Ones that Got Away
« on: February 02, 2009, 12:22:36 AM »
Yep. Every escforum needs one - a thread for all ESC NF entries which should've gone to ESC.


I'll start this off with the wonderful Magnus Uggla from Melodifestivalen 1979 with the song "Johnny the Rocker"

well except for the times my MF winners are actual MF winners, most of the time the one song that should have won MF would have been an awesome esc entry..

i just started watching dutch NSF and will have full rankings done by next week.. so far my biggest surprise was a great song, only 2nd in 92 (but i liked Humphrey Campbell as well, just not as good)

NSF 1992: Laura Vlasblom - Gouden Bergen

indeed, in 93 and 96 some songs are totally forgotten, some people consider that we should have them in esc as much as semi songs... i don't since we don't have them in the same format performed live like nowadays semi songs, but i DO consider them esc entries, just 'unranked'
