Eurovision 1982: The `pop` bit

In my earlier post I wrote about the quality ballads that were entered and indeed one of them won the top prize. Not to be missed are the pop tunes that were entered including the distinct dance routine of the UK entry from Bardo (of which there isn’t a truncated `youtube`) so the action starts at 1:30; there’s also the delightfully early 80s Danish entry and the Israeli entry that started their trend of entering a distinct type of `anthemic pop` that would keep them high up the rankings for years to come. bardo82

Last but definitely least was the Finnish entry that was a plea for nuclear disarmament. This stood out as a song that simply stood out and received the famous `nul points`. It’s fascinatingly ghastly in all respects.
