Because of the length requirements nowadays, most songs in ESC have only two verses. Have there been any notable songs with three verses in recent years?

Javine 'Touch My Fire' for the United Kingdom in 2005 had three verses but Im not sure whether she sang them all at Eurovision.

Nowadays? The three minute rule has been in force since 1958.

It strikes me now, "Woki mit deim Popo" has three verses, if that's what you can call them :p

Euro Neuro does too, though they're very short. There's actually plenty of songs that have three similar sections, but they don't follow the verse-chorus format. "Liubi Libui", Romania's multilingual entry from 2007 has 7, or 8 verses depending how you see it (the last one is a repeat) but they're just one short bit with no chorus, so it doesn't really count.

Otherwise the vast majority of ESC songs are actually verse-chorus-verse-chorus or verse-chorus-verse-chorus-bridge-chorus, it's really strikingly uncommon for anything else. "Kuula" this year is peculiar, having just a bridge and second chorus with no second verse, "Suus" is similar.

There's an unusual amount this year - San Marino, Romania, and one or even two more i don't remember since they aren't songs i liked enough to play again. But do you think it's a sudden trend, or just coincidence?
