    Munich 1983 - Post your top 20

    It was tough for me to decide the winner for this year. I guess because there was no song that I truly enjoyed...if anything, the best ones are "growers", with luck. Still I went with Carola's entry mainly because it's the one with the most coherent lyrics. Also because ever since I started these kind of threads it's sort of been a rule of thumb not to elect an actual winner as #1, for the sake of variety. And last but not least, because I finally wanted to "reward" Carola at last, she was a very expressive performer in her early years. Full of life and transmitting positive vibes. Just wish I had heard something more "serious" from her in ESC. Since I do prefer that kind of music and obviously Corinne's entry should have been my winner instead by this standard. But the lyrics are a bit mediocre in the beginning, and I couldn't help but feel that she sort of overdid the song in terms of vocal performance. Which kind of turns me off. But she was a deserved winner in the actual contest.

    Great year!

    I fully agree with the winner, and Spain did deserve nil points!
    Actually the top 4 was well deserved, especially that bouncy Yugoslavian track landing them a good result after so long

    01. Luxembourg - Corinne Hermès - "Si la vie est cadeau" *
    02. Yugoslavia - Daniel - "Džuli"
    03. Israel - Ofra Haza - "Hi" (חי)
    04. Sweden - Carola Häggvist - "Främling"
    05. Italy - Riccardo Fogli - "Per Lucia"
    06. Germany - Hoffmann & Hoffmann - "Rücksicht"
    07. Finland - Ami Aspelund - "Fantasiaa"
    08. Portugal - Armando Gama - "Esta balada que te dou"
    09. Cyprus - Stavros & Constantina - "I Agapi Akoma Zi" (Η αγάπη ακόμα ζει)
    10. Switzerland - Mariella Farré - "Io cosí non ci sto"
    11. United Kingdom - Sweet Dreams - "I'm never giving up"
    12. Austria - Westend - "Hurricane"
    13. Greece - Kristi Stassinopoulou - "Mou Les" (Μου λες)
    14. France - Guy Bonnet - "Vivre"
    15. Denmark - Gry Johansen - "Kloden drejer"
    16. Norway - Jahn Teigen - "Do re mi"
    17. The Netherlands - Bernadette - "Sing me a song"
    18. Belgium - Pas de deux - "Rendez-vous"
    19. Turkey - Cetin Alp & the Short Waves - "Opera"
    20. Spain - Remedios Amaya - "Quién maneja mi barca"

    Belgium was weird, the Netherlands boring, Denmark was childish and Greece was nice but I can never recall how the song goes!

    My Jewish Studies professor today told me that Chai has since been hijacked by Israeli extreme nationalists, which is incredibly unfortunate.
