For anyone who didn't spend their Saturday night watching the Eurovision song contest shame on you! Like every other year it was mostly full of Euro dross but there was a least one good song and a couple of quality giggles. So here's my top 3 from Eurovision 2008.
France - Sebastien Tellier & The Soul Gospel Singers - 'Divine'
This was the one good song and the first eurovision entry I've heard well before it became the french entry. Far too cool for school and the rest of Europe.
Latvia - Pirates of the Sea - 'Wolves of the Sea'
Pirates are so awesome! This reminds me of the pirate song from Lazytown
Spain - Rodolfo Chikilicuatre - 'Baila El Chiki Chiki'
Spain chose their song from entries on MySpace, total Robocop madness!
So that was Eurovision 2008, we came last again. It's about time we wised and realised that we're not gonna win ever again and stop taking it seriously. Along with France and Germany we're in a unique position as because we pay for most of the contest we get automatic entry into the final. So next year there's only one thing we can enter..........GRINDCORE!!!!! But none of this short 30 second grindcore, we need a 10 minute grindcore odyssey. Either that or a random tramp banging a frying pan while serenading a can of special brew, Europe would vote for that.
Good Riddance, March
