Eurovision Song Reviews: 1981 (Part One)
#eurovision #esc1981 #op #long post
Ricky: So, this winner is notable too, but not for the reasons that the last was. This time, the act is memorable. We don’t get to talk about the act in this half, however, I will say this. I don’t remember much from 1981, and most of what people remember is the winner. Cyprus debuted this year, however that act is in the second half too.
Ajit: 1980 was the last year in which the host wasn’t the previous year’s winning country. Meaning that, from now on, the host will always be last year’s winning country. Coincidentally we had the Netherlands hosting despite not being the sole winner of the previous contest, Ireland winning, and Katja Ebstein participating (similarly to 1970). This year we return to having 20 participants, with the return of Yugoslavia and Israel, the withdrawal of Morocco and Italy, and the debut of Cyprus. Did I mention that it’s the 25th Eurovision Song Contest?
Marty Brem – Wenn du da bist (Austria)
Ricky: So this commentator is finding it acceptable to talk over the music. It’s very quiet, that being said. This song is staged rather randomly, and it seems that the dancing is prioritised when we’re talking about how the camera works, and it works slightly as a distraction from the song, which in itself isn’t that bad.
Ajit: I think this is the first time since 1966 that there are non-musical performers, since three of the ladies don’t appear to be contributing to the song. The choreography was a bit creepy and surreal. What was that backing singer wearing? The song itself is decent, and if I’m not mistaken it’s the second time in a row that this guy was in the opening entry (he also sang for Austria the year before). Did it stand out? It did.
Modern Folk Trio and Ayşegül – Dönme Dolap (Turkey)
Ricky: So… not good? I think car-crashy, is the word. If that is even a word… Everybody seems happy to be up on the stage with their mediocre song and I really don’t know. Of course, it’s so terribly 1970s that I don’t know how else to describe it.
Ajit: I’d call this a guilty pleasure. It seems unappealing but it actually does appeal. Choreography was simple but organized. Overall nice, but it’s not a surprise that they didn’t do well.
Lena Valaitis – Johnny Blue (Germany)
Ricky: Ralph!!!!!!! So, this song doesn’t sound great but will probably get in the Top 5 because it’s a Ralph song. Of course, 1980s Siegel is slightly similar to his attempts now-a-days. I’m thinking about Maybe the most, with parts of Crisalide. Anyway the German here is totally making this song sound no different, and I wouldn’t be paying attention to the lyrics of this song that well.
Ajit: Well done! An emotional song that has managed to touch the hearts of the viewers. I just think, if that harmonica player was supposed to be this “Johnny Blue”, shouldn’t he have been playing the guitar instead?
Jean-Claude Pascal – C’est peut-être pas l’Amérique (Luxembourg)
Ricky: A wild previous winner appears… and we know that can only go one of two ways. Either another win or d-d-d-d-d-down. This isn’t one of the other win entries, I’m (not) sorry to say. This is boring, and unlistenable. Also, the backing singers look rather diverse in this song, a good thing.
Ajit: RTL seems to try something completely different every year. I guess 20 years is currently the longest time for a Eurovision comeback? He’s singing how America isn’t everything (something that I’d still consider relevant even now), however the song itself didn’t really stand out. I guess the European juries just managed to relate to the song.
Hakol Over Habibi – Halayla (Israel)
Ricky: So I don’t know what kind of genre this song is meant to be, it dances around four or five of them, being honest. Also, if I was to try to figure out this song, I feel that it would take away from the fun of the song (and this song is rather fun). I think that this has to get high on the scoreboard.
Ajit: My favourite of the night! Israel’s return after their one year hiatus brings their worst-placed entry between 1978 and 1983, but regardless, I’m quite fond of it. The choreography was okay, but still, well done!
Tommy Seebach and Debbie Cameron – Krøller eller ej (Denmark)
Ricky: So disco is a popular choice I guess. This song, however, falls apart when the singers sing their first words. At least they’re having fun up there and possibly not feeling too bad with their song. The verses aren’t giving me a good enough vibe for me to enjoy the chorus too. Nothing amazing, I will definitely say.
Ajit: Were they actually singing about themselves? Those were the exact same 4 people from 1979, with the addition of two dancers (were they necessary? I think not). The guy would apparently become an alcoholic somewhere between this and his final Eurovision return. What I like about this entry is the lyrics, it talks about equality… at least in raising children.
Seid Memić “Vajta” – Lejla (Yugoslavia)
Ricky: It sounds messy to begin with. The vocals sound rather raspy, and grating when placed against the instrumental portions of the song. Also, the chorus changing the song doesn’t manage to help it much, but it only makes me wonder why they would do something like that, and also makes me wonder who thought this song was a good idea from the Slavic perspective.
Ajit: This is Yugoslavia’s first entry after their break, and after the death of their beloved dictator. The song was performed different to how the studio version went, and while the orchestration is unique, I won’t necessarily say it’s better. This is the Bosnian Lejla that I’m more familiar with, rather than the one from 2006.
Riki Sorsa – Reggae OK (Finland)
Ricky: I can’t with this song… honestly, it’s so strange that I’m unable to place it despite the fact that I know what genre they’re aiming for. Finnish probably isn’t a good language for the song overall, and I could have seen an English version doing better for some reason. Are you really going with reggae? O K!
Ajit: Well… it stood out. I guess Reggae is okay (no pun intended) but there were lots of improvements they could’ve done. Finnish Reggae, by now you can’t say you haven’t listened to it.
Jean Gabilou – Humanahum (France)
Ricky: It’s okay. He seems to be putting his all into, however I’m not getting much of the passion from my front row seats, Jean. I get that you’re trying to sing a passionate song and all, but I’m just not personally sure how much you believe in the song. This song should be connecting despite the language gap but I’m not feeling anything.
Ajit: I just read the lyrics and… whoa. Apparently this was a peace song. I did not see that coming at all. The song itself is okay actually, I like how it keeps building up, and the repetition was a good one. The performance… it wasn’t particularly an amazing one but it isn’t too bad either, I guess. The lyrics though, I recommend you guys read it (here).
Bacchelli – Y sólo tú (Spain)
Ricky: To me, this feels unique. I don’t know where it sits, but it doesn’t sit in just one place. It sits in a better box than other entries so far, but for me it’s not so much unique that it would entirely win based on that. I don’t think it would do bad but it wouldn’t do great.
Ajit: This is one of those songs that I do like, but I just can’t get myself enough to enjoy it. Thus it lies just outside of my favourites. The song fits as some sort of summer song, the performance is decent…. yeah, that’s all.
Ricky: No winners yet, but we should know that the winner and most memorable act is to come next time. However, there have been all right entries.
Ajit: We’ll see the rest on Saturday. My recording of the show is from ORF (Austria) but commentary is, quite suspiciously, in English…
