Eurovision Song Contest 2017: Australia – “Don’t Come Easy” By Isaiah

Eurovision Song Contest 2017: Australia -

Eurovision 2017 – Australia

The Australia song is called “Don’t Come Easy” and performed by Isaiah.

ARTIST

With a population of only 5000 people, Moama, just outside of Melbourne Australia, is hardly the kind of place you’d expect to find a superstar. Well, no one told Isaiah that. In just two years, the talented teen has transformed from a small town singer with big dreams, to one of Australia’s most promising artists. Along the way he’s won The X Factor Australia and released a debut single, It’s Gotta Be You, that charted all over the world and notched up millions of international streams. All that at just 17 years of age.

SONG

Don’t Come Easy is composed and written by DNA (David Musumeci & Anthony Egizii) and Michael Angelo. Australian songwriters David Musumeci and Anthony Egizii signed a music publishing deal with EMI Music Publishing in 2011 and an exclusive production deal with Sony Music for the world in 2012 – they have achieved amazing success with 7 number 1 ARIA singles in Australia with over 7 million units sold as writer-producers. DNA also secured the debut winner’s singles from The X Factor Series for five years running with Isaiah’s single, It’s Gotta Be You, reaching #1 on Australian iTunes on release, awarded Platinum status in Sweden and over 44 million streams worldwide on Spotify.

DNA wrote and produced Sound Of Silence, performed by Dami Im at the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest which saw Australia take second place. DNA collected the prestigious Marcel Bezençon Composer Award in 2016. DNA worked with Grammy nominated Michael Angelo (Sam Smith, Hilary Duff, Tove Lo) on Don’t Come Easy.

OPINION

He’s got a hint of a Sam Smith voice and he delivers the song well. I would have liked to have seen an up-tempo song from Australia this year and I’m not sure if I like this so much just yet – it just seems pretty average.

PREDICTION

If this was any other country then I think it would struggle to qualify but since it’s Australia I think they will qualify but it certainly won’t perform as well as the previous two years.

LYRICS

‘I can tell by your eyes you want more than this
But can we be much more beyond these sheets
No I don’t
Don’t wanna mess with your head
But my love
It’s hard to love again

It don’t come easy
And it don’t come cheap
Been burned too many times
To love easily
Don’t mistake me
My love runs deep
But it don’t come easy
It don’t come cheap
No not with me

I used to move in fast to erase my past
But it never works no it never lasts no
In my mind
I gotta get things right
Take it slow
Before I jump this time

No it don’t come easy
No it don’t come cheap
Been burned too many times
To love easily
Don’t mistake me
My love runs deep
But it don’t come easy
It don’t come cheap
No not with me

And if you think
I’ve got a heart of stone
You couldn’t be more wrong
Ooh
You might think
I’ve been afraid too long
Afraid of love

But it don’t come easy
Been burned too many times
To love easily
Don’t mistake me
My love runs deep
But it don’t come easy
It don’t come cheap
No not with me
Ooh
No not with me
Ooh
Don’t mistake me
My love runs deep
But it don’t come easy
It don’t come cheap
No not with me’

  2. Thanks for sharing this one. Coming from Australia as I do I am interested in our entrant but I hadn’t seen this video. I had heard he was our selection for Eurovision this year although I didn’t watch X factor. I don’t go much on the song but he has a great voice and I agree it’s a bit like Sam Smith. He has great eyebrows and hair as well as a great voice, but I’m not sure that will be enough.
