Voilà! Anggun’s ‘Echo (You And I)’ revealed.Posted: January 29, 2012
Let’s review the facts: Composed by France’s top songwriting duo, produced by David Guetta’s collaborator, styled by Jean Paul Gaultier, choreographed by Madonna’s people and fronted by Anggun. It seems to me that France is all business this year with their entry Echo (You And I), which has just been unveiled in Cannes in its entirety and is creating quite a stir across the Eurovision blogosphere and on Twitter.
I love it. The song is really special and its got an undefinable something that makes you stop and take notice. I honestly could not stop smiling as I listened to it for the first time. It’s artlessly sophisticated, wonderfully catchy without being cheesy and that whistle riff is just infectious! It’s also got a light, breezy, almost idyllic sound that has ‘Summer Hit’ written all over it. And it seems I’m not the only one who’s feeling it, as the general reaction on Twitter towards Echo (You And I) has been most encouraging and very positive.
