ESC_BelarusNella foto non siamo ad un’edizione estera de La Prova del Cuoco nè ad una puntata di Guinness World Record, ma alla conferenza stampa che la televisione di Stato della Bielorussia ha dedicato a Teo (che non è il nostro Mammuccari, ma che per modi di fare ci si avvicina molto) e alla canzone “Cheesecake” che porterà all’Eurovision Song Contest 2014 di Copenaghen. A vederla sembra decisamente buona la torta, chissà se l’hanno finita veramente tutta!

Sempre a proposito di torte, anche i lettoni hanno deciso di portare una canzone con titolo culinario: la Lettonia verrà infatti rappresentata da “Cake to bake” dei Aarzemnieki. Chissà se a livello di coreografia ritroveremo sul palco qualche forno acceso come successo con le nonnine russe alcuni anni fa. Entrambi i brani, preparati ed infornati, hanno un loro ritmo e specialmente “Cake to bake” è decisamente catchy con le parole che si alternano alla perfezione con le note della chitarra a mano libera: vedremo se in semifinale saranno apprezzati dalle giurie e dal pubblico a casa.

Per entrambe le nazioni in gara le ultime manifestazioni si sono rivelate decisamente sottotono, regalando solamente diverse bocciature nelle fasi semifinali. La Lettonia può però contare su una vittoria, nel 2002, con il brano “I Wanna” di Marie N, dopo l’ottimo debutto al terzo posto di due anni prima.

Bielorussia — “Cheesecake” di Teo

Testo della canzone

Yeah, baby…

Once I gave you one more chance
You showed me dance
But I’m not Patrick Swayzee
You’re not Jennifer Gray

I told this story
But I’m so sorry
I lost my train of thought
When you called me, “My sweet Cheesecake”


I don’t wanna be your toy perhaps today
I’m not gonna be your boyfriend
It’s too late
I look over all the maps trying to escape
’cause I’m tired of your sweet cheesecake

I don’t wanna be your toy perhaps today
I’m not gonna be your boyfriend
It’s too late
I look over all the maps trying to escape
’cause I’m tired of your sweet cheesecake

Ohh…yeah…do-do-do-do

Hey(hey) I will fy far away (aay)
By any plane just not to meet you
On my way, don’t stay, (hay )

You dial my number
Your dreams start crumbling
You want me to be the man I’ll never ever be

I don’t wanna be your toy boy today
I’m not gonna be your boyfriend
It’s too late
I look over all the maps trying to escape
’cause I’m tired of your sweet cheesecake

I don’t wanna be your toy boy today
I’m not gonna be your boyfriend
It’s too late
I look over all the maps trying to escape
’cause I’m tired of your sweet cheesecake

Ohh….yeah…do-do-do-do

I don’t want to be your toy
I don’t want to be your boy
Oh, oh

I don’t wanna
I don’t wanna be your toy
I don’t wanna
I don’t wanna be your boy, baby. Oo-oo-o

Yeah

I don’t wanna
I’m not gonna be your boyfriend
It’s too late
I look over all the maps trying to escape
’cause I’m tired of your sweet cheesecake

I don’t wanna be your toy perhaps today
I’m not gonna be your boyfriend
It’s too late
I look over all the maps trying to escape
’cause I’m tired of your sweet cheesecake

(cheesecake)
I don’t wanna ( heeey)
I’m not gonna be your boy (heeey)


I look over all the maps trying to escape
’cause I’m tired of your sweet cheesecake
Oo-ooo-oo, Ee-ee-ee
I don’t wanna ( heeey)
I’m not gonna be your boy ( heeey)

I look over all the maps trying to escape
’cause I’m tired of your sweet cheesecake

Lettonia — “Cake to bake” dei Aarzemnieki

Testo della canzone

I melted the ice of the polar caps,
found the raiders of the lost ark,
solved a case for the genius from Baker Street,
helped to clean the Central Park.
I created the plan for the Chinese wall,
went to desert, made it rain,
swam through a shark tank bloodily,
found Atlantis, by the way… (but today)


I’ve got a cake to bake – I’ve got no clue at all (cep, cep, cep, cep, cep kuuku)
I’ve got a cake to bake – and haven’t done that before (cep, cep, cep, cep, cep kuuku)
don’t be proud, mate please don’t bother,
go, come on and ask your mother,
how to bake, how to bake, bake that cake…

Cep cep cep cep cep kuuku kuuku cep cep cep cep cep cep kuuku
Cep cep cep cep cep kuuku kuuku cep cep cep


I talked to a unicorn the other night,
took me up on a lonely star,
did the moonwalk on the milky way,
realised I’ve gone too far.
So I questioned the law of gravity,
put the apple back up to the apple tree,
ej tu nost: I even learned Latvian,
I know it’s so hard to believe… (and today)

I’ve got a cake to bake – I’ve got no clue at all (cep, cep, cep, cep, cep kuuku)
I’ve got a cake to bake – and haven’t done that before (cep, cep, cep, cep, cep kuuku)
don’t be proud, mate please don’t bother,
go, come on and ask your mother,
how to bake, how to bake, bake that cake (piece of cake)

Cep cep cep cep cep kuuku kuuku cep cep cep cep cep cep kuuku
Cep cep cep cep cep kuuku kuuku cep cep cep

We’ve got a cake to bake – and got no clue at all
We’ve got a cake to bake – and haven’t done that before
don’t be proud, mate please don’t bother,
go, come on and ask your mother,
how to bake, how to bake, bake that cake (piece of cake)

Mix some dough, add some love, let it bake, wait for it
Mix some dough, add some love, let it bake, wait for it
Mix some dough, add some love, let it bake, have some cake
Mix some dough, add some love, let it bake

We’ve got a cake to bake – and got no clue at all
We’ve got a cake to bake – and haven’t done that before
don’t be proud, mate please don’t bother,
go, come on and ask your mother,
how to bake, how to bake, bake that cake
(Garšīgi)

Prossimo appuntamento: Svezia ed Ucraina.

  1. Bielorussia molto tormentone estivo anni 90. Caruccia, comunque. Lettonia simile alla Svizzera anche se, secondo la mia opinione, merita qualche punto in meno rispetto all’elvetico…

  2. La Lettonia è molto orecchiabile per i miei gusti 🙂 Al contrario della Bielorussia che proprio mi fa venire un po’ di nausea….

  3. Markos
    L’altro giorno c’erano due nazioni con le canzoni a tema sulle tempeste.
    Grande fantasia quest’anno XD
