Am gearing up to a night of Eurovision – mammoth-size knitathon ahead. My fave is Belgium, followed by Bulgaria and Australia. By gum many of the songs are verging on acceptable melodies despite key changes as the contest edges towards taking itself seriously again. It’s mostly youthful, futuristic, great hair everywhere. Too many songs sung in English though.
Politics – there is some for sure. But hey #nopasaran Europe no pasaran. Who will get booed this year – my guess is Russia and Israel. UK entry not too baaad boyz, not bad at all. #Eurovision all my feckin’ life – it was the ultimate show of the year for all the family. Sweden are fun hosts – expecting a lot of cheek from Graham and Petra.
Some brilliant bilingual folk around too. #Learnalanguage or three – it’s good for you! And if you are watching it – whether to groan at or embrace a spectacular live event – please remember #Roma – all music is brought to you by the traveller. Vivire, rock et de prosperer!
