Review

Lovely heartwarming song from France in the Eurovision from 2018 which was held in Lisbon, Portgual. 

They finished 13th overall, but notably came 2nd in the OGAE vote, which is a public vote of typically a younger cross-section.

Simple yet effictive beat, has some nice simple lyrics for language learners.  

Madame Monsieur are a husband/wife duo, band chose the topic of the refugee crisis to make an evocative song, and the YouTube video features people fleeing war now safe in France.

Émilie the female vocalist, of course, gives it to the max with flemy noises that French people make.
