Today I have part 2 of Music Of The Year and today I will talk about my favourite Eurovision songs. Last week I made part 1, if you haven’t seen it check it out (here). It is a pretty long list, because I also included some songs from the pre-selections! Let’s start.
Anne Gadegaard – Suitcase.
The Danish pre-selection was pretty dissapointing this year and I only have one favourite and that is Suitcase by Ann Gadegaard. I really love the style of the song. The studio version is a bit better than the live version. Denmark didn’t choose her to go to Eurovision.
Markus Riva – Take Me Down.
I knew Markus Riva from the latvian pre-selection in 2014. Back then he participated with Lights on, but he didn’t win. This year he was back with a different song then last year. I really love this song a lot and I love his voice. It may not be the strongest voice, but it is good. He didn’t win and I was really dissapointed. (I still am). Hopefully he will participate next year again!
Satin Circus – Crossroads
I was watching a YouTube video with all the Finnish Participants and when I saw this song I fell in love with it. I really love this song and this is probably my most played pre-selection song. I was pretty sure that this song was going to Eurovision, but then it didn’t…. And I was really dissapointed, because Finland sended the worst song of this year to Eurovision and they didn’t reach the final. Satin Circus, please come back in 2016.
The Swedish Pre-selection is my favourite to watch.
Ellen Benediktson – Insomnia.
She changed a lot since 2014 and this year I really loved her song! I love dance songs. Her 2014 song was pretty boring, but this years song is amazing. Sadly the Swedish voters didn’t share my thoughts and she didn’t even reach the final.
Behrang Miri Ft. Victor Crone – Det Rar Vi Inte För.
First of all a song in their own language. I love songs in their own language, eventhought I don’t understand a single thing, I love it. I knew Behrang already, but together with Victor Crone they made an amazing song. Again Sweden didn’t share my opinion and they reached Andra Chansen (Second Chance), but no Final.
Dinah Nah – Make Me LaLaLa.
This song has grown on me and now it is one of my favourite songs! I love these kind of songs. This song reached the final of Melodifestivalen and I was really happy about that!
Mariette – Don’t Stop Believing.
If Mans didn’t win Melodifestivalen, this would be my second choice. The lyrics of this song are so beautiful and they make me have a postive feeling. I didn’t see the semi-final where she was in, so I heard the song for the first live in the final. I love her style on stage and her voice.
And now let’s go to my favourite Eurovision songs this year!
Germany – Ann Sophie – Black Smoke.
Germany, my neighbour country! I really loved their song this year. Ann Sophie is a great singer, but she didn’t deserve 0 points in the final. There were songs that were so worse and even they got a better place then her. Anyways she had a great performance and she deserved to be there!
Belarus – Uzari & Maimuna – Time.
This song has grown so much on me, after their released their videoclip this song became one of my favourites. I played their song all the time! When they didn’t reach the Eurovision Final, I was dissapointed. Even more dissapointed about them then my own country (sorry Trijntje).
Estonia – Elina Born Ft. Stig Rästa – Goodbye To Yesterday.
I loved this song from the beginning, but it kind of reminded me of the Dutch entry in 2014. This was one of the possible winners this year and Estonia did a great job choosing them! I loved their performance on stage.
Sweden – Mans Zelmerlöw – Heroes.
My number one favourite! This is the winner of Eurovision and my favourite. I knew Mans already before he participate at Melodifestivalen 2015. Since I watch Melodifestivalen I got to know some great artists, including Mans. Since the first time I heard this song, I loved it so much and for me this was and is the winner of the 2015 Eurovision Song Contest.
Belgium – Loic Nottet – Rythm Inside.
Belgium was for me the darkhorse of this years Eurovision. This song is inspired by a song by Lorde and it did very well in Vienna. Belgium was one of the possible winners to. I liked the song from the start and I must say this song grown on me. Loic has a unique voice, which you can recognize out of thousands. Well done Belgium!
Australia – Guy Sebastian – Tonight Again.
I actually thougt this song would win Eurovision! When I heard this song for the first time I was really impressed. This is really top 40 material and I played this song over and over again! After Eurovision I have listened to this song a lot. He became my worthy number 2.
Slovenia – Maraaya – Here For You.
Her voice is amazing and also like Loic Nottet a unique voice. I also really like the style of their song and I also have played this song a lot. This song was also a possible winner.
Norway – Debrah Scarlett & Morland – A Monster Like Me.
Before Eurovision In Concert I liked this song after Eurovision In Concert I loved it, so much. It such a beautiful song and I am not a ballad person, but this song is so amazing. Norway got my third place.
United Kingdom – Electro Velvet – Still In Love With You.
You all probably will think what the hell…. Well this song my was guilty pleasure this year! I kinda love it and Electro Velvet are really nice in real life! I hoped it would do good, but I didn’t. But still I kinda love this song. Well their perfomance was really nice.
Azerbaijan – Elnur Huseynov – Hour Of The Wolf.
Back in 2008 Elnur participated with samir for Azerbaijan and this year he was back with a beautiful song. I really like this song, but I didn’t like his performance itself on Eurovision. For this song the performance was a bit to busy and I didn’t really understand it.
Israel – Nadav Guedj – Golden Boy.
Let’s party with Israel! Israel surpised me this year with their party song and Europe loved it to! Between all these songs israel was one of the songs that stood out!
Georgia – Nina Sublatti – Warrior.
This song went from non-favourite to favourite in three minutes. That is the main reason she got in this blogpost. Her Eurovision performance was amazing and she was really good. A very strong contestant.
Who are you Eurovision favourites?
