Wolves of the Sea by Pirates of the Sea (Latvia, 2008)

Who doesn't love pirates? With their campy pirate schtick they seemed like a sure thing for victory in the altered reality that is Eurovision. But maybe their overconfident lyrics tempted fate:

We are robbing you blind/ I hope you don't mind/ We are taking it all tonight/ Just walk away we'll count it all/ Pirates will stand and the loser will fall.

In the end they managed a respectable 12th place finish.
