"The Light In Our Soul", an up-tempo ballad, was the second single from the album My Number One by 2005 Eurovision winner Helena Paparizou. The song was written by Costas Bigalis and was chosen for the Eurovision Greek National Final, along with "O.K." and "Let's Get Wild," but it was "My Number One" that was chosen. The song was disqualified because it was revealed that a CD demo version of the song sung by another artist had been leaked on the internet and oddly made available for sale on the site of a popular e-tailer. Paparizou herself stated during a concert in Chicago Illinois that "The Light in Our Soul" was leaked on the internet, and the song was therefore disqualified from the Eurovision preselection. She then made a very jovial comment regarding internet file-sharing in general saying: "No no, I do not use the internet. This is why we don't like the internet."
