Eurovision is such a legend. No-one outside Europe understands it. :D

And at least one person inside Europe (mind you I consider myself English and therefore not really European  ;)  )

I could sum Eurovision up as a time when Europe improves international relations by being silly for one another, and one or two songs turn out to actually be pretty memorable.

The voting is a side issue, clouded by people who give a monkeys enough to pay for a phone call generally voting for their favourite country next door.

At least one pair of accordion obsessed American bloggers are hooked on the contest. Summing it up as a "magical world where hard-rocking monsters rule the earth and trannies, drag queens, and lesbians are allowed, nay, encouraged to perform incoherent dance songs in front of an audience of millions". A perfect description if ever I read one.

As with canal en octobre this excellent idea might benefit from lying fallow for a few months ;)

habemus Papem!

I'm no catholic, but it seems they are as surprised as me at the man elected.  How about a tune, or interpretation to welcome the new prelate? 30 minutes in, there's already 20 google look ups and a 5 page Wiki on him.

Idea is that you give your own interpretation, be that "welcome Holy Father ", some plain chant,  "not another bloke!", "tango in Rome" (there's a Jacques Brel song), even "don't cry for me Argentina" - just a few ideas to set us off.  You have to do it in music. Given he's only been in post an hour, seems a good start. What do others think?

To those who feel this too risque, why not?

I think it is best we leave religion, politics etc out of mel.net

Eurovision tunes would be great, but it'd help if there were sheet music or ABCs available.

Don't know if anyone have already suggest it, but i fell in love with "Cuckoo's nest", and quite in the same time i fell in love with border morris because they've got the best costumes (totally subjective personnal taste), so :

They were all of course of the degenerative style of  border morris, the tune and the proper dance come from the superior Cotswold style  >:E

I dance for one of those 'degenerative' sides... but I still used Lester's tune a day video to help me learn the tune :)

If Cuckoo's Nest hasn't already been done as a TOTM then I vote for it too. I absolutely love this tune, to play and to dance to :)
