Euphoria will never be touched, as it's up there as my fave song of all time let alone just in Eurovision!

This is difficult, obviously, 2012 is probably when I started following the contest so anything fro 2011 and under is going to get snubbed. I feel Euphoria is a must, as is Only Teardrops. The live version of Sound of Silence (obviously) and La La Love are also up there

Okay so all the songs so far are incredible! Like for our Eurovision party this year we bought a strobe light which we tested out in the dark with Euphoria playing. It was incredible. Although all time fave has to be Gianluca Bezzina Tomorrow from Malta in 2013. It's just so cute. Sound of Silence deserved to win tbh!

I think my favourite is Lordi these days. Aged tremendously and a fine example of the amazing things Eurovision throws up sometimes.

I feel like Leave Me Alone might actually be second (and there's the reason Finland were my favourite country for so long).

Sanomi and Nocturne are also well up there.

also I was not watching the contest when ANY of those were entered, so I don't know how that worked. The 00s sound is very me, I guess.

There really are too many to count but I'd say this lot are all up there with my all-time favourites, and are songs I listen to on a very regular basis all year round:

Loreen - Euphoria
Lena - Satellite
Mans Zelmerlow - Heroes
Gina G - Ooh Aah...Just A Little Bit
Poli Genova - If Love Was A Crime
Sanna Nielsen - Undo
Maria Haukaas Storeng - Hold On Be Strong
Ira Losco - 7th Wonder
Cascada - Glorious
Alexander Rybak - Fairytale
Charlotte Perrelli - Hero
One More Time - Den Vilda
Precious - Say It Again
Daz Sampson - Teenage Life (yes, really...I adore the studio version)
The Common Linnets - Calm After The Storm
Eric Saade - Popular
Malena Ernman - La Voix

There are so many national final songs I'd rank up with this lot too...

Dana International - Diva (Israel 1998)
Doris Dragović - Marija Magdalena (Croatia 1999)

20. Ooh Ah Just A Little Bit – Gina G

This needs updating with top classic from this year's Saara Aalto, and fab tracks like Dami Im, Mans Zelmerlow, Conchita Wurst, Franceso Ganbani and Salvador Sobral would all push out the bottom 6 or 7 tracks from the flops list and the bottom 3 from the winners
