Scott Fitzgerald

UNITED KINGDOM 2003

The 1988 UK representative, Scott Fitzgerald came a very close second - by only one point might we add! Sorry Celine but he’s always been a winner in our eyes!

We are delighted to have Scott on his 30 year anniversary since participating in the Eurovision Song Contest! Born in Glasgow, Scotland, Scott represented the United Kingdom in 1988 with the song ‘Go’. His song was written and composed by Julie Forsyth, daughter of the late Sir Bruce Forsyth. During the voting Scott was pipped at the last minute by Celine Dion, who won for Switzerland with ‘Ne Partez Pas Sans Moi’ by just one single point!

 

Scott has had many other hits other than his ESC entry. Some of which include ‘Judy Played The Jukebox’ in 1974 and the title track to glam rock movie ‘Never Too Young To Rock’ in 1975. In 1978 he dueted with Yvonne Keeley for the song ‘If I Had Words’, as song which was featured in the 1995 film Babe, how sweet!

 

Keeping Eurovision in the family, Scott’s son Ki Fitzgerald co-wrote this year’s Finnish entry ‘Monsters’ for Saara Aalto.


Check out Scott performing ‘If I had words’ on Top of the Pops back in the day! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aIZbF9WsCcs

Go

I never felt like this before
Seein’ you again only makes me sad
I recall the times when we
Were in love and had everything, it makes me so sad

Time is meant to heal the pain I thought was gone
Seein’ you again has made it carry on

Go before you break my heart once more
I know that’s what you come here for
Go before you say “I love you” the way you did
The day before you walked away from me

Lookin’ back on the times we had
Things were beautiful then, but how quick they’ve changed
One day you were in love with me
Then the next, so suddenly, he came along

Time is meant to heal the pain I thought was gone
Seein’ you again has made it carry on, yeah

Go before you break my heart once more
I know that’s what you come here for
Go before you say “I love you” the way you did
The day before you walked away from me

 

(Go before you break my heart once more)
Just go, just go away
(I know that’s what you come here for)
Just leave me behind to face another day

 

Go before you say “I love you” the way you did
The day before you walked away from me

The day before you walked away from me
