I can't see this doing much at Eurovision. But then I loved Scooch and Electro Velvet so what the hell do I know?!
I thought Molly was good and that big anthemic power ballad thing we used to do so well.
Sadly Eurovision did not agree with me! We should have sent the Scott Mills dance remix.
Children of the Universe was I think the best song we've sent in years and I had high hopes for it. Sadly it didn't really translate on the night. It was the closest we have come to something as amazing as Dame Frances Ruffelle's Lonely Symphony in a long time.
It was a strange song. My friend, watching it with me, said 5 seconds in 'this sounds like FKA Twigs', 2 minutes in 'so they've gone for a pop ballad' and by the end 'ok, that went really indie-pop, what the f**k is going on?' Had that been sung by a charismatic performer, it would have been such a hot mess everyone would have voted for it purely because it was a refreshing change and memorable at the end of the night. As it was, it just came across as a muddle, and Molly is more responsible for that than anyone.
