Neil Hannon gives his perfect recipe for a good Eurovision hit, and for each ingredient cites a rewarded song:
- a good beat, with France Gall's 'Poupée De Cire, Poupée De Son' of which the drumroll inspired him 'Something For The Weekend'
- many key changes, with 'Halleluja' by Milk & Honey
- meaningless lyrics, with 'Diggi-Loo Diggy-Ley' by Herreys
- being etheral (Irish), with Eimear Quinn's 'The Voice'.
He then offers a Eurovisionish hit of his own making, accompanied by Andrew Skeet on keyboard, Tim Weller on drums and Jonathan Noyce (Jethro Tull, Archive) on bass.
