Nick's 100 Best Eurovision Songs

  1. NickEmpel BURGER AND FRIES

    Hey everyone!

    I decided to make a list of my 100 best Eurovision songs of all time. I will have to add that these songs were all really close. I was planning to just put those 100 songs here, without ranking them. But then I thought: there is a big difference between my all time #1 and my all time #100, so I did make a ranking of it.

  3. It's going to be quite easy guessing your song for E3.
  4. NickEmpel BURGER AND FRIES

    Nah not really, I spoke to JW about that before I posted it. And as he said, taste can change, and still, 100 songs in this list. As I said in the text before the list: I only made a ranking of it to show that I think Femme Fatale isn't as good as Tu Te Reconnaîtras.
    So really, it won't be too easy to guess my song for E3.
  5. Gian My avatar is fat and frumpy

    Amazing Job Nick!
    I think you have a very good taste putting this song here. I love it too. It's only a bit unusual. But it's very good indeed. And the female singer has an amazing voice. It was so underrated in ESC 2009! 40/100 circa
  6. swissBoy Active Member

    Great job Nick! It was nice to see these videos and to remember some great performances:) I would never dare myself to do something like this, although I love eurovision:P. So, thank u for this:D
  7. Thanks Nick, now it works ;)
  8. NickEmpel BURGER AND FRIES

    I'm now making every song a hyperlink, so you can click it and then listen to it :P
  9. Luis DLC I spread Eurovision joy in the US, oy

    I REALLY hope he meant the studio version which was ok for me, but that live remix with the bad singing and yelling man :faint: Just like Slovenia that year, they took a song I liked and ruined it with a remix and bad performance...but I love a bunch of the songs listed here:up:

    I've not finished going back to the start of the entire contest, but there are a few countries that I've listened to their entire history: UK, Spain, Ireland, Portugal, Malta, Iceland, everyone who debuted in the 90s and I see my number one from Spain (1971) and Poland (1994) there :)
  10. n.echelon between heaven and hell

    wow so many songs i dont even know O.O :((( i gotta watch the old eurovisions someday....
    i really like ur #3 (lena)..
    btw u prefer "everything" than "my number one" ? i've always thought that the "everything" wasnt sth special
    my fav out of all of those songs is :by:Belarus - 2007 - Koldun - Work Your Magic <3
  11. NickEmpel BURGER AND FRIES

    Anna Vissi's 2006 entry was literally everything a Eurovision entry needs. It had drama (just think about he falling on the knees), it had a wind machine, an amazing voice, amazing music (those guitars to provide a slight rock sound are genious) and just Anna made that song to one of the true amazing songs in Eurovision.
    With Helena's 2005 song, I always had a bit of a love/hate relationship. The music is brilliant, but the lyrics always came across quite cheap to me, nothing special. However, the fact that 'My Number One' had Greek influences, but wasn't a typical Greek song (even when you hate Greek music, it was possible to love My Number One), made it to a masterpiece.
