Mike Connaris
10 years ago Connaris gave us the wonderful Stronger Every Minute, performed by Lisa Andreas, which ended fifth, the highest place Cyprus ever achieved in Eurovision.
He wrote and produced several Cypriot national final entries including If You Go for Constantinos (2005) and Invincible (2006) and Moments Of Madness (2008) for Eleni Skarpari.
He also wrote a few NF entries in the U.K. including Sexy Sadie's I Won't Let You Do This To Me (2000), Alberta's Don't It Make You Feel So Good (1998) and personal favorite I Just Wanna Make Love 2U by Lois (1996)

  1. The "Promo Mix" is different from both the original and the Eurovision Mix. You can hear a difference at 1:50.
