Time-Warp Tuesday: A Troll lot of fun for Russia
Contest: 46th, Copenhagen 2001
Song: Lady Alpine Blue
Artist: Mumiy Troll
Result: 12th (37 points)
Today we travel back ten years to Denmark’s last hosting (including all of those dreadful rhymes) and to one of the creepiest front men I have ever encountered. I don’t think I need to explain why this is, but in any case his face/voice doesn’t stop me from watching/listening to this song over and over again because it’s so quirky-awesome! It’s a rarity to see something a little left-of-mainstream-pop-rock-or-ballad, which I’m not complaining about – but only their 2009 and 2010 entries seemed to break that general mould. But Russia seems to do anything well (they aren’t half bad at putting on a Eurovision show either) and here’s another example…according to me. La la la lai, la la la lai…

An absolute tune. Amongst a collection which was, to be fair, pretty awful, this really stands out. Something of interest here, much like Brainstorm with slightly less time spent in the English Language classes.
MT were definitely Russia’s Brainstorm! It’s a shame they didn’t manage to do better in a relatively weak year.
