It’s been one month since the stars shined and the confetti fell during the grand final of Eurovision 2018. The team at wiwibloggs can’t get Netta Barizlai’s “Toy” out of our heads and our body is still feeling Eleni Foureira’s “Fuego”. Unless we jump to Cesar Sampson’s “Nobody But You”, Michael Schulte’s “You Let Me Walk Alone”, or Moro & Meta’s “Non Mi Avete Fatto Niente”. But our playlists don’t stop with the Top 5. We’re still loving Aisel’s “X My Heart”, Jessica Mauboy’s “We Got Love” and Saara Aalto’s “Monsters” to name just a few.
That we would compulsively listen to songs that failed to crack the Top 10 (or even make the final) isn’t surprising. Eurovision acts frequently fall flat on the big night because of bad staging or dodgy vocals, while digitally re-mastered versions of those same songs go on to prove timeless. Remember Britain’s Gina G. from the 1996 contest? Her dance number “Ooo Ah….Just A Little Bit” only placed 8th, but it’s now a staple on dance floors from San Francisco to Sydney.
Now it’s time for you to let us know which songs you are still listening to. So load your iTunes and pull up your Spotify to see which tracks you’ve played the most, and then vote in our poll. You can vote for as many songs as you’d like, but you can only vote one time: be sure to click the box next to each song before pressing submit. In order to discourage fans from manipulating the results, you will not be able to see the full results after voting. Sorry ’bout it. The poll will close on June 30.
Rather than stressing out over the results, why not review our past winners? Belgium’s Blanche won last year with “City Lights”, while Poland’s Michal Szpak won with “Color of Your Life” in 2016, Sweden’s Måns Zelmerlöw won with “Heroes” in 2015, Israel’s Mei Finegold won with “Same Heart” in 2014, Romania’s Cezar won with “It’s My Life” in 2013, Ireland’s Jedward won with “Waterline” in 2012, Sweden’s Eric Saade won with “Popular” in 2011, and Turkey’s maNga won with “We Could Be the Same” in 2010.
