Irelands Eurovision entry

Recommended Posts


Without even hearing the song I can promise that it can kick the s*it out of most of the songs competing in Sweden. We have 4 semi finals (two songs from each goes to the final) and then an extra semi final where two more songs will join the final. With 3 semi finals gone and 24 songs heard I can say that I am ashamed. Most songs have been crap. Some have been mediocre and only a couple have been good. One song has been great though and I hope it'll win. Tomorrow I'm gonna see the 4th semi final and I hope there's some good songs then.

Oh, and I LOVE the ESC! woohoo.gif

God I hate that song. Sweden had like 2-3 better songs to send and we send a crap song with an obnoxious band and embarrassing clothing. icon_mad.gif

Come now Moos, who amongst us can honestly say we haven't been influenced by Boy George! icon_wink.gif

PS: what were the better songs? Got any links?

PPS: Moos, I remember a few years back there was a Swedish group for the Eurovision Song Contest (maybe short-listed rather than an actual contestant?) that looked and sounded just like a late 80s big hair band! (which I'm a fan of) Any idea who they are?

Can you remember anything else about them? Was it three girls?

Just want to point out that the "guy" on keyboard actually is a girl. So it wasn't so much as a gay orc as a dyke orc (sounds like a town in england) icon_lol.gif

Liam - I'm probably being very stupid but it hadn't occurred to me, until I saw this, that 'text talk' in Ireland would have it's very own idiom. Between your post and this above have certainly given me a chuckle this evening. I can hear them being spoken in my head. lol 431.gif takes me right back to my own Guinness days.

I've just heard the "real" version of Irelands entry and I've got just one thing to say:

YOU HAVE GOT TO BE F*CKING KIDDIN' ME! icon_eek.gif

It's a crap song that some idiots (irish fools no doubt) created for a laugh. A joke. Okay, I can accept that people make joke songs. Nothing wrong with that.

But who are the morons who let it enter the competition and who are the cretins that voted for it?

Surely nobody with half a braincell would vote for that sorry excuse for a song?

And I've just listen to some other songs that I guess will be in the ESC 2008 and those songs have been crap. The only decent song was sung by a guy who apparently doesn't know the english language. He pronounced words incorrect and therefore ruined the song.

Oh I hope Sweden will send a good song to save this competition sadwalk.gif

Finland's entry this year:

Not my cup of tea, but thumbs up for going for a song that is sung in Finnish. As a sidenote, hopefully they didn't pay anything for the director and the cameraoperators responsible for that clip above. It's ok to try different things, but that amateurish crappy look just isn't on. nono.gif

Surely nothing wrong in saying "irish fools". I don't mean that all irish are fools. I just mean that the people who wrote the song probably are irish and, in my oppinion, real fools.
