Apparently no one noticed this…?

(Sorry for the really late post. I got distracted from Eurovision due to classes lately. Ah, the life of a uni student…)

Every year someone always accuses [insert ESC entry here] for ripping off some other song because they sound similar. In this case, the main accusations were that all the countries that sent dance entries copied Sweden’s winning entry in 2012. Still, just because they are the same genre doesn’t mean they plagiarized. In fact, Thomas G:Son, the composer of “Euphoria,” stated:

“When you would look at the composition in a wavetable, you would see that 10,000 pop songs have similar courses.”

Despite reading all the YouTube flame wars and plagiarism accusations, I was surprised to see that no one mentioned something that could have been really obvious: Loreen’s entry looked like a modern representation of Bernini’s sculpture “The Ecstasy of St. Teresa.”

See anything yet?

Next time I’ll be analyzing this in detail.
