Who remembers Russia's entry to the 2007 Eurovision in Helsinki?

I certainly do.

Any other meanings are fantasies in the minds of those who can't see a 63 year old Pan-european song contest for what it is.

This event, just like the 2022 World Cup or the 1936 Olympics, will not in any way be used to whitewash the most nation. Perish the thought.

As someone posted the Israelis are going to have to turn the Eurovision music up really loud to drown out the screams of dying Palestinian children

The themes of war and conflict have inspired many a Eurovision classic, not least this one which went on to win the 1974 edition of this much loved song contest.

"My, my
At Waterloo Napoleon did surrender
Oh yeah
And I have met my destiny in quite a similar way
The history book on the shelf Is always repeating itself
Waterloo
I was defeated, you won the war
Waterloo
Promise to love you for ever more
Waterloo
Couldn't escape if I wanted to
Waterloo
Knowing my fate is to be with you
Wow wow wow wow Waterloo
Finally facing my Waterloo"
