Countdown to Eurovision
, it's the silly semi-finals for Eurovision
tonight. In protest to this ridiculousness I will naturally restrict
myself to watching the main final on Saturday, still having visited the BBC
page I have already picked out a couple of faves.
I'm liking Lithuania's
'Love or Leave me' by 4FUN for their loungey
, I Love You' (Todomondo
) is good, as is Belgium's
'Love Power' by the KMG'S
'Vampires are alive' by DJBobo
is desperate to cash in on last year's schlock horror theme.
Apparently the big band sound of Germany's
'Frauen Regier'n Die Welt' is favourite to win. It's by a guy called Roger Cicero, who alas isn't Germany's answer to Peter Cetera. Darn.
Perhaps my favourite is Israel's
'Push the Button' by the frankly disturbingly named Teapacks
. With a lyric like:
"I don't want to die/ I want to see the flowers bloom/ Don't want to go kaboom, kaboom"
you can hardly blame me...
A full review of Saturday's contest may follow (haven't finished last years yet) so stay tuned.
