Euro-Morrissey?


According to some reports, the great Morrissey from The Smiths may represent the UK at this years Eurovision Song Contest.

Somehow, I don’t think he’s being quite serious.  Although Eurovision would definitely benefit from being injected with some proper music instead of the usual tat.

Talking of music, I’m off work with a bad cold so I’m listening to some mellow sounds after having Lynard Skynards “Sweet Home Alabama” on repeat play for about half an hour. 😯

  1. It does seem to be serious, but Morrissey is absolutely the wrong choice because his music simply doesn’t fit the Eurovision profile.

    If we’re going to use a star performer, which feels a bit like cheating, then better someone who makes singalong chorusy music with soppy lyrics – how about Take That?

  2. I LOVE Eurovision. Me and my old housemates use to watch it together and make it into a drinking game. It was so much fun. The German enteries are always the funniest and I mean funny haha

  3. Yes, the Germans don’t seem to take it at all seriously. At least I assume they’re joking.

    I like Eurovision too, in a tongue-in-cheek sort of way, and I also like Morrissey, but it doesn’t follow that one would be right for the other.

  5. Pocket, we love it too. Me and my younger daughter make a big evening of it. it’s great fun, if only to laugh at the some of that dreadful talent.

    Yes, I think MrZ’s right. Morrissey would raise the standard of the contest which means it would lose its cringe factor and the *big cringe* is what makes it such fun to watch.

    MissLionheart, I wonder if Morrissey’s comments about the Eurovision were meant slightly mockingly and have just been spun by the press.
