Tom: Yes! Dansband!
Tim: No-one votes for it, it’d probably have tanked last night, but oh, just listen to this Norwegian studio audience. Though I think that might be partly the lyrics…
Tom: I’m, like, 90% sure that’s Norwegian Alan Carr there.
Tim: Well, prepare for the lyrics, see if they reinforce that. “I’ve fallen in love again, think I’ve found my soulmate; she’s tanned, she’s wet, beautiful and wild, I think you know who I mean.” Yup, so far so good.
Tom: I… I don’t know who he means.
Tim: Well let’s look to the chorus: “I want your mum, I want her lips on my cheek.” SCREAMS OF APPRECIATION, dancing all over the place, he’s the audience’s favourite by a country mile.
Tom: Hahahahaha, it’s amazing, it’s a three-minute your-mum joke, complete with a winking pianist.
Tim: That’s not the only good thing about it, of course: hell, I liked it even before I knew what the lyrics were, because it’s an enjoyable genre and it’s always nice to have a bit of variety in the mix. It also sounds truly heartfelt as he sings it, and the faces of those women at the very end make it all worth it.
Tom: I’m not sure there’s enough material in the music there even for three minutes, but who cares: that was one for the crowd.
Tim: All in all: music’s fun, lyrics are fun, IT’S ALL FUN.
