#ESC 2014: POLLAPÖNK FOR ICELAND

The Icelandic national final Söngvakeppnin 2014 didn't promise much from the beginning - having only one song in the line up I liked in the end, Amor - and finishing having the two most annoying ones in the superfinal. We will be treated to some Icelandic humor in Copenhagen when Pollapönk offers us some colorful Enga fordóma. Surely rather entertaining to watch, but I'm pretty sure this will never end up in any of my playlists. Shame. Good luck anyways. Europe hasn't been very friendly to humor acts in the past and I doubt they will change now. Apparently the song has political undertunes and even mocks certain mr Putin, but as I haven't seen the lyrics translated anywhere can't be sure about that and if there's a message, it makes it sound a bit better - but if the message is lost in translation, it's pointless for the voters, or Europeans.
Oh, Sigríður Eyrún Friðriksdóttir came second with Lífið kviknar á ný... It isn't any better than the winner really.

It's not a comedy song, they're just very colorful.
