hAFfi hAff hAff: The Wiggle Wiggle Song

Eurovision 2008 is upon us! Now is the time at the Flea when we dance.

Related: Ireland is entering a singing turkey. It is almost as if they are not taking it seriously this year (via Beautiful Atrocities).

Also in Europe: Greece, Poland, Germany and the Netherlands considered entrants singing in European. As did Azerbaijan singing a traditional Nightwishian folk-tune. Armenia submits a song as sung in the original Caprican. Baffling but true: The Latvian entry is worse than Ireland's. Also, Spain. New life goal: Take my show on the road to San Marino; I shall be a Rock God. Also, Andorra: Time to start issuing collectible Flea-postage. Bulgaria, also singing in European, needs to look up the word "genre". Finland shocks by considering a hair metal act singing in Finnish. The United Kingdom also shocks by submitting an entrant singing in English. Funky.

Astute Flea-readers will have noticed Eurovision has a certain "camp" quality. Take Greece again, for example. Or Russia (best cover ever). All I can say is there is Eurovision gay and then there is Man Meadow Eurovision gay. Related: Polish Kylie. Also related: Poland is making me feel funny inside. In a good way. And no need to for a dodgy line on the monthly credit card statement.

Second look at... Natasza Urbańska!

Update: And Sandra Oxenryd.

My God... it's like a continent-wide multi-car pile-up. I wonder if it will be broadcast over here and if so, can I trick my friends into watching it with me. They're into Standard American Rock (you know, Evanescence and such) so I am dying to see the looks on their faces.

I find it a little terrifying Flea-readers appear to be a consensus alternate entrant.

It's like watching the first three weeks of American Idol rejects

Which, I admit, are my favourite weeks.

But Natasza Urbańska is a goddess.
