Music Monday: All Those Crazy Eurovision Songs

 Music Monday: This totally new territory for me as we will be looking at some the winners of  the Eurovision Song Contest. The Eurovision Song Contest actually just ended on Saturday. It has been held for 65 years and here are some of the previous winners:

1969- Boom Bang-A-Bang-Lulu:

1979- Hallelujah- Milk and Honey:

1989- Rock Me- Riva:

1997- Love Shine A Light-Katrina and the Waves:

2005- My Number One- Helena Paparizou:

2016- 1944- Jamala:

And the winner in 2021- Zittie E. Bunoi - Maneskin:

I have learned some new music and learned about Eurovision. It is pretty cool. 


  1. Ohhhh Patrick I LOVE Eurovision - have watched it for many years (and converted my daughter in the process - and now her husband too!) I love the quirky acts the best - Lordi is our go-to for defining the weirdness that is Eurovision! ( Nice to meet a fellow devotee.

  2. I discovered it about six years ago and really like the whole idea behind it, and that they're generally all European acts, so you get to hear what the rest of the world listens to. I hope you enjoyed discovering new music!

  3. Patrick,

    Someone in Blogosphere introduced to me to ESC a few years back but I didn't know until John put this prompt to us that they've been doing this for 65 years.

    Maneskin is a bit edgy sounding. I like the music beat. I have no idea what they are singing about, though. I'm going to check out further Jaamla and Helena Paparizou. Thanks for sharing the 4M dance floor with us this week. I went ahead and added you to the party, my friend. Have a boogietastic week!

  4. Most of this was new to me, but I have always like Lulu and Katrina and the Waves. and we picked the same video, Milk and Honey.

  5. Katrina and the Waves are our favourites, but this was a great playlist. Pawkisses for a Happy Week ahead🐾😽💞

  6. I enjoyed Lulu and Katrina and the Waves (in fact, I knew the Katrina and the Waves song, and I don't even know how I heard it.). I was able to watch the finals of ESC on Peacock, and I enjoyed Maneskin. But the song that really impressed me of your set was "1944". A political statement - caught me a bit by surprise, especially the music, which started out a little weird - but by the end, I was agreeing it deserved to win its contest. Alana
