Each voter submitted his personal Top 5. In the next days we will reveal your Top 15. Today, we continue with the debut of a microstate.
The microstate San Marino made its debut in the Eurovision Song Contest 2008. Out of over 50 submitted songs, the band Miodio and their song “Complice” (“Accomplice”) were selected to represent San Marino. The alternative rock band consists of three Italian and two San Marinese members. In the lyrics, they call a lover their accomplice: “I never would have thought of you as my accomplice. Capable of understanding my every joy or sorrow” and a keeper: “And feeling you as a part of me. Is like having an angel. Sustain my every uncertain step”. The song was performed in Italian. With only 5 points (2 from Andorra, 3 from Greece), San Marino failed to qualify for the final and actually came last with their debut entry.
