On this new series of weekly posts, we remind you the best entries that unfortunately finish last. Sometimes, even good songs don’t manage to succeed and we are here to freshen up your memory!
We continue our new series of weekly posts with something from the late 1990s. The year was 1999 when Cyprus was represented by Marlain with the song “Tha ‘nai Erotas”. Sadly, her song finished 23rd out of 24 competing entries in the final with 2 points both from the UK. Sadly, Greece didn’t participate that year in order to give it 12 more points. 😛
Marlain was born as Marlain or Marlen Angelides (Μαρλαίν ή Μαρλέν Αγγελίδου). She is a Cypriot singer and actress born on September 6, 1978, in Athens, Greece. Due to her father’s job she had lived in many cities. She had tried to represent Cyprus many times in 1998, 1999, 2008 and 2009, making it only one time. Marlain was also part of the successful Greek girl-band Hi-5.
The song was considered a fan-favourite but her live performance wasn’t as expected and she finished second from the last.
What do you think about the song? Was last its deserved place? Let us know in the comment box below!
