I’m not trying to start a war or anything, but if Austria thinks I’ve forgotten how they rolled over and played dead when the Germans started to huff and puff they are greatly mistaken. And the latest member of the Von Trapp family, Conchita Wurst just adds insult to injury. The transvestite singer, otherwise known as Tom Neuwirth won the Eurovision Songcontest, the popularity contest cum zenophobic cook out of contemporary bland musical malfeasance.
Anyway, Conchita Tom won the Eurovision Song Contest and let’s be honest, I didn’t riot at the Stonewall Inn so this guy could win a crap contest with a song so terrible Celine Dion should cover it. “Rise Like A Phoenix” starts like a John Barry Bond song, all height and bombast and then crashes and burns.
I wonder who listen to this terrible overdrawn bombastic bullshit and thinks, “Wow, this is the best song in Europe (which now includes Russia for some reason).
I asked Feriel Lababedi, who wrote about the contest for us last week here, but she begged off saying she hadn’t one kind word to add to what she’d said. Me? That doesn’t bother me. This is the very very pits. Please, never let me hear it again.
