Eurovision 2010: The lyrics

I'll be heading out to Norway for the Eurovision Song Contest next month and, as part of my "research", I've been creating a word cloud from this year's lyrics. It's not 100% finished (I'm still trying to track down English translations for the Macedonian and Slovenian songs) but I thought you might want to have a look.

The cloud was created using Wordle, the lyrics came from the official Eurovision site, and I got some of the English language versions from lyricstranslations (although we'll get professional translations for the final version).

I haven't had the time to listen to all 38 entries yet - but two already stand out. First up is Azerbaijain's BIG BALLAD.

Second is the Dutch entry - which wins bonus stars for conforming to every Eurovision steretype in the book. It is so rubbish it might just win.
