Is there CD compilations of each Eurovision contest from the past? If not, there should be. I'm having a difficult time finding CD versions of past Eurovision songs that have excellent sound quality. I can't find "You're Summer (You Never Tell Me No)" on CD in ANY form...and this one is my favorite of all time, but only found a CD which is a vinyl transfer, complete with pops and clicks:
