all time rank: the position that the country and the song have between all the eurovision songs
chart from the game vote for the best eurovision song.
The Eurovision Song Contest 1990, the 35th in the series, was held in Zagreb, Yugoslavia on 5 May 1990. The presenters were Helga Vlahović Brnobić and Oliver Mlakar.The fall of the European communism and the German re-unification was the main issue of the songs of the 1990 Eurovision Song Contest in Zagreb. The lyrics of several entries celebrated the revolution and democratisation that had occurred in central and eastern Europe in the preceding months, focusing especially on the fall of the Berlin Wall in November 1989, such as in the Norwegian and Austrian entries.The Eurovision Song Contest 1990 was the first to implement an age rule.Toto Cutugno was the winner of this contest with the song “Insieme: 1992”. This was the second and most recent victory for Italy, the first one having been “Non ho l’età”, performed by Gigliola Cinquetti in 1964.Both the French and the Italian songs went on to be big hits in Europe and were played all summer long. Even nowadays, both songs are regarded as Eurovision evergreens.
Malta had wished to return to the contest for the first time in 15 years, but Eurovision rules prevented them from returning due to a maximum of 22 entries allowed to compete. A national final was held in Malta, which was won by Maryrose Mallia with “Our Little World of Yesterday”.
The Spanish performance was plagued by technical problems. First the backing track failed to play, then it was started too early. The delegation’s conductor completely lost control and the Spanish duo, Azúcar Moreno, left the stage. The second attempt was successful and the duo ended up in fifth place. The Belgian entrant, Philippe Lafontaine, reached the 12th place with his song Macédomienne. Afterwards, he refused to release the CD as the song was a love token for his Macedonian wife, however he did release it years later to help a refugee project in Bosnia & Herzegovina. Eurovision veteran, Serge Gainsbourg, wrote the French entry White And Black Blues performed by Joelle Ursull which was a spectacular multicultural song with lots of African drumming. It ended up sharing the second place with Ireland.
The 1990 contest was the first to feature an official mascot, called Eurocat, created by Joško Marušić. This mischievous purple cat popped up during the ‘postcards’ of each of the 22 entries, which also included travelogues of the country about to perform, in conjunction with the European Year of Tourism 1990.
