"What's Another Year" was Johnny Logan's first Eurovision Song Contest winner, achieving success in the 1980 edition of the Contest. This was Ireland's second Contest victory. Composed by Shay Healy, the song reached number one in the UK Singles Chart for two weeks in May. Famously, after being announced as the winner of the Contest, Logan was overcome with emotion and could not achieve the high notes near the end of the song in his reprise. Instead, he called out "I love you Ireland", a phrase he would repeat seven years later.

Johnny Logan volvería a ganar el festival como cantautor en 1987 con "Hold Me Now", y como autor en 1992 con "Why Me?".[cita requerida] "What's Another Year?" fue compuesta originalmente para el cantante Glen Curtin, pero cuando éste la rechazó, Bill Whelan arregló la canción para adaptarla al estilo vocal de Johnny Logan. El tema es una balada interpretada desde el punto de vista de un hombre que lleva tiempo intentando superar la pérdida de su amada, "¿qué es un año más/para alguien que se está acostumbrando a estar solo?" ("What's another year/To someone who is getting used to being alone?"). El autor Shay Healy la escribió al ver a su padre afrontar la muerte de su esposa. Musicalmente, la canción es reconocible por la introducción de saxofón interpretada por el músico escocés Colin Tully.[cita requerida] Logan grabó una versión en alemán titulada "Was ist schon ein Jahr".[cita requerida] En 2005, fue elegida como una de las 14 mejores canciones de la historia de Eurovisión para la Gala del 50 Aniversario.[cita requerida] (es)

  • "What's Another Year" was Johnny Logan's first Eurovision Song Contest winner, achieving success in the 1980 edition of the Contest. This was Ireland's second Contest victory. Composed by Shay Healy, the song reached number one in the UK Singles Chart for two weeks in May. The song is often misinterpreted as a power ballad, sung from the point of view of a man who has been waiting for the girl of his dreams to fall in love with him. On some level, he seems to recognise that she will never share his feelings, but he still holds them regardless. The title appears in the chorus, specifically "What's another year/To someone who is getting used to being alone?" In other words, he is prepared to wait as long as it takes. In reality, the song was written by Shay Healy (who also wrote "the Ultimate Country and Western Song" performed by Billy Connolly) about watching his father coming to terms with the death of his wife and companion, Mairin. When showband frontman Glen Curtin, the original choice of singer, turned down "What's Another Year", the song was rearranged by Bill Whelan to suit Johnny Logan's singing style. Whelan later composed Riverdance for the interval entertainment slot at the 1994 Eurovision Song Contest in Dublin. Musically, the song is easily identifiable by its saxophone introduction played by Scottish musician Colin Tully, who now lives and teaches in Wales. The success of "What's Another Year" launched Logan's Eurovision career (he would go on to success in 1987 with "Hold Me Now"). In addition, the song was selected as one of the 14 greatest Eurovision entries in a special to mark the 50th anniversary of the contest. It was covered by Shane McGowan of The Pogues in the "Song for Eurotrash" cover album of 1998. Famously, after being announced as the winner of the Contest, Logan was overcome with emotion and could not achieve the high notes near the end of the song in his reprise. Instead, he called out "I love you Ireland", a phrase he would repeat seven years later. The song was performed seventeenth on the night (following France's Profil with "Hé, hé M'sieurs dames" and preceding Spain's Trigo Limpio with "Quédate esta noche"). At the close of voting, it had received 143 points, placing 1st in a field of 19.The song was succeeded as Eurovision winner at the Eurovision Song Contest 1981 by British band Bucks Fizz and the song "Making Your Mind Up".It was succeeded as Irish representative at the 1981 Contest by Sheeba with "Horoscopes". In Germany, Johnny Logan released a German-language version of "What's Another Year", entitled "Was ist schon ein Jahr". In Portugal the single was released (in English) with a minor typing error on the front sleeve as "What's Another Year!" (en)
  • "What´s Another Year" (em português : O que é mais um ano?) foi a balada escolhida para representar a Irlanda no Festival Eurovisão da Canção 1980, interpretada em inglês por Johnny Logan (verdadeiro nome: Seán Michael Patrick Sherrard). O referido tema tinha letra e música de Shay Healy e foi orquestrada por Noel Kelehan. Foi a segunda vitória da Irlanda no evento, obtendo 143 pontos. Foi a décima-sétima canção a desfilar no Festival, depois da canção francesa, interpretada pelos Profil e antes da canção espanhola interpretada pelos Trigo Limpio. De referir que esta canção foi número um no top britânico em 1980, duas semanas no mês de maio de 1980. A canção é uma balada que nos fala do ponto de vista de um homem que tem estado à espera que a rapariga dos seus sonhos caia também de amores por ele. Se bem que ele reconheça que ela pode nunca chegar, ele não se importa esperar o tempo que for necessário. (um ano ou mais). Musicalmente, a canção é facilmente identificável pela sua introdução que contém som de um saxofone. O som de saxofone foi tocado pelo músico escocês Colin Tully que actualmente ensina no País de Gales. (pt)
