Angels and Eurovision Cry

Postby Sotos » Thu Feb 23, 2006 12:27 am

Why Angels cry? I don't know. But I know why we are crying after the song that they selected to represent us in Eurovision! I mean it was an OK song for people that like that kind of songs but too depressive for me. I preferred the "land of yesterday" that was partly sung in Cypriot dialect, or the "love on the weekend" or at least "congratulations". "Every time I close my eyes" was I believe the best from the slow songs. What was strange was the voting. Each district voted in the way that countries vote in the real Eurovision and the votes were TOTALY inconsistent. Some songs received 1 point from some districts and 12 from others :shock: Something very fishy was happening :evil:

She lived most of her life in Greece.

I have no idea why, but seing who got to represent Cyprus, I guess I can understand why.

Besides, Greece chose her already without going through the voting.
