Tuesday Tunes‬ #199 – 2015 Eurovision Song Contest

Vienna2015_logo Well that is the Eurovision Song Contest over for another year. Did you survive your drinking games? “And our 12 points go to … Australia!” – thanks to Sweden, Austria and the United Kindom.

Yes, we know it’s a song contest but it’s impossible to take the politics out of Eurovision – that’s part of what makes it so interesting. Neighbours will always vote for neighbours (unless they’re at war) as their musical affiliations and histories are intertwined – no sense booing that. We expect the Scandinavian, Baltic, Eastern European and Balkan nations to vote for those nearby but at the end of the day good songs always rise to the top. ❞ — [SBS]
