    Your Top 10 (Top 66) Eurovision winner songs of all time

    So -

    which are your most favourite songs ever that won the Eurovision Song Contest?

    I'd love to see your ranking. Please do at least a top 10, but if you have enough stamina, feel free to do the whole 66*-winners-list!

    (*since there were four winners in 1969, there are actually 66 winners in 63 contests)

    Re: Your Top 10 (Top 66) Eurovision winner songs of all time

    Here is my ranking.

    I'm starting with the ones I'm not too keen on.
    Yes, I guess some of you are shocked to find some classic Eurovision winners or even smash hits in there, but I'm not the one who necessarily agrees with the common public opinions.

    66 The Netherlands 1959
    65 The Netherlands 1957
    64 Switzerland 1956
    63 France 1958
    62 France 1962
    61 France 1960
    60 Luxembourg 1961
    59 Austria 1966
    58 Denmark 2000
    57 France 1969
    56 Portugal 2017
    55 Ukraine 2016
    54 Ireland 1993
    53 The Netherlands 1969
    52 United Kingdom 1969
    51 Denmark 1963
    50 Russia 2008
    49 Belgium 1986
    48 Norway 1985
    47 Israel 1998
    46 Latvia 2002
    45 Italy 1964
    44 Israel 1979
    43 Denmark 2013
    42 Germany 2010
    41 Switzerland 1988
    40 Sweden 2012
    39 Germany 1982
    38 United Kingdom 1967
    37 Sweden 1984
    36 Sweden 1974
    35 United Kingdom 1976
    34 Spain 1968
    33 Spain 1969
    32 Luxembourg 1973

    Now the winners I actually quite like. Most of them are really "worthy winners", means that I agree / am content with their victory.

    31 Ireland 1970
    30 Azerbaijan 2011
    29 Israel 1978
    28 Luxembourg 1983
    27 Estonia 2001
    26 Sweden 1999
    25 Turkey 2003
    24 Israel 2018
    23 Yugoslavia 1989
    22 Luxembourg 1965
    21 Ireland 1996
    20 Greece 2005
    19 France 1977
    18 Luxembourg 1972
    17 Ireland 1987
    16 Ireland 1992
    15 United Kingdom 1997
    14 Ukraine 2004
    13 United Kingdom 1981
    12 Ireland 1994
    11 Monaco 1971

    So.... here come my top 10. *drum roll*

    10 Netherlands 1975 Teach-In "Ding-a-Dong"
    While this one is considered as one of the worse winners, I love this one so much! Such a happy, easy to sing along song, catchy, absolutely lovely.

    9 Ireland 1980 Johnny Logan "What’s Another Year"
    It's a tough head-to-head race between this one and Logan's other entry 1987. While I loved Hold me now better when I was a child, I discovered the beauty of What's another year some years later.

    8 Sweden 1991 Carola "Fångad av en stormvind"
    Classic! What can you not love about this typical Eurovision song?

    7 Austria 2014 Conchita Wurst "Rise Like a Phoenix"
    Just one word: epic! Great song, great staging, great performance.

    6 Italy 1990 Toto Cutugno "Insieme: 1992"
    Not the ususal type of Eurovision song ... more like the songs you used to hear on the radio back then. An Italo classic, yeah, that comes to your mind when you think of Italy's music scene in general. It gives me summer-vibes and reminds me of the holidays, despite the political message!

    5 Sweden 2015 Måns Zelmerlöw "Heroes"
    Mainstream, I know, but a good one. This one I'm listening to quite often because that is a typical, some may say generic, fan friendly song. Plus that really cool staging...

    4 Finland 2006 Lordi "Hard Rock Hallelujah"
    I love metal. Nuff said.

    On to my top 3

    3 Serbia 2007 Marija Šerifović "Molitva"
    One of the best ballads in Eurovision ever. And what a great voice she has... goosebumps!!!

    2 Norway 1995 Secret Garden "Nocturne"
    So so so beautiful. It's not my number one because there's too much music in it, not really "fair" in a SONG contest. But I love the atmosphere, the folklore elements, the dark staging.

    And my personal Eurovision winner of all time is... (if you were attentive you may know what comes next :-))

    Great top 10, I even agree on Azerbaijan 2011 which, imho, isn't by far the worst winner! It's actually quite cute.

    A little exception: I'm just not too keen on 1993. I never connected to this, I always had the impression Niamh was a little too shy and lacking some "energy". But then again, slower songs were quite popular in the 90s.

    I can understand what you say about Niamh. She didn't move, but the song is an earworm for me and I think she sings wonderfully!

    Wow, this is a rather unexpected ranking, very interesting. The last years must have been a bit frustrating for you, eh?
