It’s fast becoming a tradition: every New Year’s Eve, Eurovision fans all around the world listen to the Eurovision Top 250 hosted by our friends at ESC Radio, waiting to hear if their favourite ESC track has made the list. But even with a host of new entries from 2014 and plenty of old favourites, victory once again went to Loreen with “Euphoria”. Yes, that’s three in a row.

Given Loreen’s dominance, it’s becoming a fight to see who can finish second behind the Swedish star. This year’s top three was rounded out by the Common Linnets, who got a measure of revenge over Conchita Wurst by pipping her for second place. That pushed Alexander Rybak’s “Fairytale” down in to fourth (as if he didn’t already have enough bad news…), with Pastora Soler taking fifth with “Quedate conmigo“.

It was a good year for 2014’s songs, with twenty two of them making the Top 250. Sanna Nielsen rounded out the top ten with “Undo“, whilst Mei Finegold ranked an impressive 27th with “Same Heart” — despite her semi-final elimination.

A word of warning for those 2014 entries, though: your time at the top may be short-lived. Whilst Anouk and Emmelie de Forest remained in the top ten for a second year running, nearly every other 2013 song took a tumble down the rankings — with Farid Mammadov going from 21st to 120th! Indeed, only Moran Mazor and Aliona Moon improved on their rankings from 2013…

There were also some classic vintage Eurovision songs in there: y’all have clearly been delving in to some history! ABBA finished 6th, whilst 1995 winner Secret Garden finished 17th. There were also some slightly more eye-catching re-entries. Germany’s short-lived girl group MeKaDo from 1994 popped up in 56th place, having not appeared in the rankings in any of the last three years. We’re sure the girls were giving a party wherever they may be!

Another year done and dusted with then. Will Loreen be able to hold on to her crown for a fourth year running in 2015, or do you think that a new song or another old favourite could de-throne her? Let us know your all-time favourite Eurovision song below!

Rak Bishvilo is actually my favourite ESC song ever! It reminded me of why I am a ESC fan; even if the song is in a foreign language you can still feel the passion when someone sings it! So glad Moran improved her position! ????

I never liked Euphoria and I don’t think it deserved to win in 2012,I think the same about Only Teardrops. But I was more than happy with Conchita and her song.

@Nott — where have you heard that Loreen’s second album (appears that it may be called Paperlight or Paperlights) is coming out in January? That wouldn’t make any sense and it would mean practically no time for any promotion before it drops.

Suprise in 2013 not in 250, and in 2014 at 65 place Yugoslavia winner of the Eurovision 1989.

Biggest surprise for me was Running Scared. From 57 in 2013 to 212 in 2014. Who’d have thought?

My all-time favorite Eurovision song is a tie between Wild Dances and Euphoria. 😀

That victory is definitely deserved, congratulations! And I can’t wait for her second album, “Heal” is one of the best albums of the last years.
Congratulations also to The Common Linnets, well done.

I’m not surprised, Euphoria is already a classic in its own right.
Cannot wait for Loreen’s second album (due January 2015)

Moment of the year: the Common Linnets proving that they were more popular than Austria´s song. :’D
