  • Eurovision Song Contest 1968


    The Eurovision Song Contest 1968 was the 13th Eurovision Song Contest. The contest was won by the Spanish song La, la, la, performed by Massiel. Originally Spain entered Joan Manuel Serrat to sing La La La, but his demand to sing in Catalan was an affront to Francoist Spain. Serrat was withdrawn and replaced by Massiel, who sang the same song in Spanish.

    Paola del Medico- Bonjour,bonjour
    5th place
    13 points

    Paola ist die Tochter eines Italieners und einer Schweizerin. Mit 14 Jahren hatte sie anlässlich eines Amateurfestivals ihren ersten Bühnenauftritt. Sie machte eine kaufmännische Lehre, nahm jedoch weiterhin an verschiedenen Gesangsfestivals teil.

    1968 erschien mit Für alle Zeiten ihre erste Schallplatte. 1969 nahm Del Medico erstmals am Eurovision Song Contest teil und belegte mit Bonjour, Bonjour für ihr Heimatland in Madrid den fünften Platz. Im gleichen Jahr war sie auch beim Deutschen Schlagerwettbewerb in Wiesbaden mit Stille Wasser, die sind tief vertreten und erreichte den zweiten Platz. Auch bei internationalen Festivals in Karlsbad (1968 Für alle Zeiten) und Rio de Janeiro (1970 Emporte-moi sur ton manège) trat Del Medico auf. Sie war fortan Dauergast in der ZDF-Hitparade und anderen Fernsehsendungen. 1977 versuchte Del Medico ein zweites Mal beim Eurovision Song Contest, scheiterte aber in der Schweizer Vorausscheidung mit dem Titel Le livre blanc, wo sie den zweiten Platz erreichte. Ebenso erging es ihr mit dem Titel Vogel der Nacht, mit dem sie sich um die deutsche Teilnahme 1979 bewarb, aber nur den 3. Platz erreichte. 1980 nahm sie mit dem Titel Cinéma beim Eurovision Song Contest in Den Haag teil und wurde 4.

    Im selben Jahr heiratete Del Medico den Schweizer Fernsehmoderator Kurt Felix, mit dem sie von 1983 bis 1990 die Samstagabendshow Verstehen Sie Spaß? moderierte.

    1982 versuchte sich del Medico auch noch einmal für Deutschland bei der Vorentscheidung zum Eurovision Song Contest. Mit dem Titel Peter Pan kam sie aber hinter Nicole wieder nur auf Platz 2. Dem Wettbewerb blieb sie treu, als sie 1986 die Moderation der Schweizer Vorausscheidung zum Song Contest übernahm.

    Ihre grössten Erfolge hatte Del Medico mit Der Teufel und der junge Mann (1981 fünf Wochen in den Top 10) und der deutsche Version von Blue Bayou im Jahr 1978.

    1990 produzierte Jack White mit Del Medico unter dem Pseudonym Raffaella für Verstehen Sie Spaß? eine Cover-Version des Baccara-Liedes Yes Sir, I Can Boogie.

    Seit 2002 ist Del Medico auch als Modekatalog-Model im mitteleuropäischen Raum tätig.

    Aus Anlass des 70. Geburtstags von Dieter Thomas Heck sang sie am 29. Dezember 2007 im Rahmen der ZDF-Gala Danke Dieter Thomas Heck nach 17 Jahren erstmals wieder öffentlich, nämlich eine für den Jubilar geänderte Version ihres Hits Blue Bayou.

  • Eurovision 1968 Voting Part 2/2


    The second part of the voting for the 1968 Eurovision Song Contest, presented by Katie Boyle in London, UK.

    And just when it looked like Cliff would easily sail to victory, keeping a small but steady lead up to the penultimate vote, out comes Germany and brings everything upside down... And while Yugoslavia could still save the day, they instead put the last nail in the coffin for the UK - quite like they'd do exactly 20 years later - giving Spain their first of two victories at the contest. And I must say, I admire Katie Boyle at this point for keeping up appearances in such a professional manner, especially given the audience's quite evident (and perfectly understandable) frustration.

  • Eurovision Song Contest 1974 - Full Show HQ


    For the second time in three years the United Kingdom staged the Eurovision Song Contest without having won the contest in the preceding year. Due to the fact that the broadcaster in Luxembourg, RTL, did not wish to host the event again for financial reasons, the BBC embraced the possibility once more. The 1974 Eurovision Song Contest was held at The Dome, in the seaside resort of Brighton.

    1974 saw the first participation of Greece who sent their national star Marinella. France was to enter the song contest with the entry La Vie A Vingt-cinq Ans by Dani, but the French singer never got the chance to perform though as the French president, Georges Pompidou, died in the week of the contest and France withdrew.

    The voting system changed once more: 10 jury members in every country each awarded one point to their favourite song. For the first time, a draw of lots was used to decide the order in which countries would give the results of their juries. However, it was the last time this method was used to cast the votes - from 1975 onwards, a new voting system would be implemented where the order of the jury votes followed the order of performance.

    Sweden won the song contest for the first time with the entry Waterloo, performed by ABBA. The song became a huge international hit and was the starting point of their legendary international career.

  • Eurovision 1971 - United Kingdom


    Clodagh Rodgers performing Jack in the Box, the UK entry at the 1971 Eurovision Song Contest.

    Four years after Puppet on a String, the British sent another cheery song whose title refers to a toy, and they were duly rewarded with yet another top-5 placing. This may not be such a classic as the Sandie Shaw number, but it;s still a cute and uplifting song - not to mention that Clodagh's hotpants must have caused quite a stir at the time!

    Peter, Sue & Mark performing Les Illusions de nos Vingt Ans (freely translated as The Aspirations of Our Youth - special thanks to ESCsince1968 for helping with the translation), the Swiss entry at the 1971 Eurovision Song Contest.

    In the first of their four appearances at the contest (each one in a different language!), PSM entered with a song talking about the generation gap (which, this being the late 60s-early 70s, was a very timely issue) and taking a stance for the younger generations. All in all, a perfectly decent, but a bit forgettable tune, IMO - and its 12th place reflected that - although the famous Swiss trio would fare much better in their subsequent entries.

    Kirsti Sparboe -
    Oj, Oj, Oj, Så Glad Jeg Skal Bli
    16th place
    1 point

    Her first participation in the Eurovision Song Contest was in 1965, when she was 19 years old, with the song Karusell, which came in 13th place. She then participated in the 1966 Norwegian Pre-Selection for The Eurovision Song Contest, with the song Gi Meg Fri, which came in 2nd. Her next Eurovision participation would be in 1967, with the song Dukkemann, Which came in 14th place.

    She also participated in the 1968 Norwegian Pre-Selection, and would have gone on to represent Norway in 1968, but the song she performed (Jag har aldri vært så glad i no'en som deg) was disqualified after accusations of plagiarising a popular Cliff Richard song called Summer Holiday. She also covered the winning song of that year, La La La in Norwegian.

    She represented Norway once more in 1969 with the song Oj, oj, oj, så glad jeg skal bli in 1969, which finished in last place. This song was recorded in 3 languages (Norwegian, Swedish, and French) and a Grand Jubilee version entitled Oj Oj Oj, Grand Prix Jubilee, released years later.

    Kirsti participated in the 1970 German Pre-selection for the Eurovision Song Contest, after Norway, Finland, Portugal and Sweden refused to participate for that particular year. She sang Pierre Der Clochard, and ended up in 4th place. Kirsti also covered 1971's winning song Un Banc, Un Arbre Une Rue in Norwegian.

    Since the Eurovision Song Contest, she has released singles mostly in Germany, where she found moderate success. Kirsti also showed off her acting talents for a one off BBC TV Show called Jon, Brian, Kirsti And Jon in 1980.
