My Secret Combination Is A Mystery For You

For all the North Americans who don’t avidly follow the Eurovision contest, here’s a link to the Greek entry. Warning – Whether you like pop music or not, it’s guaranteed to get stuck in your head! By the way, the singer’s name, “Kalomoira,” means “good-fated.”

Kalomoira Eurovision

My secret combination is a mystery for you,
Use your imagination, I’m not easy but I’m true.

UPDATE: Ach, kakomoira Kalomoira! It’s a conspiracy, I tell you!

    Too bad she didn’t win! I like this a lot better than Sarbel’s entry last year.

    Yes, his Yassou Maria was pretty forgettable. I had to search to remember it.

    but i think she deserved to win – when the UK votes a song as the best, i think it means it really is the best – everyone else’s is just political voting!

    thanks awfully for voting for me – and thanks for being the first to mention pollard’s book – i’ve started reading it!

    After carefully considering her song, and then the song that actually won, yes you’re right, she should have won 😉 Gotta love the Eurovision song contest whatever happens though :)

    I love Europe but Eurovision has been the epitome of Kitsch. I wish Kalomoira all the best, she’s a great gal but Eurovision is gonna go the way of the dodo.

    When I was in Athens 2 years ago Eurovision was being hosted. Being Canadian I do not speak Greek but in the evening if the television was on I could watch the contest:D

    Peter, I think the the kitschy aspect is actually what I like about it! I’m not at all into pop music, so there has to be something else for me!

    Val, isn’t it amazing how YouTube has exploded since then?

    Lulu, I like that aspect too, but in the same way I watch the American Idol Auditions.

    I think the Spanish entry in the contest is hilarious…look! lol

    Peter, that is funny! In a very weird way!

    I’m a few days behind the rest of you but I had to pipe in. I thought Kalomira did a great job. My husband is convinced that her stiff dance moves blew it for her. He said, “what is that? what the heck is she doing?” …when she performed. I could only laugh…and agree.

    Cheryl, I guess that does make more sense as an explanation than “It’s a conspiracy!” :-)
