Netherland’s Eurovision 2009 Entry

De Toppers have debuted their Eurovision song, “Shine,” and it does not disappoint.†

Is this not the most chipper darned song you’ve ever heard? It makes “It’s A Small World” sound like Fields of the Nephilim. I imagine that the stage production will get tweaked a bit for the big show. Ideally, the stage should be flooded with kids dressed in traditional costumes. And those costumes will be covered in sequins, of course.

And remember: “Love will make us glow in the dark!”

† I originally linked to a demo of the song that was posted on YouTube. When that got taken down, I replaced it with the official video, which was released later, because OH MY GOD THIS VIDEO IS FREAKIN’ AWESOME.
