Iceland should have won Eurovision 2019


They get bonus points for reflecting my mood so well.

English lyrics:

The revelry was unrestrained
The hangover is endless
Life is meaningless
The void will get us all

Hate will prevail
Happiness comes to an end
For it is an illusion
A treacherous pipe dream

All that I saw
Tears ran down
All that I gave
Once gave
I gave it all to you

Multilateral delusions
Unilateral punishments
Gullible poor fellows
The escape will end
The emptiness will get us all

Hate will prevail
Europe will crumble
A web of lies
Will arise from the ashes
United as one

All that I saw
Tears ran down
All that I gave
Once gave
I gave it all to you

All that I saw
Tears ran down
All that I gave
Once gave
I gave it all to you

Hate will prevail
Love will die
Hate will prevail
Happiness comes to an end
For it is an illusion
A treacherous pipe dream

Hate will prevail

At the final performance in Israel, they also whipped out a Palestinian flag at the end…triple score! How could Eurovision have given the win to the Netherlands, especially since all they had to offer was treacly pablum?

    The official video is good, too.

    This sounds like something my sons would have been playing nonstop back in the day, so there’s a nostalgia factor, too.

    I think I’ll play my Henry Mancini’s “Hatari!” It gotta somewhere be somewhere near in my old dust pile!

    ;-)

    Treacly pablum winning Eurovision? I am shocked — shocked! — to hear of such a thing.

    Eurovision 2011 was kick-ass. They been pretty dull ever since. Just google “eurovision 2011 opening”. It’s the best thing in the history of eurovision and that’s because they didn’t just perform the 2010 winner, they rearranged it and brought the house down. Even the rest of the show was pretty good.Ukraine had an amazing artist Kseniya Simonova, who produced a series of sand art pictures live during the song. Bloody camera kept cutting back to the singer, who cares about her? Moldova was a hoot too. Of course, some treacly pablum won.

    Word is these guys did pretty well at Italia’s Got Talent:

    Makes want to kick Republican butt.

    Of course Useless Tube had to edit out the Palestinian flag. Can’t have the truth making Israel look like a terrorist Apartheid state can we?

    “How could Eurovision have given the win to the Netherlands, especially since all they had to offer was treacly pablum?” The winner is decided by a jury vote plus a popular vote. The problem with voting is of course the voters. See Brexit, Trump, Orban, Salvini … we got off lightly with treacly pablum.

    I accidentally switched on the semi finals and was impressed with how much the dude kept missing the high notes.
    Hatari is at least tge trashy fun that is the only redeeming feature of the ESC
