eurovision 2014

Post by Norc on Sat May 10, 2014 12:52 pm

i thought i'd make a thread for this years eurovision too .. every year i say that i won't be bothered with it, but then i find myself watching the semifinals and having the time of my life, laughing until i cry. Razz i've only seen the second semi final, because i don't like to watch if i can't vote. (and then i also have some surprises for the final Wink ) so, here's some of my favourite from the second semi final that didn't make it through to the finals.


the drummer looks like a chipmunk and the parachute drummer looks waaaay too serious Very Happy and it is so random. in the beginning there is a mix between joik, native american singing and yodelling, though the music is very advanced in comparison to the other submissions


and then there is poland... they went through to the finals... wonder why Rolling Eyes  (BOOBS)


also, norway went through, and i actually like this years song Smile it's not typically eurovision and when i first heard it on the radio, i didn't think it was this year's eurivision Smile and that is a good thing right scratch 


and there is (my bet) this years winner. Conchita Wurst. (I love this guy!! great singer and just awesome and catchy song, i like)


so tonight.. i'm gonna do a drinking game.
DRINK - 

  • for every violinist on stage you see. (double if it is a woman)
  • if u see a male chorist hidden away on the sideline
  • if u see an un-plugged -instrument. (or no mic)
  • for every modulation in the music (or as monty python has it "and then we change the keeeeeeeEEEEEY")
  • windmachine!!!
  • also if u see your own flag among the crowd 


open to more suggestions Very Happy 
and ofcourse.. i'll be spamming this thread while doing so Wink

also the Netherlands had a song with a beginning strangely familiar... 

(hint, every breath you take..)

the funny thing, i believe there was a song some time ago that also had a similar beginning.

Yeah baby! I'm home alone, so it will be non stop Eurovision and Shire time! Do I know how to party or what? Laughing 

I really like Conchita too! The voice! Fantastic! I think it is Austria and Norway which seems to stand out, maybe Finland.

But I haven't seen all the songs though. Seems the semi final I am watching have basically the same songs as on the one program of the series with Jenny Skavland and the 'jury' talking about the songs.

I *think* it is a good thing, but it seems there are few of those "typical" eurovision songs, it's all beat and pop.

I like that it seems to have become an annual thing to have/let Australia take part in one way or another. Smile

I think the Eurovision is camp enough already without letting the Ozzies in too  Mad

Not blown away by Ukraine's lyrics... Bonus for man in hamster wheel! Smile

...and not too fond of the Belarus Cheesecake song either. "I don't wanna be your toy perhaps today."  Rolling Eyes

Iceland was brill! But 'silent storm' gives me a good, mushy, relaxed feeling, .

Hear the cheers, that's got to be the Norwegians from danskebåten!

They really go through the songs in a hurry! No 10 minute introduction of each country, it's almost a bit stressful.

Piano wheel. Great pretend playing there, Romania  Rolling Eyes and.... Damn woman, breathe!  Shocked

Slight Kaizer's orchestra feel over the start of the Greek one. Then it's time to dance at the disco again.

Seems France has found inspiration from your Movember story, Norc.

Finland is a favorite too. Coldplay light I think someone called them. Jenny Skavland perhaps? Quite fitting. Wink
