Roman Lob won a German Eurosivion song selection process (similar to A Song For Europe) and so the Germans like him. The song Standing Still has already reached number 3 in the German charts, which is pretty impressive. No doubt the neighbouring countries to Germany will have already heard of this man, and the song will probably already receiving airplay on the radios in countries such as Switzerland, Austria, Hungary, Czech Republic, Poland and so on.....
Standing Still is ANOTHER ballad, but it's different. One, it's by a man, Two, it's not competing for the loudest note, Three, it's a little more deep than others, and Four, it's completely in English. Roman Lob follows on well from Lena, as just another young artist with real talent, who can compete on the music stage. Personally, I really enjoy this song. As mentioned in an earlier post, I have a Eurovision 2012 playlist with all the songs from this year on, but this song quickly made the leap on to a regular playlist, and I wouldn't usually think of this as a Eurovision song. But there is it's flaw...it's not really a Eurovision song. And probably, because I am English and this song is very western, that's why I like it so very much.
Germany have done well in the last 2 years with Lena, so let's not mention anything before that. I'm hoping for a top half of the table finish for Roman Lob, so Good Luck to him in Baku!
Oh and one more thing... PHWOAR.
