Eurovision 2008 - Chig's 32nd favourite song

Oh dear, have we reached it already? Yes, I'm afraid it's time for a bit of British stiff upper lip as we graciously accept the sad fact that the next favourite song in our count-up is our own.

United Kingdom - 'Even If' - Andy Abraham

Let's remind ourselves of Andy Abraham's performance in Eurovision - Your Decision.

Since then, they've improved the intro and made the whole song a bit funkier. It's a pleasant enough song, sung by a really nice guy with a voice in which I have complete confidence. He will no doubt give a cracking performance, in the slot of doom, song two.

However, here's the crux of the matter. No one can remember the song. It just doesn't stay in your mind after hearing it and took many, many hearings before I could remember the tune. In Eurovision terms, this is a looming disaster. It's not so-called 'political' voting. It's not the war in Iraq. We're presenting an unmemorable song, without the advantage of anyone hearing it before in a semi-final, due to our suicidal insistence on having an automatic place in the final, and no one can remember the song. Doomed, doomed, doomed.
