Rob Hubbard Hungarian Eurovision Riverdance Megamix

I’m a Eurovision Song Contest nut, and proud of it. I have the last four years worth of entries in circulation on my daily playlist, and some of them don’t half give you a feeling of déjà vu. One such song is Hungary’s 2005 entry, Forogj Világ by NOX, which bears a striking resemblance to Rob Hubbard’s soundtracks to the Commodore 64 games Commando and Warhawk. This mashup is the proof.

    With you being a huge Eurovision fan (personally I can think of better things to have in my music collection), I’m avidly awaiting a blog entry about the 2006 UK entry from Daz Sampson and his dancing midgets. It’s… uhm… interesting.

    Oh god yes. I haven’t been following the national selections all that closely this time, but I did stumble across that particular “gem”. The sight of a fat bloke prancing around in a school uniform was cringeworthy even by Eurovision standards. A year or two back I quite fancied the idea of writing my own Eurovision entry just to see how far it would get through the selection process (hey, it can’t be all that different from a demoscene music compo surely?), and this just reaffirms that I could probably do a better job than the crap the UK has been churning out for the last few years…

    Indeed. Daz Sampson makes Gemini look like Lennon and McCartney.

    IMHO there is no steeling here only an exaggerated comparison where some of the chords accidentally match. Neither the leads nor the basses bear much similarity. It’s quiet annoying listening to this mash-up. The Hungarian music on its own with its folkish elements is really nice though :-)
