But one of these days you’ll realise Eastern Europe is in your genes

Just when you thought you could escape my random choices, I’ve come back with a good one. You disagree? Well, it would be dull if we all liked the same stuff.

Cast your mind back to 2010, and our friends in Lithuania liked sending groups to our favorite TV show. Like this one. A nattily dressed group of singers, telling us that it’s Eastern Europe that keeps the rest of the continent moving. Do you think it’s true? Well, they are very diligent workers, and they make very good beers and other intoxicating beverages. This offering didn’t make the final, but it did show us that funk is still out there if you look hard enough.
