My secret

Do you have a secret thing you like to do? Just something that no one else knows you enjoy doing? I do, but it’s not going to be secret any longer, as I’m sharing it with you.

You see, I love Eurovision. Yes that’s right – the song contest. I love it all – the songs, the costumes, the mirror balls, the smoke machine and of course the wind machine. Last night I sat and watched the final – making sure I had stayed completely clueless as to who actually won it. (There are issues watching a show that has been delayed in telecast, and making sure I wasn’t told which song won, was my main aim yesterday).

But I love it. For that one night, Europe is brought together in song. And as the Swedes so nicely summed it up last night – We are One. And though I was a little upset that the rapping spacemen and Borg Queen hadn’t progressed from the semi finals (thank you Montenegro you gave me the best laugh I’d had in a very long time), it was still fun. There was Bonnie Tyler representing the UK, and the catchy Greek Ska of Koza Mostra featuring Agathon Iakovidis, all in one place! And a song written by a member of Black Sabbath’s guitarist too – which lent a little bit more of credibility to the show for my partner…….

And I have to admit – while I’m telling you about this secret – I loved the host this year – Petra Mede – she was funny, and such a breath of fresh air. And I truly love the Swedish sense of humour too!

So there we are – my little secret, I watch Eurovision every year. I love it!, For me living in Australia there is something very special about listening to short songs, often sung in languages I’ve  never heard before for example Eyþór Ingi Gunnlaugsson’s Ég Á Líf – what more could a girl want a Viking singing????

Because there are times in your life, when you need a little bit of escapist fiction, and Eurovision provides this in bucket loads. Long may Eurovision continue!
