Blue: 'I Can'

By
Blue 'I Can'
Released on Sunday, May 1 2011

"We're not the first ones to be divided/ Won't be the last to be reunited," Duncan James croons on the opening to Blue's comeback effort Eurovision entry. Many have questioned why a group who achieved only success in the early noughties would even consider such a platform to stage their return, but given their once-impressive euro chart stats and an estimated audience of 125 million on the night, we're guessing it has little to do with the 14 years of hurt Britain has suffered at the hands of Pete Waterman, Scooch and Daz Sampson.

"I've never lost anything quite like this/ No second chances if I don't find it," the band continue over juddering synths that give way to a fist-clenching, Blue for 2011 chorus that sadly just misses the spot - the watered down production suggesting they aren't as cocksure of this plan as they claim. "I can, I will, I know, I can untie these hands," they profess. Still - call them crazy, but there's enough here to suggest they might just pull the whole thing off.
