The gang’s all here!
Recently I’ve had zero extra time on my hands to blog, which has been very painful considering all the Oslo stuff that is happening at the moment. Whilst I’m on a mid-semsester break now, I still have a looooooooot of catching-up on work to do, so I’ve decided that continuing my post below would not be wise – going into detail about all 39 songs, that is. Instead I’ve complied a list of my top 39, in order from my FAVOURITE to what I have deemed to be absolute drivel. Thay’re just my opinions, so I’d love to hear from you with yours.
Please note that this list will chop and change with my tastes between now and the contest (and a long time afterwards as well), and that, because I like pretty much all songs from 1-33, ordering my top 10 was veeery hard….so if your country isn’t there, don’t be offended, coz chances are I’m still a fan! I’d also like to apologise for any spelling/accent errors I make as I am typing this in a major hurry! I’ll be sure to fix it up ASAP.

Forgot the day, didn’t you?
Do mean it was April Fools’?? I can’t recall if I forgot or if I just couldn’t be bothered to think of a joke…eurovision.tv seems to make up for that!! I completely fell for the one they did this year.
I thought that at first! Especially as I think 09 was a brilliant year…..but now most of the somgs have grown on me and I think there’s some crackers! Having said that I agree that there is some crap in there! (in my opinion, Slovenia, UK etc). Let’s hope the UK’s remixed song is 100% better than the original!
This year’s songs are not that much good i think only Georgia, Turkey and Ukraine for the ears.
