Eurovision Song Contest 2012 entry 1-2

Iceland's Greta Salóme & Jónsi bring us Never Forget as the second entry.

I watched the Icelandic selection contest, and this wasn't my favorite entry. Greta & Jónsi are good enough singers, and the song was a pretty standard (if a touch driven) ballad.

In Icelandic. The Icelandic selection rules require all songs to be sung in Icelandic. After a winner is chosen, the song may be translated into and sung in some other language (read "English") for Eurovision.

The video is kind of dark and creepy. The new English lyrics are decent, if a bit cryptic. Again, I kind of like this one.
