Time for a Eurovision re-birth

Eurovision has been going since 1956, with over 1500 songs being performed since the first contest in Lugano.

Michael, Liam and Io went back to the years of their births to share some of their favourites. Io got an ’80s schooling, Michael dished up a guilty pleasure and Liam had the chance to play something from Estonia.

What song is your favourite from the year of your birth? Share it with us via the socials.
