Welcome to the Persephone ESC Countdown. We have now made it to France and Georgia.
The French tenor Amaury Vassili, whose first album went to double platinum in France, will be performing his song, “Sognu,” in Corsican. In the English translation, the song is called “I Would Dream About Her.” And you might have guessed it, it’s about a broken heart. Here are the first lines and the video.
Dream of her lips, of her soft and pure voice
Of a memory forever embraced, of this night, right by your side!
I dream, but still I complain, my heart indifferent to the like that awaits me tomorrow.
I am knelt down in front of the ocean.
I was ready to share the world with you
But you are no longer here
I dream of winning
Even far way, your soul is near me
Inside my dreams.
The band Eldrine will be performing “One More Day” and represent Georgia. No bubblegum pop this time – but still about love. In a way.
