digest them a bit but there's nothing to stop you from either answering now and then again in a few months or just waiting to do this until later.

ALBANIA: Fall from the Sky (Arilena Ara) vs. Karma (Anxhela Peristeri)
AUSTRALIA: Don't Break Me (Montaigne) vs. Technicolour (Montaigne)
AUSTRIA: Alive (Vincent Bueno) vs. Amen (Vincent Bueno)

Additionally for fun I've decided to include the artists that didn't get chosen again to represent their countries this year, either with their failed NF entries or their most recent single (as long as it's released after the ESC cut-off date: Sept 1, 2020). For these songs I've included links if you're interested in checking them out and comparing. You can also just answer the ones you know and leave out the ones you don't.

Quite telling that out of these bonus artists I would only prefer the current entry from Finland and Poland over last year's artists most recent singles lol. Some of these were great discoveries too! Especially Ben & Tan and Damir Kedzo's new stuff (which includes a former Croat ESC singer) which were both added to my playlist after this along with Albania and Russia! (Sweden and Norway were already there tongue.gif)

2020: 14
2021: 25

Personally I'm much preferring a lot of the 2021 choices. I doubt my views on Norway, The Netherlands and Poland are widely shared but these three have a lot of replay value for me. So did Attention to be fair, but I wasn't huge on Grow or Empires.

Voices is MUCH better from Sweden for me, I love The Mamas but wasn't mad about Move.

ALBANIA: Fall from the Sky (Arilena Ara) - Well ahead, Karma is generic and 'Fall From The Sky' was one of my favourite ballads from last year.
AUSTRALIA: Technicolour (Montaigne) - Wonderfully complex song compared to the one from last year which didn't grab me.
AUSTRIA: Alive (Vincent Bueno) - didn't really care for either though
AZERBAIJAN: Cleopatra (Efendi) - gotta give props to the original for... originality
BELARUS: Da vidna (VAL) - lol
BELGIUM: The Wrong Place (Hooverphonic) - night and day, turning one of the most boring of last year into a fun alt pop trip
BULGARIA: Tears Getting Sober (Victoria) - love her new one still but Tears Getting Sober does have that extra stanning magic this doesn't have
CROATIA: Tick-Tock (Albina)
CYPRUS: Running (Sandro)
CZECH REPUBLIC: Omaga (Benny Cristo) - not keen on it but it IS a step up from Kemama
DENMARK: Yes (Ben & Tan) - still mourning Ben & Tan, even if Fyr & Flamme have a catchy song
ESTONIA: What Love Is (Uku Suviste) - gah I loved this one, and the new one is so bad
FINLAND: Dark Side (Blind Channel) - from 0 to 100
FRANCE: Voilą (Barbara Pravi) - like literally, France and Finland were two of my least favourites last year and now they're two of my top 3, insane
GEORGIA: Take Me as I Am (Tornike Kipiani) - oh Tornike, what could have been
GERMANY: I Don't Feel Hate (Jendrik)
GREECE: Supergirl (Stefania)
ICELAND: Think About Things (Daši og Gagnamagniš)
IRELAND: Maps (Lesley Roy)
ISRAEL: Feker libi (Eden Alene)
ITALY: Zitti e Buoni (Måneskin) - after Bulgaria, the highest quality country across both years
LATVIA: Still Breathing (Samanta Tīna)
LITHUANIA: On Fire (The Roop)
MALTA: Je Me Casse (Destiny)
MOLDOVA: Prison (Natalia Gordienko) - hey now THIS was a nice ballad, far prefer this to that 'Sugar' mess that is admittedly growing on me
NETHERLANDS: Birth of a New Age (Jeangu Macrooy) - what an improvement and important entry
NORTH MACEDONIA: Here I Stand (Vasil) - don't enter songs called 'You' it's never good
NORWAY: Fallen Angel (Tix) - 'Fallen Angel' is really damn catchy
POLAND: Empires (Alicja)
PORTUGAL: Love Is on My Side (The Black Mamba)
ROMANIA: Alcohol You (Roxen)
RUSSIA: Uno (Little Big) - Add Russia to that list as third after Bulgaria and Italy
SAN MARINO: Adrenalina (Senhit ft. Flo Rida)
SERBIA: Hasta La Vista (Hurricane)
SLOVENIA: Amen (Ana Soklič)
SPAIN: Universo (Blas Cantó)
SWEDEN: Move (The Mamas)
SWITZERLAND: Répondez-moi (Gjon's Tears)
UKRAINE: Shum (Go_A)
UNITED KINGDOM: My Last Breath (James Newman)

2020: 22
2021: 17

I love 2021, I'd actually think it's better overall than 2020 but some of those matchups aren't kind for showing that.

BonusL
LITTLE BIG / RUSSIA: Uno (2020)
THE MAMAS / SWEDEN: In The Middle (2021)
ULRIKKE / NORWAY: Falling Apart (2021)

I prefer Ulrikke's new single over Tix but I unashamedly love "Fallen Angel" way more than I ever did "Attention" - it's a great song and she delivered a great performance but Tix is a really weird guilty pleasure of mine laugh.gif

This and the people choosing 'I Don't Feel Hate' over 'Violent Thing' are hurting my soul

*Even though I'm far from a Jendrik hater, Germany are still in my top 10/15


2021 has shaped up really well to say that all of my top 3 acts from last year were thrown in the trash laugh.gif

I agree, Attention is vocally brilliant and a strong song but for some reason I never return to it. Fallen Angel is more my type of thing, it has a strange charm to it.

On Germany, the two songs are impossible to compare really, and I could pick Violent Thing on a different day. However, it's not something I ever seek out to play, whereas Jendrik does have a certain 'must hit repeat' value to it.

Israel Feker libi
Italy Zitti e buoni (hardest one for me as they're both in my top 2 D:)
Latvia Still Breathing
Lithuania On Fire
Malta Je Me Casse
Moldova Sugar
Netherlands Birth Of A New Age
North Macedonia You
Norway Attention
Poland Empires
Portugal Medo de sentir
Romania Amnesia
Russia Uno
San Marino Adrenalina
Serbia Hasta La Vista
Slovenia Voda
Spain Universo
Sweden Voices
Switzerland Repondez-moi
Ukraine Solovey
United Kingdom Embers

Slightly in favour of 2020, but a fair few of the ones I preferred in 2020 such as Slovenia, Portugal, Denmark, North Macedonia and Albania, weren't big favourites anyway. I'd say 2021 is a better year overall for sure!
