** It's not an entirely terrible lyrical idea to base a song around. I too amuse myself by grasping the fact that the enormity of the world's population means that highly improbable interactions are quite likely happening in someone else's world which I'm unaffected by. So really this is disappointing because it doesn't try hard enough, yes there's probably somewhere in the world that someone is holding their first child, I would say that there would be hundreds and thousands of people doing that. It would be far more exciting if he said, 'somewhere in the world tonight, someone's being scolded for immediately sinking the black ball in a game of pool' or 'somewhere in the world tonight, someone's losing a crucial Pokemon battle because the harsh random number generating gods decided that they shall be stuck in paralysis for three turns in a row'. And quite frankly, that's a place I'd perhaps want to be taken to, not this boring place of inert harmony which is probably the only place anywhere that Altiyan's mediocre nothing ballad would be tolerated. It's not as if it doesn't have potential, but it just misses the point of why similar songs pull it off together, this is just 'chug chug chug chug', 'dun dun dun dun', music without flavour basically. 2.3 Last edited: 22/01/2014 11:57
***** Probably the best winner's song for an Australian reality show in a very long time. The fact that it could have been performed by anyone, shows that this works more than a memory of the show its artist will be connectedto for the rest of their life. Deserved to stay longer in the charts than it did.
****** Excellent track that has aged well for me but because of it's genre and the type of music that was popular at the time it was never really going to do well anyway. The last good winners single from any talent show IMO. A forgotten treasure released a few years too late in history.
