2013 Top 20: 19- You have to remember you cannot hide

 My Body Has Legs- 30 Days and 30 Nights

I said in the previous post that I don't usually like electro music. Maybe that's not strictly true...

At number 19, it's the wonderful (and rather attractive) Swiss boys Martin and Benedikt from My Body Has Legs. Any Eurovision fan worth their reputation will remember them from last year's SRF musical free-for-all, in which their song Flagstaff Paradise was the 500 carat diamond in a sea of cubic zirconia. But as is all too often the way with Eurovision national finals, it didn't get a look in. Fast forward to 2013 and they're back with the excellent 30 Days and 30 Nights, which is every bit as catchy and contemporary as Flagstaff Paradise, and arguably an even better choice for Eurovision. Alas, it isn't to be, and Switzerland will once again probably struggle to get through the semi final... But whatever. What's Eurovision's loss is our gain, and hopefully we'll be hearing a lot more from these guys in the very near future.
