Eurovision 2010 to 2019 Logos

This year at wiwibloggs, we are celebrating the festive season with a series of different polls. For the next few days, we’re going to stuff your stockings with a selection of end-of-decade Eurovision votes. Consider this a unique riff on the classic “Twelve Days of Christmas” carol.

Whether you celebrate Christmas or not, you can join us and let us know your thoughts for each and every poll.

Eurovision theme music: 2010 to 2019

The Eurovision Song Contest is all about the artists and their songs. But aside from these contributions, there is always some exceptional theme music.

Every year the responsible host broadcaster puts a lot of thought into the entire creative agenda. But who came up with the most innovative theme music? From “Share the Moment” to “Dare to Dream”, there is a lot to choose from.

Take a listen to all the themes from 2010 onwards and vote for your favourites in our poll. You can vote for as many themes as you like, but you can only vote once — so make it count!

Eurovision 2010: Share The Moment

The 2010 contest kicked off the decade with a theme music that brought together viewers from all over Europe. It also resonated well with the past decades and summed up everything the competition is about from the very early days.

Eurovision 2011: Feel Your Heart Beat

The 2011 theme music placed an emphasis on drums and used a violin which contributed to the swell of “Feel Your Heart Beat”. While simplistic, it ties in wonderfully with the branding used throughout the three shows. Plus, it was great at creating suspense.

Eurovision 2012: Light Your Fire!

The 2012 theme couldn’t be from anywhere except Azerbaijan. Embracing eastern rhythms and instruments, it sounds traditional yet modern, contemporary yet extraordinary. Besides, it also worked well with the theme art and the notion of fire used within the slogan.

Eurovision 2013: We Are One

Setting a very new tone in the decade, Sweden brought a fresh and modern theme song for 2013’s contest in Malmö. Celebrating “We Are One”, the track reflects the evolution of Sweden’s music industry.

Eurovision 2014: #joinus

Picking up where 2013’s theme song left, 2014’s “#joinus” sees another contemporary approach that proved popular with the fans. The bombastic melody is extremely memorable, creating a massive sense of occasion.

Eurovision 2015: Building Bridges

The theme music for “Building Bridges” in Vienna combined modern aspects of previous tracks used in the 2013 and 2014 contests, while also including a more orchestral and classic melody. This links with the musical history of host city Vienna. Lyrics were added for the the grand final performance by the hosts.

Eurovision 2016: Come Together

Perhaps one of the most modern theme songs to date, 2016’s “Come Together” built on the 2013 contest in Malmö. Once again, the Swedish broadcaster SVT and the EBU came up with an extremely fresh and up-to-date theme that fits extremely well into the Swedish music scene.

Eurovision 2017: Celebrate Diversity

The theme music for “Celebrate Diversity” follows a similar pattern as the 2015 theme for “Building Bridges”. At the same time, it also embraces some contemporary aspects and reflects a very balanced and clean track in between these different theme songs heard over the decade.

Eurovision 2018: All Aboard

Kicking off with a horn, the 2018 theme song is a huge counterpart to the modern and contemporary tracks produced over previous years. However, it sounds like a classic piece of music that comes across as very heartfelt and genuine and fits well with the overall approach taken for the 2018 contest in Portugal.

Eurovision 2019: Dare to Dream

The theme for 2019’s “Dare to Dream” ends up the decade reflecting the current state of music. The track for “Dare to Dream” is right up with where music is currently heading. It adds a nice texture to the whole idea of the theme art.

What is your favourite Eurovision theme music of the 2010s?

Note, for the purposes of this poll, we’re only listening to the overall theme for each year. Postcard music, slogans, logos and the rest will be covered in polls later in the week.

That’s a quite difficult choice to make. All of those songs bring me emotions. 2010: that introduction video of the grand final is absolutely great. A brilliant idea that makes me nostalgic every time. Perhaps the video I love the most but the theme song is not the best of the decade. 2011: nothing special there. It only makes me remember that funny introduction act with all the Lenas and the flags at the final. 2012: I love that traditionnal music. I can easily close my eyes and imagine myself in the desert. Sadly, the song never gave me theme… Read more »

Wasn’t 2013 ‘We Write The Story’? That wins for me, hands down.

2014 and 2015 far ahead the other years.
Building Bridges was definitely one of the most inspired, even giving lyrics to the song.

2019’s theme music is catchy AF. It was the backdrop to those final moments on ESC2019 with Duncan and his team celebrating.

Sadly it’s nowhere to be found as a published track given it’s the sort of thing you’d find on a royalty-free music service. I hope EBU upload a clean rip at some point.

The music that they put here in the article for 2019 was played during the final credits of every show. Actually when you compare it to the short piano music that started every postcard it’s actually the same melody but in a very different arrangement.

2014 all the way – by far the most memorable! I like 2018 too for the fact it’s a genuinely qualitative piece of music rather than some electronic backing music, and 2016 and 2017 are not too bad either. Everything else is pretty bland.

Without a doubt, the 2018 one. A tremendous pice of music that elegantly mixed classic music with Portuguese guitar. 2015 would be my close second choice. All the others, to be honest, are just tunes for commercials.

I only remember 2015 because it was so cringe worthy it haunted me in my nightmares. When you use full playback and still sound so bad, you might wanna keep it instrumental.
