Okay so this is ridiculously hard to do but Eurovision is on, next week! So I wanted to post something up before hand because hey! for those that were with me last year, you’ll know just how big a Eurovision fan I am. And really, I just can never get enough. But making a list of all my favourite Eurovision Songs…well this is incredibly hard. What’s harder will be numbering them. So I decided the numbers are just marking the order in which my favourites came into my head, as opposed to what I think they should rank. Also, because there are so many songs, I will probably have forgotten some, so be on watch for follow up posts sticking out here and there hehe.
1) Wild dances by Ruslana
Ugh my all time favourite and one of the first winners of Eurovision that I actually remember. I think there’s no disputing it. This is my favourite performance.
2) Fairytale by Alexander Rybak
Because I just love the sound of that violin and well…that smile.
3) Euphoria by Loreen
I liked her vocals…and that dance…loved it!
4) Randajad by Urban Symphony
Definitely one of my all time favourites even though I don’t understand a word, I just love it.
5) We Can Be the Same by MaNga
Omg…this is my favourite performance by Turkey, not just because it falls into my favourite category of music or because I think the lead singer is cute, but because I love the lyrics.
6) Dum Tek Tek by Hadise
I always love Turkey’s performances, do I have to say anything else?
7) Drip Drop by Safura
Lyrics, voice, and I loved the performance overall. To be honest, I wish Azerbaijan had won with this song instead of the other one. I don’t know, I just really liked this one.
8) Apricot Stone by Eva Rivas
How can I forget? I love this! It’s not your ordinary pop song, with plenty of symbolism everywhere.
9) Hard Rock Hallelujah by Lordi
I think this speaks for itself.
10) My Number One by Elena Paparizou
I don’t really love the vocals in this, but the song is pretty catchy
11) Secret Combination by Kalomira
I liked this because it got stuck in my head and drove me crazy.
12) Satellite by Lena
Simple song, simple performance, quirky.
13) Always by Aysel and Arash
Always on my mind…after the Eurovision was over that year!
14) Love in Rewind by Dino Merlin
Omg…I love this one. I just love the rhythm and the tune and well everything about the song
15) Lipstick by Jedward
One of the more interesting song performances of 2011, wasn’t my favourite, but I had it up there to be in the top ten
16) Waterline by Jedward
I actually like this song. More than the Lipstick one, even though I like both.
17) La La Love by Ivi Adamou
I just love the original video clip for this. And well, I got sucked into the story of the song.
18) One More Day by Eldrine
Not only does this fall into my favourite genre again, I think she has a great voice!
19) Feed Me Your Love by Margaret Berger
I loved this!! I wish she won (even though I did like the winner as well), but I really loved her performance.And I can’t believe I only remembered it now, it should be near the top (if I was doing this in order of my top favourites).
20) It’s My Life by Cezar
One of the whackier ones from last year with a song that totally grew on me since.
I definitely don’t think I’ve covered all my favourite songs from Eurovision, but I’ll leave it at 20 for now!! EVERYONE get ready to party, Eurovision is coming ~!!!
