    In which country do you live?
    Belgium

    How many years have you been watching the Eurovision Song Contest
    First one I consciously remember was with Clouseau entering in 1991. I think '92 to '94 were off-years, but pretty loyal ever since!

    Quickly, name three countries whose entries you generally like
    Sweden, Netherlands, Ukraine

    Carola or Amina - which do you wish had won?
    Amina - it's the more endurable song. And would have made Charlotte 1999 - 25 years after ABBA, 15 after "Diggi-Loo..." - more symbolic :geek:

    Do you know who Lotta Engberg is?
    Svenska entrant for (Brussels!) 1987, whom EBU forced to change "Coca cola" to "Boogaloo" or something in her lyrics

    What is your favourite winning song of the...

    ...2000s?
    "My Number One"

    ...1990s?
    "Nocturne"

    ...1980s?
    "J'aime la vie" [​IMG]

    ...1970s?
    "Tu te reconnaîtras"

    ...1960s?
    "Poupée de cire, poupée de son"

    Can you sing any of the winning songs from the 1950s?
    Yes! Both "'n Beetje" and "Net als toen" are on my MP3 player, and are really quite catchy to a Dutch-speaker (though I can easily see why they're not to anyone else).

    If you had a Eurovision song played at your funeral, which would it be?
    "Lejla" seems the most appropriate purely going on the mood

    Is CatCat's Bye Bye Baby the greatest Finnish song ever?
    I'm not fully au fait with their entire history, but certainly of the ones I actively know, yes

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

    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)

    First Snoozie Crapper, now this. Such a fiendish way with words!

    I will grant you she could sing for toffee, but in the light of Eurovision legacy that almost seems like an afterthought. It's just sheer Lolita goodness!

    It's not about the vocal on the track, it's about the SONG, which is decades ahead of its time.

    Good post idea Madison. But I haven't lost weight since joining Moopy, unless VoR's dancing making me projectile vomit counts?


    In which country do you live?
    United Kingdom


    How many years have you been watching the Eurovision Song Contest
    I saw the second half of 1998, so ten years.


    Quickly, name three countries whose entries you generally like
    Iceland, Slovenia, Sweden. All of whom are in my top 3 this year!


    Carola or Amina - which do you wish had won?
    I'm not amazed by either of them to be honest. I'll go for Carola though, she doesn't sound like a cat being strangled (or not in Fangad anyway).


    Do you know who Lotta Engberg is?
    100% sure.


    What is your favourite winning song of the...

    ...2000s?

    Ruslana - Wild Dances (2004)


    ...1990s?
    Tough one between 98 and 99, at the moment I'd say Charlotte Nilsson - Take Me To Your Heaven (1999)


    ...1980s?
    Controversial choice: Corinne Hermes - Si La Vie Est Cadeau (1983)


    ...1970s?
    Anne-Marie David - Tu Te Reconnaitras (1973)


    ...1960s?
    More controversy: Massiel - La La La (1968)


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


    If you had a Eurovision song played at your funeral, which would it be?
    Tough one. I'm drawn to 'Let's Get Happy', but instead I'll go for 'I Can't Live Without Music' by Corinna May.


    Is CatCat's Bye Bye Baby the greatest Finnish song ever?
    It's between that and Yamma Yamma. But yes.


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


    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)

    Not all of us were alive when it was first performed, that makes it harder to appreciate if it was ahead of its time of not.

    You forgot to ask about everyone's all-time favourite Eurovision song. But that's probably worth a thread in itself...

    I am a boring lurker who adores Lotta Engberg, so clearly I had to do this questionnaire.

    In which country do you live?
    USA.

    How many years have you been watching the Eurovision Song Contest?

    Only a couple of years.

    Quickly, name three countries whose entries you generally like

    Sweden ...I'm one of those people who likes Melodifestivalen more than Eurovision. :swedish:

    Carola or Amina - which do you wish had won?

    Carola, of course.

    Do you know who Lotta Engberg is?
    Love her, love her, want to be her. But “Fyra bugg & en coca cola”/”Boogaloo” is nothing very special. Arja & Lena were both better that year.

    What is your favourite winning song of the...

    ...2000s?
    My Number One

    Fångad av en stormvind

    ...1980s?
    Making Your Mind Up

    ...1970s?
    Waterloo

    ...1960s?
    Puppet on a String

    Can you sing any of the winning songs from the 1950s?
    No.

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

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

    No, it's Monica Aspelund's “Lapponia.”

    Which is your favourite nil points entry ever?
    I have no idea.

    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)

    It was more 'I know you like the finer points of grammatical correctness' and it was in your thread so I thought I'd make the effort. :)

    There can't be many. Not after she defeated Arja.

    Although the Kikki, Bettan & Lotta performance did win me back a bit...

    I love Molitva. It's probably my third favourite winner this decade, after 2004 and 2003.

    Molitva is a really nice ballad. I prefer My Number One, but I don't think there's any shame in liking it.

    Frankly I'm pleasantly surprised Little My didn't go for Fly On The Wings Of Love...

    ...1960s?
    Poupée de cire, poupée de son - France Gall


    Can you sing any of the winning songs from the 1950s?
    I'm not sure I can.


    If you had a Eurovision song played at your funeral, which would it be?
    What's Another Year - Johnny Logan

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


    Which is your favourite nil points entry ever? (You can pick Pierro and the Music Stars, Little My)
    Off the top of my head I can only recall that Finnish bloke and Jemini. There tends to be a reason I don't know the songs that get 0 points. Although didn't Ireland get no points last year? I LIKED THAT ONE

    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
    22.3

    Cliff Richard

    Ofra Haza

    Lena Philipsson
