The Full “Fantasy Eurovision Song Contest” Catastrophe Playlist 9/5/09

In TFC on May 9, 2009 at 12:47 pm

This week’s show is all about what might have been, the road not taken, the “you’re dreamin” approach to life.  In it, I wondered aloud and on CD about what some of the participants in the Eurovision Song Contest might  do if they let all  their creative juices off the leash!

 The result….not a single song with a title like “I wanna love you all night, my baby and make this dream reality and a heaven on earth” (Read out loud in an Icelandic/Bulgarian accent).

See what you think… Some familiar names, some devolutionary suggestions for the UK (and a rude one), some WW2 retro-irony and….some great tunes!!  And don’t forget that there’s heaps of Eurovision Song Contest gear on the “TFC Link Of The Day”.  Give it a click…. And next week: the ESC is celebrated in TFC style. And don’t forget the Caffe Latte part of the Eurovision equation
