The top Eurovision songs of all time

One of Chartwatch's kinder duties is to keep track of the scoring in the Eurovision Song Contest so you don't have to. The thing to remember about Eurovision is that a lot more countries vote now than used to, and the scoring systems changed recently to double up the points, so just looking at which songs have scored the most points in a contest doesn't tell you which have been most successful.

At Chartwatch we track this by awarding a score based on the maximum number of points an entry could have scored, which comes out as a percentage score. Up to the 2019 competition this is our list of the most successful Eurovision entries of all time. This list, and a lot of other Eurovision-related analysis, appears in Chartwatch 122 - available via http://www.chartwatch.co.uk/backnum_new.html.
