Eurovision 2017: [Slovenia] Omar Naber / On My Way

This has old-school Eurovision written into its manuscript.

‘On My Way’ has a strong discernible melody right from the off that makes me think we’re listening to a piece of musical theatre. In that way we’re transported back to the Eurovision of thirty years-ago. There are moments when I’m reminded of Germany’s 1988 song Lied fur Einen Freund. In that way, Slovenia’s 2017 song effortlessly taps into the spirit of German schlager.

But, ‘On My Way’ maintains its distinctiveness with a nauseating chorus. The melody creeps higher and higher with a Disney-esque resolution at the end.

I think this song will tank.
