Sing along

A little over a week ago more than 100 million viewers watched the European Song Contest.
One must take it for what it is .. the search for a catchy (usually very cheesy) summer theme song ....
 glam, glitz and loads of flashing lights. This was how Abba was found mind you. 
I admit after years of teasing those near and dear for taking the time to watch it.. this year we ordered pizza and poured some drinks... must admit it is a laugh (sadly no Terry Wogan hosting here). 
The kids watched some of it too and these are their top choices...
(note of caution- even if you hate the song it is so catchy sometimes that you find yourself humming it)

My little magpie likes this one (Norway, yes really) Haba Haba

and the boy child likes this one Lipstick

Desctructo is split between  Maldova's 

and Denmark's pretty boy New Tomorrow

GO ahead, have a laugh if you missed that eventful evening!

The winner was the ultimate Eurovision sap (see here if you like).

My personal favourites were - Bosnia Herzegovina  and Switzerland's. 

Oh and Serbia's perky number (click here).

A Mini poll
Which do you like? (none does not count)


  1. Hmmmmmm. I'm with Kryn, if forced I think I'd go with Magpie, or Destructo.

  2. Hi Juniper
    I love your blog. This was most interesting as there is little interest in the Eurovision in North America. It is good when all the family become involved with a show. Your children sound unique and full of fun
    Have a lovely week in beautiful Malta.

  3. HAHA, Yeap, last year I watched the contest when we still lived in Croatia (I didn't agree with last year's winner, there were more talented singers, than the girl who won, but like you said, maybe it's about who has the most 'catchy' song.)
    I'm glad you posted some clips. That girl on the unicycle was amazing! I enjoyed the ladies from Serbia, I haven't seen the other ones, so I'm going to go and click over.

  4. Great Blog! I love it - you have captured Malta well. Thanks. Nikki


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment, I always enjoy reading them.
