Monday 6th May, 2024

Good morning. I’ve moved my office into the back room to free up the middle room so I can now use that as a bedroom instead of sleeping in the front room. Therefore I’m covered in dust and sneezing. I promise you I will be cleaned up in time for tonight’s quizzes.

If you’re bank-holidaying then God Bless You and if you’re not then I hope you have the power to power through.

Meanwhile, I wish I was in Malmö for Eurovision but I can’t afford it this year. Congratulations to Quizmaster Bonni and various quiz regulars who have made it over to Sweden. Have a great week!

I hope a cheap country wins so that I have a better chance of going next year. I like Lithuania’s song. I also like Ukraine but I don’t fancy that as a destination, obviously.

Other ones getting the most play in this house: Italy, Netherlands, Finland. And I hate to admit it because they are so dominant at Eurovision, but I do like Sweden’s song, it’s probably the most polished of the dance bangers this year.

The UK song is dull, although there are apparently revisions to the recorded version which promise to make it better. Definite right-hand side of the board though.

Who are your favourites this year? Let me know.

Music Round Clue for Brass Monkey Drummond St:

Speaking of Swedes, this is SEPTEMBER, (real name Petra Marklund) and her fantastic song from 2007. This IS pop music. It’s perfect, and it’s in the music round at the Brass Monkey Drummond Street tonight.
