Eurovision 2010: Denmark

May 5, 2010

It’s not exactly the same by any means – after the consternation amongst Team Cyprus I figured I’d make absolutely clear about saying that – but Denmark’s song In A Moment Like This is reminiscent of Sting’s Every Breath You Take. It’s the opening guitar riff.

On the whole the song is reasonably effective at leaving the listener in no doubt what the chorus melody is, so on that basis alone it gets a tick in terms of melody. And harmonically it’s pretty pleasing too. The stage production seen in the Dane’s national final makes it look like exactly the kind of modest presentation I appreciate.

But you know – I’m long in the tooth and prone to moments of madness. After all, I did actually have a soft spot for the Dane’s 2004 Shame On You. It came crashed out of the 2004 contest in 14th place in the semis. What do I know?
