Eurovision 2017 – Greece

The Greece song is called “This Is Love” and performed by Demy.

ARTIST

A gifted young musician, singer and actress, Demy has gained both national and international acclaim since 2011.

Demy’s love with music started at a very early age, with piano lessons at the young age of five, before she even went to school. Meanwhile, she enrolled for the school choir and also attended music theory and harmony lessons. To this day she continues to take vocal coaching as well as piano lessons.

Demy’s musical influences come from many different kinds of music, of which she distinguishes jazz, soul, rock n’ roll and r’n’b as the most influential. She aims to experiment with every one of her songs and she avoids categorising herself in one particular kind of music.

After her official launch in the music world in 2011, Demy has enjoyed a series of successful collaborations with well-known Greek artists, and has released several singles that gained both national and international acclaim. During the past two years she has started a stage career resulting in leading roles in big scale musical productions.

In her free time, Demy is a diligent Law student.

SONG

Demy says the most interesting things about her song is the powerful music, vibrant and yet charged with emotion, and the inventive stage setting.

OPINION

This started off as an ‘up-tempo ballad’ and I was enjoying it but secretly hoping it would step things up a notch at the chorus. IT DID!

This pretty much ticks all the boxes for me as far as this year’s selection goes.

PREDICTION

This will qualify and it NEEDS to be in the final. It will certainly get the crowd jumping and hopefully pick up a fair few points. Is it a winner? No, it’s a Eurovision banger but I’m not sure it’s Greece’s year.

LYRICS

‘Holding on to what we had can be
so complicated
Could be time to move along
And face it
No more debating
Watched the river running dry
Now it’s time to say goodbye

There’s an echo in my head
There’s a story still unread
And I need you here tonight
Walk away don’t turn around
I will never let you down
I won’t let you see me cry
There’s an echo in my head
There’s a crossroad up ahead
How I want you here
forever and ever
and ever and ever
I’m not giving up

This is love
reaching out for the stars
You and me as one
everywhere
This is love

Holding on to what we had can be
so self destroying
Remember how we laughed and played around
till night
met the morning
Watched the sunset in the sky
There would never be goodbye

There’s an echo in my head
There’s a story still unread
And I need you here tonight
Walk away don’t turn around
I will never let you down
How I want you here
forever and ever
and ever and ever
I’m not giving up

This is love
reaching out for the stars
You and me as one
everywhere
This is love’
