Tom: “No other song,” says our reader ‘Bunnyunplugged’, “has made me laugh as hard as the lyrics to this little gem.”
Tim: I actually remember really liking this one when it was on, so be careful what you’re about to say, please.
Tom: Really? Well, it takes all sorts. They are pretty terrible lyrics – “You will be the sun into my raining season” particularly – but I reckon this song is better noted for its choreography. Bit of traditional Greek dance? Sure. Boy-band manoeuvres? Okay, throw ‘em in. Making all the backup dancers lie down in the shape of a number 1? Why not.
Tim: Hahah, yeah, okay, that is pretty ridiculous.
Tom: If you want a Eurovision song to laugh with, you can do no better than Lithuania, 2006; Ukraine, 2007 or even Germany, 1998. But if you want a Eurovision song to laugh at… well, any better suggestions?
Tim: Eurovision I’m not sure about, but for unintentional humour you’d have to go a long way to beat R Kelly’s 22-act ‘hip-hopera’ Trapped in the Closet. Believe me, it’s worth the time.
Tom: Oh dear. That was once screened in its entirety at a cinema in London. I’m told it was… an experience.
