Speaking of Eurovision…

The following song was The Netherlands entry in this year’s Eurovision held over the weekend. I was saddened when it didn’t make it past the second semi-final. (What were you thinking, Eurovision people?)

The song is called “Ik Ben Verliefd (Sha-La-Lie)”. It was written by Pierre Kartner, the chap who wrote the music for The Smurfs.
