Charley says SONG! Femme Fatale – Décadence

May 29, 2010

While I definitely have some favourites in tonight’s Eurovision final, there seems to be a lack of proper pop beats among the finalists.

Therefor, let’s have a look back on what could have been a Belgian entry. Big Brother superstar Betty Owczarek had previously sung under her own name and as Biba Binoche, but for Eurosong 2008 she reinvented herself as Femme Fatale.

Dark and dirty pop anthem ‘Décadence‘ was written especially for Betty by Gerard James Borg and Mik Tanczos. Having been responsible for ‘7th Wonder‘, ‘On Again… Off Again‘, ‘Desire‘, ‘Vertigo‘ and ‘Vodka‘, Gerard James Borg is practically Maltese Eurovision royalty.

A final point of interest is that you may recognise one of the shirtless dancers on dog leashes (I bet you’re going to watch that clip now, aren’t you?) as the dancer in Katerine Avgoustakis’ ‘Treat Me Like A Lady‘ video!
