Having now seen no more than 15 seconds of all finalists except Albania and the UK, whose songs were very good, I noticed that the drummer in the band backing the Albanian singer was wearing a toga, very much in the style of Lord Sutch's Savages in 1962-63 - he must have been a fan!!!

Aazed to see things change with the publicvs panel votes but can't really care less.

Bring back abba, brotherhod of man, bucks fizz, sandy shaw, dana...

And McGrath, I still can get through some of Dana's song, me being in late primary school at the time, and bits of the others mentioned.

And the Dana joke, why is she in hospital, as she suffers from all kinds of everything...

France's entry was the only one that took a serious look at the times. And wasn't a bad song either. One of the very few I can conceive of anyone singing in six moths.

That's what puzzles me too, Tattie.

Stanron, you responded to the question "do people really sit and watch this crap???" With the single word, "No". Now, seeing as it is well known that the viewing figures run into the hundreds of millions I do not believe you meant that literally. I just wondered what you did mean. No skin off my nose but I was just interested.

I am a huge Jethro Tull fan as well, Bonzo, but we are talking 2 completely different kettles of fish there. If you don't like Eurovision that is fine by everyone. What is not fine and could be very hurtful to a lot of people on here and elsewhere is body shaming anyone on it.

I downloaded a Jethro Tull show from 1980 this morning, its magnificence outshines anything Eurovision - with the exception of The Shadows' "Let me be the one" in 1975 was it?

I was up for the Israeli song - thought it was the most Eurovision-y. Connecting it to the horrible politics of Israel/Palestine seemed foolish - though the winner's acceptance speech - "I love my country… next time in Jerusalem…" made my skin crawl in the context of the current horrors.

Hungary had a song talking about purity of blood. Finland had kind of neo-Nazi-looking dancers. What the hell, Europe?

The rest seemed pretty anodyne to me.

The UK's continuing custom of having a UK-resident Irish commentator (previously Terry Wogan; now Graham Norton) who refers to the UK entry as "we" and "us" and the Irish entry as "they" and "them" is just nasty.

There were too many strange sounds in the winning song which I could certainly do without but the sentiment of the real lyrics were excellent. The lines

Look at me, I'm a beautiful creature
I don't care about your "modern time preachers"


And

I'm not your toy (Not your toy)
You stupid boy (Stupid boy)


Certainly resonate with some of the more recent comments :-(

Just got back from Morris practice and there was a program on about Eurovision. Only saw the last 10 minutes but caught what must have been the best quote about it I have heard.

"Anything that brings people together is good as there is so much that divides."

I may have paraphrased but the sentiment was that and I think it is very true.

It's not been about the quality of songs for years, Kevin. It is the spectacle and kitsch quality of performances that does it for me. Having said that, I stand by my list of songs that escaped the (bad)quality control :-)


It was the asides that Wogan used to make on the performance and presentation that did it for me. Graham Norton is not bad but has a long way to go to beat the master!

There was a Latin American version between 1972 and 2000 called the OTI Festival. They wound it up, largely because of the poor quality of entrants. From what I've seen of this years songs that might be quite a good idea for us too...
