The best five (or 6) Eurovision songs

Here are my top five Eurovision songs:

5.  J'aime la vie - the 13 year old Sandra Kim sang this song for Belgium in 1983 and it won.  

4.  Making your mind up - Bucks Fizz sang this winner for the UK in 1981.  

3.  Rise like a Phoenix - Conchita Wurst with the winner for Austria in 2014.  This bearded lady sings a song that should be the theme for a James Bond film.  

2.  Amor Pelos Dios - Salvador Sobral wins for Portugal in 2017.  A Fado song, very different from the usual Eurovision fare.  

1.  Waterloo - Abba win for Sweden in 1974.  Probably the most famous winner, and the winners to have gone on to the greatest fame.  

Special mention must be made of Love, Love, Peace, Peace, a song that sums perfectly the Eurovision spirit:
