And we are off!
We are about two months away to the most prominent music competition of the year, Eurovision! It is always interesting to hear what kind of songs that the various artists perform every year. It looks like 2018 isn’t a disappointment with fantastic talent like Netta!
Released this Sunday, “Toy” is an interesting piece. It starts off with Netta using various sounds to compose the starting melody. Then she uses a peculiar sound: the bawk of the chickens. Yet, that “oddity” makes “Toy” catchy and memorable.
It’s not only the scatting that makes this song memorable. Netta’s own vocals and her personality shine through. My favorite part of the song has to be around the 2:25 mark when Netta belts out soulfully. Also, the lyrics are very significant as relate to the #MeToo campaign and also mentions Wonder Woman, a character that was portrayed by Israeli actress Gal Galdot last year.
Netta’s song is fun, catchy, and unforgettable. It is definitely one of the stars of this year’s Eurovision. Although it isn’t my number one (I will reveal that in due time, I promise), “Toy” is a funky piece that I enjoy quite a bit. My favorite part is the chorus part. Also, the musical interlude that connects the first part with the second part. Even if Netta doesn’t win Eurovision this year, I hope she continues on making music as she is very talented and creative.
