I know nothing about Eurovision, but I know that this list is a joke on account of "Run Away" being absent. Epic Sax Guy does not approve.

EDIT: Nevermind, they got in with another song. But it's not as EPIC as the first one.

I dunno, man. "Run Away" is a classic, but "Hey Mamma!" is a better song overall in my opinion. As a Eurovision fan and a fan of music criticism, this is some of the most thoughtful commentary I've ever read about it. Guy doesn't just go into the songs' context within Eurovision, but also as individual works of music meant to be taken seriously on their own, and it's made me reevaluate a few entries I'd totally dismissed. If you want to get educated, the songs here are a pretty good starting point as to Eurovision this past decade. A few I'd add that aren't here are:
- Jon Lilygreen and the Islanders - Life Looks Better in Spring (Cyprus 2010)
- Eva Rivas - Apricot Stone (Armenia 2010)
- Jessy Matador - Allez Ola Ole (France 2010)
- Sjonni's Friends - Coming Home (Iceland 2011)
- Anna Rossinelli - In Love for a While (Switzerland 2011)
- Buranovskiye Babushki - Party for Everybody (Russia 2012)
- Pernilla Karlsson - Nar jag blundar (Finland 2012)
- Kaliopi - Crno i belo (North Macedonia 2012)
- Roberto Bellarossa - Love Kills (Belgium 2013)
- Koza Mostra feat. Agathonas Iakovidis - Alcohol is Free (Greece 2013)
- Mei Feingold - Same Heart (Israel 2014)
- Basim - Cliche Love Song (Denmark 2014)
- Pollaponk - No Prejudice (Iceland 2014)
- Molly Sterling - Playing with Numbers (Ireland 2015)
- Il Volo - Grande Amore (Italy 2015)
- Voltaj - De la capat (Romania 2015)
- PKN - Ainaa mun pittaa (Finland 2015)
- Douwe Bob - Slow Down (Netherlands 2016)
- Frans - If I Were Sorry (Sweden 2016)
- Artsvik - Fly with Me (Armenia 2017)
- Naviband - Story of My Life (Belarus 2017)
- Jacques Houdek - My Friend (Croatia 2017)
- Norma John - Blackbird (Finland 2017)
- Alma - Requiem (France 2017)
- JOWST - Grab the Moment (Norway 2017)
- Rasmussen - Higher Ground (Denmark 2018)
- Elina Nechayeva - La forza (Estonia 2018)
- Madame Monsieur - Mercy (France 2018)
- Claudia Pascoal feat. Isaura - O jardim (Portugal 2018)
- ZiBBZ - Stones (Switzerland 2018)
- Jonida Maliqi - Ktheju tokes (Albania 2019)
- Kate Miller-Heidke - Zero Gravity (Australia 2019)
- Chingiz - Truth (Azerbaijan 2019)
- Lake Malawi - Friend of a Friend (Czech Republic 2019)
- Serhat - Say Na Na Na (San Marino 2019)

YMMV based on the kind of music you like, but those are some of my favorites that didn't make the cut here.
