I'm Sorry, But I'm Still Banging On About Eurovision

UK Eurovision entrants SCOOCH are in a spot of hot water about the video of their song, released to cash in coincide with their Eurovision appearance. The very same video which was summarised by reliable pop judges Popjustice as "It's brilliant because it's so shit!! It's what pop is all about!!!".

Anyhoo, that aside. Apparently, if you are going to release a song entitled Flying The Flag (For You) it's best to make sure that you fly the flag the right way 'round. Oops. The whole SCOOCH thing may have bigger repercussions though, I mean it seems that even associating with them can have negative consequences. As I'm sure this fan can attest:



I haven't listened to the song yet, because as I said to Mikey (the lovely ex) in an email earlier today I'm avoiding previewing any of the songs because "I want all the deliciousness to be served fresh!" I have already seen it described as "laboured" and "workmanlike". My special love is for the reviews "I got to 48 seconds before my ears started to bleed and I had to turn it off." and "It's like The Vengaboys never happened." Snerk.

I hope I don't hear it and fall in love with it, because I'm enjoying these reviews way too much.

Well given the red eyes they're obviously agents of Satan... which also says something about their company in the photo...

Sunday, being Mother's Day, I get to choose what we watch, and we're watching Eurovision. For as long as we can stand it anyway.

The UK have done pretty pathetically in Eurovision for about the last.. oh.. 5 years. I hope for their sakes this lot are bad enough to be good. They certainly look sufficiently manufactured.... hmmm perhaps they are autons.

Only 6 hours until it starts!!! I've started to prepare my Swedish meatballs for the finals.

Attack of the autons!

I'm not sure whether knowing that they've mined the same vein as Buck's Fizz and Brotherhood Of Man is a plus... or a MINUS. Time will tell, eh?
