Now there's a lyric to mull over. Today's song was actually full of gems like that, and a fine song it is too.

Our friends in the United Kingdom of stuff have had a mixed amount of success over the years. The form might not be quite as good now, but it wasn't that long ago that they were finishing second. I'm sure you can name several occasions when this happened. Today's random video is such a song, and finished second in 1989 in the last contest where French predominated. Fronted by a Maltese no less. And second by a tiny margin of seven points.
