Single Review: Lena – Satellite (Eurovision 2010 Winner)

It is really rare for me to appreciate a Eurovision winner and this one really stood out for me. After last year’s major disappointment, I was absolutely ecstatic about the winning entry this year. Germany’s Lena Meyer-Landrut has won with her fantastic single, ‘Satellite’. ‘Satellite’ is her first national hit which became one of the fastest selling digital songs in her home country. Prior to winning Eurovision, Lena won Germany’s ‘Unser Star Fur Oslo’ – the competition which determined Germany’s representative to the Eurovision Singing Contest. During the course of the talent show, Lena has covered songs from Adele, Kate Nash and Paolo Nutini.

‘Satellite’ – an English song written by American writers Julie Frost and John Gordon is a skimpy jumpy pop song that fits Lena’s bubbly personality. With its interesting drum beats, acoustic guitar riffs, ‘Satellite’ brings all about a track that would absolutely make you smile once you’ve heard it. It’s not the best pop song to win a contest like Eurovision but it captures a massive scale audience that particularly would want to buy this record. The track packs a lot of charm thanks to Lena’s sparkling positive aura that makes the track a lot more likable in more aspects.

And just a quick rant, does she remind you of Lenka? And yes, her debut album sounds a lot like something Lenka would do. Really.
