Eurovision 2015 – top 40.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Yes, it’s that time of year again, folks. If you don’t like the Eurovision Song Contest, now would probably be a good time to stay away from my blog for the next couple of months or so. Now that all 40 songs have been submitted, here’s my personal top 40, as generated/helped by (delete as appropriate) ESC United‘s song sorter… thingy. I’ll post a bigger review of all the songs in this year’s contest once I’ve typed it up and finalised it but, for now, this is all you’re getting from me. And, what’s more, my top ten hasn’t really changed all that much. There have been some songs shifted about but it’s all still pretty much the same.

That is all.

  1. You know, I don’t want to be nitpicky, but I hate it when people go “Here’s my Top X” when there are exactly “X” things to choose from. It’s basically saying “I like them all!” Might be better to call it something like “Personal Rankings”.

    Anyway, it’s all good fun, and an easy way to see what’s going on in popular music in Europe. Especially when (like this American) you’ve got nothing invested in it; no national pride at stake at all and you can just enjoy the music.

    (By the way, what do you think they’ll do if Australia wins?)

    • But that’s exactly what it is – my personal ranking of all 40 songs from this year’s Eurovision Song Contest (with a little help from other sources) and my own review will come later, haha! It’s not just the music we love either – as a Brit, I enjoy laughing at some of the hideous outfits the contestants wear as well as cringing at some of the so-called ‘songs’, especially some of the acts we’ve sent over the years. Take Scooch in 2007 for example: their song was rubbish and so were the costumes! They looked and sounded like horny air cabin crew… and that wasn’t a good thing!

      Oh, and if the Aussies win, they’ve said they’ll let another European city host next year’s event, which probably means it won’t be London/Edinburgh/Cardiiff, then…

      PS: Nice to see an American getting on board with Eurovision too!
