A Reason to watch tonight's Eurovision Song Contest; Ieva Zasimauskaitė - When We're Old - Lithuania
Cannot believe I watched the first semi-final of the Eurovision musical jamboree complete with strobe and garish effect flimmering the whole way through. But sadly I did.
For something to occupy my distraction I made some notes, now thankfully deleted, as it went along.
The end result was that I woke this morning with the anti-war hit 'Neunundneunzig Luftballons', a song from Nena (1983) and known as 'Ninety-nine Red Balloons' in the English-speaking world, floating gently through my mind.
So what does it all mean?
This thing is past its sell by date or I am?
Let's face it. It was always so.
One grows old.
Nostalgia ain't what it used to be.
Thank you Ieva Zasimausekaite.
And congratulations on reaching the final.
