Let’s face it, for all the complaining that the Big 5 have it easy at the Eurovision Song Contest, it’s actually not so glamourous. Sure they get an automatic spot in the final, but for many years this didn’t translate into placing on the scoreboard!
In this new series, ‘Best of the Big 5’, Eurovision Ireland are going to put the spotlight on the contest’s major financial contributors and find out just who is your favourite for each country.
You’ve voted for your Spanish favourites through 2 semi finals. Now we’re down to our 20 finalists – it’s time to crown YOUR favourite ever Eurovision entry from Spain!
Here are the fully adjudicated results from both our semi finals, one for songs from odd numbered years and one for even. Both polls are now closed, but if you want to take a peak and see where the other songs ranked, check them out on our Odd Years Poll and Even Years Poll.
|ODD YEARS||POINTS||EVEN YEARS||POINTS|
|1st||Eres Tú (1973)||380||Quédate Conmigo (2012)||379|
|2nd||Vuelve Conmigo (1995)||345||Dancing In The Rain (2014)||310|
|3rd||Dime (2003)||299||Bandido (1990)||248|
|4th||Bailar Pegados (1991)||227||Europe’s Living A Celebration (2002)||207|
|5th||Vivo Cantando (1969)||210||Say Yay! (2016)||163|
|6th||En Un Mundo Nuevo (1971)||196||La, La, La (1968)||138|
|7th||Amanacer (2015)||193||Lady, Lady (1984)||137|
|8th||La Noche Es Para Mi (2009)||189||Para Llenarme De Ti (2004)||106|
|9th||Dile Que La Quiero (2001)||152||Yo Soy Aquél (1966)||94|
|10th||Su Canción (1979)||148||Universo (2020)||88|
But don’t let these results influence you – all scores have been reset, so it really is anyone’s game! Any one of these 20 songs could be crowned your favourite Spanish Eurovision song!
As well as bragging rights ad infinitum, the winner of our poll will also be the inaugural inductee to the Eurovision Ireland Hall of Fame – but more on that in the coming weeks!
Use your votes wisely – as always, you can vote for your Top 10!
