It's called Scandi-pop. A subgenre that's sadly been struggling in recent years internationally, imo, Scandinavian countries produce the best pop music (and they're not bad on dance either), so I'm always supporting most of what the Scandinavian countries put into Eurovision. Personally, I'd emigrate to Sweden just for the music scene. (They've had Popular at #1 for 4 weeks in the lead up to the contest)

I only know Scandinavian music through death metal (and they're very good at it, and well known for that). I particularly like melodic death metal. To have them in the Eurovision would be very very entertaining, in several ways

Thinking back, I can barely remember any song that has actually won the contest. If asked I could perhaps name two off the top of my head.

ABBA "Waterloo" (which was b4 I was even born)
Bucks Fizz "Making Your Mind Up" but then again that could be because of the skirts coming off.

Aside from those no song really sticks in my mind.
I think I can name a few but the 1st one I can remember is this one :

Not on strike.
