With the Eurovision Top 250 voting open, we really want to tell you all who our all time Eurovision favourites are. In the next couple of weeks, we’ll share our #ESC250 votes with you! In this first edition, we’ll have a look at the songs Nick, Luke and Dominik love. Make sure you click through all the pages and tell us what you think!
Nick: It’s all Greek to me!
#10: Helena Paparizou – My Number One (Greece 2005)
I know I might need a Greek passport after what’s yet to come. Helena Paparizou entered Eurovision with a perfectly cut out entry to take the trophy to Athens. Her repetoire in general is wonderful and that makes me support her in this ESC250 as well!
#9: Koza Mostra ft. Agathon Iakovidis – Alcohol Is Free (Greece 2013)
The Eurovision Song Contest is a place where you can show your national identity and showcase current events in your country. That also goes when your country is not doing that well. Greece took on that message in 2013, when they sang about their national crisis in a rather original way, with a ska band and a rebetiko singer. I loved it and still do!
#8: Marie Myriam – L’Oiseau et L’Enfant (France 1977)
Every top ten needs a classic in the list. France’s last(!) Eurovision winner to date deserves to get that spot. It tells a wonderful story of love and of a beautiful world. Marie Myriam delivers this with such class, that one can only admire her for this performance.
