1962: Marking the birth of nul points

1962: Marking the birth of nul points

1962 – The year when “nul points” appears on the scoreboard for the first time! What took them so long? Nevertheless, four whole countries all score a big fat zero this year, establishing a cult “achievement” that will entertain ESC fans – and the public – for decades to come. One of them is Fud Leclerc, the Valentina Monetta of his day. He finally takes the hint and disappears from the ESC stage after this, his fourth participation. At the right end of the scoreboard, France is the winner for the third time in just seven editions of the contest to date.

The team’s top 3

Germany: Conny Froboess – Zwei Kleine Italiener

Felix: Probably the only song in ESC 1962 that is still somewhat compatible with current listening habits. Also a total evergreen in Germany, as probably everyone above the age of 40 knows it. One might easily mistake the lyrics for naive and romantic, however the subject of the song does have some socio-critical tendencies. Also interesting to see how the pronunciation of German has partially but notably shifted in the last half a century.

Yugoslavia: Lola Novaković – Ne pali svetla u sumrak

Martin: This surely won’t be the last time I select a Yugoslav song in one of these posts, but their 1962 entry tends to be largely forgotten among fans, and I think that’s a shame. The music and Lola’s smoky voice really conjure up the twilight scene described in the lyrics, just two lovers and the dwindling light of their cigarettes. I even like the live orchestration, which is brimming with nice touches without ever being drowned by them. Some of the juries clearly had a soft spot for the song too, as it managed to share fourth place in the voting.

France: Isabelle Aubret – Un premier amour

Shi: It doesn’t get less original than having a contest winner as your favorite, but in my defense, when I first heard all the songs of 1962 this one was the only song I liked instantly without having realized it was the eventual winner. Subsequent repeat listening and viewing of that year have added the exact two picks of Martin and Felix to my list of favorites, but this one – which to this day sounds to me like it was plucked right out of a movie – will always be my first love of 1962.

Meditate against PED in 7 steps! Here’s your new morning routine.

Meditate against PED in 7 steps! Here’s your new morning routine.

all images: EBU / Eurovision Song Contest

The Eurovision Song Contest is over. The Barbara Dex Award is over.
Post Eurovision Depression (PED) strikes again.

 

We say:


It’s that time of the year, yes. But we say: Don’t give in! Don’t give PED a chance!

This is why our trusted experts, a group of recognised gurus and psychologists, have developed a morning routine that we want to share with you! You can do the exercises anywhere and everywhere.

Important: In order to develop the best resistance against PED, you must complete every step of this routine, every morning, right after you get up. In the correct order. This is serious, after all!

Before you begin, open the window, create a comfortable atmosphere, drink a glass of water or whatever floats your boat.

Ready? Here we go!

 

Step 1: Get into the right position

Our Anti PED Meditation is a holistic experience for body and mind. Before your mind can focus on the demanding task of getting rid of Post Eurovision Depression, you need to put your body into the correct position.

This is the only correct posture which you must maintain all the way through Steps 1 to 5. Click “play” to view it, then do it yourself!

 

Step 2: Face the shadow

Now that you are “sitting” like this, it’s time to use your fantasy. Imagine PED in front of you, in the shape of a dark and evil shadow. Face it. Don’t deny you have it. It’s right there in front of you. PED is in your genes – but you can cast it out of your system every year, in dark times like these. But time is ticking, and you HAVE TO DO THESE EXERCISES every day. Don’t deny.

 

Step 3: Perform the inner look

This is an exercise that complements Step 2. Remember that you can’t get up on your feet again, or get into any other body position that might be the tiniest bit comfortable. Now, let’s face it: the shadow of PED isn’t only outside and in front of you, it’s right there in your body too. In your bones, in your veins, in your meridians. Face the shadow inside of you. Look within. Before you can cast out all the negative PED energy, you must irradiate peace, light and harmony!

Watching this song in full will show you how.

 

Step 4: Breathing exercise

Completed Step 3? Good. Still in the only correct position? Very good. Now you need to make sure you are breathing correctly. Just as Portugal’s Adelaide showed you how to “sit” properly, this fellow from Finland will teach you how to breathe:

 

Step 5: The mantra

Now that you are sitting properly, breathing properly and have activated your holistic spirit, it’s time for the mantra. This will finally loosen the most resistant PED energies in your system so that you can send them out of your body and into the universe.

Repeat this mantra 7 times forwards and backwards:

Tong-ki tong ri-ki kong-kong-tong
Ti-ki kong-kong-kong ti-ki kong-kong
Ri kong-kong ti-ki kong-kong-kong
Ti-ki kong-kong-kong

Step 6: Expel the PED energy

NOW you can finally stop “sitting” on the floor like WTF. This means you’re done with looking like this. With all your consciousness, focus on this step, because it’s the most demanding one.

LIFT YOUR BODY FROM POSITION 1…

INTO POSITION 2…

AND MOVE YOUR BODY LIKE THIS FOR 12 MINUTES
in order to cast all the bad PED energy out into the universe:

 

Step 7: Reaffirmation

Now that PED is finally out of your system, you need to protect yourself from the danger that it will return.

First, ask yourself this question, out loud, three times:

“Do I have PED?”

…and then, as the ultimate and final step against PED, repeat loudly and clearly what this wise woman says:


And you’re done! At least for today! Remember you need to do this morning routine all the way throughout the next months to keep PED away from your door.

But there’s a silver lining: you can stop this daily meditation as soon as the intro theme of Festivali i Këngës comes through your speakers!
