Arnold George Dorsey To Represent the UK
It seems the younger generations are rather perturbed at the choice of Engelbert Humperdinck to represent the UK in this year's Eurovision Song Contest.
I was a 'Humperdincker'. His relaxed ballad style, quality of tone and immaculate dress sense wooed me and it seemed his success in the UK was assured when Release Me stayed top of the charts for months. That was not to be because his style suddenly dropped out of fashion and he moved to the US, from where he built a large following in many parts of the world.
His song has yet to be recorded but it has to be a ballad doesn't it?
Engelbert will become the oldest singer to ever participate in Baku, Azerbaijan on 26 May. At the age of 76, with no deterioration in voice quality, he is a credit to the mature generation (and perhaps a couple of cosmetic surgeons).
Go for it Hump!
