As Europe heads to bed, our dear readers in America are getting comfy on their sofas for tonight’s televised circus — a.k.a., the first head-to-head U.S. presidential debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.
Eurovision makes everything better, so we hope these songs can help folks from both sides of the aisle come together amid the jeers, taunting and heated political debate. After all, Eurovision has a great track record when it comes to free and fair elections, right?
The U.S. election in song: A Eurovision playlist
Initially we were going to use Greta Salome to talk about the insanity of a certain Republican nominee and his proposals. But we thought that might be a bit too loaded.
Luckily we have another way to discuss Iceland 2016! If you’re on the voter registry, then odds are you’ve received more than a few calls from both camps trying to get your vote. You’ve no doubt heard them calling…
And when those people start asking you if America should build a wall and start suggesting that immigrants need to stay away, you can just pump up the volume on Pollapönk.
We hope Donald Trump and his supporters can take on the message of “No Prejudice”…
We know that Bernie Sanders fought his heart out, but in reality Hillary was anointed as the Democratic nominee before the primaries even started.
As she takes to the stage this evening, we can’t help but hear “You Are the Only One”. Well, not the only Clinton, because there is that other one.
Gary Johnson and Jill Stein — those candidates from the Libertarian and Green Parties, who will be lucky to rake in 5% of the vote between them — haven’t been invited to tonight’s debate.
If they had been invited, producers could have considered playing Slovenia 2006.
At some point in the evening, particularly for attendees who drank a little too much water before show time, Ukraine 2014 may start playing in their head. And it certainly will be looping for most Americans by November.
Why won’t the clock stop ticking?
And then finally, on that glorious November evening, the polls will close, the votes will be counted, and Hillary will hopefully be declared the winner (Eurovision may be apolitical, but I am not, and America doesn’t compete at Eurovision anyway, so cut me some slack….it’s called an opinion and you probably have one too).
The world will breathe a sigh of relief and “Say Yay!” that the American voters made a sane choice.
Although if Donald somehow manages to pull out a win, well then, it’s time to…
…and start howling into a wind machine like this one:
