Eurovision Song Contest 2011
Hey, American readers! And I guess Canadians, Mexicans, Brazilians and South Africans.. Well, I guess I’m addressing anyone outside of Europe who doesn’t give a damn about what goes on here in Europe. Oh, Asia of course.
Anyway. Ever heard really horrible music from Europe? No?
Then you are missing out on something spectacular right now. Every year here in Europe we have the televised Eurovision Song Contest where the cremè de la cremè of Eurotrash music is competing to be remembered as “that song that won that year when every other song sucked”.
Sure, bands like ABBA had their breakthrough when they won the contest in whatever year it was but I think it was just because they were dressed just a bit more moderate than the others.
That Celine Dion-chick competed once too… Bah, who cares. You can’t watch it for the songs!
You watch it to enjoy the horrors on display, and listen to the google-translated lyrics that sounds like:
“Murmur murmur murmur desire,
murmur murmur murmur my fire!”
or to see some of them dressed as drag queens singing in some eastern European language where every second word sounds like “sweat” (pronounced zweat).
Tonight the second semifinal airs and all I have to say is:
“Murmur murmur murmur fuck hockey”.
