OK, I’ve heard some really, really bad Eurovision songs in my time. But this, well, this takes the biscuit. Facebook, uh oh oh – is that the sound of the poor bloke on the keyboard being forced to twinkle on the keys at knifepoint?
Unfortunately it was banned because of the lyrics, and the song name; it was too much of a commercial for Facebook apparently – who’d have thought. It was later revised to be “The Social Network Song”, and no that’s not any better either. In fact it might even be more annoying, plus I’m sure I heard the words “sex machine” in there somewhere.
With our very own tactical deployment of the Engelbert Humperdinck, and the possibility of this beauty making it into the final round, this year’s Eurovision is turning out to be an absolutely must watch. Or a must avoid, of course, at all costs. [YouTube]
