I am dancing with the fairies now

Spirit in the Sky

Scandipop. That's what I like. Fun, bouncy, carefully crafted caffeiney disco-pop songs that pick you up when you're having a bad day. Like Abba or Agnes or Dolly Style or Robin Stjernberg or the A*Teens. I mean this Sigrid album this year is wall to wall scandibanger. And do you know what I don't mind from a place like Norway? Three minutes of miserable Nordic Noir, like BBC4 meets Jar of Hearts. Like this or this or this. That would do too.

Don't be afraid to spread your wings and fly

The country formerly known as the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia but now known as North Macedonia has only managed to qualify once in the past decade, and even then they didn't deserve it - belting out a balkan trouser-suit ballad that I managed to miss in its entirety as I took a carefully timed three minute wizz (air).
