Ever since 1995 I’ve wanted to submit an entry for the Eurovision Song Contest. One of the rules they have is a three minute time limit on the song, which my love of prog rock seems to have prevented me from writing! Anyway last year I did actually come up with an idea for a song, partly inspired by Shakespeare anniversary and partly by political events – Romeo and Juliet as a metaphor for Brexit.
I had great fun recording the song with Cherry Morello – alas it didn’t get selected (and from the Song For Europe show it seemed the UK song selectors were determined to go for a tepid ballad number). See what you think!
