It's Not Magic, It's Work!

21 May 2006


Yesterday was the annual EuroVision Song Contents. As usual it's an utter pile of rubbish, but Terry Wogan's silly comments make it almost watchable.

There are three classes of song:

  • A badly written and sung love song in English
  • A novelty song, sung by a novelty band
  • An actual song, sung in the singer's native language

Most songs this year were very banal love songs, sung by skimpyly clad women, on a stage full of dancers. The winner was the Finnish novelty band, not a very good song but at least it wasn't a silly love song.
