History

San Marino has participated in the Eurovision Song Contest three times, debuting in the 2008 contest, followed by participation in 2011 and 2012.In June 2007, Radiotelevisione della Repubblica di San Marino (SMRTV), the Sammarinese public service broadcaster, indicated interest in joining the contest in the near future, all depending on the interest of the stockholders, especially Italian broadcaster RAI, which had withdrawn from the Contest in 1997. Five months later, the broadcaster confirmed their participation in the Eurovision Song Contest 2008 in Belgrade.

2008


The first Sammarinese entry in the Eurovision Song Contest was Miodio, with the Italian language song “Complice”. San Marino holds the honour of being the 50th country to participate at Eurovision, participating 5th in the first semi-final of the contest. However, Miodio failed to qualify for the final, receiving just 5 points in total and coming last.

lyrics

Accomplice
I never would have thought of you as my accomplice
Capable of understanding my every joy or sorrow

The peace of a moment
Is all that we are
Is all that I feel

And I see you as the immensity
Like a tear on a white page
Between sex and music, I thought of you
That you are so much more, something that isn’t there

And feeling you as a part of me
Is like having an angel
Sustain my every uncertain step

As always it rains
When we find ourselves
Suspended in the silence of a kiss

And I see you as the immensity
Like a tear on a white page
Between sex and music, I thought of you
That you are so much more, something that isn’t there

And I see you as the immensity
Like a tear on a white page
Between sex and music, I thought of you
That you are so much more, something that isn’t there

2011


SMRTV made an application to participate in the 2011 contest, which was later confirmed. It was the second participation in the ESC for San Marino.The singer Senit was announced as the Sammarinese entry at the Eurovision Song Contest 2011, which will be held in Düsseldorf, Germany. She sang “Stand By”, performed in English.San Marino failed to qualify to the final for the second time, coming 16 out of 19 with 34 points.

lyrics
Stand by
Oh, the sea: waves of eternity, waves of serenity
As I stare through them, all around me just dies
Tonight, can we pretend there’s no more time?
Let’s lock our doors and leave this endless world outside

But if you don’t mind, I will be here
Holding back those years that pass us by
And in a natural high you’ll hold my hand, we’ll take a breath
So tonight, if you don’t mind, I will stand by

Oh, this life, something so beautiful but hard at the same time
Taught me it could be gone in a blink of an eye
Tonight, can we pretend there’s no more time?
Let’s lock our doors and leave this endless world outside

If you don’t mind, I will be here
Holding back those years that pass us by
And in a natural high you’ll hold my hand, we’ll take a breath
So tonight, if you don’t mind, I will stand by

(I will be here) Holding back, holding back
(Those years that pass us by)
And in a natural high you’ll hold my hand, we’ll take a breath
So tonight, if you don’t mind, I will stand by

2012

lyrics
The social network song (oh oh uh oh oh)
Ooh… ooh… (I like)

Are you ready for a little chat and a song about the Internet?
It’s a story ’bout a social door you’ve never seen before
If you wanna be seen by everyone
Wanna be in the dream and have some fun
If you wanna be on the hook, simply take a look

Oh oh, ooh oh oh…
Everybody loves you so
Ooh ooh, ooh oh oh…
Everybody lets you know

Do you wanna be more than just a friend?
Do you wanna play cybersex again?
If you wanna come to my house
Then click me with your mouse

Hello, ooh oh oh…
Never gonna let you go

You’re loggin’ in, then it begins
And your computer is waking you, taking your time away
The scene is right for social light
You’re on the Internet, anywhere, anytime, night and day

Oh oh, ooh oh oh… (I like)
Everybody loves you so
Ooh ooh, ooh oh oh… (Mi piace)
Never gonna let you go

So you wanna make love with me?
Am I really your cup of tea?
Are you really the one that’s you and am I really me?

Oh oh, ooh oh oh… (I like)
Everybody loves you so
Social network, oh… (Mi piace)
Never gonna let you go

You’re loggin’ in with just a friend
But soon the Internet’s beeping and peeping around the bend
We used to greet friends on the street
But now it’s googling, giggling, gaggling when we meet

Beep beep, ooh oh oh…
How about a little chat?
Oh oh, network fans…
Meet you on the Internet!

Do you really like politics? Wanna talk about dirty tricks?
Are you really a sex machine or just some beauty queen?
Everybody is better than before
Everybody is calling out for more
Everybody in cyberville is knocking on your door

Beep beep, ooh oh oh… (I like)
Everybody does a show
Ooh ooh, ooh oh oh… (Mi piace)
If you like it, click and go

Now you know it is easy loggin’ in
For a little more fun and cyber sin
Wanna know what the net’s about?
The hard part’s loggin’ out?

Ooh ooh, ooh oh oh… now I’ve got a million friends
Goodbye network fans, this is how the story ends
Ooh ooh (Beep beep)
