Lituania a country that have always brought to us, some homegrown interesting Eurovision entries in the past few years.
As well as so often as is the case for Malmo 2013 a self penned tune by Andrius Pojavis. I actually like 'Something' -these pidgin engliska songs, with
with a stong melody. However following on from the fantastic 'Love is Blind'from 2012 I through this song was a bit of a downgrade for
Lituania, I like the artist, yet the song finished up in the 2013 pile I called
"Great tune, but it has'nt got a chance to qualify" ( ...and not a small pile for this years ESC)
If you took a look at Andrius Pojavis's National Final performance of 'Something'it was rather bad, the top-hat did not help at all
the eye-brows did.
Yet during the month's inbetween they re-vamped the song completely for Eurovision and did all the right things..So while I am happy
to see a singer-songwriter in the Grand Final as it's always good to have self-penned stuff. The question is just how do Lituania continue
to qualify each year in the Grand final with such ease and songs that are always good but borderline...
in the past seven years only twice with 'Nomads of the night'and who remembers Le Great 'East European Funk'by InCulto did
Lituania not make it into the Grand Final! A record that cannot be equaled by their baltic cousins Estonia or Latvia. I guess we can
call it the 'Luck of the Lit's'
