After last year’s quite mad “Hora Din Moldova,” the people of Moldova decided to stick with the dance music. Rather than going with a pseudo-traditional number, though, they went with “Run Away” by Sun Stroke Project and Olia Tira:
Honestly, at first, “Run Away” struck me as one of those generic Euro-pop dance numbers that always seem to fill up some space during the Eurovision Song Contest. Then that saxophone riff kicks in, and suddenly, I am totally okay with this song. Of course, the sheer goofiness of the saxophone player probably helps too.
And how about those turntables he and the violin player got to spin around on? They so need to make sure those make it to Oslo.
