Vote! Your favourite Eurovision song from Ireland - Round 5!

Tuesday, April 29, 2008

The vote continues to Round 5. This round is the Something of Something round. Now, I'm not suggesting Irish songs are formulaic, but these 4 have titles structured blah of blah. But which is your favourite?

How about Ireland's first ever Eurovision winner? Wee Dana from Derry with All Kinds of Everything. Bless her little cotton socks!



Or what about Pat McGeegan's effort from 2 years earlier? He sang about his Chance of a Lifetime.

Ireland really were on a Something of Something roll in the late 60s when 1 year later, 1969, we sent the lovely Muriel Day with The Wages of Love. What a great name! Amazing dress! Brilliant key-change bit!

Next up, a jump of 30-odd years to 2000, and the very timely Millennium of Love by Eamonn Toal and his hair.


So! Vote vote vote for your winner. NB: Should nobody vote (cough), Muriel Day will win this round hands down.

I prefer lively Eurovision songs.
I learned what a key change was from last year's Eurovision show.

You never got back to me about Friday! Want to meet for a bite? I think I'm going to wander around London after my essays are handed in, in the afternoon, so I'll be around when you get off work.
