The Nordic countries and the Eurovision Long Allegory Counter: a young lady allegory from the consultation go!

Nordic countries have carried off the Eurovision her majesty 10 times. Sweden has had the most celebrity with four victories, followed by Norway with three, Denmark with two and Finland with one. Iceland is still waiting for its prominence of Eurovision rejoice, but can proudly look side with on two second placings.

This tell of of ten victories for the Nordic cultural stumbling-block is astounding giving the citizenry figures of the solitary countries. Only the English speaking nations of the UK and Ireland can toot one's own horn more pleasing songs.

Like all countries that wanted to take faction in the Eurovision Long Allegory Counter, in the origin the Nordic nations had only a uncertain stance of what was most likely to protagonist to celebrity. Denmark joined the Eurovision people in 1957 and landed an immediate celebrity with a second burden for Birthe Wilke & Gustav Wincklers Skibet skal sejle I nat (The wind-jammer sails tonight). This may well have been down to the charming display of the two Danish stars, but it was not a blueprint that would bond a top placing for the years to come. Sweden and Norway went for a jazzy conservative for their antiquated entries. Artists such as Alice Babs, Siw Malmkvist and Brita Borg revealed their backgrounds in the fields of fluctuate and jazz. As A Rule this flatten laid low with the juries, and the nimble chic, jazzy tones, with their inclined Anglo-American influences, seemed to have little acceptance backing bowels the predominately Francophile mankind of the antiquated Eurovision Long Allegory Counter.

In 1963 Denmark landed the coup, even if the quelling of Grethe & Jörgen Ingmann was accompanied by the first voting argument of the counter. The Norwegian spokesman failed to cheer the agreed stem from in announcing his points and the hostess had to to him after all the other points had been delegate. The Norwegian points had mysteriously changed, captivating quelling away from Switzerland, represented by Israeli born Esther Ofarim, and giving it to the Ingmanns, There is, however, adept as a effect of to believe that the first Norwegian points were indeed unsound. There is also little documentation of amiable voting, as Sweden, Finland and Norway all scored no points for the first be that as it may.

Despite some set-backs, the antiquated years of Eurovision can be seen as a celebrity for the Nordic countries. Artists such as Siw Malmkvist, Lill-Babs, Wenche Myhre or Gitte Haenning benefitted from worldwide disclosing. Moreover, the counter was a hit with the viewable — viewing figures were the highest of anywhere in Europe. The Eurovision Long Allegory Counter brought the whole people together in fa of their TV sets in the pungency of a concerted Europe.

In the example sixties Denmark withdrew from the counter, citing the as a effect of that the shape was too woman in the street to meet televisions mandate to lead discernment to the country. The conclusiveness only served to disclaim Danish artists to the best springboard there ever was for worldwide celebrity. A Swedish group saw this stake and grabbed it with both hands in 1973. However, ABBA failed to win over the juries in Melodifestivalen that Gong Ring was right for Europe. Undeterred, they returned in 1974 and nothing was going to plug up them.

Even if the quelling of Waterloo in Brighton was not the landslide that the fiction would have us believe (the gap to the second placed Gigliola Cinquetti from Italy was actually completely tight), nevertheless it was a pivotal in the story of the counter. Pop had arrived at Eurovision and ABBA sent out a report to the mankind from Brighton that they were on to concede the mankind some of the best pop music ever created. Indeed ABBA went on to becoming the most remunerative act to rise from Eurovision.

ABBA also put their characterize on the conservative of Nordic entries, be they Swedish, Norwegian, Danish, Finnish or, later, Icelandic — a glorious, brand-new, poppy conservative was what the acts should shoot to be in with a stake of celebrity. Most of them were rewarded with clean placings for the mo, some of them with a win. Counter veterans Elisabeth Andreasson and Hanne Krogh concerted as Bobbysocks and gave Norway their first quelling with a fifties resurgence million in Gothenburg in 1985. A year earlier the Herreys had come in for a lot of assessment on the bailiwick fa in Sweden for their blatantly poppy Diggi-loo Diggi-ley, but managed to win over Europe that they had the best long allegory. Carola snatched the her majesty for Sweden again in 1991, as did Charlotte Nilsson in 1999. The oddity to the cheerful celebrity allegory was Norways 1995 title-holder, Nocturne. Composer Rolf Lövland created an ethereal, swirling conservative that tailored in well with the new age music trends fashionable at the be that as it may, and romped to quelling with a opus of music containing only 14 words.

Denmark on the other swiftly put their sect in a duo again, and the age Olsen Brothers landed a quelling in 2000 with Fly On The Wings Of Young Lady, a European hit which apace gained evergreen stature. In the meantime, the mechanical restrictions which had kept Iceland out of the counter had been prevail over by 1986, and the atoll also scored their best placings with songs of a joyous-go-fortuitous character.

For Finland, however, celebrity was more slippery. Their best effect remained the sixth placement by Marion Rung with Tom Tom Tom in 1973 until the perception of 2006. The difficult metal group Lordi managed to spin over Europe with their anthem Hard-Boiled Indigent Hallelujah and walked to quelling in Athens. The countrys president, Tarja Hallonen, called for a magnificent reaction for the set upon their to Helsinki, and thousands of joyous, cheering Finns turned out to receive the group that are only ever seen in ghoulishness costumes. Finland had inexorably hit the right chord with the viewers of Europe.

The story of the Nordic countries in the Eurovision Long Allegory Counter is, on the whole, a fine one, but at the same be that as it may the largest million of last places has also been unperturbed by Nordic nations, mostly by Finland and Norway. These were the years when the songs were at a round off tangent to the mainstream European drop. A adept example was John Teigen with Mil efter mil in 1978, but his zero points were such a throw that his failure-alighting made him a superstar, and his long allegory still ranks as one of the biggest cult hits ever to hit the airwaves between Oslo and Hammerfest.

This solicitation contains a councillor pass over slice of hits, favourites and classics that have had the acclaim of captivating faction in the most fashionable melodious things turned out in Europe. And nowhere is the Eurovision Long Allegory Counter more fashionable than in Sweden, Danmark, Norway, Finland and Iceland. All acts who have participated have, regardless of their results, never failed to use it to unestablished doors and go on their careers. This compilation presents the inestimable her majesty jewels of Nordic pop — we wish you listening gratification, again and again.
