    I'm going to re-do this.

    In which country do you live?

    UK

    How many years have you been watching the Eurovision Song Contest

    Enough to have most people close to me instinctively know scheduling anything social during a weekend in May needs checking with me first.

    Quickly, name three countries whose entries you generally like

    Outside of the Scandinavian lot: Albania, France and Moldova.

    Carola or Amina - which do you wish had won?

    Don't make me choose!

    (Carola :lies:)

    Do you know who Lotta Engberg is?

    Lena's butcher. (Arja can get bent.)

    What is your favourite winning song of the...

    ...2000s?

    You're my LUH-VERRR, underCOVERRR

    ...1990s?

    Don't make me choose!

    (Diva's objectively more essential but Take Me To Your Heaven's like three minutes of heroin straight to the brain without the inconvenience of any side-effects)

    ...1980s?

    La det swinge. You know a track's doing well when it makes Take Me To Your Heaven sound JOYLESS :disco:

    ...1970s?

    Hallelujah

    ...1960s?

    Non ho l'eta

    Can you sing any of the winning songs from the 1950s?

    Barely.

    If you had a Eurovision song played at your funeral, which would it be?

    Nostalgija. I'd have my coffin descend into the flames during the money note.

    Is CatCat's Bye Bye Baby the greatest Finnish song ever?

    Yes. But it's close between Bye Bye Baby and Hanna Pakarinen and only settled by the video.

    Which is your favourite nil points entry ever? (You can pick Pierro and the Music Stars, Little My)

    Laß ihn.

    Rate the following out of 100...
    (0 = Worse than Hitler, if you saw them on the other side of the road, you'd run up to them and push them in traffic
    50 = Quite indifferent to them
    100 = You'd throw yourself in front of traffic if you thought they would be impressed by it)

    Carola 80

    Cliff Richard 20

    Ofra Haza 70

    Lena Philipsson 100

    Skamp 20

    What is the most played Eurovision tune on your computer/mp3 player?

    Overall probably Euphoria, but that's a bit of a boring answer. Outside of the obvious lot, it'll be Främling nowadays.

    Welcome to the forum, Alex Range! What's it like being a Eurovision fan in Russia in 2014?

    Zdravstvuyte tovarisch :military:

    Why did you not watch the finals in the last three years? Was it in protest at the non-qualifications of Eva Boto, Valentina Monetta and Mei Finegold? How would you rate the Tolamachevy sisters on a scale from 10 to 12455?

    I don't understand. You're a Eurovision fan who didn't watch the finals?

    They'd be friendly if you didn't come out with Putin-endorsed shite.

    Do you watch the performances, even if you don't watch the final? If UK and Germany are some of your favourites, you would never see them perform in the semis!

    I'd watch the final at 4AM even if Azerbaijan were the hot favourites with a dull ballad.

    I said "I'd watch". It's hypothetical.

    Don't question Poison Pen's certainty on hypothetical situations, you'll find yourself on the receiving end of a BLACK & WHITE THROWDOWN

    They're hot favourites when the Alliyev's say they are.

    In lieu of doing any actual work I'm going to revisit my answers from 2008.

    Still true.

    No change here either, I'd say 2008-9 were the years I went FULL LOON. 2013 also a watershed year in that I actually attended for the first time.


    BELARUS? :D

    Still true I guess, but I'd never put them in my top 3. In recent years I'd say Sweden, Iceland, Estonia.

    Hmm. Depends on my mood but France REALLY deserved a win in the early 90s. Glad old mad-eyes won at least once though, it'd be silly if she hadn't.

    Still true. :evil: She has other, better songs though and her TV show is LIFE.

    I think Everyway That I Can is my favourite these days. From 2000-2009 anyway. Including 2010-2014 it's Euphoria by a mile.


    Still true, though Nocturne runs it close.


    God, really 2008 VoR?

    Not the best decade for classic winners in fairness, but for sheer JOIE DE VIVRE I'm saying La de swinge, followed by Ne partez pas sans moi, then Ein bißchen Frieden and Si la vie est cadeau, even though the latter shouldn't have won.

    For SHAME. Tu te reconnaîtras now, followed by the overplayed but still glorious Waterloo.


    Dansevise now. MESMERING.

    Een Beetje is the most hummable. I could have a crack at Refrain too. The other two I've heard several times but they're really not very catchy.

    Nocturne now methinks.

    I know it now and yes, probably. Though I have a major soft spot for När jag blundar.

    Antes do adeus is LOVELY. Yeah fuck you Gunvor.

    Downgrading to an 80 for the abortion that was One Love and fannying about with tribute albums for the last few years.

    Same. NONCE SENSE.

    Fair

    OBVIOUSLY :disco:

    A 10 for comedy value

    Probably still true. Euphoria must be up there now though.

    Post-The Miseducation of Dinlo


    :D NO REGRETS IN BELARUS. Azerbaijan not so much. I'd say Serbia, Slovenia and Sweden.


    :D :disco:

    Now I'd say either Every Way That I Can or Satellite. Marie N always in my heart tho xox

    Still true, although Nocturne wouldn't be far behind.



    Who the fuck is Safira? It could only ever be Oro.


    It genuinely is Celebrate :D


    PFFT. Vile old harridan. 15

    Upgraded to 20 for being topical.

    Oh she's great. 85

    Same.

    Awful. 10.


    I think it's now I Love Belarus :D.

    I know you from another forum. And I don't mind your countdowns, some epic songs have emerged from them.

    He considers Conchita Wurst's victory to be a 'disgrace to the contest' and posted 'Eurovision 1956 - 2014' the day after she won.
