Greece: Freaky Fortune feat. Risky Kidd

Greece Freaky Fortune

 

 

23-year olds Nicolas Raptakis and Theofilos Pouzbouris are on to something. Perez Hilton knew it back in 2012, when he picked them as the winner of one of his competitions for a cover of Katy Perry’s Part Of Me. They’ve developed a little bit since then, and with 19-year old British rapper Risky Kidd they will be morphing Eurovision into club night for three minutes and five seconds with Rise Up. Greece have made it to the final every year that they’ve competed, and last year’s kilted alcohol-loving band came in sixth place: is there room for a younger crowd in the top ten?

If these good-looking fellows don’t make it to the final, an EBU campaign to attract a younger demographic to watch the Contest would not go amiss (a good idea for its future, in any case). Risky Kidd is the weak link – with vocals, fashion and stage presence – in Rise Up, but Taio Cruz and Avicii should watch out…or collaborate ASAP to avoid being beaten to the top with this Harlem Shake beat. Doing anything but dance while this track is playing is almost impossible. BRB.

Contagious rating: 10/10

 

 

Rise Up

I feel like rising up
to the sky like I am a dove,
I’m in love with this feeling…
am I down or am I up?
I can’t frown cause I am in luck,
I’ve got the crowd and that’s enough…
I’m in love.

Come on and rise up rise up to the sky,
Come on and rise up get up and lose your mind,
Loosen up your feet and fly,
Get off the ground tonight.

Come on and rise up jump out of what keeps you down,
get high and rise up fly get your feet of the ground,
come on and rise up rise up rise up rise up rise rise rise…

I told her rise up, come along and rise up,
music makes me wanna, grab somebody rise up.

Come on and rise up dance till the final day,
no need to hold back drink like there is no other way,
Loosen up your feet and fly,
get off the ground tonight.

Come on and rise up jump out of what keeps you down,
get high and Rise up fly get your feet of the ground,
come on and rise up rise up rise up rise up rise rise rise…

I told her rise up, come along and rise up
music makes me wanna, grab somebody rise up.
I told her rise up, come along and rise up,
music makes me wanna, grab somebody rise up.

Yo, I am down to rise up, pour these shots like “why stop”?
I see you shaking, I’m a have to smack that my god!
I m blowing paper, balling call me later, balling call me later, balling call me mason.
Ey, our flow is oh so freaky, I roll with it oh so cheeky, oh please girl no don’t tease me, just got here I’m not leaving.

Come on and rise up jump out of what keeps you down,
get high and rise up fly get your feet of the ground,
come on and rise up rise up rise up rise up rise rise rise
