Most things happen in cycles and by the time it takes our planet to cycle round the Sun we’ll be ready to sit down tomorrow night and enjoy (depnding on your viewpoint) the Eurovision Song Contest.
Since way back in 1956, this annual international singing (cough) event has given us (well, some of us) hours of enjoyment as we watch the entrants battle it out to become an instant star across the Eurozone.
Back in 1974, Abba, won the Eurovision for Sweden with their famous hit ‘Waterloo’. Since then, Abba have enjoyed worldwide success that has spanned 5 decades.
It’s interesting to map out Sweden’s winning achievements within the Eurovision contest… Since that 1974 win, Sweden have repeated their success in 1984, 91 and 99 – it’s almost cyclical!
Also take into account that Sweden’s latest effort ticks every box in the sort of song category that usually does well in the competition – it’s an anthemic Eurovision entry just waiting to be awarded the prize.
Politically, Sweden haven’t done much to upset any of the other Euro countries either… Which always helps in the voting.
It’s no surprise, then, that the bookies have made “Euphoria” by Loreen as the favourite to win Eurovision. Most likely competition will come from the Russian ‘grannies’, Serbia, Italy and even ol’ Engelbert Humperdinck as he tries to swoon his way to victory on behalf of the UK.
