๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ฑ EBU and Israel agree on lyrics Eden Golan

The EBU has greenlit the revised lyrics for Israel’s entry, clearing the way for Israeli artist Eden Golan’s involvement. This year’s contest is set to take place in Sweden during May.

Initially, Golan intended to perform a piece titled “October Rain,” which appeared to allude to the Hamas assault on Israel on October 7th. Lyrics like “there’s no more oxygen left to breathe” and “each was a good child, without exception” were part of the original song.

However, the EBU, the festival’s coordinator, found the original lyrics overly political and consequently rejected them. Similarly, another track, “Dance Forever,” was turned down for implying a reference to the tragic killing of young Israelis at the Nova music festival on October 7th. The updated submission is named “Hurricane,” although it shares the melody with “October Rain.” Golan is set to debut it on Israeli TV this Sunday.
