BIRTHDAY: Natalia Barbu from Moldova is 40 today
Every song will have at least one fan. But it’s obvious that some songs have more fans than others. We only hear about the ones people really love. Or the ones people really don’t love.
In that middle ground is a massive group of songs. It’s clear when they take to the stage that they’re not going to win. But they won’t come last either. The song from today’s birthday girl Natalia Barbu falls into this middling category. She came tenth in her semi-final, and then tenth in the Grand Final. She got a scattering of points from all over Europe. Maybe everyone really wants to fight.
