I know this is a bit after the event but I actually stayed in on Saturday night to watch the Eurovision song contest. It was pouring down with rain and there was nothing else to do. Saying that I was surprised at the standard of songs on offer (UK not withstanding,I was ashamed). Myself and others in my group were taken aback by this click here. A truly original entry and captivating. If you know of any song that sounds like this I'd be surprised. It was too good for Eurovision.
The contest was staged in Finland and the band that covered during the voting period was Apocalytia nuff said. Still like my Nightwish and WT (off to see them in Paris Oct 8th my birthday!) By then that will be just down the road for me.I'm emigrating in 3 months time. There seems to have been a change in the songs in Eurovision this year in that there were actual SONGS rather than europap. If you had watched the contest (which I hadn't done for years) then it would have come as a big suprise
