I agree about Celia Lawson - it's a lovely song and it's not as though it's a bad performance either.

But Remedios got what she deserved IMO :)

I agree about Antes do adeus - Celia Lawson. Imo it's a very good song!
I also think that Turkey '87 and Iceland '89 deserved points.

Venedig Im Regen was indeed a good song. Maybe the performance could be better, but the song was nice.
Disappointing that Thomas Forstner got 0 points in 1991, in 1989 he got 97 points with the beautiful song "Nur ein Lied".

yes it was a lovely cute song, with a good melody and great vocals to support it.. but yes Thomas didn't look at handsome in 1991 as he did in 1989 where his purple suit made him look young fresh a little candid and made the juries melt, but in 1991 it made him look amateur and untalented, wrong impression that killed him (getting below "Brazil" !)

That's really true. He looks good in 1989 (great suit indeed), but in 1991 his hair was too long and his outfit didn't look good.
Nevertheless it was brave that he returned after such a good performance in Lausanne.


1989


1991

Most deserved 0 points IMO are

Austria 62 - :ack: words cannot describe how hideous this thing is
Norway 63 - :yawn: so dull I can barely listen to it without falling asleep - no wonder Anita herself never recorded the song.
Sweden 63 - :yawn: I know Niko loves it - but to me it's almost as dull as the Norwegian entry.
Italy 66 - :doh: I didn't like his other 2 songs much - but this is just horrible and painful
Luxembourg 70 - :ack: He just cannot sing - painful to listen to
Turkey 83 - :ack: amongst the 5 worst songs ever heard at ESC
Austria 88 - what the heck was that all about? - he looked totally uncomfortable singing it as well
UK 03 - horrendously out of tune singing a poor song - why were we so surprised? :shrug:
Switzerland 04 (S-F) - such an ironic name really (Music Stars) because they were simply awful

The most unfair 0 points

Netherlands 62 - lovely catchy song OK performance
Germany 64 - Completely mystified as to how this ended with 0...and even more mystified as to how....
Germany 65 - ...this little gem did too.  I can find no explanation at all.
Turkey 87 - OK so it was a little fast and frantic - but 0 points was harsh
Iceland 89 - yes he looked like a rabbit caught in the headlights - but the song was decent enough
Portugal 97 - only one thing to say - Why? absolutely no rational explanation as to why this got 0
Switzerland 98 - same goes for this one.

The rest I can take or leave :)

we agreed a lot here IJM, except for Sweden 63 which I like oh and Luxembourg 70 is quite nice too.
I love Germany 1964 and I can't get its 0... but the voting back then was tough, if you were outside everyone's top 3 you had 0.. I mean Spain and Belgium and Yugoslavia 64 were all great too, better than the UK, Austria, Luxembourg, or even Italy for that matter! and I love love love love love turkey 87!

During the performance from The Netherlands in 1962 there was a technical mistake: the lights went off, so the artists had to sing in the dark a big part of the performance.



I cannot say whether this mistake has influenced the score, but I wonder how many points The Netherlands would have had without the lights falling out.

By the way, I agree with most of your lists, Martial and ijm123. I like Turkey '87 very much and the Icelandic song in 1989 isn't bad. But there is one thing: I think that the Spanish entry in 1983 is very awful. Quien maneja mi barca which means "Who Sails My Boat" is a funny title, but in my opinion the singer sings false and the performance is not good. I like other Spanish entries a lot more (Azucar Moreno in 1990 and Anabel Conde in 1995).

well 1962 was the year with the biggest 0pt for the voting was really tough, only the top 3 could get pts and there were definitely two sides : one of good songs and one of poorer songs. I don't think the juries considered them ALL as deserving the last spot and 0pt, but it turned out that way. Mostly France's fault, having gained the top 3pts from most juries and ending with TWICE as much pts as the runner-up, which will only happen in 64 and 67 again..

Spain 83 is probably the most spanish esc entry ever. She doesn't sing false for it is the way it is supposed to be sung, and the performance was very flavored, I really love it!

I also don't like Spain 83 - but because of the style of the song it has to be sung that way.  It's the style of the song I don't like.
