Spotify rankings of all Eurovision 2018 songs


Success on stage at Eurovision doesn't always translate into chart success or that your song will continue to be listened to after contest.

We've had a look at the numbers from Spotify to see which songs were streamed most before during and after Eurovision in 2018. The top 10 were:

1. Eleni Foureira - Fuego - 48,170,949

2. Michael Schulte - You Let Me Walk Alone - 30,216,260

3. Netta - Toy - 28,610,295

4. Benjamin Ingrosso - Dance You Off - 24,609,087

5. Mikolas Josef - Lie To Me - 22,379,877

6. Ermal Meta and Fabrizio Moro - Non mi avete fatto niente - 19,160,972

7. Amaia, Alfred - Tu Cancion - 13,899,271

8. Rasmussen - Higher Ground - 9,246,724

9. Cesar Sampson - Nobody But You - 9,071,679

10. Saara Aalto - Monsters - 8,069,108

'Fuego' has been a popular song among fans and this has translated into success for Eleni, with almost 20 million more streams than second place. That went to Germany's Michael Schulte whose radio friendly song beat out Eurovision winner 'Toy' which had to settle for third.

Amaia and Alfred's success in Spain's OT translated to their top 10 position and Saara Aalto's popularity also led to a high standing. The rest of the rankings were:

11. Madame Monsieur - Mercy - 7,640,779

12. Alexander Rybak - That's How You Write a Song - 6,922,684

13. Jessica Mauboy - We Got Love - 6,442,571

14. Waylon - Outlaw In Em - 5,818,097

15. Gromee - Light Me Up - 5,644,141

16. EQUINOX - Bones - 4,887,404

17. Ryan O'Shaughnessy - 4,476,434

18. Melovin - Under the Ladder - 4,212,825

19. Ieva Zasimauskaite - When We're Old - 3,622,245

20. SuRie - Storm - 3,558,580

21. Elina Nechayeva - La Forza - 3,148,530

27. AWS - Viszlat nyar - 1,790,909

28. ZiBBZ - Stones - 1,609,698

29. Eye Cue - Lost and Found - 1,469,903

30. Sanja Ilic & Balkanika - Nova Deca - 1,427,582

31. Laura Rizzotto - Funny Girl - 1,415,499

32. Christabelle - Taboo - 1,406,845

33. Julia Samoylova - I Won't Break - 1,248,187

34. Eugent Bushpepa - Mall - 1,238,667

35. AISEL - X My Heart - 1,208,469

36. Franka - Crazy - 1,099,077

37. The Humans - Goodbye - 1,078,018

38. Ari Olafsson - Our Choice - 882,443

39. Jessika ft Jeniger Brening - Who We Are - 816,921

40. Sevak Khanagyan - Qami - 775,814

41. Alekseev - Forever - 693,455

42. Iriao - For You - 623,207

43. Vanja Radovanovic - Inje - 598,545

Songs that relied on strong vocals (Estonia, Albania) or those where staging elevated their position (Moldova, Serbia) didn't see high numbers of streams.

Making the final is also vital, only one non-qualifier (Poland) managed to make the top 20.

Regardless of how they performed, having the exposure of Eurovision gave the majority of artists their most streams ever and by some margin. 37 of the 43 songs received over 1 million streams.

Australia's Jessica Mauboy finished in 13th in the Spotify rankings but is still 5 million streams off 2017 entrant Isaiah with 'Don't Come Easy'. Dami Im's 'Sound of Silence' has 14 million.
