Eurovision 2008 - Chig's 41st favourite song

Israel - 'The Fire In Your Eyes' (Ke'ilo Kan) - Bo'az Ma'uda

"My soul is hoping for the warm heart's pray."

I beg your pardon?

"It's hard, so hard."

What's hard? Your soul? Or your warm heart's pray? (Whatever that is.)

"When there's a yearning in front of a moon,
It's here for a moment, and then disappears."

What disappears? The yearning? Or the moon?

"After it follows the sadness.
Sometimes the breeze brings a good, familiar and patting smell with it."

A patting smell? Isn't that what dog owners have on their hands? What the hell are you on about?

"Now I hear you singing."

Oh pur-lease. I'd rather not hear you singing, thank you very much.

On the plus side, Bo'az Ma'uda is quite cute, even if he does have more apostrophes than an Irish member of Hear'Say. Also, this was written by Dana International and a friend, bringing her back to Eurovision (we hope) ten years after her Birmingham win at my first ever Eurovision-in-the-flesh.

On the downside, well, just listen to it, if you can bear the whole three minutes. Who is going to vote for this?
