If you need a pick-me-up...

...or if you need a distraction...

check out the Eurovision Song Contest Media Player

It's got videos for all the 2007 song contest entrants. I've been listening to the songs (about 2/3 through), and you need to check out:

Belgium (cheesy)
Bulgaria (chalga)
Switzerland (train wreck)
Germany (loungey)
Denmark (queer)
United Kingdom (almost as queer)
Israel (darkly humorous)
Ukraine (buh-wha?)

Only perhaps two or three songs are completely horrid, and Switzerland I think took the prize for the worst (even if it placed 20 out of 28 in the semis).

Serbia won, with something reminiscent of a Cirque du Soliel soundtrack. Ukraine took second (buh-wha?).

Well, the Swiss one was pretty good *looking*... but yeah, utter train wreck musically. But Ukraine... umm, WTF? And the UK one was only slightly less insane. I'm not sure I should be thanking you for linking to these.

Ukraine was the stillborn love-child of They Might be Giants and Devo.

I've only looked at Denmark so far.

My favorite headdress style is the purple, but the red dress is the most gorgeous - and it wouldn't be as good with the purple headdrees style. It's very "Hello Dolly" at the Hermonia Gardens (and not Barbra's horribly chosen yellow-green).

I really don't like the blue dress, the bunching at the bottom makes her look cut off.
