1. Barrice – “Ela” ~Rating 10/10~
I officially LOVE this song. I loved it just from hearing the chorus and first verse, but once that instantly iconic breakdown instrumental kicks in at the end, it’s full blown amazingness. I had a moment while listening to this in full for the first time.
2. C:Real – “Crash & Burn” ~Rating 6/10~
Not my favorite, but once the electronic parts of the song hit it gets a lot more enjoyable. This isn’t fantastic but it’s not terrible either.
3. Maria Elena Kiriakou – “One Last Breath” ~Rating: 9/10~
Another song I love. This is a great soaring ballad that is delivered with vocal excellence. It’s not too dreary as many other of Eurovision ballads have been this year. It’s catchy.
4. Shaya – “Sunshine” ~Rating: 9/10~
Another excellent song. It sounds a bit more like a good Azerbaijan entry than a good Greek entry, but it’s good nonetheless. It would send a jolt of much needed energy into Eurovision if it won.
5. Thomai Apergi & Legend – “Jazz & Sirtaki” ~Rating: 2/10~
This is by far the worst song in this bunch. It’s for older fans only. A boring Jazz song I couldn’t even make it through once.
