Germany couldn't afford Ed Sheeran then. :lol:

It's pleasant enough but on first listen i kept thinking of Lego house. It's a bit too Ed Sheeran for my liking. :oops:

I know, but I thought it was ok to use it when I don't like a single thing about it. Sorry :( I try to use it less, hope I can do that

I can see Germany possibly in the top 10 this year but it's way too similar to Lego house for me to fully appreciate this song.

I dislike it heavily as well.

Due to his personal story, they try to make the entry authentic and give it some substance but it's rather dull and boring.
I hate the whole production of the song. It sounds so average and uninspired. The German broadcaster is not able to make interesting changes or built-ups. The chorus just pops in every time and it sounds so amateurish.
Just the ending of the song - when the drums kick in - are alright, in my opinion.
Also, Michael doesn't have a good stage presence. He kinda looks exhausted on stage and it's not helping that he is just standing there with his eyes closed.
Furthermore, his voice is shaky and whiny to some extent. He really needs vocal coaching. In May, all notes have to be perfect...otherwise, I think that Germany will end up bottom 5 in the televoting once again.

I've only heard this song once so far and I think it's boring. I don't deny that it might be a grower, but the problem with growers at the ESC is that there's no time for a song to grow on the audience - the artists have one chance that consists of three minutes (at the maximum) and if the audience is bored by the song after that one chance then it's no use that the song is a grower, because what counts is the first impression.

Sounds like a song James Arthur would release. Not a big fan on the first listen, but it's definitely not bad.

I actually think this will do alright. It's emotional, sentimental and has a memorable chorus.

It's emotional, breathless, real

I guess ESC memes don't really work here, hoping for someone to get it lol

The song is boring comparing to the other country’s. Can‘t imagine he reaches the Top 10 on the ESC.

In this ''heartfelt'' section of this year's Eurovision he has a lot of competition: Portugal, Lithuania, Ireland (if they pass through the SF stage). It also shares a certain audience with Italy and France.

It will be difficult to stand out (it needs a good running order, i guess) but it will do better than the recent DE entries :lol:
