La Teva Decisió (Get A Life)

Album: Eurovision Song Contest 2009 (2009)

Songfacts®:

  • It is no exaggeration to say that English is the lingua franca of the known universe. In English, the title of this song renders "Your Decision"; its full title as submitted to the 2009 Eurovision Song Contest by Andorra is "La Teva Decisió (Get A Life)".
  • This has to be one of the most eclectic songs ever recorded. It has music by Rune Braager, Marcus Winther-John, Lene Dissing, (the performer) Susanne Georgi & (sister) Pernilla Georgi; lyrics by Josep Roca Vila - in both Catalan and English. Marcus Winther-John lives in Denmark, and Susanna Georgi was born in Denmark, although she speaks ultra-fluent English.
  • "La Teva Decisió" is easy on the ear, but didn't quite make the grade; the tiny principality first entered Eurovision only in 2004. >>
