Eurovision Bingo (again)

Some people say that all Eurovision songs are the same. (And some say all blog posts on this topic are the same…) That’s probably not quite true, but there is perhaps a hint of truth in the suggestion that some themes tend to recur from year to year. Hence, I thought, Eurovision Bingo.

I wrote some code to analyse a directory full of lyrics, normally those from the previous year of the competition, and work out the frequency of occurrence of each word. It will then generate Bingo cards, with sets of words of different levels of commonness. You can then use them to play Bingo while watching this year’s competition (which is on Saturday).

There’s a Github repo, or if you want to go straight to pre-generated cards for this year, they are here.

Here’s a sample card from the 2014 lyrics:

fell cause rising gonna rain
world believe dancing hold once
every mean LOVE something chance
hey show or passed say
because light hard home heart

Have fun :-)

  1. I had fun doing something similar to this at a Eurovision party last week. It was a blast.

    Thanks again for the Github link :-)

  2. Wow! What a great idea! I really love watching Eurovision and listening to different music. Almost as much as I love playing bingo and card games online. And for safe withdrawal of money I advise to use a reliable system. Such as here. Thanks again for the great eurovision bingo cards!

  3. Thanks for the recommendation! Eurovision is my favorite music show! I am also fond of gambling and to know more about that I read everything here.
