Eurovision produces a variety of songs; some excellent, some forgettable. This song was not performed due to Eurovision’s cancellation, but still has gone viral. Fans include Dara Ó Briain and Russell Crowe.

Not only does this song have a funky beat, it also has heartwarming lyrics. The song was written about the feeling of love the singer had after the birth of his daughter, and how excited he was to see his child develop. So, in the spirit of joy, when you listen to this song imagine Iceland’s reaction when they inevitably won their first Eurovision. – Hannah Jones, Government Legal Department

Video of the day

What we want are individual, personal contributions from lawyers and legal sector professionals working from home. You could be demonstrating a recipe, videoing your daily run, telling a joke, singing us a song, showing off a skill, or just telling us about your day and what you’ve been up to. We are very open to creativity – anything that uplifts or diverts.

What we don’t want is too many firm-branded videos talking about how seamlessly you have transitioned to a new way of working, please.
