Friday Five Favourite: Eurovision 2014

16 05 2014

Eurovision is a bit of an event in our house, an institution almost, there is takeaway, there are snacks, and there is an epic spreadsheet scoring over various categories. Here’s how my top five ended up this year 🙂

#1 France: Moustache – Twin Twin

To be fair, we watched the show with the English subtitles, which made this so much better – complete nonsense 🙂

#2 The Netherlands: Calm after the storm – The Common Linnets

Not very Eurovision, but great!

#3 Denmark: Cliche love song – Basim

“the Bruno Mars one”

#4 Iceland: No Prejudice – Pollapönk

There were several songs about unity, equality, freedom and peace this year, not just standard pop – some good messaging!

#5 Malta: Coming Home – Firelight

“the Mumford and sons one”, also not very Eurovision-y but loved it

Special mentions to a few countries who did best in their categories but didn’t make my top five:
Azerbaijan for staging and costume
Spain for staging
Montenegro for choreography
Belarus for their song (called “Cheesecake”)
and Romania, for their circular piano!
