Eurovision Song Contest 2017: Moldova – “Hey, Mamma!” By SunStroke Project

Sunstroke Project

Eurovision 2017 – Moldova

The Moldova song is called “Hey, Mamma!” and performed by SunStroke Project.

ARTIST

SunStroke Project is a trio composed of Sergei Yalovitsky (vocals), Anton Ragoza (violinist and composer) and Sergey Stepanov (saxophonist). The group have participated in the Moldovan national selection several times over the years. In 2010 they won the selection and represented Moldova in the Eurovision Song Contest in Oslo with the song Run Away along side vocalist Olia Tira.

Following their appearance at the Eurovision Song Contest, Sergey Stepanov’s saxophone solo went viral on Youtube. The video, which features his performance on a loop, notched up over 30 million views and spawned several copycat videos and parodies, which have also attracted millions of views.

SONG

‘Hey Mama!’ was chosen by a 50/50 combination of jury and public votes after a close race in the national final selection.

OPINION

It’s a bouncy one and it’s a nice change from a ballad. I think this would be a welcome addition to the contest – especially when the sax kicks in. They have a great image and with some great staging this could get everyone dancing.

PREDICTION

This will qualify as the grand final needs it! I can see it picking up regular points and will hover at the bottom of the left hand side of the leader board.

LYRICS

‘Hey, hey you
You won’t ever hide what you think of me
I see your clue
No, you worry about me, don’t need to be

Hey, hey you
It’s a girl and maybe she’ll sleep at home
But I steal her alone

And I say mamma, mamma, don’t be so down
I’m not that defendant boy
Mamma, mamma, don’t be so down
All the kids going round and round

Mamma, mamma, don’t be so mad
If you knew me you’d be surprised
Mamma, mamma, don’t be so mad
(She’ll be back home till sunrise)

Like the sun in the sea
She will disappear tonight with me
I know we’re not anymore
Do what other cats did before

Hey, hey you (Hey you)
It’s a girl and maybe she’ll sleep at home
But I steal her alone

And I say mamma, mamma, don’t be so down
I’m not that defendent boy
Mamma, mamma, don’t be so down
All the kids going round and round

Mamma, mamma, don’t be so mad
If you knew me you’d be surprised
Mamma, mamma, don’t be so mad
(She’ll be back home till sunrise)

(Mamma, mamma, ma…)
(Mamma, mamma, ma…) Oh, mamma, mamma, ma…
(Mamma, mamma, ma…)
(Mamma, mamma, mamma)

(Mamma, mamma, ma…)
(Mamma, mamma, ma…) Oh, mamma, mamma, ma…
(Mamma, mamma, ma…)
(Mamma, mamma)

And I say mamma, mamma, don’t be so down
I’m not that defendent boy
Mamma, mamma, don’t be so down
All the kids going round and round

Mamma, mamma, don’t be so mad
If you knew me you’d be surprised
Mamma, mamma, don’t be so mad
She’ll be back home till sunrise

Hey mamma, hey mamma, hey mamma ma…
Hey mamma, hey mamma, hey mamma ma…
Hey mamma, hey mamma, hey mamma ma…
Hey mamma, hey mamma (Hey bababa…)

Hey mamma, hey mamma, hey mamma ma…
Hey mamma, hey mamma, hey mamma ma…
Hey mamma ma…’
