Think I may have figured out the connection but will hold fire for the moment ... 2 Small - Petty
8 Flower mentioned by Shakespeare - Primrose (as in the primrose path to the eternal bonfire)

Abba's Ring Ring was an unsuccessful entry in the Swedish Song For Europe in 1973. Were the other two songs also unsuccessful entries in national Eurovision song contests in their original versions?
