    Now that I think of it "Disappear" would make a great Eurovision funeral song, wouldn't it?

    What's with all the Dutch contingent?

    Is Aaaaaargh (forgot to count how many 'a's they had) originally from the U.S. or an immigrant. If the former, how on earth did you discover Eurovision?

    Was JetBoy known as someone else? Or did they go awol ages ago?

    Answers on a postcard please. :angel:

    It's a remarkably common name in the Benelux, actually, though mostly within a more downmarket demographic...

    No faves for the '90s, '80s, '70s and '60s, Shee? Of course we know for the first category you're just too heart-torn between "The Voice" and "Rock 'n' Roll Kids". :(

    Heja Little My, so nice to finally officially meet. There was such a "Broadway leading lady" buildup to your recent reappearance--it was more exciting than the deltävling from Leksand.

    I'm definitely American, former farm boy from the Canadian border since relocated to NYC and LA, though I don't look or sound particularly American. (I was just telling Milky that with my shaggy blond hair and euro rocker look people often compliment me on my perfect English when they first meet me since they assume I'm Northern European.)

    Been interested in ESC for many years, but the last decade (since the DVDs were for sale and the rise of internet streaming of the finals and national selections) it's a lot easier to stay connected. Being a Eurofan in the US is like being part of this AMAZING secret world that almost nobody here is aware of. One of my gym training clients is a Euro-loon from Scotland who travels to ESC every year, so he has connected me with all the Euro gay expats here who have viewing parties for the previews and finals...

    I shall frame this post! See David, Moopists do miss me. :o

    Actually, I feel my presence was only missed for the lack of voters. :)

    I knew there had to be some European influence in there. Anyway, welcome, it's good to have a more diverse community in here. Just remember, my voting is fabulous and rest of moopy, especially David, have no taste whatsoever! :D

    Only because I can't think of many right now and I can't resist the prospect of a big gospel choir, Love shine a light.

    Is CatCat's Bye Bye Baby the greatest Finnish song ever?
    I don't know

    Which is your favourite nil points entry ever? (You can pick Pierro and the Music Stars, Little My)
    I only know Jemini, and I don't think it was THAT bad, just fronted by two terrible people singing badly.

    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)

    Cliff Richard
    50

    Ofra Haza

    Skamp
    50 (don't know who that is)

    What is the most played Eurovision tune on your computer/mp3 player?
    iTunes says differently, but I think it is either Believe me by Julia Savicheva (Russia, 2004) or I Do by Fabrizio Faniello (Malta, 2006)

    Unfortunately, this is true. :shy:

    I was even sat by the radiogram on a Sunday afternoon poised to record it with my tape recorder as it made the top twenty! Wooooo! :D

    Incidentally, my sisters were jealous as mine had a pause button, so made less of a clunk when recording. Another bonus for being young(er). Technology moves on.

    Yes, I've been quietly seething over that one, tempered only by the fact he thought Amina should have won in 1991!
