Hello Everyone,

 

As we are one day from the Eurovision final let´s establish two things. Which is your favourite Eurovsion song this year? Which is your favourite Eurovision song ever?

 

I come from the most successful country in Eurovision during the last 50 years, the country with the second most wins and a country which is generally in love with Eurovison (over 80% of the songs have some Swedish involvement). I am a huge Eurovison fan and have attended four grand finals with the first when I was 7 years old. For me I have to say that this year I am moderately impressed with the lineup and am very curious who will win. Sweden has a completely horrible song which actually is not that bad when compared to some others but in my opinion we could have voted something better (which I did). Sure Italy got a great song and a fantastic performance which I like. Portugal got a complete fool on stage. Bulgaria got a kid on stage. And the Belgian song is fantastic but the singer is way to scared when performing it. Sweden as I said is very boring but it got great chances. Tomorrow I will be voting for Hungary, Croatia and Moldova as I really enjoy these songs so I guess they are my favourites. 

 

To say favourite song ever is a lot harder but I will first list a couple that I like:

  • If love was a crime, Bulgaria
  • Undo, Sweden
  • Euphoria, Sweden
  • Euphoria, Sweden
  • Fairy tale, Norway
  • Aphrodisiac, Greece
  • Satellite, Germany
  • Ne partez pas sans moi, Switzerland
  • Waterloo, Sweden
  • Diggiloo diggiley, Sweden
  • Run away, Moldova
  • La voix, Sweden
  • And many more

To say one favourite is very hard but to be honest it has to be Dancing Lasha Tumbai by Verka Serduchka from 2007 which lost to a horrible lesbian revolt song. In deed from a musical perceptive its not a great song but it has a fantastic performance, it is remembered, it is happy, it makes you imitatively get up and dance, it got a great rhythm, it has a fantastic hidden message and will make me happy regardless of circumstance. How bad I ever feel after half of the song I will jump jump up moving my hands up and down. Enjoy.

I saw your Thread only now and with a huge delay  :blush:  :P

 

There is no favourite song for me, though I like many classic contributions over the decades.

 

However, because I love ABBA as much as McDonnell Douglas MD-80s, I think that Waterloo will always take a special place because it enabled ABBA to become more known and just hear the "development of their music" until they decided to take a break (from ABBA) in 1982 - ABBA is like an elixir of life for me. To hear the arrangements and the voices, quality, simply fantastic :wub: :

Just saw this thread today. I am a true fan of ESC, this year I was disappointed a bit because last year in Stockholm contest was amazing, especially hosts. :)  And I was very happy with the winner this year. The best song of 2017 though was French one in my opinion. And the best song ever was 2015 Goodbye to Yesterday I assume (Estonian songs are perfect every year). I really hope that 2018 Portugal edition will not disappoint me!

Sweden makes the best ESC shows on a small budget. Even the Ukrainian show was made by Swedes as the Ukrainians quit.

The best song, in my opinion, comes from Austria (1980), composed by Klaus Peter Sattler, "Du bist Musik"....

OMG :lol: ..celebrating the introduction of an MD-80 with new uniforms?

 

 

And here is the new uniform of British Airways introduced in 1976. After their performances, they went to their duties aboard their BAC One-Eleven, HS Trident and Vickers VC-10:

ABBA songs are much better in Swedish than in English:

 

 

Talking about another great Swedish Eurovision song it has to be this:
