Eurovision Challenge: Day 18

Worst ever entry (dah dah DAHHHHH!)

Boy, was I scared of this question! As a Eurovision obsessive, I’m reluctant to bestow such a title on just one of the 1000+ entries from the last 56 years, despite the fact that I do find some of the songs awful. Plus, I’m only really well acquainted with the songs that I like from the 1950s, 60s and 70s, not those at the lower end of the table, which are the ones I tend to dislike (except 90% of the songs that have come last, which I seem to love).

So what’s the solution? Well, I’m going to be a chicken and not pick just one bad, bad song today. Instead, I present to you a bunch of songs that I feel I know well enough to say, ‘GOD, I hate that!’. Enjoy…or not.

  1. Agree with your choice, but for me the worst song is… Sweden 2011. Shocked, eh? I really can’t stand that song, while I still able to listen the 5 songs you picked as the worst 😀

    • *shocked face* Really? The worst EVER??? Haha, I can understand why you wouldn’t like it, but personally I do! Although I accept that the songwriters can’t have spent a heap of time on the lyrics…..
