I'm happy Shakira didn't get "Move Your Body;" Sia slayed it in a way Shakira wouldn't have been able to.
"Unpredictable" is good, but it didn't have anything that made me want to revisit it. "The Cure" is great! I think Lady Gaga's voice never really gets the credit it deserves, but her vocals are the song's best selling point.
"Beautiful Ones" is the best song Hurts has released since "Wonderful Life". The music video is my favourite of the year. "Feels" was a trop-pop bop that should have had more US success than it got.
"Story of a Heart" is good, but Steps had better this year alone, and I don't mean "Dancing with a Broken Heart," a song title Delta did a far better job with.
I just heard "Do It" from heppolo's chart, and it's a shame I've missed it all year. I'm listening to "Ready to Go" now, and thinking similarly. I think I'd heard such poor reviews of their latest LP, I didn't think anything there was worth checking out.
Oh my, another "I Feel Alive" fan!
The song was my favourite ESC entry this year, too! It deserved so much more!
