There’s a hook to the start of the chorus here which just sticks to me. “I’ve been shattered into pieces, I’ve been drinking and I’m sleepless” – with the music behind it, it just presents a good hook to this song. Throw in a good old oh-oh-oh and you just know you get a pretty classic Eurovision midtempo/ballad effort. I like this!
