Montenegro: Rambo Amadeus releases “Euro Neuro”
When it was announced that Montenegro would be returning to the Eurovision stage for the first time since 2009, tongues started wagging about who would be representing the country in their fourth attempt at ESC glory. When the act was confirmed as veteran performer Rambo Amadeus, many Eurovision traditionalists didn’t know what to think of the man who has been described as the former Yugoslav republic’s answer to Frank Zappa. Well, Rambo’s song “Euro Neuro” was finally released today, and I think people still are unsure of how to respond to it!
You see, this is where the logical, rational, Eurovision pundit in me says “Sam, you know this has a snowball’s chance in Hades’s microwave of qualifying. You can’t sing to it, he has no other Balkan voting block members in his Semi, and Montenegro has never qualified for a Final as an independent nation”. The gleeful, impulsive, impish part of me, however, is giggling and bopping my head to this wonderful madcap insanity, and can’t wait to see what the Montenegrin Captain Beeheart will do on stage in Baku.
“Euro Neuro”, indeed.
