You're not celebrating any longer, are you know?
on 20 May 2013
This is the official album from the 2002 Eurovision Song Contest in Estonia. As usual, the songs are a bewildering combination of the good, the bad and the *really* ugly.
Everyone who endured this event remembers "S.A.G.A.P.O." from Greece - relatively trivial as a song, but very, very bizarre as a live act. Imagine John Travolta and the other aliens from "Battlefield Earth" performing live on stage! Yes, it's that ugly. Another involuntary classic is the Spanish entry, "Europe's Living a Celebration", a tribute to the Euro and the EMU. Well, you're not celebrating now, are you? Slovenia sent three really boring drag queens - I didn't know a drag act could be boring?! In the ESC, everything is possible, it seems!
The better entries: Sweden, Estonia, France, Germany.
Eventually, the contest was won by the relatively anonymous Latvian entry "I wanna", mostly remembered because the singer Marie N changes clothes about three times in three minutes.
Not sure how to rate this, due to the immense variation of the songs included. Two-and-a-half stars in total?
