Luminita Anghel | Sistem Let Me Try
"Let Me Try" was the Romanian entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 2005, performed in English by Luminiţa Anghel and Sistem written and arranged by Cristian Faur.
The song is an up-tempo number in the eurodance style. Anghel addresses a lover, telling him that "I don't wanna say goodbye", implying throughout the lyric that their relationship is coming to an end. She asks why they "couldn't give it one more try", and tells him that "I will find a way to make you stay".
At the Contest, the performance featured Anghel's backing group (Sistem) banging on what were designed to appear as drums of industrial waste and wearing the lids of these drums as shoes. Anghel also took part in these activities during the instrumental sections of the song.
BBC commentary on both nights of the Contest likened Anghel to Ruby Wax due to her hairstyle.
