The Armenian entry for the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest has been revealed this evening in a special show which was aired live by the Armenian broadcaster AMPTV.
Not Alone starts as a piano ballad and the melody sounds epic at the beginning. First thought is that it is going to be a ballad but it builds up and then it surprises with some dubstep. The music of the song was composed by Aram MP3 himself and the author of the lyrics is Garik Papoyan who happens to be Aram’s best friend.
In an interview to eurovision.tv the singer himself recommended that the
song should be heard with closed eyes "not prepared for dancing, but to
unlock the soul, because it penetrates into the very depths of the
human soul". Aram MP3 stated that the message of his song is that "you should never give up and always fight for love. One kiss can change everything."
