I came across the idea when I watched the vid of UK's Scooch or Moldova this year... what was a really crazy or weird ESC song?

Would be great if you could post a youtube (or similar) vid!

Let's begin with Germany 1998 - Guildo Horn, a crazy guy! Strange but funny. I hated it back then though. The song was written by Stefan Raab, by the way.

I think Le Papa Pingouin is a touch miscast as a comedy entry. It's actually quite a sweet children's song about a sad penguin who wishes he could fly. I like it.

Minn Hinsti Dans is an interesting one. It would have instantly made this list in 1997. At the time, the performance seemed shockingly pornographic. I'm sure that's why the UK gave it so many points. Nowadays, it's just an amazing Eurovision classic.

What's so funny/crazy/strange about that? I guess, there is the risque subject matter, but most casual British fans consider that to be our best ever entry and love it in a totally non-ironic way.

One thing I have noticed just now, is the computer screens. They're not switched on. There are no wires either.

Since all I've done so far is complain about the picks of others I'll add one of my own. It seems ridiculous to me that we've got two songs from 1983 and haven't included Opera.

The stangest... yet one of the most fundamental and therefore one of the songs most neglected in ESC... would have been Belgium 2008. The song didn't get support from its' own country, nor the ESC participant... nevertheless... when only airing the first 10 notes today everyone recognizes... THAT'S a hit!

My vote goes to "O Julissi (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ML0oUhINr-E)" of ishtar

Yuck, the premise of that song is retarded. The performance is not bad, but honestly, a song about an Elvis-copycat? ... In the 2000's, there's no question that VRT's entries ("1 Life", "Je t'adore", "O Julissi", "Me & My Guitar") were much better than RTBF entries (Witloof Bay??? Ugh!). "Sanomi" was an exception.

"With Love Baby" is probably the 2nd best of the French-language broadcaster this millenium, though 2009 is also great. :lol: Well, IMO, "Me & My Guitar" is the worst of the Dutch-speaking broadcaster...

Belgium truly chose the wrong song with "O Julissi". That year you had "Magical Sensation" by Katy Satyn, who would've easily had a top 15 placing. :/

Strange song, considering it was 1980, Luxembourg
I wouldn't say Luxembourg's 1980 entry "Papa Pingouin" was strange. In my opinion, it was a good song, and quite a catchy one at that. In fact it's one of the better songs of that 1980 ESC.

I would say that the weirdest song in the 1980 ESC, and perhaps all time, has to be Norway's 1980 entry "Sámiid Ćdnan" sung by Sverre Kjellsberg and Mattis Hćtta.


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ap3_USxKQ34

It began with one man singing. About half way through he suddenly stopped and the man dressed in red and blue walked in and started yodelling. A little later they both started yodelling together. To me the yodelling sounded something like "Hey oh lord oh lord oh eh" etc. Not much sense really. 16th place out of 19 songs, and 15 points was as much as it deserved.

Here are the words of "Sámiid Ćdnan" http://diggiloo.net/?1980no - but it only has the words of the singing part at the beginning. The yodelling bit isn't there.
