    Default The Eurovision thread

    Folks we are fast approaching the world's largest televised non-sporting event the Eurovision Song Contest. This year it comes from Malmo. We have Ryan Dolan representing us and to be fair it is a step up from the two planks we had the last time. Denmark are favourites. Here is the bould Ryan..............Ireland's Official Eurovision entry 2013 : Ryan Dolan "Only Love Survives" - YouTube

    Dreadful. Absolutely dreadful. Pan-Euro disco mush. No songwriting ability on display. Horribly over-produced. Could be the entry of any country with nothing distinctive or charming about it.

    470,000 YT views seems like a hell of a lot though.

    I mean, good luck to the guy, hope it goes well for him. But God no, this is bad.

    Clanrickard, to be true to the Eurovision concept your post should have been made in three languages.

    Languages don't matter Des. We're all one Europe now. We sing with one voice in one language. As one poet and scholar once put it in a hauntingly beautiful refrain:

    The curtain has been raised, the wall no longer stands
    And from Lisadell to Latvia we’re singing as one clan
    The curtain has been raised and Europe’s all one stage
    And the archipelagic icicles have melted like the cage

    We don’t need no party, just a party band
    A continental choir singing hand in hand



    Archipelagic icicles, you see? They've melted like the, erm, cage. And no party. Oh no. No party...just a party band.

    We need to learn from the wisdom of these words. They can steal the honey, but they'll never steal the sting. Sniff.

    I love the Eurovision. It means that I can listen to Lyric in the mornings. I wish it went on all year long.

    I watched it last year, for the first time in years. I thought the songs in the final were mostly quite good. The crap gets weeded out in the semi-finals. And I liked the song that won too.

    But the voting is still a joke. It's insane that a gigantic state like Russia has only one vote while the Amoeba-splitting Balkan States have dozens, and use them all to vote for each other.

    Brilliant entry - potential winner. Groovy disco beat, strong vocal, strong visual and shades of Westlife. 12 ponits from me.

    Go Ireland!
