What's Hot: Music

It's that time of year once again. The time of the year when men don tight shirts (ooh la la), women wear feather boas, and all the colours of the world are on display. Yes, you've guessed it. The campfest that is known as the Eurovision Song Contest, taking place this year on May 20th.

The even more exciting news? The UK actually has a half-decent entry. Total unknown thirty-something Daz Sampson's rap track, 'Teenage Life', features schoolgirls who sing the chorus and dance around desks in their uniform. Despite being rather pervy -- oops, I mean, 'suspect', the tune is actually rather catchy in a weird sense. It also has admirable messages, but it's Eurovision so who on earth gives a damn what the songs mean?

Nevertheless, this makes my current ITunes Top Ten:

1. The Beatles - Something (NE)
2. Madonna - Human Nature (NE)
3. Don Mclean - Vincent (NE)
4. The Cranberries - Zombie (NE)
5. Madonna - Dear Jessie (U1)
6. Anthony and the Johnsons - River of Sorrow (D5)
7. Pink - Stupid Girls (D2)
8. Daz Sampson - Teenage Life (NE)
9. Westlife - Uptown Girl (NE)
10. Sinead O'Connor - Nothing Compares to You (NE)
