So with me being on furlough for two months, and me needing something to distract myself everyday, what better time to make a thread of my favourite songs from each country at Eurovision๐Ÿ˜…
๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡ฑAlbania (2012)๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡ฑ
The orchestration, the emotion, THE RANGE. It was just the perfect ballad. Shame the overall package was ruined by the Evil Queen outfit and questionable hairstyle. But in a weaker year, with better dress sense, it could have done a Salvador.
๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡ฉAndorra (2007)๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡ฉ
No country was F'd over more in the 1 Semi Final-100% televote years. This wannabe Busted just missed the final but would have easily qualified under todays system. Andorra withdrew after '09 with 0 qualifications but all signs pointing towards a return soon.
๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡ฒArmenia (2014)๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡ฒ
Yes they have better songs but I honestly just love this. The serious classical orchestration that transforms into an unholy mess of dubstep... LOVE IT! Its solid JRPG theme song territory. I mean give this to Utada and boom you have the Kingdom Hearts 4 theme.
๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บAustralia (2019)๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ
Now I love Dami Im, but Dami didn't stand on a 20ft pole and kill every bird in Europe in the process! I didn't really rate this in its NF but seeing this live changed EVERYTHING. The image of her being rolled out into the arena will stay with me forever!
๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡นAustria (2014)๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡น
THE REAL CULTURAL RESET. Was it the best song on the night? No. The best vocals? No. Did it deserve to win? HELL YES because the POWER this win had! Also love how Austrian TV basically said "Meh CBA this year, just send the drag queen" and look what happened๐Ÿ˜‚
๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡ฟAzerbaijan (2010)๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡ฟ
I love this just for the fact they spent MILLIONS on it. Hired Beyonces choreographer, Michael Jacksons MV director, online ads EVERYWHERE. They thought they had the win! Then they drew 1st song and came 5th๐Ÿ˜…But behind dodgy vocals its a decent pop ballad.
๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡พBelarus (2017)๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡พ
In the words of Marie Kondo, THIS SPARKS JOY! A Belarusian language Mumford & Sons-esque folk song that got everyone on their feet?! Whats not to love!! Belarus usually only qualify in weak years so this qualifying in the strong year of '17 speaks for itself.
