We aren’t the winners of Eurovision! We’re not, We’re not!

Rejoice and celebrate, for it’s Eurovision time! Unless you’re a Doctor Who fan, in which case I’m sure you won’t be reading this and will instead be on the internet forum of your choice, registering your objection in a calm and measured manner.

The song’s a bit crap, but Scooch do win bonus points for incorporating the imagery of airline stewards into their act — a motif which is sadly lacking in today’s music scene — and for the unsubtle backing vocals: “some salted nuts, sir?”; “slip it over your head, pull firmly on the red cord and blow”; “would you like something to suck on for landing, sir?” and the less exciting “would you like a complimentary drink with your meal, sir?”

They lose points, however, for actually doing “flying plane” actions with their arms, which nobody over the age of ten should ever be seen doing in public.

I’m going to go out on a limb and say we’re not going to win this year.

    They’re complete shit. I can’t believe any sane adult being sat down and thought “Backing vocals that are exact snippets of things real airline attendants would say! And have someone vomit during the video! YES! THIS IS A WINNER!”
