A professional jury and the audience by televoting will decide who will represent Spain at the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest.
Below is the list of the artists and their songs which can be listened to by clicking on the title of each song.
Brequette – Más (Run)
Brequette arrives to the national selection together with an expert Eurovision team led by Tony Sanchez-Ohlsson and Thomas G:son. Her entry is a powerful uptempo song where Brequette shows all her vocal and interpretive potential. The lyrics in Spanish and English tell the story of a love that she had to let go and now she needs to bring it back. It is not a sad message but a declaration of love with strength, determination and courage.
Jorge González – Aunque Se Acabe El Mundo
Jorge participates with a latin pop song composed by Kiko Rodríguez, Nicolas Bruno, Leticia Fuentes and María José Fernández. Aunque Se Acabe El Mundo, which means Even If The World Ends, is about a love story whose lyrics invites you to dream and fight to achieve your goals overcoming all the obstacles that you find on the way. With this song, he sends a positive message and encourages everyone to never give up.
La Dama – Estrella Fugaz
Her song, written by one of the most popular artists in the Spanish music scene, Melendi, sounds like an interesting mix between R&B and electronic pop. Estrella Fugaz, which means Shooting Star, tells the story of a relationship which is cooling off from the viewpoint of a very intuitive woman. It is a portrait of the ephemeral nature of love when it becomes monotonous.
Raúl – Seguir Sin Ti
Seguir Sin Ti, which means Go On Without You, tries to explain in three minutes what happens in our hearts when you lose a person you loved deeply. It is a classic ballad full of strength, honesty and melancholy. The authors of this song are William Luque and Domingo Sánchez.
Ruth Lorenzo – Dancing In The Rain
This pop song has been written by Ruth herself alongside Jim Irvin and Julian Emery and has been produced between Madrid and London. Ruth said she wrote this song during one of her darkest moments when she lived in the British capital. It has a catchy chorus and its message is that overcoming adversity is one of the big challenges we have in life, that is inevitable, but you always have to continue fighting for what you believe. Even if it rains, we have to learn to dance in the rain and never lose faith.
