    Ireland at number 2 for ESC 1995? Sorry but that's way too high. I found Eddie Friel's "Dreamin'" really boring. In fact, I've often seen it as a "suicide song" - after Ireland had won in 1992, 1993 and 1994, and consequently RTE had to foot the bill for hosting ESC 1993 (Millstreet), 1994 (Dublin) and 1995 (Dublin), I've often wondered if "Dreamin'" might have been a desperate attempt to come last with nul points and get relegated from the 1996 ESC. As it happened, it finished 14th with 44 points.

    UK last? Well I didn't think much of their entry, I hated it when it was chosen in the UK's national final, I thought there were other songs in the 1995 UK national final that better deserved to reach the ESC 1995. My grandmother was so disgusted with "Love City Groove" that she wanted the UK's entry to finish last with nul points. When I told her we would then be relegated, i.e. not be able to enter the 1996 ESC, she said "Good job, maybe our lot will write a decent song in that time" (ready for 1997).

    I guess I placed it that high because it was such an unspectacular edition. But obviously I like the song and am generally a fan of the melancholic ballads. Actually, if I compare it to the other entries that have won it for Ireland through the 90's, this would have been a year that I wouldn't have minded Ireland winning. Suppose it always comes down to personal taste in the end.

    As for the British entry, I suppose I had genre issues with it. All that rapping and etc., it all just came across as misplaced, like it didn't belong to the standards of Eurovision back then. It seemed to me like the "MTV/American" 90's rap boom had taken over the UK entry and was trying to carry some sort of "groundbreaking" banner of sorts. It just felt wrong and unappealing. But again, that's just me.

    What did you like that year then? Post away, doesn't have to be a top 23

    It's funny how Norway won that year without the help of nordic neighbours.

    I just watched esc 1995 and I can't believe Norway won. I won't qualify that as song, cause it's 95% music.
