    Do any of these entries in this list - or the list of 200+ scoring songs pre-2016 - surprise you? 'Beautiful Mess' stands out, for me, as one song that was particularly over-scored - I can't remember the last time I saw anyone in the Eurovision fandom reference this song. Germany is the only Big Five country without a 400+ scoring entry, whilst this list really highlights how stellar France 2021, Switzerland 2021, Spain 2022, and UK 2022 have been for reversing their country's Eurovision fortunes. Portgual's 2017 score feels unassailable at this point. Poor Italy in 2015 - the 5th highest scorer in the pre-2016 system, the televote winner, yet still only 3rd place overall...

    The whole top five of that 400 club is very overrated, but yes, Beautiful Mess particularly so. I could barely remember the song when he performed it and I certainly can’t remember it now.

  3. The 500 club list isn’t actually that impressive, in my opinion. I voted for Sound of Silence because of the incredible vocal performance she gave.

    The 400 club has a much better crop of songs.

  4. What on earth possessed Europe to vote for Beautiful Mess?
