Josh Dubovie Will Sing Mike Stock And Pete Waterman's UK Eurovision Jam

Well, the dust has settled on the BBC Your Country Needs You special (read a full assessment over at Fizzy Pop), and it's now time for Scooch to step aside on my iPod—because the UK now has possibly the country's downright cheesiest Eurovision entry in years. Actually, who am I kidding? It could stand to be a lot cheesier—and to have a better chorus.

But oh, well. Here's Josh Dubovie singing Mike Stock and Pete Waterman's "That Sounds Good To Me":

At least it's better than The Sheilas—or is it? I'll have to marinate on this trash for a hot minute, but upon first (five) listen(s), it sounds like Kylie's "The One" meets Steps' cover of "Last Thing On My Mind." Not necessarily a bad thing, mind you...

    i think i may be the only person in the world to love it first play! haha. I should stand proud with that, even though i know it's total tosh. But it's my type of total tosh and takes me back to a simpler more innocent time :P

    Umm, are we sure that isn't Joe McEldery? I'm not convinced it isn't...

    Well we won't win this year then. Josh was teh best of the singers - the quality of which was so bad watching Channel 4 's Embarrasing bodies with women with bladder weakness and inverted nipples was a more satisfying proposition.

    That doesn't sound good to me.

    Hi Robbie,

    I found you on Idolator in January while looking for Goldfrappery. Thanks for giving us so much, puddin!


    PS- my word veryfication is "aties," which I find suitable.

    ok..I find this track amazingly forgettable. It goes without saying that Stock and Waterman were an unstoppable song factory back in the day. Their stuff was very good and the highlight of their material was Rick Astley's "Never gonna give you up". This song, unfortunately, doesn't stick in my head at all.

    I have yet to meet anyone that likes or can remember the melody to Waterman & Co's lamentable Eurovision song "That sounds good to me" The programme itself was train crash TV, put together without care or passion, and that goes for the song too. In protest me and my husband wrote and recorded an alternative song. It's POP, it's happy, and it's called "Time stood still" Please go and have a listen, all comments welcome whether good or bad...enjoy!
