Eurovision Winner: It has to be Italy!

I know there are still two months to go and acts that usually win or come close to winning like Sweden, Russia and Armenia haven't even yet released their entries, but I really cannot imagine anyone coming up with a better track than Francesco Gabbani's Occidentali's Karma.

It really is almost the perfect Eurovision song and just grabs you after a couple of plays. Initially you think What the... and wonder what on earth the gorilla is doing but, eventually, trust me, you'll get it.

Quite simply. Italy wins this year.


It is actually better live although the official recorded version is still pretty good. I can imagine the audience shouting out with this at the key moments too.

Here, courtesy of Eurovisionworld.com, is a translation too.

Westerners' Karma

To be or to have to be
Hamlet's doubt
As current as the Neolithic man

Get comfy in your 2x3 cage
Highbrows in caf├ęs
Internet experts

Honorary members of the selfie-addicted anonymous
Cleverness is out of fashion
Easy answers
Pointless dilemmas

AAA grand endings wanted
hoped for
Whatever happens, panta rhei*
And singing in the rain

Nirvana lessons
There's Buddha in single line
recreation time for everyone, a moment of glory

The crowd is shouting a mantra
Evolution stumbles
The naked ape is dancing
Westerners' karma
Westerners' karma
The naked ape is dancing
Westerners' karma

Drops of Chanel are pouring
On aseptic bodies
Save yourself from the smell of your own kind
All know-all with the web
The people's cocaine
The poor's opiate

AAA virtual humanity wanted
Sex appeal
Whatever happens, panta rhei*
And singing in the rain

Nirvana lessons
There's Buddha in single line
recreation time for everyone, a moment of glory
The crowd is shouting a mantra
Evolution stumbles
The naked ape is dancing
Westerners' karma
Westerners' karma

The naked ape is dancing

Westerners' karma




When life is distracted men drop

Westerners' karma

Westerners' karma

The ape gets back on its feet

Namaste, go!
