Song: La mia città
Artist: Emma Marrone
So instead of hosting San Remo Festival like the past 3 years to select their artist, RAI decided to just internally select both song and artist. It is a pretty good song (as it’s really Ohrwurm-y/catchy and can most likely keep me motivated while running on the track), but part of me feels like the beat sounds really familiar. That is, that someone could take the song, switch up the chords and lyrics, and the feeling would still be the same. Still, I like the amount of power in the refrain, since the lyrics push in iambs and that gets the point through. Even if you don’t understand the lyrics, you can still feel the song.
