I know right … Nick of this parish has been telling me off for “not putting anything British in the vault – people will think that you are biased or sommat”
Not wanting to be accused of bias (!) he suggested something hideous and, frankly, there was only one choice.
1980 was a year of a great Song for Europe. A tie, the wrong song winning IMHO, Pussyfoot … a great voting sequence, all good things but something has to come last, and damn are we good at that too. The Main Event contained a Eurovision entrant from 1978, Rita Stroud (known to all as Cheryl Baker), so what could possibly go wrong.
