Introducing 2012: Montenegro!

All the entries for the 2012 contest have been selected and now My Eurovision Diary will introduce them to you!

Entrant: Rambo Amadeus

Antonije Pušić (his real name) was born in Herceg Novi, a town on the Bay of Kotor, which is officially included in the list of the thirty most beautiful bays in the world. As a youth, he won a number of recognitions for his achievements in sports sailing. His songs combine satirical lyrics on the nature of common people and silliness of local politics. He uses a mixture of musical styles including jazz and rock (converging towards drum and bass lately), and self-conscious ironic wit. His stage name itself is made from John Rambo and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Known also as a “charming king of jovial pop”, his concerts are never mere repetitions of recorded songs, but a mixture of musical improvisation and humor exploiting all aspects of human nature in a crude manner. Some fans compare his style and career path with those of Frank Zappa or Captain Beefheart.

Entry: ‘Euro Neuro

Euro Neuro was internally selected by RTCG as well as Rambo.

According to Rambo, the song  is about a small guy, rural characters, who meet with rigorously European standard’s, attitudes and ambivalence in the relation to them.

Tomorrow we will introduce the Icelandic entry, note that the entries will be introduced according to the running order!


One comment on “Introducing 2012: Montenegro!

  1. I really like your introductions. 🙂

    Montenegro 2012 is so far off the musical radar of most ESC fans that “Euro neuro” is among the most heavily criticized entries this year. However, if you keep an open mind and listen attentively, it is not a bad effort. The instrumentation is fine, adding a contemporary and regional sound at the same time. Moreover, the lyrics are ambiguous which is always a good thing, at least in my book. If you happen to be inclined towards thinking about important stuff, these lyrics might make you think, and personally I prefer them to just another average boy meets girl or boy leaves girl number. Considering all this, Montenegro is far from being anywhere near the worst stuff this year. However, this is an edgy one, and thus I fear for the worst. 7/12 and 22nd place on my pre-rehearsals list.
