Cheesy Songs, Feathered Hair & Snazzy Outfits: A 70s-80s Eurovision Mixtape

Papa Pingouin Sophie and Magaly


I certainly don’t want to knock Eurovision contestants from the late 1970s to early 80s – but they were certainly of their time.  Full of cringeworthy fashion, poor choreography and the peppiest songs ever concocted by man – you just can’t help but fall under their cheesy spell.  So, prepare to be hypnotized by the feathered hair, the shiny outfits, and the constant smiling.   When you awake, it will all seem like a bad pastel-colored dream.
