    Hello all,

    6 weeks until Eurovsion 2013! To celebrate, each day I'll be posting a track from its 57 year history, denoting the mediocre, horrible, and the downright ugly from this seemingly never-ending event. (If others want to post/comment feel free to do so!!) :)

    The Euro-vision song contest brings a whole new meaning to the term cheesy , I'm never quite sure whether some of the songs are a piss-take , I find it hilarious just quietly . :rofl:

    should be interesting.

    a fair few of the songs are very good.

    although apparently a fair bit of politics is involved, which is really the only downside.

    SBS better be showing it again
