Eurovision Challenge: Day 12

A song that should have won

Almost there:

Congratulations by Cliff Richard (UK 1968, 2nd place)

Cinéma by Paola (Switzerland 1980, 4th place)

Why Do I Always Get It Wrong? by Live Report (UK 1989, 2nd place)

To Nie Ja! by Edyta Gorniak (Poland 1994, 2nd place)

Die For You by Antique (Greece 2001, 3rd place)

Shady Lady by Ani Lorak (Ukraine 2008, 2nd place)

 

But the one that really should have won is:

7th Wonder by Ira Losco (Malta 2002, 2nd place)

I feel I may have picked this simply because I detest the song that actually won, but in my heart of hearts I do feel 2002 should’ve been Malta’s year. Give me a catchy song, flared all-in-one and glitter blow any day over a strip tease and an ‘ay yai yai yai yaaaaa!’

PS – I just want to say that I was thinking of the families of the 9/11 victims today. Stay strong everyone.

  1. Antique! Edyta! Ani Lorak! And if you consider that 2002 had the worst winner ever, yeah I agree, Ira Losco (I always misspell her name) would have been a better winner!
