Eurovision Song Contest 2012
Ahhh bless this time where i would sit and watch the television with dad, and he'd tell me how much I should enjoy music by watching Eurovision.



So i've had a look at all the countries which you can do here for about a 20 sec clip of each. If you don't want to spoil it then don't click play.

I'm a fan of Denmark, Germany, Slovenia, Serbia, Italy.
Slovakia and Switzerland are pretty polished songs.
the wildcard if they make top 10 will make my day is Russia.

The old Russian ladies have no chance other than the "aww" factor and seeing how voting goes along general country opinion...the Reds have no chance.

I love how Norway has a song that sounds like about 3-4 commercial dance track hits.

Seeing as I watched the final last night my time i'm gonna spoiler

Spoiler:
Was no doubt that Sweden were gonna pull the win, it was all over the news in the days leading up that the song had 1 million+ youtube views while all the others had around 400k or so.

Bit shocked that Denmark scored so low, thought it was a great song and while not as catchy/poppy as Sweden thought it would have placed alot higher.

Jedward, eat a bag of dicks.

Overall that was some awesome viewing. The SBS commentary is unbeatable!

The Russian Nannas rocked.

I think there was at least a couple of finalists songs that sounded like Lady Gaga ... and one of them was an almost direct rip of Benassi's Satisfaction

And how many god damn fukking epic trance chords was there going on?! ... it's all pop dance and epic kitsch.

Also ... i loathed Sweden

one of the most amusing moments for me was this lady

They were just shy of winning and came 2nd.

Serbia had by far the best song imo, it was both "western" but had a very strong taste of their cultural style of music. It really took you too the steeps of Eastern Europe.
