Omg! This is it guys! My final countdown! Though the first time I remembered and dated the winning song of the winning year, I decided to start a couple of years earlier. I have two reasons for this, 1) I remember looking at the map the year after this particular song won, and wondered why it was in Equador, South America, considering it was a European show after all. It was a little while later that I realised, the winning country had not been Equador but Estonia! Lol, how interesting age can be in playing a role, manipulating the memory. I was pretty young, so I’m not surprised I was wrong. Still, shocking considering the geography.
A couple of interesting facts about this winning song. 1) David Benton was the oldest contestant to win the contest and 2) he was the first, dare I say it? and I will say I quoted it from Wikipedia, so don’t rag on me! Benton was the first black contestant to win. [I apologise if I offend anyone, but filling that spot with euphemisms….I’d feel, would make it worse.]
