Greta Salóme: Seven Nation Army

Posted by eurovision on top on October 20, 2016 at 8:40 AM Comments comments (0)

Greta Salóme received a challenge from her fans on social media last month to do something different than what she would normally do, where only her voice and violin were permitted. She was challenged to make her version of the song Seven Nation Army by The White Stripes.


 

Greta rose to the challenge and went an untraditional route with the arrangement of her version of the song by using the violin for drums, chords, and all other instruments. She even transformed a part of the song into rap, which is very unusual for her as a singer.


"Seven Nation Army" is a song by American rock duo The White Stripes. It was released as the lead single from their fourth studio album, Elephant, on March 7, 2003. This song peaked the number 1 in the US Billboard Modern Rock Tracks and selled around 250 000 copies in the UK!


Row, a single by Great, is actually in the chart of Eurovision On Top. Seven Nation Army is also available for voting.

Yohanna covers Tommy Seebach

Jóhanna Guðrún just released the song Undir Stjörnubjörtum Himni. It is no more than the ESC entry of danish Tommy Seebach from 1993.


As Johanna said "I was actually born in Denmark in 1990 so this song has a great meaning to me and my family. This song is about a parent putting their child to sleep and together they drift off together in a dream."


The song is recorded in Icelandic.

2. Will it finally be this time? - Iceland's choice


Iceland still is the scandinavian country without a victory in the contest. After Finland's victory in 2006 the small island tries to make it too.

There were already some years were Iceland have been close to it. But also other years.

This year the artis will be Greta Salome and her performance looks like a mix out of Loreen and Mans. Perhaps it will help to make it this time.
