Shine And Let Shine

Hi (furry)furriends💗

I’m ready to make some noise

for the mewsic, Granny…

with this week’s Theme:

65th anniversary of the Eurovision Song Contest

created by this month’s honorary co-host

John of The sound of one hand typing…

I have to admit that we Granny liked to watch it

every year…

she even stayed at home for it

because it was such an exciting event…

but the older she got

the more she watched it occasionally

or not at all…

like last Caturday…

it was awful…

we only had seen the finals

…Thank Cat!…

but that was more than enough…

Purrsonally we found the other Rock Band

much better

than the winning one…

although we would rather have seen

The Rolling Stones or Metallica

or our favourite Cure…

Unfortunately they weren’t in it…

so we had to deal with

what we got…

and besides…

Granny’s sister was here…

to sit visit for the weekend…

and they did more talking…

than watching…


I have fo finish my paws

before I can

switch on the mewsic…

first things always come first…

no matter what…

now let’s hit the dance floor…

with my collection of

Songcontest winners over the years…

that we still hear on the radio sometimes…

Apres toi – Vicky Leandron (Luxembourg 1972)

What’s another Year – Johnny Logan (Ireland 1980)

Hold me now – Johnny Logan (Ireland 1987)

Nocturne – Secret Garden (Norway 1995)

and here’s the second place winner of Spain…

that we liked more than the winner…😸

Eres Tu – Mocedades (second place Spain1973 )

and there were more beautiful songs

in the past…

but we want to add just one more…

one that is an “all time winner”

in our opinion…

because it still matters in this world…

Ein bisschen frieden – Nicole (Germany 1982)

Here she sings it in different languages

so if you can’t understand German

you sure can after this song…

♪♫♪☮🕯Have a Wonderful Wednesday my furriends🕯☮♪♫♪

🙏Stay Safe Healthy and Yourselfie🙏

    Your reporting is fab, Little Binky!! Glad all your paws were meticulously cleaned into a spotless state! The better for all your sweet pawkisses:)

    Oh my….we’ve never seen Eurovision either but I bet your favorite songs were better than the ones other people THINK are the best. It’s often that way – it sure is here !! I do believe you must have the cleanest paws in the universe – I do a lot of paw cleaning myself. Thankfully I keep myself in good shape and have escaped the dreaded BATH so far in my five years!

    Hugs and love, Teddy

    I enjoyed listening to your golden oldies. Thanks for sharing. High paws lots of love.

    Binky! What a terrific post! We LOVE all the music too! And quite often those who should win don’t. And Binky, we love all the photos of you! You are drop dead gorgeous!

    Yes, Rolling Stones and Metallica would be much better to watch. I haven’t watches Eurovision for years. Everyone votes for their neighbouring countries, not who is best. We won’t mention the UK entry though!

    Binky, as a native of the United States, I can hang my head in shame because so few Americans have heard of Eurovision. I had but only because in my music blogging. I did watch most of the finals this year – finally we were able to see this on a streaming channel this year. Finally! We don’t get exposed to it on the radio, either, although portions of Eres Tu sounded so familiar – sure enough, this group had an English Language adaptation (not a straight translation of the Spanish lyrics) of the song called Touch the Wind, in either 1973 or 1974. Apart from that, my favorite of your selections was Secret Garden. This theme was such an education for this American.

    Talk about shine. Your paws must be so clean that they were shining brighter than the sun! Very thorough job, Little B.

    Love and licks,

    Funny how the winners aren’t necessarily the best one. I agree.

    It’s always good to see you, Little Binky.

    Thank you for joining the Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Wordless Wednesday. Pawkisses to you and a hug to Granny. ♥

    My cats insist I leave plenty of purrrrrrs, I’d let them type themselves but they re preoccupied with paws and other feline necessities I as a mere human have no clue about.
