Sharing the joy...

I've had German's entry in Eurovision bouncing through my head all day. It's a perky, cheesy song which makes me happy, and you too can listen to it, either via the BBC's low res video streaming or the higher-end Windows-only options on Eurovision's official site. Belgium's song was very good, with a new age vibe (in a made up language, no less), and Austria's is insanely zany. Turkey's was solid (and won). Most of the rest are more generic entrants, although I've had Poland's and Sweden's entries drifting through my head off and on as well.
