This year’s best Eurovish entries

1

May 27, 2010 by popseeker


Eurovision season is well and truly underway, the second semi-final is tonight and it is quite frankly an abomination that a respectable pop outlet like this hasn’t yet mentioned ANYTHING of it, for this I can only profusly apologise.

That said, this year’s entries are lacking in the usual eccentricity of past years. The vast majority are just boring, uninspiring Eurotash ballads. There are a few highlights however:

Michelle McManus (on speed) is representing Iceland this year with the incredibly camp Europoppy ‘Je ne sais quoi’; quite frankly, it’s brilliant:

Greece, which we can always rely on to produce a brilliant tune, has kept up with tradition and is offering what appears to be a 40 year old with a mid life crisis repeatedly shouting ‘OPA’; somehow, it is still fantastic. I’m not quite sure who’s going to pay for next year’s contest if they win though…:

And do you know what? I’ve actually grown to really like our own entry this year. Written and produced by pop legends Stock and Waterman, ‘That Sounds Good To Me’ sung by Josh Dubovie is reminiscent of a STEPS song from the 90s. Have a few listens before you make a judgment:

Israel, Azerbaijan and Denmark are favourites to win this year, but I don’t rate them so I shan’t post them. Israel and Azerbaijan aren’t even in Europe…

THE SECOND SEMI FINAL IS TONIGHT ON BBC THREE AT 8PM, THE FINAL IS ON SATURDAY ON BBC ONE.
