I like his songs from 1980, 1981, 1982, 1999 and yes, 2006.  :-[

But I hope that he will keep his promise and will just "get out of our lives ". :mosking:

Well obviously the man is responsible for my all time favourite ESC song :heart: - but other than that absolute piece of perfection and a the song immediately before and after it I'm not a fan of many of these.

Ok, his songs are a bit too cliché, but the fact is that I like many of them, including this year's

I've said it before and I'll say it again...and you'll disagree again :) - but Theater really was a great performance.  Ein Bißchen Frieden stood out in quite a poor year - although I prefer the UK & Cyprus entries.

82 was an awful year and the two worse songs or almost made it to the top 2 (well i do dislike the dutch song more than the german one but i truly hate the israeli one).. my faves are the usual dk, belgium and spain there.. i don't like the cypriot boring song either!

I love :

1994: Wir geben 'ne Party - MeKaDo (Germany, 3rd place)
2003: Let's Get Happy - Lou (Germany, 11th place)
1981: Johnny Blue - Lena Valaitis (Germany, 2nd place)
1987: Laß die Sonne in Dein Herz - Wind (Germany, 2nd place)
1980: Theater - Katja Ebstein (Germany, 2nd place)
2002: I Can't Live Without Music - Corinna May (Germany, 21st place)


I don't mind :
1997: Zeit - Bianca Shomburg (Germany, 18th place)
2009: Just Get Out of My Life - Andrea Demirović (Montenegro, 11th place in the semi-final)
1982: Ein Bißchen Frieden - Nicole (Germany, 1st place)
2006: If We All Give A Little - six4one (Switzerland, 17th place)

I'm not keen on :
1979: Dschinghis Khan - Dschinghis Khan (Germany, 4th place)
1999: Reise nach Jerusalem - Sürpriz (Germany, 3rd place)

And I don't remember the rest of them.

Valentina Monetta was added to the list ever since...

Anywayz, for me the best is Germany 1979. i kinda like Germany 1982, Montenegro 2009 and San Marino 2013.
The worst disasters for me are Germany 1994, Germany 2003 and San Marino 2012...
