Turkey to reach Serbia? — 7 Comments

  1. Thats if the Eastern European countries don’t gang up and win again with their wonderful songs!!!!There was a time when good songs won take Abba for instance Meself and Helen went to see Mamma-Mia at the Bristol Hippodrome on Saturday and whilst sitting watching the show I thought what musical and lyrical geniuses they were.
    We need a Dustin over here to blow out all the PC brigade, this country has gone mad. Still at least I work in one of the last places of non PC the construction site and as long as I have breath I will say what I want, when I want to, whether its PC or not!!Long live Dustin

  2. Dustin – no thanks! But on second thoughts, he’d probably be an improvement on last year’s pitiful entry.

    Podge and Rodge would make a fine duo if only they could sing.

    If Dustin fails to get through the Irish final he could always do the commentary on the night and give Terry Wogan something to get excited about ๐Ÿ˜‰

  3. Les,

    Dustin does a wonderful cover of Enya’s ‘My heart is low’, called ‘Me kaks are low’ – inspired by builders’ trousers!


    Were Dermot Morgan not dead, Frs Ted and Dougal could have done ‘My lovely horse’ and would still have done better than last year. If you have Terry Wogan commentating, you must watch Eurovision on the BBC – Wogan’s sarcasm is the best part of the evening. We never watch the songs, just the voting!

  4. Actually, I think I’ll make sure I’m out that night ๐Ÿ˜‰

    But you’re right, Terry Wogan is the only bit worth tuning in to.

    On a completely separate note, I usually count down the days to the next 6 Nations match but I’m dreading next Saturday ๐Ÿ™

  5. I love Eurovision and always vote for something that hopelessly fails to win. The shameful thing is that even in these days of ghastly dance routines and and club pastiche there are usually several songs that I genuinely like. I can’t remember what I voted for last year. Andrew voted for the Ukraine, which I thought unremittingly terrible – but which came second.

    Not sure what I think about the turkey. I think Eurovision is funnier when people take it seriously.

  6. Alice,

    What are the criteria for taking it seriously? Musical quality? Definitely not. Lyrics? Hardly. The only standard is presumably entertainment value, the “I like that” test. Dustin actually does a very credible rendition of “The Fairytale of New York” with Dervla Kirwan!
