Music Video Thursday: Eurovision 2007: "Unsubstantial Blues"

There's an old joke that goes something like this:

What do you get when you play a country song backwards?

You get your wife back, you get your truck back, you get your dog back...

Tonight's video, Hungary's entry for the Eurovision Song Contest 2007, makes me think of this joke, only it's not meant to be funny - Magdi Rúzsa's powerful voice underscores the moody video, run in reverse, for a very moving effect:

Looks like happy endings are only for backwards country songs, though...

Next Thursday (May 10) is the semi-finals in the Eurovision Song Contest, followed by the finals on Saturday (May 12). Catch all the action at!
