The Netherlands 1973

'De oude muzikant' (The old musician) performed by Ben Cramer.
Composer: Pierre Kartner. Lyrics: Pierre Kartner.

In an almost spoken-word introduction, Cramer builds up a lovely sense of mystery. And then the song turns into a strange mix of oompa-band, fairground carousel, and shouty faux-emotion. In short, Cramer overplays his hand with the lyrics, but overplays it so hard he is almost into pastiche territory.

He’s having fun with it, and he just about gets away with it.

The composition is all over the shop as well, but not as much as Cramer.  ’De Oude Muzikant' needs to be played as a high concept song, but it pulls back from that just enough to feel uncomfortable. Which is a shame, because, we need more accordians at the Song Contest.

Points: 69. Placing: 14th.

…and, believe it or not, the composer is also the same guy who wrote Ik Ben Verliefd (Sha-la-lie), Netherlands 2010

Spain 1975

Tú volverás (You’ll return) performed by Sergio y Estíbaliz.
Composer: Juan Carlos Calderón. Lyrics: Juan Carlos Calderón.

Looking to go one step further than the second place in 1973, most of the team behind ‘Eres Tu’ return to the Contest, and the fairytale result is… tenth.

It might be a strong team, but the song on the night has no spark at all. Staging is just the male and lead standing next to each other, and failing to have any interaction of chemistry with each other. Visually it doesn’t work (even if Blanco’s collar matches Améraza’s floor-length offcut from Little House On The Prairie’.

Musically we’re in spanish ballad territory, and it has the equisite rises and falls that remain popular to this day, but Améraza pulls back from really delivering the big notes that could impress the jury.

Maybe they thought it was a dress rehearsal?

Points: 53. Placing: 10th.

Autoimmune Disease Acts Like Demonic Possession
Susannah Cahalan started feeling a bit off. Numbness on one side of the body, losing sleep, crying hysterically one minute and laughing the next. She went to get MRIs but they showed nothing. Things were getting a bit more strange.
Her boyfriend told her how at one point while they were watching a show together she started grinding her teeth, moaning, and biting her tongue until she finally passed out. He took her to the hospital and they found out it was a seizure. Her first of many. Things got worse.
She stopped eating, became paranoid and delusional, had more seizures in which blood would spurt out of her mouth. She was hospitalized (one nurse recalls that in the middle of the night while she was getting blood, Susannah sat up straigh and slapped her). Numerous tests were done and the doctors couldn’t figure out what was wrong.
That is until Dr. Souhel Najjar came into the picture. He asked her to draw a clock. When she showed him what she had drawn he knew exactly what was wrong with her. All the numbers were written on the right side of the clock face, and no numbers were on the left side.
She had anti-NMDAR encephalitis. The receptors in the frontal lobe, responsible for cognitive reasoning, and the limbic system, or the emotional center of the brain, are under assault by the immune system. In other words, her body was attacking her brain. Nearly 90% of people that suffer from this go undiagnosed and it is more common in women.
