He did it again: just as in 2018, Dutch artist Koonian managed to unite all 41 Eurovision 2019 song titles in one track, creating a perfect anthem in anticipation of this year’s contest in Tel Aviv!
Last year, Dutch website Eurostory challenged singer Koonian to include every Eurovision song title in one track, which resulted in the catchy What does it all mean? For the 2019 edition, Eurostory returned to Koonian with the same question: can you incorporate every song title in your lyrics?
The anwser is: yes, he can! And actually within three minutes, as in good Eurovision tradition.
The outcome is I don’t speak your language, a celebratory anthem for Eurovision 2019! Although we may not understand each other’s language, music is a universal language, ultimately expressed by our shared love for Eurovision.
Enjoy I don’t speak your language:
