i just listened to some of the entries, and...mhhh...i am not going to put any money on the Netherlands  ;D ;D ;D ;D

Me neither, but not because of enjoying most of the other entries. I liked Ireland's performance though..  ;) ;) @Zedd , you guys gonna win?


Well, we have a much better chance than we've had for the last 4 years since it's the first time we've made it to the final since 2013...  ;D ;D ... My girls love watching it and it does make it a little more bearable when you've skin in the game as I will be dragged to the couch on Saturday to watch it (ok, I admit it, I secretly enjoy it!  ;D ;D  although the songs are often drowned out by their hysterical laughter) .. I just watched the results and I will admit to some excitement - even if they did make us wait till the end when we were resigned to yet again not getting in... The stress, man!

I like to watch Eurovision to see how many countries don't like the UK very much at all (a lot!).

Some years back I held a Eurovision song contest party at my house and everyone had to dress up in 1970s gear, Abba inspired. Here is a pic of me and the missus:

(EDIT: Pic removed now, due to Mrs M demanding image rights!  ;) )

I realise that some members on here probably dress like this everyday, but that was different for me!

Anyway, if you're interested, Spotify reckon Eurovision winning songs are getting 'sadder'. 8 out of the last 12 winners had songs that sounded sadder than average. I expected that the most popular key for all songs would be C Major - and it is. But the key which in recent years has won 3/12 times is the key of D Minor.

So us songwriters with a penchant for misery might be onto a winner after all.

Finally, I like their voting system - with its famous 'douze points' top score. The voting range helps stretch out the votes and differentiate the clear leaders - and might be useful to employ on here!
If you like novels with a musical theme, why not try 'Sixth Beatle - When Music Changed The World', easily found on Amazon and Google. It is amazing, although as the author I may be biased!
