Here are the ever greens according to the voters in the charts of the national entries. I have counted all the average points of the entries from the countries which have participated at least 20 times in 1956-1998: Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Luxembourg, Monaco, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugul, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, United Kingdom & Former Yugoslavia.
The countries which are not included: Bosnia-Herzegovina, Croatia, Cyprus, Estonia, FYR Macedonia, Hungary, Iceland, Lithuania, Malta, Monaco, Morocco, Poland, Rumania, Russia, Slovakia and Slovenia
This chart is based on the real votes for the national entries and not the votes for the particular songs.
Here is an example how I counted these evergreens:
Leader of Swiss chart is: 1988, Ne partez pas sans moi
Total amount of the points of this entry was 247
There are 31 voters in the Swiss chart
So the average points of one voter to this entry was 7,97

So the average means that how many points one voter has given to that particular songs in that national chart.
This chart is no kind of chart of the best entries ever. This is only to show how unanimous the voters are of the best national favourites.
This kind of counting isn't good for the old countries which have had many entries during the history of the ESC.
