The popular band El Sueño de Morfeo was selected internally by TVE in December last year to represent Spain at the 2013 Eurovision Song Contest when it was also announced that the song that they will perform in Malmö would be chosen by a televised show among some songs composed by the members of the band themselves (Raquel del Rosario, Juan Luis Suárez and David Feito).
That show, where the ultimate choice will be made by an expert jury and televote will take place on the 26th of February, but we do not have to wait any longer to listen to the four candidate songs to be the Spanish entry in Malmö as they are now available online on the official website of the broadcaster. Two of them are already qualified for the final and a third one from the remaining two will be chosen by online voting through the TVE website. (The two songs among which voters have to decide are available to full listening but from the two songs, which are directly classified to the final it is only available to listen to a snippet).
The two songs which go straight to the final are:
- Contigo Hasta El Final (With You All The Way). According to the members of El Sueño de Morfeo the lyrics tells about two people who find each other after having lost faith in love. They realize that actually they did not know what love was until then and they decide to undertake the journey of life together forever. Musically, it is a song full of emotions. It starts with an epic introduction by a bagpipe player but it is actually a rock song.
- Dame Tu voz (Give Me Your Voice). They say that this is a call to unity, to unite all our voices to bring a message of hope, especially given the times in which we live. Where there is a will there is a way and together we will succeed because together we are one. The sound of this track is a mix of Celtic and rock with a catchy melody.
There are two more songs of which only one will make it to the final and it will be the one which receive most votes from the users of the broadcaster's website:
- Revolución (Revolution). Raquel, Juan Luis and David say that this song is a cry of hope and peace. It talks about a new geneartion that will change the world considering each new day as a gift. They say that if we want to, we can make the world a better place. The rhythm of the song gets into your head from the first time and it also has a beautiful Celtic melody.
- Atrévete (Dare). They speak about this song as an optimistic, cheerful and lively track whose lyrics says that opportunity knocks but once and how wonderful is to live trusting in our dreams. It is an up-tempo song which includes the sound of the bagpipes, violins and flutes.
It is only allowed one vote per user and the deadline is the 11th of February at mid-day. The next day, TVE will announce the title of the most voted song which then becomes finalist along with the two tracks that have already been chosen.
The members of El Sueño de Morfeo stated that they are proud of the four songs and it is nice to let the public decide which one is their favorite. When composing the songs they have tried to be themselves, with their own style, and the four songs have the essence and the soul that the band has had throughout their career.
