Renato Singing This Song
"Singing This Song" was the Maltese entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1975, performed in English (the first occasion on which the Maltese entry had not featured any lyrics in Maltese) by Renato.
The song is an up-tempo number, with Renato urging his listeners not to worry if bad things happen to them, but rather to "Join in singing this song". The final line of the song appeared in a medley of "attractive male performers" at the Congratulations special in late 2005.
After three entries, and having experienced only modest success, Malta withdrew from the Eurovision Song Contest. Interest in a return developed over the 1980s, but due to a restriction on the number of entrants, the country was ineligible to enter. Following The Netherlands' withdrawal from the 1991 Contest, however, Malta was able to take up the vacant position. Thus, the song was succeeded as Maltese representative at the 1991 Contest by Georgina & Paul Giordimaina with "Could It Be".
