    Memoria is the more uptempo song among the two candidate entries for Blas. "Memoria" is a song that aims to convey  good energy to the public,  but at the same time, make them  excited. The Spanish hopeful says about this song:

    "It is a song with a lot of power, it makes you sing it and get up from your chair. It is a very careful production, with a lot of percussion, with a very powerful set of voices. "The lyrics speak of what you would love to get out of your head, but you know that you will never be able to. Because it makes you remember that you are the version of you today, and it is a way to manage emotions ".

    The song has been composed Blas himself along with Steve Daly, Oliver Som  and  Leroy Sánchez.
