Today we bring you a song that exists in *many* languages, and most of us probably think it sounds best in our own language. No matter which language it is performed in, though, it is sure to bring the Christmas spirit.

Jari Sillanpää represented Finland in the 2004 Eurovision Song Contest in Istanbul. He performed “Takes 2 to Tango”, finishing 14th in the semifinal, with a total of 51 points, thereby not qualifying for the grand final.

I'm Norwegian, presently living in Iceland. My mom loves Eurovision, and always let me stay up to watch the contest since before I can remember, so I'm "second generation Eurovision lunatic". My musical god is David Bowie, so I'm obviously not into the stereotypical Eurovision songs. I prefer the rocky/bluesy/jazzy/ethnic songs over schlager and mainstream ballads, though I occasionally surprise myself (and others)... I HATE canned drums and "Cvet Z juga". Photo © Tobias König
