Basim

He is one of the few people that all of Denmark is on a first-name basis with. In 2008, at the age of just 15 years old Basim came fourth in the first season of X-Factor and since then has become a household name. Now he has the honour of representing Denmark on home turf at the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest in Copenhagen with a song that he wrote himself.

Anis Basim Moujahid (born 4 July 1992), better known as Basim, is a Danish singer and songwriter. He is of Moroccan origin, but lives in Copenhagen, Denmark.

After X Factor, he started a solo singing career in Denmark with two albums and one EP released: Alt det jeg ville have sagt in 2008 and Befri dig selv in 2009. Basim will represent Denmark in the Eurovision Song Contest 2014 on home turf in Copenhagen with the song Cliche Love Song written by himself.

"Tunes often just come to you when you least expect it, and the melody to Cliche Love Song came out of the blue".

"The song is about a girl I meet and have a crush on. I try and do everything I can in order to get her to love me, but no matter what I do, it just feels like a cliché, and that is the theme of the song. But there is a twist to the song", explains Basim.

Europe will love Basim's love song

He describes Cliche Love Song as a pop song with a hint of soul and R&B. He is looking forward sharing it with the rest of Europe and is not taking part just for the sake of it.

"It is going to be fantastic to sing Cliche Love Song for the rest of Europe! I am going to have the entire country watching my back, and we just need to get the rest of Europe to think like us", he said.

Lyrics of Cliche Love Song

I met this lady - Lady
she was looking so dawn fine
But she was crazy - Crazy
it was all about party time

and lately - Lately
I felt like somethings wrong
So Flaky, and Shaky
When the sun went down

yeah, boom boom boom
when she walked the room
Even girls they whistle - (whistle)
I know, it's hard to get her
She's a special girl

It feels like
skuba duba dabda dididaj
skuba duba dabda dididaj
I love you
A another cliche baby
skuba duba dabda dididaj
skuba duba dabda dididaj
Baby I'ma do whatever you like
I love you
A another Cliche baby

Oh Oh Oh - Hey!
Oh Oh Oh - Hey!
Oh Oh Oh - Hey!
Another Cliche baby

Like Katy Perry - So Sexy
She could kiss a lucky girl
Taste like cherry - Cherry
Yeah, she could rock your world

Cloud Seven - Seven
I never felt like this before
She took me closer, to heaven
OMG, let's go

Yeah, boom boom boom
when she walked the room
Even girls they whistle - (whistle)
I know, we could be together
You're a special girl

It feels like
skuba duba dabda dididaj
skuba duba dabda dididaj
I love you
A another cliché baby
skuba duba dabda dididaj
skuba duba dabda dididaj
Baby I'ma do whatever you like
I love you
A another Cliché baby

Oh Oh Oh - Hey!
Oh Oh Oh - Hey!
Oh Oh Oh - Hey!
Another Cliché baby

Now tell me what I gotta do
Just give that little clue
Another Cliché baby
Now I'm just feeling blue
I gotta break through - To You
YEAH!!!
C’est une sensation de
skuba duba dabda dididaj
skuba duba dabda dididaj
Je t’aime
Encore un cliché bébé
skuba duba dabda dididaj

Bébé, je ferais tout ce que tu me demandes,
Je t’aime
Encore un cliché bébé

Oh Oh Oh - Hey!
Oh Oh Oh - Hey!
Oh Oh Oh - Hey!
Encore un cliché bébé

Come Katy Perry
Elle pouvait embrasser une fille bénite
Le gout de cerise
Oui, elle bougeait ton monde

Nuage 7
J’ai jamais ressenti cela
Elle m’a rapprocher du ciel
Mon dieu, on y va

Oui, boom boom boom
Quand elle entrait la pièce
Même les filles siffle (siffle)
Je sais qu’on peut-être ensemble
Tu est une fille spéciale

C’est une sensation de
skuba duba dabda dididaj
skuba duba dabda dididaj
Je t’aime
Encore un cliché bébé
skuba duba dabda dididaj
skuba duba dabda dididaj
Bébé, je ferais tout ce que tu me demandes,
Je t’aime
Encore un cliché bébé

Oh Oh Oh - Hey!
Oh Oh Oh - Hey!
Oh Oh Oh - Hey!
Putain de cliché bébé

Maintenant dis moi ce qu’on doit faire
Donne moi une petite idée
Encore un cliché bébé
Je me sens un peu mélancolique
Il me faut percer – jusqu’a toi
Yeahhh!
