Here are my choices for best songs at the 1994 Eurovision Song Contest, which was held in Dublin, Ireland on April 30. Except for the winning entry from Ireland, I had not heard any of these songs until now.
|My Rank||Country||Title, Artist||Eurovision Final Ranking|
|1||France||“Je suis un vrai garçon”, Nina Morato||7|
|2||Hungary||“Kinek mondjam el vétkeimet?”, Friderika Bayer||4|
|3||Cyprus||“Íme ánthropos ki egó”, Evridiki||11|
|4||Germany||“Wir geben ‘ne Party”, MeKaDo||3|
|5||Russia||“Vechny strannik”, Youddiph||9|
|6||Ireland||“Rock ‘n’ Roll Kids”, Paul Harrington and Charlie McGettigan||1|
|7||Estonia||“Nagu merelaine”, Silvi Vrait||24|
|8||Poland||“To nie ja!”, Edyta Górniak||2|
|9||Netherlands||“Waar is de zon?”, Willeke Alberti||23|
|10||Austria||“Für den Frieden der Welt”, Petra Frey||17|
Greece and Cyprus did give each other 12 points this year. While there were some good songs in the contest, the majority seemed to be rather bland ballads that all sounded alike. Not the strongest year for entries. Cypriot singer Evridiki was my choice for 3rd best in the 1992 Eurovision Song Contest.
