Today on the cutting table is Hungary, with the song Wars For Nothing by Boggie. Boggie, a Hungarian singer-songwriter, seems accustomed to writing songs about various issues, ranging from the retouching of models in the media to, apparently, world peace.
Lyrically, the song is essentially a plea to…somebody, asking for wars to end and for the world to be in peace. It’s a sombre, solemn song, sung in Boggie’s lilting tones to the tune of an acoustic guitar.
Rory: Hungary is a real grower on me! I really do appreciate her idea of singing of peace – should they get everything, we might be looking at a possible dark horse here! 10/12.
Reece: I’ve gone off this song quite a bit – it’s just too slow and dull, and I can see people forgetting about it. The juries may appreciate it more, so a possible qualifier – 6/12.
Lewis: This song is a good bit of karma from when Aimee didn’t win Eurosong back in 2013. The song has such a lovely messages and all of the gimmicks we’ve been seeing in other acts are simply not a part of this performance. Although it’ll be favoured more by the juries, it will still garner a good heap of votes! 8/12
Lauren: Ah, this is a nice song. Call me a tree-hugging, peace-loving hippie if you will, but I really adore the message of this song, a plea to end all wars and stop sending the poor to fight them. On the downside, it’s very likely due to the low-key instrumental that it may get lost in the sea of all the other guitar-laden Eurovision songs. 10/12.
