As you know I love the Eurovision Song Contest and thanks to my friend Pepperfly I now have more than 1200 songs(!) that have been performed during any of the over 50 contests. There are some proper gems that never made it big.

This is Eddy Friel for Ireland. Ireland had already won three times in a row and RTE (the national broadcaster) was getting in a bit of a financial meddle, since staging a show like the ESC is fairly expensive! So, for 1995 they sent a song that some considered okay, but not brilliant. But I love this song to bits and can listen to it over and over again. Which I sometimes do as well...


  1. It does seem very 1995-ish or earlier, which ain't necessarily a bad thing.

  2. Whatever happened to crooning?

  3. A very pretty song, Mara. I like it. He has a nice voice, and the girl singers backing him up aren't overpowering, but I could live without the accordion. LOL
    C U soon.

  4. I first thought it was Jacques Brel ! Nice song !

  5. It's a lovely song and I adore his accent!
