In those days the voting was decided purely by Juries only (no public vote). It was a hit because its a great song and it won the competition. In the 70s and early 80s virtually all the winners made it to no. 1 in the uk charts (Milk and Honey, Nicole, Izhar Cohen, Johnny Logan)

I became a teenager and good old Katie Boyle hosted the UK show.

You are just a year younger than me then, Paul. The best time ever to be young, I think.

Robbie, thank you for reminding me about the jury-only-voting. I must have been having a daft moment because I was quite puzzled.
