Oh my God, yes.

I love Barcelona so much. Way back during the 92 Barcelona Olympics, this was on all the goddamn time, and I first fell in love with Freddie Mercury. I was 9, and he was dead a year. (Montserrat Caballé is pretty badass too, of course, but sadly it was harder to find out about opera singers when you only had pre-internet British media for knowledge.)

The orchestra really does lift it. To Itunes!

You can learn a lot about someone by the music they listen to. Hit
shuffle on your iPod or mp3 player and write down the first 20 songs. No
cheating or skipping songs that are shameful. That is the fun!

Music! )

It's the continuation of Robbie and Gary: Operation Kiss and Make Up.

And then they done sex.

As all of Europe says "please don't call in our loans."

Personally I preferred Denmark's, but at least the winner sounded like it came from this century. Yes, UK entry, I am looking at you, though finding out that it was written by Pete Waterman it does suddenly all make sense. Sadly, it is no longer the 1980s. Maybe next year we should just send Rick Astley doing "Never Gonna Give You Up," and at least pull off the worlds biggest Rickroll if we must come last.

It is nice to see that it is possible for an "old Europe" country to still win it. And Germany should put on a good show next year, since they can afford it and all.

Though favorite bit of the night was the Interval thing. Not quite Riverdance, but still a fun, simple idea yet really effective. Even though with the UK pre recorded bit we showed that we couldn't do that right, either.

In other news, I have the writing vertigo again. Stupid brain.
