The Song “No Degree Of Separation” is a modern love ballad with a silent discreet melody, which can make addictive when listening to it for a couple of times. This song has style and approach and has already become a great radio hit in Italy. This is another good evidence that Italy belongs to the Eurovision Song Contest, as it always provides good entries and many of them become evergreens.

About me: Due to the fact that my parents are musicians, I have a gained a great enthusiasm for music. Since 1979 my interest in the Eurovision Song Contest has grown enormously. My first ESC I joined was in Dublin 1995. Six years later I founded the website eurovisionlive.com in the year 2001. The most fascinating part for me is the original idea of the Eurovision Song Contest – the peaceful contest of the European countries. I am very happy that I have the chance to contribute my little part for the greatest music show in the world.
