  1. A lively little ditty. Not politically correct though for the purposes of contemporary eurovision. The countries who voted chose others, as will be the case in SF2, and the Final. Nothing changes. Eurovision, as I remember it, (WHEN IT MATTERED NOT RE POLITICS ) IS LONG DEAD. MAYBE ONE DAY, WE`LL ACTUALLY HAVE A SONG CONTEST BASED ON THE SONGS, SINGERS, AND MUSICAL CONTENT, AS IT USED TO BE, AND NOT THIS POLITICAL CHARADE, AS IT IS NOW!
