THE YEAR THAT THE MEN SHARED THE SAME HAIR
See what I mean…
From left to right: Fernando Torno from Portugal (go Tambourine man!); Zdravko Čolić representing Yugoslavia (na-na-na-na-na!); Cliff Richard, UK (‘Power to the bees!’…yes, he really sings that)
Strong voices this year. Lyrics not so strong. A veritable potpourri.
THE OFFICIAL TOP THREE
MY TOP THREE
MOCEDADES. ERES TÚ.
Lovely traditional song. You’ll be singing along in no time.
Encouragement Award (Dance)
UK: For eye-opening, knee-knocking & frankly quite risque dance moves, you can’t go past Cliff. Well, you can. And probably should.
The Ringo Starr Award for Fashion Excellence
SWITZERLAND: Not the singer, my friends, the conductor. The suit of the evening. As luscious as a Cadbury Rose chocolate wrapper on a hot day. Go Hervé go! Sadly, all I have is a headshot with an ever-so-unsatisfying yet tantalising hint of bowtie…
Award for Enthusiasm
Close tie between FINLAND (Category: Hand-clapping) and YUGOSLAVIA (Category: Shiny trumpets).
