There's something rather endearing about this song.  Very James Blunt-esque but in a good way.

I think the reason why I am not getting bored with songs is that I am not listening them very much. Actually, excluding the Finnish and Dutch songs, I have listened the songs only 2 times and if you would ask me to say my opinion about most of the songs, I should listen them first to be able to say something.  ;)

I listen to my top 10 quite a lot...but there's some of them I've only listened to twice - such as Serbia, France & Greece - none of which I like very much at all.

That's so nice to hear, Martial, but personally I'm too afraid to hope it... We're still Belgium after all, Flopland number 1 at Eurovision. Being in the final is already fantastic, a good position will be a bonus.

Surely Portugal and Finland are more Flopland number 1 than Belgium.  Tom is going to get a very good position and I think Martial is right that it will be Flanders' best result :wink:

Both Portugal and Finland have better results if you compare with Flanders. Flanders (and Belgium) never qualified for the final until this year. The best result for Flanders is a 7th place, we have to go back to 1977 with Dream Express, the year I was born  :D  Portugal reached a 6th place in 1996 and Finland won in 2006. If you compare with Belgium, the record seems indeed better, but this is mainly due to the RTBF (French-speaking) entries. I make a difference between Flanders and Belgium because we really do live in two parallel societies here in Belgium (even though I regret this very much, but that's another question...  :( )

After all the flops during the past years (with Xandee and Kate Ryan as superflops) I'm really too afraid to believe that Belgium will actually receive a lot of points. But don't get me wrong, I really adore Tom's song, he's a great singer, a cute guy and he gets more out of a song than there is in it. Anyway, we don't have anything to lose on Saturday, the fact that Tom is in the final is already a victory for my country.  :goodjob:

I must admit that I have never really thought about it that there's 2 distinct countries competing under 1 nation's name but when you put it like that then yes Flanders is Flopland #1.  Xandee was underrated but Kate Ryan got what she deserved IMO - on stage she had absolutely no charisma whatsoever.  Since Tom performed however there's been a real buzz about him and the song so I still think anything is possible.

The one thing in his favour draw wise is that he's following a rock song (Bosnia) & is followed by an uptempo one (Serbia)....but I kinda agree that he could've done with being later.
