28 July – The vote is in, I’ll freaking win

As you’ll have seen from our birthday feature, all kinds of song have been on that stage. Some are well-crafted songs that might be slow-burners. And then there are the others…

Today’s is a uniquely crafted song that attracted all manner of headlines. Not necessarily because it was an instant floor-filler. Or a slow burner that hits you after the twelfth listen. Who else but today’s birthday girl Silvía Night/Silvía Nótt (née Ágústa Eva Erlendsdóttir) could come up with it? Or who else could insult the hosts and get away with it? And who else could relish the heckles and boos that she received after she’d performed in that fateful semi-final?

Silvia is 39 today.

Til hamingju með afmælið, Silvia!
