Songs by Pop Stars That Could Have Won Eurovision The Year They Were Released

Disclaimer: OP has been into the wine to distract from the bleakness of life and decided to make this absolutely deranged post. Be kind.

The Eurovision Song Contest may be over for 2019, but Eurovision is truly an eternal state of mind.

This post is simply a collection of a few songs by famous pop artists, including a lesser-known track or two, that easily could have won Eurovision if they had been entered into the famous song competition during the year that they were released *according to a Canadian - don't judge me, Europe*.

Make sense? No? Well keep reading anyway.

What makes a song a potential Eurovision winner? Well...

1. Upbeat, Repetitive Lyrics About Love
Eurovision loves a good song about loving love. It's as simple as that really.

What could have won?
*NSYNC - I NEED LOVE - 1997


Does it sound European? Check.
Is it actually European and eligible for Eurovision? No.
Repetitive Lyrics? Check.
Love love love? Check.

[What song actually won in 1997?]

KATRINA AND THE WAVES - LOVE SHINE A LIGHT (UK) - 1997


Is this a better song about love? Meh.
Does it have a bangin' 90s dance beat? No.

And the winner of Eurovision 1997 is? *Nsync would have easily placed number 1 in 1997 with "I Need Love" if *NSync were Europeans and eligible for entry into the Eurovision Song Contest.


lol what even is this post? Click for more if you're so inclinedCollapse )
