Eurovision Song Contest 1976, The Hague, Netherlands
« on: June 03, 2007, 04:43:26 PM »
EUROVISION SONG CONTEST 1976, THE HAGUE, NETHERLANDS


The biggest selling Eurovision song of all time won the 1976 contest.  Singing first with a quirky song and an equally quirky dance routine the UK entry was never challenged for the title.  The winning song went on to sell millions all over the world and has been declared as Eurovision's biggest selling single - beating Waterloo and Volare.  Peter, Sue & Marc returned for Switzerland singing in English (the 2nd of 4 entries in 4 different languages for the group).  Sandra returned for the home country having ditched Andres from 1972 and singing on her own.  Spain finished outside the top 10 for the first time since 1966.  They remain one of only 2 countries to have finished in the top 10 for 10 consecutive years (the other being the United Kingdom's long run of top 10 finishes (1959-1977 inclusive)).
