My Life in Song - Eurovision

Over at Charlotte's Web I saw this lovely post, and it made me smile. A compilation of music she's seen live, has loved, has a special meaning, etc. I am not the biggest music person, I can happily listen to most things on the radio, I'm not the kind of person who will change the channel because of a song. I've also never been able to answer the question "What kind of music do you like?". I've never quite understood why we have to define it to one or two sorts, can't we like a bit of everything? Anyways, despite not having any all time favourite artists or styles, I do relate a lot of different music to events in my life. I tend to attach smells, sounds and sights with certain memories, so I thought it would be quite nice to share with you every now and then songs that I relate to a certain memory. :) So that's what I am going to do.

Today I am sharing a song that reminds me of my last few years in High School. I final had a nice group of friends I could enjoy whole days hanging out with. It was nice. I had convinced them one year to watch Eurovision. So, we all went round to James' house (where we had most gatherings, the Australian Ambassador's place in Geneva is pretty awesome) and spent the evening watching Eurovision. Thankfully, they all enjoyed it, and it was a super fun evening. One song in particular grabbed the interest of most of the guys in the group, and for quite some time after they would re-enact the dance - them doing it in the pool is quite a fond memory of mine (I have photos, but will spare them the embarrassment!). Here is the Ukrainian contribution to the 2007 Eurovision:

Also, I absolutely LOVE Eurovision. :) It makes me happy inside.
