It’s a great tradition on the channel #lisp to watch the Eurovision Song contest live transmission, make fun of participants, and get drunk in the process. From today’s news, it sounds like 2007 is going to be a good year for this kind of thing:
Unfortunately, Europe took the wrong lessons from Lordi: they’re now inserting monster references into their bovine love ballads. Sweden’s entry to Eurovision 2007 is this monstrosity, ‘Vampires Are Alive’ by DJ Bobo. I swear I’m not making that up. The lyrics go: “I am a vampire. I’m a slave./I sleep through the daylight, hence my grave.”
“Unfortunately”? “Monstrosity”? DJ Bobo?? Hah. Hahaha.
Update: Bruce O’Neel tells me that the DJ Bobo entry is not from Sweden, but from Switzerland. I was wondering about that. Also, note that the link above has an embedded YouTube video of the entry. I particularly enjoyed the “VAMPIRES!” chorus near the end.
