Are they employing the Duckworth-Lewis Method?

You can still get pregnant with that.
Oh, Bach without any doubt. Bach every time for me.

I bloody hope not, Vernon and I would create something fucked up enough to bring it home for Royaume-Uni.

Is there really any shame in NOT winning the Eurovision Song Contest?

I thought *not* winning was generally a huge relief!

I'm pondering whether coming second to last is more humiliating to coming last. We weren't even best at being worst.

I didn't know Andrij could play whatever that stringed instrument is.

Huh?

On a related note, the bagpipe bloke looks just like one of my mates.  He was not amused when we pointed that out to him.  Repeatedly.  ;D
;D  Andrij.  I pronounce you Complete and Utter GIT   :thumbsup:

Is it racist to say that (almost) all the entries sounded the same? (and have done for years now)

If you'd said that a lot of the entries are a bit 'samey' I can't believe that even the most insanely 'right on' members on here would have construed that as racist. Perhaps you need a prolonged sojourn in the real world.

Not racist at all. Quite the opposite... it's all inclusive!

I do think there's a euro club/pop/beat sound that many of the Eurovision entries seem to go for.  A kind of synth-pop, clubland, dance floor sound. When I hear it, I'm reminded of the UK 80/90s, bands like Erasure etc (those big in the gay club scene). That at least to me seems to be a touch point for the europop/eurobeat sound, though which influenced the other, I don't know.

I tend to like the more folk-y ones myself.
