Father Ted - S02E05 - A Song for Europe

Ted is goaded by Father Dick Byrne into attempting to write a song for "Eurosong '96" (spoof of the Eurovision Song Contest). Despite having a song with only one note, Ireland's fear of winning again (and having to fund it) plays into Ted and Dougal's hands. This mirrors the real life belief that Ireland chose the 1994 Eurovision entry, "Rock 'n' Roll Kids", which was thought to differ greatly to the typical winning song, so as to ensure they did not have to host the contest again. (Ironically, Ireland did indeed win the Eurovision in 1996, for the 4th time in 5 years).
