  • My other half asked a very interesting question though. Do the other countries treat Eurovision as big a joke as we do?

    Well at least a part of Austria does. Util some years ago to very funny and anarchic radio comedians (Stermann & Grisseman) would comment on the song contest live in their radio show. So people turned off the volume on their TV and listen to the hilarious comments from Stermann & Grisseman.

  • Do the other countries treat Eurovision as big a joke as we do?

    We do.

    Even the winner will disappear after next year.

    Didn't Eros Ramazzotti [ramazzotti.com] enter the contest and won, perhaps ten years ago?

  • My lovely horse, running
    through the field,
    Where are you going with
    your fetlocks blowing in the
    wind?
    I want to shower you with
    sugarlumps,
    And ride you over fences,
    Polish your hooves every
    single day,
    And bring you to the horse
    dentist.

    My lovely horse,
    You're a pony no more,
    Running around with a man
    on your back,
    Like a train in the night (yeah)
    Like a train in the night.
