A few days before the Eurovision finals (May 27 and 29th), Miro changed the concept of his song, translated it into English, and came up with a new video.
The new concept has an exceptional sexual charge. This is no longer a song about truthfulness, purity, and love that only angels and children possess. Now, Miro sings of lost innocence, losing your faith in angels, and growing up in lies. The new clip portrays “the little girl, a fallen angel” as a promiscuous teenage girl who brings salvation “when the lights go down.” In the video clip, Luiza Grigorova, voted the sexiest Bulgarian woman by the Maxim magazine, is a lover and “shelter” to two “little boys” simultaneously.
This version of the song and the new video remind me of Bernardo Bertolucci’s The Dreamers, a movie about a young American who starts a sensual friendship and companionship with a French brother and sister. Both the song and the movie carry the idea that there is no such thing as holy innocence because even angels crave the forbidden love.
I personally like Miro’s change because it better reflects his artistic style: his songs are often very provocative but they have condemned grave issues such as domestic violence and drug use. In this sense, the new “You are an Angel” conveys a far more mature and symbolically rich message than its predecessor “Angel si ti” (read my previous post).
If only I could persuade everyone to vote for Miro and Bulgaria on the Eurovision finals!
