Over the decades Eurovison has brought so many great songs to life. I was truly a task to narrow it down to just ten. However I picked ten and then picked out my favorite lyrics from each.

1. Ne Ver', Ne Boisya, Ne Prosi - t.A.T.u. (Russia)

Ne zazhigaj i ne gasi.
Ne ver', ne bojsya, ne prosi.
I uspokojsya, i uspokojsya.

2. 1944 - Jamala (Ukraine)

Where is your mind?
Humanity cries.
You think you are gods.
But everyone dies.
Don't swallow my soul.

3. Yodel It - Ilinca (Romania)

So bring it on, bring it on, I’m a dreamer.
If you don’t believe it, come and see me, I will teach you.
If you never try, you’ll never be alive.
You are gonna miss out on this ride.

4. Line - Triana Park (Latvia)

All I see is you, all I see.
All I see is you, all I see.
Where we draw the line?
Tell me, babe, where we draw the line?

She’s singing softly in the night
Praying for the morning light
She dreams of how they used to be
At dawn they will be free

Memories they haunt his mind
Save him from the endless night
She whispers warm and tenderly
Please come back to me

And when the golden sun arises far across the sea
The dawn will break as darkness fades forever we’ll be free

Never forget what I did, what I said
When I gave you all my heart and soul
Morning will come and I know we’ll be one
Cause I still believe that you’ll remember me

She mourns beneath the moonlit sky
Remembering when they said goodbye
Where’s the one he used to know
It seems so long ago

And when the golden sun arises far across the sea
The dawn will break as darkness fades forever we’ll be free

Never forget what I did, what I said
When I gave you all my heart and soul
Morning will come and I know we’ll be one

Eurosceptic, analphabetic
Try not to be hermetic

Euro Neuro don’t be sceptic
Hermetic, pathetic, analphabetic
Forget all cosmetic, you need new poetic
Esthetic, ecletic, dialectic

Euro neuro, don’t be dogmatic, bureaucratic
You need to become pragmatic
To stop change climatic, automatic
Need contribution from the institution
To find solution for pollution
To save the children of the evolution

Euro neuro (Euro neuro)
Euro neuro – monetary break dance
Euro neuro (Euro neuro)
Euro neuro – give me chance to refinance

(Blaue grotte ausflug do Zanjica)
(Heute habe hobotnica)

Euro neuro I don’t like snobism
Nationalism, puritanism, I am different organism
My heroism is pacifism, altruism, I enjoy bicyclism
Liberalism, tourism, nudism, optimism
It is good for rheumatism

This album is the compilation of all 43 songs which made it to the final and semi-finals of Eurovision. With a rich cultural mix of languages (though English certainly dominates) and styles (ranging from a Capella to operatic pop) there’s something for everyone in this album. Despite the lack of the all-important visuals which are included in the live performances, most of the songs still manage to deliver well (with the marked exception of pseudo-mainstream attempts such as ‘Celebrate’), with their impressive vocals and melodies intact.
Generally considered to be a gimmick by those not well acquainted with the contest, the musical provender it provided this year belies this perception with valour, only being held back by Portugal’s entrants (comedians who chose to sing in Portuguese, which led all non-Portuguese speakers to take them seriously) and Moldova’s choice of gyroscopically-oriented colours and shapes.
I enjoyed listening to the CD because of the gorgeous cross-section which it presents of European music, void of an American plastic soul. The tunes are largely catchy (such as Denmark’s ‘New Tomorrow’) or poignant in their otherworldliness (such...

Melbourne, Australia - Each year, Australia holds a Eurovision weekend from Friday to Sunday where the First and Second Semi Finals are shown culminating in the Final show on Sunday evening. During the Final the Australian public get their chance to televote for their winner.


This year, the Australian public vote differed significantly from the European vote. All weekend there were huge Eurovision parties in Melbourne, Sydney and the other major Australian cities.
Although Australia cannot vote in the actual Eurovision Song Contest, each year the public do televote to decide their winner and in 2011 there are some surprise results :

-
1.Ireland 8350
2.Greece 7120
3.Serbia 4429
4.Bosnia & Herzegovina 4150

HOW IT ALL BEGUN
The European Broadcasting Union (EBU) was formed on 12th February 1950 by 23 broadcasting organisations from Europe and the Mediterranean at a conference in Devon, United Kingdom. It was on the 6th of June, 1954, that Montreux became the venue for the first transmission by the EBU's Eurovision Network of the Narcissus Festival and its flower-bedecked procession floats. The first Eurovision viewers eagerly watched on four million television sets in homes, bars, and shop windows in Germany, Belgium, France, the United Kingdom, Italy, the Netherlands and Switzerland.

AMBITIOUS PROJECT
In 1955, the EBU came up with the idea of an international song contest whereby countries, represeted by their respective public broadcasters, would participate in one television show, to be transmitted simultaneously in all represented nations. This was conceived during a meeting in Monaco in 1955 by Marcel Bezençon, a Frenchman working for the EBU. The competition was based upon the Italian Festival di Sanremo, held for the first time in 1951, and was also seen as a technological experiment in live television: In those days, it was a very ambitious project...

I was browsing through the picks and one question caught my attention the most, it was Ratdog's question: Do you think the voting is fixed or based on country's neighbours and politics?

I personally do believe that the neighboring countries vote for each other, however I think that it is inevitable for this to happen, not only because of language similarities. Its the culture in total that matters. For example, if you look at the scandinavian countries who vote for each other. They all have similar sounding languages which originated from the same branch. Also, generally speaking they seem to be interested in the same type of music: either hard rock, house/dance or swingy rock/pop. Sweden last year was represented by The Ark with their song The Worrying Kind which was in style similar to this year's song All Night Long by Simon Mathew, representing Denmark. Therefore it is unequivocal that countries with similar historical and cultural background will vote for each other. Scandinavia was one example, the Balkan countries are another.
