Our 'normal' jury results for Switzerland - Stones v Compass
Ok this week our 'normal' jury made up of non-fandoms turned their attention to Switzerland's national final and the two favourites with the bookes: Zibbs with 'Stones' vs Alejandro with 'Compass'.
And the winner was....
Comments from our jury members on both songs below:
She has a better and more unique voice and the lyrics are quite cool actually. Her lyrics are a bit more political and thought out. I enjoy.
It sounds like a slowed down hard knock life. I dont get it... and no energy.
Admirably political, and I like what she’s saying, but the lyrics read like they’re written by an angsty high school poet
Stones has sass.
It' quite edgy.
Stones is LOADS better. It’s a bit hozier
Stones was the stronger song, and even though I got a Jesse J vibe from her I quite enjoyed the tune and the lyrics.
I don't mind Stones but it makes Meghan Trainor seem like Aretha Franklin
Stones by a pretty clear margin for me
Love this tune and it's what I imagine "modern eurovision" should be. Chorus is very catchy and think it would be amazing live. She also has some sort of activist message in there somewhere and I like that it's not being forced down your throat
More catchy tune cause it's more poppy.
Compass has a good hook, but it sounds like a poor man’s Justin Bieber rip off. Fluffier than a duckling
The song is meant to be about navigation but the song is all over the place.
Compass was unimpressive. The music sounds like everything released in the past twelve months and the singer sounds like one of the One Direction kids trying to go solo.
Justin Bieber Sorry 2.0 but not as good
It sounds like something somebody with a career might put out in a quiet month. He doesn't have a career. But it's better that Stones.
First of all, he is going to be sued by Justin Bieber cause that song is a straight wrip off of a bieber song
Lyrics are awful- it's like a song that would play in the background of the Summer Bay diner - as Irene is giving some life advice to an addled teen. It's a shit song
