Eurovision ballads can inspire you to grab a box of tissues. Depending on how depressing they are, they can also make you want to change the channel. Mothers, rainy days, death, break-ups and torrid love—these are the ingredients for some of this year’s most dramatic songs. But which is your favourite?

You can listen to all of this year’s ballads below. Then vote for your favourite. You can vote for as many songs you’d like, but you can only vote ONE time.

1) Armenia: Aram MP3 – “Not Alone”

2) Austria: Conchita Wurst – “Rise Like A Phoenix”

3) Azerbaijan: Dilara Kazimova – “Start A Fire”

4) Belgium: Alex Hirsoux – “Mother”

5) Moldova: Cristina Scarlat – “Wild Soul”

6) Montenegro: Sergej Cetkovic – “Moj svijet”

7) Norway: Carl Espen – “Silent Storm”

8) San Marino: Valentina Monetta – “Maybe (Forse)”

9) Slovenia: Tinkara Kovac – “Round and Round”

10) Spain: Ruth Lorenzo – “Dancing In The Rain”

11) Sweden: Sanna Nielsen – “Undo”

12) The Netherlands: The Common Linnets – “Calm After The Storm”

Shouldn’t Albania be on this list? Their song could be classed as a ballad as well.

Completely agree with @peter and @Woz, sometimes people didn’t vote for us because we’re Spain, I hope and know that this year, along with 2012, we will show that we take ESC seriously, actually we’re doing hard to win.

I hope Europe will acknowledge how hard Ruth is working to bring the contest to Spain in 2015!

Greetings to all Europe from Spain

@peter “I think sometimes we dont vote to Spain just because we dont want them ever win”

And why is that? As a spaniard I’d like to know.

Btw, I can’t remeber any other year besides 2012 when we deserved any votes. But I can’t see why people just don’t want us to win. Is it because of soccer?

please block “Armenian King”/”Armenian Diaspora”. It’s obviously the same guy and he’s obviously not Armenian. It’s insulting.
