Eurovision Greatest Hits: Weil der Mensch zählt (Austria, 2003)

Oh my days it’s ALF! I remember being so excited watching this! I think this was the first year I’d worked out you could get subtitles up using the red button that actually translated the songs for you. Not only was this entertaining with a random rock riff thrown in at the end of the chorus, the lyrics were about hares and birds and cats pancake stripes (no, I don’t know) and “wool of the dromedary from Africa”. Amazing.

If you’re bothered, you can go and read about what it’s really about on the serious internets. I’m just here to enjoy those wiggly, thrusting hips and the cardboard cut-out animals.
