As summer rolls on, and new music drops by the minute, it’s inevitable that some Eurovision tracks drop off your playlists. But every year a few tracks manage to stand the test of time to become evergreens played at home and in bars and restaurants (if they’re open again where you live anyway).

We wanted to forecast which tracks from the Class of 2021 will stand the test of time. So on July 15 we asked our readers to consult their iPhones and music systems and to let us know which Eurovision 2021 tracks they are still listening to.

After receiving 36,012 votes, the results are in…and our readers are still rocking out to Måneskin’s Eurovision winner “Zitti e buoni”.

The song charted in several countries following the contest, even cracking the Top 20 in the UK. But the signs of its potential success were already abundant ahead of Eurovision. The band’s track received plenty of plaudits from the Wiwi Jury — our in-house panel of music unprofessionals.

Our Spanish blogger Luis wrote: “Updating a formula is not an easy task, but Italy’s Måneskin have succeeded. Their sound blends rock bands from the previous decades and updates it for 2021, while giving it an extra dose of glam. ‘Zitti e buoni’ is a punch in the face made with gusto. It’s edgy and elegant, gritty yet classy. The band has proven their live abilities during the five nights of Sanremo: Italy is bound to have one of the most exciting performances of the year.”

He awarded the band a perfect 10. And so did our New Zealand based blogger Robyn. She wrote:

“I’m very ready for Måneskin to take to the Ahoy stage. Their Sanremo performances showed that they are capable of delivering a show-stopping performance, able to bring plenty of rock and roll swagger and attitude with a definite Italian feeling. Eurovision always needs a good rock performance to set the arena on fire — and Måneskin are here to serve.”

Ukraine’s Go_A, Cyprus’ Elena Tsagrinou, Azerbaijan’s Efendi and Switzerland’s Gjon’s Tears round out our readers’ Top 5.

Weird to see Azerbaijan so high, it stands out in this top-10 since it’s surrounded by songs that did a lot better than it.

Bulgaria and Malta are really low concidering the hype both had!

Italy winning this poll was quite clear, it’s a good song!

“Zitti e buoni” is not my favourite song but Måneskin definitely made the best stage show in Eurovision at least in 2021. That is in my opinion. Great winners.

I do enjoy watching the televote points. Albania and Azerbaijan were not shown and the hosts seemed cool about it and the transitions were smooth. Ridiculous and “suspicious”.

Zitti e Buoni and Shum rightfully at the top, but I’m pleasantly surprised by how well Technicolour has aged for me. Think Montaigne might’ve been more of a fave if she’d been in Rotterdam.

Apparently it’s not that common for the winner of the contest to win these polls judging by the results of the previous years. Even winners that aren’t generally considered controversial like “Only Teardrops” or “Euphoria” didn’t manage to. I wonder if esc fans just get tired of the winning songs pretty quickly because the hype reaches them earlier.
