Tobson Ranking: #40 Romania

Hammer out a simple song that everyone can sing along with. If you do it well, you're unbeatable. If you do it badly... then you are these guys.

Hotel FM - Change (Romania 2011)

Usually, this is what Romania does really well. They send in simple but efficient, hooky little numbers that I normally defend with quite some passion.

At first, I thought this ditty was OK as well. And then it all fell apart. The cheap production, the cheesy lyrics, the taste of plastic in my mouth as soon as the chorus started.

And when this group turned out to be almost as smug as the Belgians...

No, thank you. But I have great expectations on hearing a much better song from Romania next year. A much much much better song.

My grade: 1 / 5


  1. I didnt like it when it was selected in Romania - i liked it less on the ESC. surprised this made the final; it's just awful.
