downloadEurovision 2016 is almost upon us and as the countries begin to reveal their entries let’s start giving them the once-over. The Denmark song is called “Soldiers Of Love” and is performed by Lighthouse X.

ARTIST

Lighthouse X are a boyband with members Søren Bregendal, Johannes Nymark & Martin Skriver who I like to describe as a Danish version of Blue without Simon Webbe. I actually watched the live final (yes, my obsession is getting much worse each year) and my favourite was Anja Nissen who came a close second.

SONG

The song is called “Soldiers Of Love”.

Coming Soon…

OPINION

As I said this could be the Danish Blue. The song is pretty upbeat and the boys perform it really well, the lyrics are nice and uplifting and it’s certainly catchy.

PREDICTION

One of my favourites so far this year and unlike last year I’m sure these guys will qualify for the final with perhaps being near the top of the left hand side of the board in the final.

LYRICS

“Tell me why we always fuel the fire
Why we tend to close our eyes
What’s the reason that we keep on hiding?
We can make it if we try

I don’t know why we don’t care
There’s nothing to fear when I know you are there
So let’s not wait for someone else
To make it right, make it right

Take my hand and never let go
Side by side we walk an open road
Unbreakable with hope in our hearts
Step by step we’ll make a new start

Let’s be soldiers of love, soldiers of love
Soldiers of love for life
Take my hand and never let go
Never let go and let’s be soldiers of love

What’s the meaning of a world on fire?
And a heart without a soul
I believe that we can shine a light on
What we already ought to know

So let’s not wait for someone else
To make it right, make it right

Take my hand and never let go
Side by side we walk an open road
Unbreakable with hope in our hearts
Step by step we’ll make a new start

Let’s be soldiers of love, soldiers of love
Soldiers of love for life
Take my hand and never let go
Never let go and let’s be soldiers of love

Unbreakable, don’t let it go
It’s an open road, time to let it show
Invincible, gonna climb the wall

Take my hand and never let go
Never let go

Take my hand and never let go
Side by side we walk an open road
Unbreakable with hope in our hearts
Step by step we’ll make a new start (Make a new start)

Let’s be soldiers of love, soldiers of love
Soldiers of love for life
Take my hand and never let go
Never let go and let’s be soldiers of love”

Good luck boys!

Let me know your thoughts and keep me from going Eurovision mad!
