firstly ,the Eurovision Song Contest is a whole load of bollox but I will be watching it this year for one reason - Ireland's Entry!
The contest started with pretty good songs back in the 60's and 70's.. It's how Abba were found out, although that may not have been a good thing! :p
However in recent years the contest has gone from crap bubble-gum pop songs to ridiculous pop-dance tunes with idots hopping around the stage. Due to bloc voting (neighbouring countries in Easter Europe voting for each other) the contest has gone from a contest of crap songs with crap singers to crap songs voted by geographical (political) preference. Prime example is Croatia,Serbia and Bosnia who all vote for each other. Which is funny since 15 years ago they were knockin the shit out of each other during the Balkans War :)
Anyways, Ireland, thankfully, have decided to stop taking the contest seriously and are sending this Parody!
have a look at it, it's a crap song but if you know what the Eurovision is then it's a really funny song.. - YouTube - 2008 Ireland - Dustin the Turkey - "Irlande Douze Pointe"
and here is an interview with Sky News for the winning entry - YouTube - Dustin The Turkey on Sky News (Ireland Eurovision 2008)
Come on the Irish..let's show Europe that this song contest is a joke!! :)
They should be playing Clann Zu!
Clann Zu? They are the Australian/Irish band? I think I've heard them before...They've a song called "Crashing on the Floor"? I think... :nodding: ?
Yeah. They're about the only semi-Irish band I know except for the Dropkick Murphys, I guess. Sorry. =p
Clann Zu's great, though.
Dropkick Murphy's are good... Like that band Flogging Mollys..Only Dropkick's are better :D
