Do they yodel at the Eurovision ? (I): Intro

22 May 2008

Every year there is this über-camp, magnificent and extremely kitsch show in Europe (even if I wonder if Azerbaijan is still Europe ?): the Eurovision Song Contest. The big finale is this saturday 24th of May, with two semi-final on tuesday and thursday. And as strange as it seems, no Eurovision is complete without yodelling, well almost (I didn’t find one yet this year).

I will try to make a list of entries with yodel over the years but first a song about the contest by Neil Innes, an English writer and performer of comedy songs. And there is a yodel ! On his site you can find the lyrics and chords.
