A fact you don’t know about Morrissey and the Eurovision Song Contest

Amidst all the burble about Morrissey being approached by the BBC to be this year’s Eurovision entry, it turns out nobody knows this:

Morrissey can name not just the winner, but also the second- and third-placed acts from its beginning.

This seems bordering on autistic, but apparently he was glued to it as a child.


  1. Awesome. My dad can give you the winner and runner-up of each FA Cup Final from 1946, the year of his birth. He’ll often remember the score too. Sometimes the half-time score.

  2. Maybe all that horrible cheesy music was what made Morrissey so bloody grumpy.
