Eurovision Song Contest 2012 entry 2-13

Turkey has been a powerhouse in recent years. Can Bonomo's Love Me Back is totally not from their traditional mold.

If you think this sounds like klezmer, you aren't mistaken. Bonomo is from Turkey's Jewish minority, and he blends pop, Turkish folk music and Jewish music like a master. The lyrics are a bit... odd. But it's a bundle of fun.

And we get a music video! Remember that bit about blending? Well, there's imagery from the lyrics. All that wacky boat stuff. There's all sorts of musicians performing together. There's costumes and dancers.

Yeah, I like this one. I don't expect it to win, but I like it.
