all time rank: the position that the country and the song have between all the eurovision songs
chart from the game vote for the best eurovision song.
The Eurovision Song Contest 1975 was the 20th edition of the contest hosted by SR and held in Stockholm, Sweden. The arena for the event was the newly built Stockholm International Fairs in Älvsjö in southern Stockholm.another voting system was implemented which is still in use today. Juries in every country would give 1 – 12 points to their 10 favourite songs, starting with 12 points to their top favourite, then 10 to the second favourite, 8 to their third favourite, 7 to their fourth favorite and ending with 1 point for their tenth favourite. The votes were cast in the order the songs were performed.A record of 19 participating countries took part in the 1975 Eurovision Song Contest.
The Contest was won by Teach-In, who sang “Ding-A-Dong” in English, representing the Netherlands.The first entry of the night was the one of the Netherlands. The Dutch performers gave a magnificent perfomance and ended up with the trophy singing Ding-A-Dong. It was the fourth time that the Netherlands won the event.After its debut in the preceding year, Greece withdrew from the contest again. On the other hand, Turkey sent its first entry to the song contest and France and Malta returned.The Portuguese entry “Madrugada” was an unabashed celebration of the Carnation Revolution, during which the country’s 1974 Eurovision entry had played a pivotal practical role. According to author and historian John Kennedy O’Connor in his book The Eurovision Song Contest – The Official History, the Portuguese performer had to be dissuaded from wearing his Portuguese army uniform and carrying a gun onto the stage.Ellen Nikolaysen from Norway performed for the third consecutive year on the Eurovision Song Contest stage which was only preceded in the 1950s by Lys Assia and Corry Brokken and in the 1960s by Udo Jürgens, but was never repeated afterwards.
The Swedish left movement protested against the contest and its commercial aspect. At first the criticism was directed towards SR for the huge amount of money they spent on the contest but soon the protests developed into a movement against commercial music overall. . In the autumn of 1975 SR informed that Sweden would not participate in the 1976 edition of the Eurovision Song Contest due to the high costs that came with hosting the show. The rules later changed so that the costs were split more equally between the participating broadcasters.
