From today's post title, you've probably already guessed today's featured song. But if you've not, feel free to read on.

Sometimes we get that hot hot favourite in a contest. You know the sort of thing: all they need to do is turn up and they have it in the bag. The other countries might as well not bother sending songs. The glitterati are booking hotels in a certain country over a year in advance, and people are working out what to do with their minimal winnings from this hot hot favourite. And then the hot hot favourite takes to the stage, completely underwhelms, finishes sixth, and we end up going to Lisbon instead. And who really begrudged Salvador his win?

Francesco is 36 today.

Buon compleanno, Francesco!
