As Europe (together with Australia and Israel) are glued to their TV sets watching the 64th Eurovision song competition, we asked ourselves What makes a Eurovision song memorable? does a Eurovision hit have special DNA?

We are a group of artists, musicians and programmers that wanted explore human creativity and challenge it. We have created a Eurovision AI song that celebrates Eurovision – its melodrama, kitsch and camp, its humor and its gimmicks. The result is comprised entirely of material written and composed by Artificial Intelligence, titled “Blue Jeans & Bloody Tears”.

The project team fed hundreds of Eurovision songs – melodies and lyrics – into a neuron network. Then, algorithms produced thousands of new tunes and lines of verse, from which a few musical units were carefully selected and “welded” into a song.

We hope this song will become the Eurovision unofficial anthem of Eurovision 2019. A duet on disillusioned love between Izhar Cohen (Israel’s first Eurovision winner, 1978) and a computer, written and composed by a computer. The song was produced by Avshalom Ariel – one of the creators of TOY (Eurovision song winner, 2018)

Lyrics:
I am lost when i’m with you
There’s no hesitation in your eyes
Baby bye bye bye
Oh bye bye bye
Baby by myself the stain
grows more obvious

In this pain of the bird who’s flying
Over roses of sadness
Baby bye bye bye
Oh bye bye bye
Baby summer’s gone
It’s gone for the both of us

And tears will always have wet eyes
I’ll cry but I’ll survive
On a mission
I will let you go forever

Blue jeans and bloody tears
Blue jeans and bloody tears
There’s no life without your life in misery
Blue jeans and bloody tears
Don’t give up on a precious summer
Rolling in the moonshine
Baby by bye-bye
Oh by bye-bye
Baby let me go
So close to the holy ground

Tears will always have wet eyes
I’ll cry but I’ll survive
On a mission
I will let you go forever

Blue jeans and bloody tears
Blue jeans and bloody tears
There’s no life without your life in misery
Blue jeans and bloody tears

Don’t break my heart – It’s powerless
This magic is in spite of me
Don’t keep me hanging on

Don’t break my heart – It’s powerless
This magic is in spite of me
Don’t keep me hanging on
keep me hanging on
keep me hanging on
I will let you go forever
Blue jeans and bloody tears

Blue jeans and bloody tears
Blue jeans and bloody tears
There’s no life without your life in misery
Blue jeans and bloody tears

Blue jeans and bloody tears
Blue jeans and bloody tears
There’s no life without your life in misery
Blue jeans and bloody tears

People keep shitting on the "Tears will always have wet eyes" line but it's honestly not even that bad. It's personifying two concepts to make them similar to having a relationship.

"Tears will always have wet eyes" that hit me so hard. This song is so deep.

FunnyMonkay says:

This reminds me of what Miyazaki said in response to seeing 3D model movement animations created by AI:
“I strongly feel that this an insult to life itself.”
I know for sure he’d think that about this.

Accelerator says:

Uh, yeah we made a robot that cuts and pastes music so we can infringe on as many copyrights as possible for youtube views. Woke.
