For me, 2010 has the best top 3, closely followed by 2014 nonetheless.

2009 easily

2007 and 2010 closing the top 3
2012 and 2016 closing the top 5

2008 for me, not because of the winner, but because of "Shady Lady" and "My Secret Combination"

2009 by far.
Also 2014 had a strong top-3.

Hard to beat 2009 tbh. I'm also particularly fond of 2015's and 2016's.

2008 or 2015, both fantastic, 2015 probably has the edge. Followed by 2005.

If 2009 had been the top 3 according to the juries (Norway, Iceland and United Kingdom) it would have easily been no. 1, but I didn't like the Azeri entry - what we've heard a million times before.

2009, 2015 (2004, if Greece and Turkey are switching places)

Like many already said before me: Definitely 2009 and 2015.

It is hard to choose because the Top 3 from 2014 to 2018 are insanely strong.

The only prior years the can keep up with the quality are 2009 and 2010, although 2009 was too much of a circus, and 2010 I'd switch Turkey for Slovakia, but well.

I was bound to include 2013, because I loved Ukraine that year, but the Top 3 should have included Belgium and the Netherlands as well.

2011 has an incredibly weak Top 3, all the wrong songs so hight, and 2012 as well, although it has a strong number 1 and this year was far from great anyways.

2009 is overrated. ::is in the Top3 feels so wrong.
For me its 2008. Also 2006, 2010 and 2012 are incredible strong.

2005's is legendary (actually add ::il for a whole legendary top four). 2012's is also very good but has a clear weak link in 3rd.

2004, 2006, 2007 and 2012 all had strong Top-3s.

For me, 2009 best year top 3.

Others: 2004, 2005 and 2012

2005 had a legendary Top 10, but the Top 3 per se not so much.

I think 2006,2015 and 2016 with 2012 maybe close.
