Top 37 with Comments – Our Favourite Eurovision 2024 Songs

Disclaimer: This article was written 60 days before the contest and -more importantly- before seeing any rehearsals or live performances. We knew our opinions would change after the contest, and it did, as you have probably witnessed on our YouTube channel (BMMag) Anyway, if you are wondering what our initial thoughts about the songs were, keep on reading! Thanks 🙂

Here is the video you have all been waiting for. Just keep in mind that these are not our predictions. When we say our favourites, we don’t mean “favourites to win”. That will be another video, and it will clearly be titled as our predictions. These are just the songs we like.

One last disclaimer: Eurovision is a long marathon and we will definitely change our opinions about the songs after seeing all of them live and especially after the rehearsals.

Our comments for each song will be with you in a moment, so don’t go anywhere.

Without further ado, let’s move on to our favourites.

37- Czechia – Aiko – Pedestal
This is our least favourite song this year. You guys know Czechia’s song last year was one of our favourites, so it’s nothing personal 😉

36- Ireland – Bambie Thug – Doomsday Blue
People who like Ireland’s song selection this year say that it’s different. True, it is different, but still nothing special and a bit messy for our taste.

35- Malta – Sarah Bonnici – Loop
We can see why it would be so tempting to clone Chanel, because she was simply amazing. But this is like a scientific experiment gone horribly wrong. So similar, yet so far away from the qualities that made the original stand out.

34- Luxembourg – Tali – Fighter
We are a bit disappointed because we were very excited for Luxembourg’s return to the contest after a long absence. This song is not bad, but we find it a bit generic.

33- San Marino – Megara – 1111
This is the best song among the bottom 5 of our list. But this doesn’t change the fact that Loredana should have won the national final.

32- Estonia – 5miinust & Puuluup – (nendest) narkootikumidest ei tea me (küll) midagi
We can see why some people like this song, but we think this is one of the weakest Estonian entries in recent years.

31- Netherlands – Joost Klein – Europapa
Good lyrics but not the type of Eurovision song we like.

30- Australia – Electric Fields – One Milkali (One Blood)
Not bad, but it doesn’t change the fact that this is a huge downgrade for Australia, after last year’s banger by Voyager.

29- Finland – Windows95man – No Rules
When you make a bold statement like “No Rules” we understand that it may sound like a good idea to back it up with invisible slips. But really, it’s not. We may rate it higher next time, if we can focus on the song. J

28- United Kingdom – Olly Alexander – Dizzy
This song is like a time machine. You are immediately transported back to the 90s as soon as the song begins. It’s definitely a good song and we like it. The only problem is it feels like we have heard it many times before and that may hurt its chances.

27- Portugal – Iolanda – Grito
It’s pretty obvious that the strength of this song comes from its lyrics. But we don’t understand a word, and we don’t like the tune enough, to rank it higher.

26- Moldova – Natalia Barbu – In the Middle
If you look at the odds this entry is a bottom dweller. We think it deserves more attention.

25- Serbia – Teya Dora – Ramonda
This is yet another one of those “not-bad” songs. We find it weaker compared to other Serbian entries in recent years.

24- Lithuania – Silvester Belt – Luktelk
Lithuania has been sending some very good songs in recent years. Luktelk is no exception, but this was the highest we could place it on the list.

23- Slovenia – Raiven – Veronika
This is a good song and we reserve the right to move it to higher places after we see all the live performances.

22- Albania – Besa – Titan
One of the better Albanian entries in recent years. This is especially true after the Revamped English version was released.

21- Spain – Nebulossa – Zorra
We actually like this song, but there is something we can’t exactly pinpoint that prevents us from placing it higher right now. If they get the staging and the vocals right, this song can totally make an impact in the grand final.

20- Norway – Gåte – Ulveham
We don’t think this is a bad song. But we do think it’s one of the weaker Norweigan entries in recent years.

19- Iceland – Hera Björk – Scared of Heights
We like this song. It’s a decent effort with good vocals, but it won’t make a big impact in the competition.

18- Armenia – Ladaniva – Jako
Armenia didn’t disappoint us. This song is not as strong as the songs from the last two years, but it is still a lot of fun.

17- Greece – Marina Satti – Zari
This is the Greece we were longing for in Eurovision. Traditional, yet very modern at the same time. We don’t care if she wins or loses. We just can’t wait to see this on Eurovision stage.

16- Ukraine – alyona alyona & Jerry Heil – Teresa & Maria
This song is definitely an upgrade over last year’s entry. But it is still a tad bit overrated if you ask us.

15- Latvia – Dons – Hollow
This is a very good song with even better vocals. We like it.

14- Georgia – Nutsa Buzaladze – Fire Fighter
Georgia had one of the best songs last year but still didn’t qualify. This year’s entry is also very good. Hopefully it won’t share the same fate.

13- Cyprus – Silia Kapsis – Liar
If you just showed us this clip with no further information, we could have easily guessed that this is Cyprus. It’s your regular upbeat Cypriot entry and we absolutely love it.

12- Azerbaijan – Fahree feat. Ilkin Dovlatov – Özünlə Apar
This is the most Azerbaijani song since 2009. It’s not what we have come to expect from Azerbaijan in recent years, so it was a bit of a surprise. But overall we like the song. Good luck Azerbaijan!

11- Poland – Luna – The Tower
We think this is a pretty good song. She sounds great in the video. If only she can pull off those kind of vocals in May, she will be fine.

10- Germany – Isaak – Always on the Run
Germany is almost always underrated in Eurovision. We noticed this song is getting some undeserved hate from a lot of people in the community. Well, let us break it to you, this is actually a very good song with very strong vocals.

9- Israel – Eden Golan – Hurricane
This is a very strong entry from Israel. The current political situation will probably hinder its chances of getting a good result, but still, this is a good song.

8- Sweden – Marcus & Martinus – Unforgettable
Yet another good song from Sweden. We think Effortless by Jacqline would have been a better choice, but this is still a good one. They don’t usually choose the best song at Melfest, but they always send a good song.

7- Italy – Angelina Mango – La noia
She has the potential to win it all. We could see why everyone is so high on this song. Unlike most people, we like it a normal amount and think it’s a bit overrated.

6- France – Slimane – Mon amour
This is a very good song with very strong vocals. The only problem with it is that it was probably released too early.

5- Belgium – Mustii – Before the Party’s Over
This song can seriously win it all. It’s that good. Looking forward to seeing it live.

4- Switzerland – Nemo – The Code
Another song with winning potential. If the vocals turn out to be half as good as they are in the video, there is a real chance.

3- Denmark – Saba – Sand
We know this is a surprise for most of you. But we just love this song and Saba’s performance. She is grossly underrated.

2- Croatia – Baby Lasagna – Rim Tim Tagi Dim
They are the huge favourites to win it all this year. We like this song a lot. If this was a predictions video, we would have placed them on top.

1- Austria – Kaleen – We Will Rave
90s Eurodance vibes are back with a bang and we are loving it. This song is not topping the odds and it’s not one of the favourites to win the contest. But it should be. We just can’t stop listening to it.

As we said in the beginning, our opinions about the songs may change after live performances and rehearsals, but right now, these are our favourites. We would like to know about your favourites too, so please share them in the comments section.
