ARGENTINA V BOSNIA AND HERZEGOVINA

Poncho — ‘Music Don’t Stop'
“I have a feeling this song may have been made using an old computer and a synthesizer. It's a slice of late 70s/early 80s electro, with an amazingly awful music video that looks like a shonky fan made effort. The song starts off interestingly enough with a promising verse that has electro snaps and crackles and trusty laser effect sounds aplenty, but the chorus is a bit of a let down if not an unenjoyable experience overall. Unfortunately by about the three and a half minute mark (the optimum length of any song – as you well know) Poncho seem to have run out of ideas completely as the song ambles on and finally reaches a point where the music does, in fact, stop.”
Dino Merlin — ‘Love In Rewind’
“In the absence of a proper pop chart in Bosnia & Herzegovina some tactical thinking that would have made Arséne Wenger proud was required in order to determine the nation’s most popular song and this appears to still be it. In football it was once said you can’t win anything with kids; well you certainly won’t win Eurovison 2011 with an old Bosnian chap singing about “the life story of middle aged people” (although this did finish in a quite respectable sixth place). It's your typical Eurovision friendly folk-pop melting pot with Dino just looking very happy to be alive, and who could begrudge him that."
