Conchita scores high in every regard for me, even though the song is basically an OK Bond pastiche.
Dare I say that Waterloo, despite being a high point in 20th century Eurovision, doesn't compare to most ABBA hits or other big Eurovision hitters. It's what it represents... the birth of a beloved international supergroup.
Taken on its own merit, it’s nowhere near the best ABBA song or the best Eurovision song.
But my one-size-fits-all response to anyone who starts moaning about Waterloo constantly being voted the greatest Eurovision song is that we probably wouldn’t even be discussing Eurovision had Waterloo not happened.
