    In which country do you live?
    Slovenia

    How many years have you been watching the Eurovision Song Contest?
    Since 1995-1996 I think


    Quickly, name three countries whose entries you generally like

    Sweden, Denmark, UK


    Carola or Amina - which do you wish had won?
    Carola


    Do you know who Lotta Engberg is?
    Hell yeah!


    What is your favourite winning song of the...

    ...2000s?
    Helena Papa - My Number One


    ...1990s?
    Charlotte Perrelli - Take Me To Your Heaven


    ...1980s?
    Herreys - Diggiloo diggiley AND Bobbysocks - La det swinge


    ...1970s?
    ABBA - Waterloo (well, duh!)


    ...1960s?
    hmmm, "Boom Bang A Bang" - Lulu - perhaps


    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?

    Charlotte Perrelli - Hero or Fame - Give Me Your Love - the song that made me an ESC and Sweden fan


    Is CatCat's Bye Bye Baby the greatest Finnish song ever?
    Nope. "Lose Control" and "Elaköön elamaa" are.


    Which is your favourite nil points entry ever? (You can pick Pierro and the Music Stars, Little My)
    Perhaps Jemini. If the song was re-arranged and given to H & Claire instead, it would have been quite decent actually.


    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 - voice & music - 80, personality - 10

    Cliff Richard - 40

    Ofra Haza - 60

    Lena Philipsson - 100 (no discussion here!)

    Skamp - 0


    What is the most played Eurovision tune on your computer/mp3 player?
    Right now - Malena Ernman - La voix

    New around here so this seemed like a good thread to start with...

    In which country do you live?
    United Kingdom

    How many years have you been watching the Eurovision Song Contest
    More than I care to admit - I have always said "Waterloo" was my earliest memory, but hat could be wishful thinking as I was only two years old. I definitely remember 1980 in glorious technicolour though.

    Quickly, name three countries whose entries you generally like
    Gotta be Sweden, then probably Iceland and Denmark - not that I am a Nordo-phile, or anything!

    Carola or Amina - which do you wish had won?
    Carola - of course, if only for the leaping dancers!

    Do you know who Lotta Engberg is?
    Of course - never mind Boogaloo - 100% is where it is at - gotta love Triple and Touch!

    What is your favourite winning song of the...
    ...2000s?

    Every Way That I Can - Sertab

    ...1990s?
    Take Me To Your Heaven - Charlotte Nilsson

    ...1980s?
    Depending on my mood... La Det Swinge - Bobbysocks (normally); What's Another Year - Johnny Logan (after a glass or two)

    ...1970s?
    Almost any of them - close run thing between Ding Dinge Dong, Après Toi and Hallelujah

    ...1960s?
    Poupée De Cire, Poupée De Son - France Gall

    Can you sing any of the winning songs from the 1950s?
    I might have a stab at Refrain, but I would probably get lost after a line or two!

    If you had a Eurovision song played at your funeral, which would it be?
    I'd like folk to have a good time, really, so maybe Tornero by Mihai!

    Is CatCat's Bye Bye Baby the greatest Finnish song ever?
    I have a strange soft spot for Lauras Addicted to Love - sorry!

    Which is your favourite nil points entry ever? (You can pick Pierro and the Music Stars, Little My)
    Cry Baby by Jemini was wonderful (until they sang it live) - and who could resist Quien Maneja Mi Barca?

    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

    95 musically - possibly less in the flesh!

    Cliff Richard
    50

    Ofra Haza
    80

    Lena Philipsson
    100 - and not just because she seems like royalty on this site, rather because she IS royalty!

    Skamp
    25 - for giggle value

    What is the most played Eurovision tune on your computer/mp3 player?
    If MF counts, then it's Dansa i Neon by HRH Lena, if it's got to be strictly Eurovision, then (surprisingly) it's Det Gör Ont by you-know-who, if Lena is excluded then (somewhat bizarrely), it's Talking to You by Jakob Sveistrup

    Hmmm

    Overall, promising, but I am slightly disturbed by the love for What's Another Year and Talking To You...

    It's not really love - I just have quite a few wishy-washy moments...

    If it helps, the next most-played is Drama Queen by DQ and then Congratulations by Silvia Night...??

    Pedantry is fine - my mistake - was getting carried away!

    And YES - I am partial to the EMD mob - am I too new to the forum to say "Baby Goodbye" really should have won!?

    Questionnaire

    In which country do you live?
    UK! North East England to be exact, but I spent a year in London and am moving to Manchester soon.

    How many years have you been watching the Eurovision Song Contest
    Pretty much as long as I can remember, but I've actually been paying attention since about 2003. This year is the first year I've actually watched NFs and listened to the songs before watching the semis on TV though.

    Quickly, name three countries whose entries you generally like
    Sweden, Turkey and Greece

    Carola or Amina - which do you wish had won?
    I've not been around for long enough to make an informed choice!

    Do you know who Lotta Engberg is?
    No :(

    What is your favourite winning song of the...

    ...2000s?
    My Number One


    ...1990s?
    Take Me To Your Heaven


    ...1980s?
    Making Your Mind Up


    ...1970s?
    Waterloo


    ...1960s?
    Boom Bang-a Bang


    Can you sing any of the winning songs from the 1950s?
    No, I'm not even gonna pretend to have heard of any of them


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


    Is CatCat's Bye Bye Baby the greatest Finnish song ever?
    *looks it up* Um, I have a feeling I'm meant to say yes to this, but I'm quite partial to this year's entry!


    Which is your favourite nil points entry ever? (You can pick Pierro and the Music Stars, Little My)
    Jemini! I liked the song, it's just a shame they were a bit off :P


    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. I couldn't be mean to someone my Nanna loves
    I don't know enough about the others to comment again, sorry!

    What is the most played Eurovision tune on your computer/mp3 player?
    Probably Norway's entry last year. Or Stay The Night by Alcazar, which should have been a Eurovision song.

    Though I might have some trouble staving off a giggle on the "bad crimes" line.

    I liked the sound of Sver but I fear that's the last we'll hear from them. I wonder what the average stay of the new posters in this thread is?

    And just for the record, EMD were fabulous. :disco:

    So hey ho, everybody!

    I'm Katy, a 20-year old girl from Slovenia, who's obsessed with everything catchy, schlagerish, pop, Swedish, Eurovision, Melodifestivalen, S/A/W and danceable. My favourite ESC country if of course Sweden and my passion burns for Melodifestivalen every year. I've been to the final of Mf in 2007 and it's really been an experience of a lifetime.

    My fave artists include: Charlotte Perrelli, Malena Ernman, Fredrik Kempe, Lena Philipsson, ABBA, Caracola, Roxette, Robyn, BWO, September, Velvet, Daniela, Gathania, Basic Element, Peter Joback, A-Teens, Carola, Alcazar, Magnus Carlsson, Lili & Susie, Ankie Bagger, Angel, Troll, Fredrik Willstrand, Andreas Johnson, Jessica Andersson, Magnus Backlund, Sara Lofgren, Anna-Klara Folin, Andres Esteche, Fernando Fuentes, Viktoria Limenza, Patrik Rasmussen, Mathias Holmgren, Wiktoria Nilsson, Jimmy Jansson, Johan Becker, Karl Martindahl, Sandra Dahlberg, Linda Bengtzing, Sandra Oxenryd, Daniel Lindstrom, Darin, Agnes Carlsson, Mans Zelmerlow, Sibel Redzep, Ola Svensson, Markus Fagervall, Erik Segestedt, Danny Saucedo, Marie Picasso, Amanda Jenssen, Daniel Karlsson, Kevin Borg, Alice Svensson, Anna Bergendahl, Robin Ericsson, Excellence, Supernatural, Amy Diamond, Markoolio, E.M.M.A., Sofie, Fairytale, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, U2, Bon Jovi, Aerosmith, Kylie Minogue, Rick Astley, Jason Donovan, Martika, Steps, Scooch, S Club 7, Same Difference, Jump5, Madonna, Sakis Rouvas, Aqua, Daze, Toy-Box, Creamy, Anne Gadegaard, Simone Egeriis, Nicolai Kielstrup, S.O.A.P., Backstreet Boys, *NSYNC, O-Town, 98 Degrees, Stevie Wonder, Blue, Tina Turner, Michael Jackson, Janet Jackson, Paula Abdul, Mika, Michael Buble, Marvin Gaye, Billy Ocean, Leona Lewis, Celine Dion, Whitney Houston, Hej Matematik, 5ive, Usher, Elisabeth Andreassen, Bjorn Skifs, Pernilla Wahlgren, Freestyle, Atomic Kitten, Queen, ... (just copypasted from my Facebook LOL)

    Besides Sweden and MF I also love UK pop, especially stuff from Stock-Aitken-Waterman, who are three of my fave songwriters (along with Fredrik Kempe, Alexander Bard, Ola Håkansson, Max Martin and Benny Andersson). My fave PWL stars must be Sonia (she was SO robbed on ESC! She should have won!), Kylie, Rick Astley (nice for Rickrolling, but Best Act Ever on MTV VMAs - nah!), Jason Donovan, Hazell Dean and Mandy Smith.

    Other favourite countries: Denmark, Norway, Iceland, Finland, Netherlands, Germany and Spain.

    So that was all about me for now. This forum seems like VEEEEEERY nice place and I'm looking forward of writing posts and chatting with u guys.

    Have fun xxxxx, Katy

    I've always had respect for Slovenia.

    Mr Nobody, Vrag naj vzame and cvet z juga are personal favourites too.

    I'm still angry Mandoline wasn't sent though :evil:

    Well sensational for having a NF when jury NEVER agrees with public, deffinitely!

    And sensational for not letting a potential Top 10-er to ESC, "Mandoline" - oh yeah!

    2007 was nice enough to come to the final, yes. Shame that Alenka Gotar is a real bitch generally (I know, I met her!) so that puts it down A LOT IMO.

    2008 was okay, shame it didn't pass the semi instead of hmmm Goat Bilan for example, but I kinda knew it. Rebeka seems cool though.

    Welcome to the board Katy :D

    Oh and Rebeka should have finalled last year - no doubt about it. It was my first major disappointment of 2008 and set the tone for the disaster that was to follow just days later :(

    This must be what it must be like when an attractive woman walks into a Sci Fi convention or a Games Workshop and isn't looking for directions.

    It is! We should prod Katy 'down there' to see if she is really a MAN. Just like Sinitta said used to happen to her in the 80's (for a different reason - but do you all see how I kept the SAW theme going? :angel:).

    Good idea.
