A Tangerine Dream: Sing Dinge-Dong
I've never been a fan of the Italian national football team. For too long they've bored us with their ultra-defensive tactics; tactics which sadly have proved quite effective, as the last World Cup showed. So it was great to see them get their just desserts last night by the Netherlands, and to see the so-called masters of counter-attacking football, caught on the break not once, but twice!
The Netherlands' stunning victory provides us with a great excuse to remind ourselves of another international triumph for the Dutch- in the 1975 Eurovision Song Contest. Take it away, Gettie!
