My top 5 songs from…Albania

The advantage of being first in the (Eurovision) alphabet is that Albania was both my first top 5 written, and it is also the first of my top 5s to get an update. A beautiful but relatively unknown (as yet) to tourists, their Eurovision history is perhaps a little less beautiful, though they are still one of the newer countries to the contest (having only entered in 2004).

Eurovision 2018 previews countdown: #20 ALBANIA – Eugent Bushpepa – “Mall”

We’re into the top 20! The crème de la crème of this year’s offerings – well according to me anyway… And first up in this top group is a country that may come as a surprise that it’s come so high – Albania. Of recent years, most Albanian entries have been mediocre angst-ridden female solo ballads, sometimes attempting vocal gymnastics – and none have appealed much to me (or Eurovision voters it has turned out!) but this year Albania has chosen differently.

Eurovision 2016 previews countdown: #39 ALBANIA – Eneda Tarifa – “Fairytale”

We’re back in the Balkans for number 39 in the countdown. Having come in the top 10 in last year’s preview chart they have plummeted in this year’s one. Last year, Albania’s high placing proved inaccurate as they finished 17th in the final; does that mean that this year they are underrated?
