What’s another year? With these words Eurovision legend Johnny Logan took his first of two victories at Eurovision. Now, on the last day of every year, Eurovision fans ask themselves the same question as part of the Eurovision Top 250, in which they rank their all-time favourite Eurovision songs. Will another year bring a new #TOP250 winner?

Sweden's Loreen

No. For the fourth year in a row Eurovision 2012 winner Loreen has won the global vote and finished on top of the list. Conchita Wurst finishes in second, with Il Volo, The Common Linnets and Måns Zelmerlöw rounding out the Top 5.

As ever, there is something of a recency bias: five of the Top 10 tracks come from the most recent contest in Vienna.

Quedate Conmigo! So happy Pastora Soler is in the top 10, best singer in ESC so far! Live it was even much better than in the video! 2012 was i.m.o. overall the best ESC year: Quedate Conmigo, Euphoria, Kuula, Suus, La La Love, Aphrodisiac, Never Forget, L’amore è Femmina… topsongs!

I don’t see Iceland 2015 on the result list, does that mean there were only 31 countries in the top 250 in the results for 2015?

Loreen and “Euphoria” deserve to win, it is one of the best winners and best songs to ever come out of Eurovision. Love the jealousy from certain people.

Glad to see Pastora in 6th place just after Mans. It’s a shame that we, Spain, didn’t make the Top 5 that year.

I don’t get the continued hype over Euphoria. I acknowledge it’s a good song and possibly the best of ESC 2012, but its “legendary” status perplexes me.

Haha i am glad that the disgrace aka Malta 2015 didn’t make the list. After the revamp the song became a huge mess. Ambers vocals didn”t fit in and all those adlips made it even worse. If you look at the top 12 1/3 is a song from Sweden and ofc happy that TCL are 4th <3

Happy new year everycuerpo!

Apparently Loreen and Conchita are to stay at the Top for the next years, everlasting anthems. I wonder what the Swedish cheese in Spanish letras is doing in the Top 10? #bleak

Missing Lena and Nicole here. The two German wins were won of the most major in ESC.

I guess we will have Il Volo still in the Top 10 when Zelmerlöw is long gone.

Emmelie de Forest is a lot better than anyone on this list in my very honest opinion. Only Teardrops ?

I’m glad Pastora made the top 10.

Sad that Lena or Rybak did not make it in the list. The 2012 contest and onwards were the best ones however.

Malta 2015 not being there is a shock to me! Amber has always been and always will be underrated in my opinion! Favourite song this year! Doris Dragovic’s famous 120 place drop from 53 to 173 is shocking! I’m getting sick of Loreen’s overplayed, overrated Euphoria winning everything! Pastora Soler should have won in 2012 and should win here too! Best song ever but I’m happy she’s doing well every year! Conchita’s Rise Like A Phoenix naturally doing well! Good. Really pleased for Patricia Kaas riding on the verge of a top 20 placing! Fantastic!! Some of my other real… Read more »

Do you mean the UK 2015 is on that list. They should be no where near it. Even as a Brit I am mortified.
