by Christopher Smith

The Romanian song is called “On A Sunday and is performed by Ester Peony.

ARTIST:

Ester Alexandra Crețu, known professionally as Ester Peony (formerly only Ester), is a Romanian singer and songwriter. She will represent Romania in the Eurovision Song Contest 2019 with the song “On a Sunday”, after winning the selection show Selecția Națională 2019.

She released her debut single “Cuminte de Crăciun” in 2014 and her debut EP “Dig It” in 2018, and cites Delia, Celine Dion, Whitney Houston, Cher, Queen, Michael Jackson and Ariana Grande as some of her musical inspirations. She is currently working on her debut album which is scheduled for release later this year.

“On A Sunday” is co-written by her and her boyfriend Alexandru Șerbu, who also produces the song.

OPINION:

“On A Sunday” begins hauntingly and continues with Ester’s heartfelt vocals, before opening up with a pumping groove melody – make sure you watch the video, the song makes more sense that way!

PREDICTION:

This is another one I hope will qualify, it’s inoffensive and well produced, although not made of winning ingredients, it could end up as midway fare.

LYRICS:

“You left me
On a Sunday
And I still remember
That day in September

Yeah you left me
On a Sunday
Made sure there’s no way
To forget that day

Say hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
Loving you is a hard price to pay
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey

Watching the smoke
Rise from the ashtray
Filling the room with pain
It’s still in my veins

Can’t feel at home
Cuz it’s so lonely
So cold and so grey
Since you left that day
You know, you know

Even if the sun rises and the world moves on everyday
Hey, hey, hey
I will always be waiting for you to come back home to me
To me, to me, to me hey

Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
Loving you is a hard price to pay
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey

Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
Loving you is a hard price to pay
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey

Wake me up
From this nightmare
Is this even true
Am I without you

Love’s not fair
Oh, I have learned that
Just never knew, that
I’ll be losing you
You know, you know

Even if the sun rises and the world moves on everyday
Hey, hey, hey
I will always be waiting for you to come back home to me
To me, to me, to me hey

Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
Loving you is a hard price to pay
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey
Loving you is a hard price to pay”
