    Birmingham 1998 - Post your top 25

    Last ESC year to feature the performance of a full live orchestra. Also last edition to demand that the entrants performed solely in their countries' official language. How things have changed since then. Was a bit surprised and saddened to read that the singer from my #1 pick passed away a little over a couple of years ago. The circumstances in which things occurred were more sad to learn about than the actual passing, actually.

    Had no recollection Terry Wogan presented for BBC...the more I keep going back in time the more I appreciate his contribute that made Eurovision a trademark in British territory. He had that classic traditional sense of humor that gave one a good chuckle. Not shy to display bias or being a bit mean at times, however. But I guess he did it in a more cordial way than Graham Norton, which from what I've heard doesn't seem that bad of a commentator but still nowhere near as smooth as Wogan. Here's my list for that year:

    1- Romania
    2- Switzerland
    3- Greece
    4- Belgium
    5- Spain
    6- Malta
    7- Sweden
    8- Slovakia
    9- Israel
    10- Portugal
    11- Slovenia
    12- Finland
    13- Ireland
    14- Norway
    15- Netherlands
    16- Macedonia
    17- Turkey
    18- Cyprus
    19- Hungary
    20- Poland
    21- Estonia
    22- Germany
    23- UK
    24- France
    25- Croatia

    Re: Birmingham 1998 - Post your top 25

    I'd better post a year I'm more familiar with, 1998 is still my favourite and it's the one that got me into older contests!


    25. Hungary-Charlie-A holnap mar nem lesz szomoru
    24. Germany-Guildo Horn-Guildo hat euch lieb! (Would have been hilarious if he won though!)
    23. Malta-Chiara-The one that I love (It's actually my least favourite Chiara song, I prefer the version in Maltese in fact!)
    22. Cyprus-Michael Hajiyanni-Genesis
    21. Switzerland-Gunvor-Lass ihn
    20. Finland-Edea-Aava
    19. Norway-Lars Fredriksen-Alltid sommer
    18. Spain-Mikel Herzog-Que voy a hacer sin ti? (Maybe would be higher if I was in a different mood though)
    17. France-Marie-Line-Ou aller (I do actually find it a bit underrated!)
    16. Belgium-Melanie Cohl-Dis oui
    15. Poland-Sixteen-To takie proste
    14. Portugal-Alma Lusa-Se eu te pudesse abraçar
    13. Turkey-Tuzmen-Unutamazsın

    11. Ireland-Dawn Martin-Is Always over Now?

    10. F.Y.R.Macedonia-Vlado Janevski-Ne zori,zoro (Into my more uncommon preferences, my 2010 one is really unusual!)
    9. Slovenia-Vili Resnik-Naj bogovi slisjio
    8. Estonia-Koit Toome-Mere lapsed (Decent 90s Estonia)
    7. Slovakia-Katarina Hasprova-Modlitba
    6. Greece-Thalassa-Mia krifi evaisthissia
    5. Sweden-Jill Johnson-Kärleken är
    4. Netherlands-Edsilia-Hemel en aarde (Nearly top 3!)
