I actually quite like this song, it's better than some of the crap we've submitted in previous years.

It's definitely an improvement on our more recent offerings. I think the selection committee are finally realising that they need to pick songs that could be in the charts across Europe, as opposed to focusing on the traditional 'Eurovision' sound.

Doubt we'll get higher than usual though - just having 'United Kingdom' attached to it instantly results in -500 points, regardless of the song quality or artist.

This.
The song is one of the strongest we've had for a while, but we are hated in Europe now even more than before. And I can hardly blame them. So expect a few points from Ireland (maybe) and someone random like Macedonia, who might give us 3. Apart from that, we're toast.

Don't forget Malta, or anywhere else with a large ex-pat community :awesome:

Not a Eurovision song. It's rather boring, not fun and doesn't go anywhere. I feel like it's a bit of generic one-hit-wonder type song, although it's not catchy enough for that.

It's in the same vein as a number of the latest winners. Eurovision is not trash anymore.

*sigh*

I don't understand why the UK keeps submitting the same **** when it does badly. The lyrics in this song are completely unrelatable to touch any heart strings (deep sea diving??), it isn't catchy or memorable, there's no legendary instrumental like epic sax guy, there aren't any memorable eccentricities in the music video and I doubt there will be in the live show.

Plus, everyone hates the UK.

It'll come very near the bottom.

Well it should be!

And actually this is too dull and doesn't have the punch is my point.

I think I've listened to it at least 10 times in the last three days... I freaking love it

Having thought about it, I think that the attraction for me is the sentiment.

I can see that. The massage is very on brand for Eurovision, the delivery just isn’t imo. And as I say, it’s quite bland.

Is it?
Well I disagree with that last point, but that's just personal taste tied to our experiences and ideas as people.

Yes.
As I said, the song just doesn't feel like it goes anywhere, the energy is kinda flat throughout. Also I imagine the staging will be bland.

I like this song, definitely the best in several years, it'll probably get top half of the right side, similar to that of 2014 and 2017. However I don't see this being a song that can really compete for a high placement in the modern era of eurovision.
