To my dismay, Belgium was out from the second semi final. They’ve presented an entry full of musical excellence. Each of the singer in the group is vocally highly talented. The song itself is anything but cliche, at the same time not so that alternative, having a very beautiful and interesting melody. Pure vocal harmony is very rare in Eurovision and the Belgians did so amazingly well this time. And they dance well too. The whole entry is just so amazingly stylish. It is my absolute favourite in the last five years, I like it even better than the 2009 Estonian entry and the 2010 Romanian entry. But it was out. Below is the official MV of my Eurovision 2011 winner: The Belgian Witloof Bay: With Love Baby Please notice there is no music instrument used in the recording. Someone in the band simulated all the drum beats with his voice:
The entry from Denmark has offered some consolation to the loss of Belgians. Well the main theme melody of the Denmark song “New Tomorrow” was created by some Chinese song writers about 20 years ago. To me, the song “New Tomorrow” is “Back to Motherland”. The original Chinese song’s title, could be translated as “Loving a Beauty More Than Loving the Country”. It was such a popular song in China many years ago, that almost every KTV in China played it every day. The first video below is the official MV. Please pay attention to the theme appearing at 1:59 and 3:59:
Below is another MV made by fans of this “Loving a Beauty More Than Loving the Country” song. The film in this MV was an amazing ’90 Hong Kong action flick, directed by Tsui Hark, starring Brigit Lin and Jet Lee. In the good old days of 1990s, people in Hong Kong have really created great films. Miles and miles better than those later made by Zhang Yimou and co.
The main theme in the Denmark song “New Tomorrow” can be heard from 2:06 on and 4:06 on in the following music video:
