Watching the video of the Eurovision 2017 festival, I found that the melodic quality Was very poor,flat songs,boring.The winning song was that of Portugal,nice music and lyrics.

In general, the songs look like "jenniferLopez/shakira/madona/katyperry/ U.S.A.style, they are supposed to be new songs but they are heard/already outdated, as if they had already been heard before.

The saying goes that "times are the times" and the times of different styles of music are different,well, then,let's go ahead and see what results/advances we will have in popular music around the world.

Eurovision song contest._

Winning song Portugal._ 'Love for both'

English version._

Two songs as an example to compare, although it says the comparisons are unpleasant.

"Flashlight" Paricipante song from Poland, sings Kasia Mos.

"Occidentali karma" Song paricipante of Italy, sings Francesco Gabbani.

Beautiful song from Italy.

Senza Fine(without end) .... Ornella Vanoni.

Any of these Polish songs are nicer than the song of the festival._

Weekend - Ona Tanczy Dla Mnie - Official Video (2012) She dances for me -

BTW Many of The songs that the composers of this forum have shown us have more melodic richness than most of the songs participating in this festival despite the orchestral arrangements.

Old folk song from Medjimurje region in Croatia...


Neither the sun, nor the moon
Neither the sun, nor  the moon
The night is too dark. x2
 
I ask you, little turtledove,
Where have you been last night? x2
 
I was at the flower garden,
I planted flowers. x2
 
And you, my darling dove,
I had on my mind. x2
 
Plant me a wild rose
Under my window. x2
 
Let it grow high
High as it can be. x2
 
The higher it gets, more beautiful it will be,
To look at the rose. x2
 
Just don't stick it on someone's chest. x2
 
Keep the one rose for me
One that turns out to be the most beautiful one. x2
 
The one that will blossom
Under a green leaf. x2




They tried to bury us. They didn't know that we were seeds. [Mexican proverb]

Whos singing over there,
Кто там поет (песня) Ko to tamo peva (pjesma)

From the 1980 Film of the Same name,


https://youtu.be/pvnowyBqs8E

( Only Google translate Sorry )

Holy morning on Saturday
day coming from a distance
the poor of this region
They wait for the sun to be dreaming
They wait for the sun to be dreaming
Her, her, her, her

For Belgrade (for Belgrade)
company "Krstic" (firm "Krstic")
it's just the people are getting ready
there are all reasons for the trip
Only luck is not likely
Only luck is not likely
No, her

I'm a cripple from a kid
I'm singing all the bad songs
I'd love to, motherly soap
that all this is all I'm missing
that all this is all I'm missing
Her, her, her, her

A lot of guns from the pot
Our teacher does not
Spring is '41.
It's springtime, evil is getting ready
It's springtime, evil is getting ready
Her, her, her, her

Mother soap (mother soap)
what is happening (what is happening)
sad song is playing
death has come to light
there is no peace anymore
there is no peace anymore
peace, her

Above the field of the raven fly
and gathers his flocks
this bird ossuary
It's going to be a war
It's going to be a war
Her, her, her, her

Svaba jase (svaba jase)
black horse (black horse)
we shook Europe
our army attack is waiting
she prepared a little cannon
she prepared a little cannon
Cannon, her

He's been preparing for a long time
This crazy, passionate flight
he obeyed to destroy
and build a new world
and build a new world
Her, her, her, her

Earth shakes (earth shaking)
everything is rushing (everything is rushing)
and Sunday there is no more
fascist murky birds
everything is under destruction
everything is under destruction
Her, her, her
