I often mention in passing which contests I really like, and those which are, to be honest, a little meh. Obviously, even the contest with the lower quality will have diamonds in the dross. So that's why we we have to watch through the pain to get to the pleasure.

There are no birthdays of note today, so I've gone random. And this randomness features, in my opinion, the best contest of them all. A great set of songs from start to end, a great result - if you're Scandinavian, and the consummate host. I present to you the opening song from 1985. Enjoy.
