Eurovision of yesterday

It's that time of year again. But it's not what it was.

Here are a couple of songs from my childhood that came out tops in the contest.

A winner from 1982, I remember singing this on stage at school:

A Little Peace - Nicole

Just like a flower when winter begins
Just like a candle blown out in the wind
Just like a bird that can no longer fly
I'm feeling that way some times

But then as I'm falling, weighed down by the load
I picture a light at the end of the road
And closing my eyes I can see through the dark
The dream that is in my heart

A little lovin', a little givin'
To build a dream for the world we live in
A little patience and understandin'
For our tomorrow, a little peace
A little sunshine, a sea of gladness
To wash away all the tears of sadness
A little hopin', a little prayin,
For our tomorrow, a little peace

I feel I'm a leaf in the mound on the snow
I fell to the ground, there was no-one below
So now I am helpless alone with my song
Just wishing the storm was done

A little lovin', a little givin'
To build a dream for the world we live in
A little patience and understandin'
For our tomorrow, a little peace
A little sunshine, a sea of gladness
To wash away all the tears of sadness
A little hopin', a little prayin,
For our tomorrow, a little peace

We are feathers on the breeze
Sing with me my song of peace
We are feathers on the breeze
Sing with me my song of peace



I was only four years old but somehow I remember singing this with my mam.



Save your Kisses for me - Brotherhood of Man

Though it hurts to go away
It's impossible to stay
But there's one thing I must say
Before I go
I love you (I love you) you know
I'll be thinking of you
In most everything I do

Now the time is moving on
And I really should be gone
But you keep me hanging on
For one more smile

I love you (I love you) all the while
With your cute little ways
Will you promise that you'll save
Your kisses for me

Save all your kisses for me
Bye bye baby bye bye
Don't cry honey don't cry
Gonna walk out the door
But I'll soon be back for more

Kisses for me
Save all your kisses for me
So long honey so long
Hang on baby hang on

Don't you dare me to stay
Coz you know I'll have to say
That I've got to work each day
And that's why I go away
But I count the seconds
Till I'm home with you

I love you (I love you) it's true
You're so cute honey gee
Won't you save them up for me
Your kisses for me

Save all your kisses for me
Bye bye baby bye bye
Don't cry honey don't cry
Gonna walk out the door
But I'll soon be back for more
Kisses for me

Save all your kisses for me
So long honey so long
Hang on baby hang on

Don't you dare me to stay
Coz you know you've got to save
Your kisses for me
Save all your kisses for me

Bye bye baby bye bye
Don't cry honey don't cry
Won't you save them for me
Even though you're only three

I remember perfectly the song "Save your kisses for me". At that time I'm a fans of Eurovision, nowadays it's only politics.

Montse,

There used to be a time when a Eurovision winner would be a hit. Those days are gone.


At that time I WAS A FAN of Eurovision, nowadays it's only ABOUT politics.
