Tobson's Ranking: #32 Denmark

Another sweet girl with another piece of sweet radio pop. But it does nothing for me.

Soluna Samay - Should Have Known Better (Denmark 2012)

In many ways, the Danish offering is falling into the same trap as the Dutch lass. When you start having doubts that your song is strong enough in its own right, you want to add a visual element as well.

While Joan Franka had her plumage steal the show, Soluna not only decided to put on the largest hat she could find but she also invited along a hip-hop cello player, an energetic piano/xylophone player and a backing singer on an armchair.

As none of these elements had anything to do with the song, they mainly distracted focus away from Soluna herself. A bunch of people with no coordination performing a song that is nice but not remarkable. Not a recipe for success.

My grade: 2/5
