This had to happen eventually. Somebody has used Artificial Intelligence software to generate a Eurovision song based on hundreds of previous entries. Ladies and gentlemen, I bring you Blue Jeans And Bloody Tears...

Are you sure this isn't a Sparks b-side?

It's quite interesting that's what it sounded like - although I'm surprised that the word "bloody" was chosen so prominently by the algorithm, as it's not a word I would expect to be used regularly in the contest. I'd also like to know what songs were used to feed the algorithm - I feel that if they just used winners, and presumably also used non-English lyrics, it would have turned out very different.

There's definitely a hint of Sparks in there! Maybe we should get them to write next year's song for us.

Cool, but yes, knowing what songs were used to make it is important; especially since most Eurovision songs these days are written in a minor key, without key changes and are generally moodier.

It sounds like a Russian (or other ex-Soviet) entry from the late 00s.
