Read ´ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Ì Tim Moore Read & Download Nul Points ô PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Irteen Eurominstrels who have come and gone without troubling the scorers since Norway's Jahn Teigen twanged his silver braces and leapt splay legged off the Palais des Congres stage in 1978 From Lisbon to Lithuania from the Black Sea to the Baltic Moore travels the continent to hear their extraordinary stories 'poignant ludicrous and heartwarming in almost eual measure' recounting as he does so the no less improbable history of Eurovision itself a towering cathedral of cheese that can nonetheless claim responsibility for keeping Norway out of the EU and catalysing the overthrow of a Portuguese dictatorsh. For anyone interested in Eurovision this is a damned good read and it also has some intriguing and entertaining insights into concepts such as failure embarrassment and how people both strive to be better than they perhaps really are and what happens when reality smacks them down This isn t a travel book in the conventional sense but like a mapping of one of the least appealing aspects of one of the most kitschy pop culture phenomenons in the world It s best when it looks at the nul points efforts of Scandinavians Jahn Teigen Finn Kalvak and Kojo and the British act Jemini Perhaps the Anglo Nordic appreciation of failure as an achievement within itself is why these acts and their respective treatments by Moore are the most enjoyable Overall this is well worth the effort for anyone in general but a must have for the Eurovision addict

Summary Nul Points

Read ´ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Ì Tim Moore Read & Download Nul Points ô PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Fifty years after Jetty Paerl took to the Lugano stage and burst into 'The Birds of Holland' the Eurovision Song Contest is still luring 450 million of us to the sofa on that special Saturday night in May But where once we settled down to admire the 'top uality original songwriting' that the contest was inaugurated to showcase throughout the long post ABBA decades Eurovision has come to entertain us for all the wrong reasons we chortle at its magnificent foolishness its stubborn reinforcement of the crudest national stereotypes at a scoreboard shamelessly corrupted by cross border friendship and hatred An. EUROVISION oh how my heart singsupdate I have read about the first two nul pointers so far but have had to pause reading this while I gather all Eurovision entries from 1956 today onto my ipod this is taking a super long time but once it s done I can start in again and appreciate the full glory of the bookThe other thing about the book that s slowing me down is that you really have to watch it with your computer nearby so you can Youtube the disastrous performances Often just listening to the songs themselves doesn t go v far in explaining why they failed so gloriously
