Remember “The Social Network Song Oh Oh-Uh-Oh Oh,” San Marino’s Eurovision 2012 entry? The one Eurovision legend Ralph Siegel composed and poor Valentina Monetta had to sing? You know, the one that was supposed to be called “Facebook Uh, Oh, Uh?”
Well, San Marino and Siegel decided that Monetta was such a trooper for stepping in to perform “The Social Network Song Oh Oh-Uh-Oh Oh” that they decided to give her another chance to grace the Eurovision stage, only this time with a song that isn’t completely embarrassing! Here is “Crisalide.”
I mean, it’s fine. It’s completely old-fashioned, but it gives Monetta a serious song that suits her voice and her style of music much better. After chugging along as a ballad for most of the song, “Crisalide” suddenly changes tempos and becomes a disco song to make it… interesting, I guess? Worked for Donny Montell last year.
So, what’s worse, being memorably bad or not being memorable at all? I still despise “The Social Network Song Oh Oh-Uh-Oh Oh,” but it’s one of those songs that goes down in the annals of Eurovision history. The only notable thing about “Crisalide” is the history of the people involved in it, and that’s not enough to make it memorable.
