Songs That Did Not Win Eurovision

As a matter of fact, with what frequently seems like political democratic picking the champ, there are heaps of incredible tunes that ought to have won, yet didn’t.

Precipice Richard, Michael Ball and even Abba have passed up being delegated champions. Just to make our statement, the following are that we think would have been commendable champs.


1958: Domenico Modugno — Nel Blu Dipinto Di Blu (Volare)

THE Italian guitarist, vocalist, entertainer and lawmaker appeared this melody at the 1958 Eurovision, and watched it come third with only 13 places.All extremely odd, as Volare would proceed to be a melody we as a whole know and perceive, frequently going with anything Italian!Covered by everybody from David Bowie to Dean Martin, Al Martino to Cliff, Sinatra to Armstrong and Pavarotti to Barry White, we need to ask, how in the world did this not start things out in ’58?


1959: Pearl Carr And Teddy Johnson — Sing, Little Birdie

THIS blissful looking pair were a hitched couple, and extremely well known at the time as all over performers.A recess of whistling, and Teddy holding what gave off an impression of being a stuffed budgie, were not as everyone would prefer, but rather these are the reasons we cherished it! Tragically, they just came next, however we will always remember them.


1961: The Allisons — Are You Sure?

WE’RE as yet not certain how this man arrived at the second spot.The brief British pop team thought of this Beatles Esque number, yet after the ’61 challenge, they at absolutely no point ever arrived at similar levels as the Fabs in the future.

Delivered as a solitary, it went directly to No 1 and remained in the UK top four for a considerable length of time, an accomplishment Ringo and the chaps would’ve been content with in those early days.

Held in Cannes, Luxembourg won in 1961. The show overran now at the ideal time, which was the reason the rehash of their tune toward the end wasn’t displayed on British TV.

Not, as some suspect, since we realized The Allisons ought to have been won all things considered!


1968: Cliff Richard — Congratulations

A HUGE hit right across Europe, it gave poor people conviction that when it participated in Europe’s greatest music challenge, it just came next.

To compound an already painful situation, this was in the Royal Albert Hall, as Britain facilitated the occasion this year.

Composed by Glaswegian Bill Martin and Derry-conceived Phil Coulter, it was sprinter up to Spain’s La La.But, Cliff beat out everyone else in Belgium, Holland, Norway and even — unexpectedly — Spain itself. Perhaps Eurovision’s greatest secret.


1973: ABBA — Ring

Alright, this one didn’t actually make it into the finals, yet it demonstrates the way that we can miss a band who will turn out to be fairly great at something like this.In ’73, the remainder of Europe got to know the Swedish foursome, yet Britain and somewhere else hadn’t up to speed yet.They put this melody, with verses deciphered by Neil Sedaka, up for the challenge, however it came in third and wasn’t utilized. They would before long redress that, with next year’s Waterloo.


1991: Amina — C’est le dernier qui a parlé qui a raison (It’s the last one who talked who is on the right track)

THE French passage, by French-Tunisian vocalist lyricist Amina Annabi, just lost after a tied Eurovision last vote.It was a questionable second, chosen by European Broadcasting Union standards, and we favored this to the Swedish victor.Fortunately, Amina, who composed this melody, has proceeded to have an exceptionally effective vocation.
