So, it’s Friday, and I would normally try and give you a great “weekend party starter”, but this week we’re picking songs we *don’t* like…which is also kinda fun sometimes. I do actually have a looooong list of “weekend party starters” I strongly dislike (Sweden 2005 and 2007, Romania 2010 and 2014 to name a few), but I just need to get something off my chest.

Believe me; I NEVER thought I would write about this song, *ever*! And the worst thing is; No one even held a gun to my head and forced me, I actually asked if I could (pretty please!) do it!

Okay, so I guess there have both been worse songs (i.e. lower in musical quality, like Moldova 2006) and worse performances (out of key singing, for instance Macedonia 2000) in the history of Eurovision but there has never been a song that has gotten more on my nerves.

Actually, it doesn’t just “get on my nerves”; when I listen to it (as if I would ever listen to it, ever again?!) it feels like all my nerve endings are on the outside of my skin and someone’s having a go at them with a steel brush.

I don’t have words to describe how much I hate this song, and since I know a lot of (otherwise fairly sensible) people who actually like it (beats me…) I’ll just let those of you who would like to (for whichever reason anyone would ever wanna do that?!) listen to the horror (sorry, it just slipped out).

 

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
