JOHN BALLARD – SUCCESSFUL COMPOSER

Seeing the name JOHN BALLARD as one of the composers of the song for DO RE DOS in Moldova 2018, the name looked very familiar and asked around and Andreas in Germany reported he was also involved in 4 other Euro entries recently – namely 2013 – AZERBAIJAN – HOLD ME 2014 – RUSSIA – […]

LARS “DILLE” DIEDRICSON DIED

It is sad that with the final of the Swedish selection happening this weekend, we learn of the death of Lars “Dille” Diedricson. He was born on the 12th of August 1961 and died on the 6th of March 2017 in Gothenburg. He won the Eurovision Song Contest 1999 as the songwriter for “Take Me […]

So difficult to find a quote here because there is so much but least settle for this I’m sure I had my dinner watching something on TV, there’s not, I think, a single episode of Dallas that I didn’t see. Now the question is, is there a SINGLE EDITION of EUROVISION you have not seen? […]

COMPOSER’S PAGE

The idea is that as many of the Eurovision composers will be listed in our library but as you can imagine, this is a huge task. Big progress has been made with that of RALPH SIEGEL and BERND MEININGER and I plan to so do BJORN & BENNY before Vienna. All others will only be […]

COMPOSER PAGE – LATEST UPDATE

The composer page is a very long term project and I have started with Ralph Siegel but he had done most of his best work with Bernd Meinunger doing the lyrics, so I have started to add him as well. But Bernd has written probably the most lyrics in the history of anybody – even […]
