Denmark: Basim

Denmark Basim

 

 

Last night Basim won the battle against two other finalists to become the host country’s 2014 representative with Cliché Love Song – a heavily Bruno Mars-inspired one that the 21-year old has written himself. Basim competed in Denmark’s first season of the X Factor in 2008. Last year’s lovely Emmelie de Forest hoisted Denmark out of a fairly dismal decade at Eurovision: can Basim keep it from returning to the depths once again?

Shut your eyes, and you really can’t not hear Bruno Mars. As far as inoffensive Eurovision songs go, this one tops the charts, and at least by the title Basim acknowledges that the track is utterly boring. You can’t quite call his bopping about on stage ‘dancing’, and he could well do with having less space to strut about in his inexplicably undone bowtie. If you want to look casual, Basim, swap the satin for a considerably better-fitted denim number and go whole hog with the cropped trousers. Baring your ankles won’t bring sexy back.

Contagious rating: 8/10

 

 

Cliché Love Song

I met this lady – Lady
she was looking so dawn fine
But she was crazy – Crazy
it was all about party time

and lately – Lately
I felt like somethings wrong
So Flaky, and Shaky
When the sun went down

yeah, boom boom boom
when she walked the room
Even girls they whistle – (whistle)
I know, it’s hard to get her
She’s a special girl

It feels like
skuba duba dabda dididaj
skuba duba dabda dididaj
I love you
A another cliche baby
skuba duba dabda dididaj
skuba duba dabda dididaj
Baby I’ma do whatever you like
I love you
A another Cliche baby

Oh Oh Oh – Hey!
Oh Oh Oh – Hey!
Oh Oh Oh – Hey!
Another Cliche baby

Like Katy Perry – So Sexy
She could kiss a lucky girl
Taste like cherry – Cherry
Yeah, she could rock your world

Cloud Seven – Seven
I never felt like this before
She took me closer, to heaven
OMG, let’s go

Yeah, boom boom boom
when she walked the room
Even girls they whistle – (whistle)
I know, we could be together
You’re a special girl

It feels like
skuba duba dabda dididaj
skuba duba dabda dididaj
I love you
A another cliché baby
skuba duba dabda dididaj
skuba duba dabda dididaj
Baby I’ma do whatever you like
I love you
A another Cliché baby

Oh Oh Oh – Hey!
Oh Oh Oh – Hey!
Oh Oh Oh – Hey!
Another Cliché baby

Now tell me what I gotta do
Just give that little clue
Another Cliché baby
Now I’m just feeling blue
I gotta break through – To You
YEAH!!!
