BBC News – Jul 3, 2004
Soft Cell’s “Tainted Love” looked home and hosed as the final votes were being counted. In golfing terms Marc Almond and his musical partner Dave Ball were comfortable leaders in the clubhouse and were trying on the green jacket for size. But in a twist that would have done Eurovision proud a late surge saw The Undertones’ “Teenage Kicks” snatch victory. Cruel indeed on Soft Cell but a worthy win for Feargal and the lads. The Beach Boys’ “God Only Knows” was third with “Waterloo Sunset” by The Kinks fourth and “Anarchy In The UK” by the Sex Pistols fifth. The Daily Telegraph’s Henry Winter cut a distraught figure when his brave campaign to have Dolly Parton’s “Jolene” crowned as the greatest single ever came to nothing. And reports that the BBC’s own Mike Ingham had “Enter Sandman” by thrash rockers Metallica in his selection remain as yet unconfirmed.

Greece explodes as team reaches new heights
The Age – Jul 3, 2004
The game threw all schedules into disarray. Some cinemas simply dumped Hollywood blockbusters and showed the football instead. Ukrainian Eurovision song contest winner Ruslana who is on tour in Greece moved her show in the western city of Ioannina 90 minutes ahead of schedule in order not to overlap with the match. And a village in southern Greece even postponed for a day its traditional festival of celebration for its patron saint. – AFP Top of Page Page Tools.
