It’s that time of year and all is well with the Eurovision world. This was TFC’s celebration of all things ESC with added Euro-virgin Tim Harrison.
RAI is the Italian public broadcaster and no longer competes in the ESC. This is a great shame as Italian songs have contributed to the wonder that is the Eurovision Song Contest.
Te Deum – Eurogrooves
Fairytale – Alexander Rybak
Waterloo – ABBA
It’s 1974 and Eurovision unearths a super group that was to change many Australians lives.
Net Als Toen – Corry Broeken
O Julissi – Ishtar
Parlez Vous Francais – Baccara
Apres Toi – Vicky Leandros
It’s Just A Game – Bendik Singers
Ding-a-dong – Teach In
Nonsense song + silly costumes + big hair = Eurovision paydirt !\
Poupee De Cire, Poupee De Son – France Gall
Ge Steal Or Borrow – The New Seekers
Long Live Love – Olivia Newton John
Our Livvy lost out to ABBA and was not happy.
Just A Little Bit – Gina G
Take Me To Your Heaven – Charlotte Nilsson
Super Extra Wonder Shop – Nina
Back in 1973 this wonderful ditty was entered in the YLE (Finland’s public broadcaster) national song contest. It was stone cold, motherless last BUT it was part of the ESC process and deserves to be remembered each year on TFC’s ESC salute as “the worst song ever”.
Incidentally, this is the song which represented Finland that year.
Die For You – Antique
Everyway That I Can – Sentab Erener
Tipi Tii – Marion Rung
Satellite – Lena
TFC’s pick for ESC 2010
Ovo Je Balkan – Milan Stankovic
Diggi-loo Diggi-ley – Herreys
A cracking winner from a fraternal line up of Swedish Mormons.
De Troubadour – Lenny Kuhr
A unique winner – albeit sharing with three others in 1969. Dutch to the max.
