Dollie de Luxe were a Norwegian pop duo consisting of Benedicte Adrian(lead vocal) and Ingrid Bjørnov(keyboard and vocal). Their debut album Første Akt came in 1980. They participated in the 1984 Eurovision Song Contest 1984 with the song “Lenge leve livet”. The duo was formed in 1980 and called Dollie, but from 1984 they were called Dollie de Luxe. This probably had to do because they were taking part in Eurovision in Luxembourg. In 1985 they scored a Top 20 hit in France with their single QUEEN OF THE NIGHT/SATISFACTION.

Lecia and Lucienne were a Danish duo consisting of two sisters Lecia who was born in 1948 and Lucienne Jønsson who was born in 1951. They started at amature competitions in 1961.In the space of just over two years they had won something like 43 competitions. They participated in the Danish Melodi Grand Prix in both 1979 and 1980. Their song in 1980 was BYE-BYE composed by Tommy Seebach and Keld Heick. After they split up, Lecia continued a musical career with the duo Laban.
Brunner & Brunner are Austrian. The duo consisted of the brothers Karl Brunner (born on the 28th of February 1955 in Graz ), called Charly, and Johann Brunner (born on the 19th of March 1958 in Tamsweg ), called Jogl. They were regularly during 1992-2010 in The German, Austrian and Swiss charts with singles and albums. The two brothers started their musical career as part of the initial five-member band called Happy. Their debut album appeared in 1985. From 1987 to 1990 they were under the name Happy only as a duo. The committee responsible for the band A & R manager of their record company changed in 1991 with the publication of the Single “Because your heart you betrays” (composer: Alfons Weindorf , Lyricists: Bernd Meinunger ) the band name without authorization in Brunner & Brunner. At first not very pleased, the musicians today call this idea “the hour of this Lord.” In 1994 they together with Alfons Weindorf composed the 1994 Austrian Eurovision entry “Fur den frieden der welt” for Petra Frey. In the middle 90’s the South African brothers Christo and Cobus Snyman covered several Brunner & Brunner songs in Afrikaans. These days Charly is the duet partner of Simone who sang for Austria in the 1990 Eurovision song contest. A South African duo Sonskyn (Marli and Tertius) recently covered 4 of Charly & Simone songs in Afrikaans. I quite like their 1994 song IM NAMEN DER LIEBE.

Stefan Waggershausen (born 20 February 1949) is a German singer, composer, and songwriter. Waggershausen was born in Friedrichshafen, at Lake Constance. In 1974 he produced his first record as singer. In 1980, he had his first big success with the song Hallo Engel. Further songs were released, partly sung together with Ofra Haza and María Conchita Alonso. The biggest commercial success of Waggershausen’s career were the 1984 duet “Zu Nah Am Feuer” with Italian singer-songwriter Alice and the 1990 duet DAS ERSTE MAL TAT’S NOCH WEH with Viktor Lazlo. Viktor’s real name is Sonia Dronier. She was born on 7 October 1960 in Lorient, France. She is a French-Belgian singer of Grenadian and Martiniquan descent. She studied in Belgium, where she is primarily known. Her biggest hit was “Breathless” in 1987. That year she also hosted the Eurovision Song Contest 1987 held in Brussels. Dronier took her stage name from Paul Henreid’s character Victor Laszlo in the 1942 film Casablanca. She sings in French, English, Spanish and German.
Jahn Teigen (born 27 September 1949) is a Norwegian singer, musician and comedian. He represented Norway in the Eurovision Song Contest three times, in 1978, 1982 and 1983, and became known throughout Europe as a result of his 1978 performance in the contest, which won “nul points” (a zero score) for Norway. His given name was Jan, he added the silent H later. Since October 2006, he has resided in Sweden. Jahn Teigen also were a part of the Norwegian humour trio Prima Vera, with Herodes Falsk and Tom Mathisen, who released seven albums between 1977 and 1984. Most of their reportoire consists of popular hits with the most ridiculous lyrics. (This struck a chord with the Norwegian audience, since, at the time, to ensure airplay, English-language songs often were re-recorded with Norwegian lyrics.) Their breakthrough album, 1978s Brakara, went to number 1 in the charts and sold more than 100,000 copies, and includes Teigen’s spirited mock-Russian rendition of Mil Etter Mil, Zagra Znja Zagra. This 30-second version is the only available recording of the original arrangement; whether in English or Norwegian, Jahn Teigen’s serious recordings of the song feature more electric guitar. The serious version was also a huge hit, making Teigen one of the few performers ever to have success with both a serious version and a parody of the same song simultaneously. In 1978 in Paris Jahn Teigen made his first appearance on the Eurovision stage, performing the song Mil etter mil (Mile after mile), which became famous for not receiving a single point from any of the participating nations. This was the first occurrence of zero points with the new, and current, voting system of the Eurovision Song Contest. Despite the obvious lack of international recognition, the song gained a huge audience back in Norway where his countrymen embraced it. The single dominated the national singles chart for more than four months, being among the ten most-bought singles for no less than 19 consecutive weeks, for five of those also topping the chart for the most popular international hit of the nation. Still, having been in the nation’s spotlight for more than 30 years, this remains his most successful hit. Teigen’s runner-up single was called Jeg gi’kke opp, meaning I don’t give up, and his first album release the same year was just as self-ironic, as it was entitled This Year’s Loser. Jahn Teigen returned to the Eurovision stage in 1982 in Harrogate, United Kingdom, where he sang Adieu in duet with Anita Skorgan (to whom he was married 1984-1988 and with whom he has a daughter) ending up at 12th place. In 1983, in Munich, Germany, he went solo again, with Anita Skorgan and three other women as backing vocals, with the melody Do re mi, composed together with Anita Skorgan, which rendered him his finest position, a respectable 9th place. Jahn has taken part in the Norwegian national Eurovision final, called the Melodi Grand Prix, the most times, more precisely fourteen; 1974 (Hvor er du), 1975 (Kjærlighetens under), 1976 (Hastverk and Voodoo), 1978 (Mil etter mil), 1980 (Ja), 1982 (with Anita Skorgan Adieu), 1983 (Do Re Mi), 1988 (Glasnost), 1989 (Optimist), 1990 (Smil), 1993 (Jackpot), 1994 (Gi alt vi har), 1996 (as part of the duo To Tenorer with Ariel) and once again as late as in 2005 with My Heart Is My Home. In addition to this, Teigen has been the host of Melodi Grand Prix and provided the interval act of the Melodi Grand Prix on a number of occasions. He has also acted as commentator for Norwegian television in 1991 in Rome, together with Jon Andreassen.
Anita Skorgan (born 13 November 1958) is a Norwegian singer-songwriter. She was once married to Jahn Teigen, another successful Norwegian singer-songwriter; constantly in the tabloids the two were considered the first superstar celebrity couple in Norway. She represented Norway in the Eurovision Song Contest a total of five times: twice as a solo artist, once with Jahn Teigen, once as his backing singer in 1983, and also as Finn Kalvik’s backing singer in his 1981 performance. In 1977 in London she sang “Casanova”, finishing 14th. She had a bit more Eurovision success in Jerusalem two years later, lifting her song “Oliver” to 11th place. Back in England, she returned to the Eurovision stage with her then-husband Jahn Teigen to perform “Adieu”, which was voted to a 12th position in Harrogate. She and Jahn between them appeared at every single Eurovision Song Contest final from 1977 until 1983 except 1980, namely 6 times in 7 years. As her music career expanded, the demand for Anita Skorgan grew also. Before she knew it, she landed multiple appearances on the hit television show “Melodi Grand Prix” seven times between 1976 and 1985. On 17 November 2001 she appeared with her old classmates on the popular Norwegian TV show “Den store klassefesten” (The Big Class Reunion). Anita again represented Norway at the Eurovision Song Contest as a co-writer and backing singer in 1988, where the song “For vår jord” (For our earth) was placed fifth, sung by Karoline Krueger. She was also one of the writers of “You Used To Be Mine”, which came fifth in Norway’s Melodi Grand Prix 1999, the show which selected the country’s entry to the 1999 Eurovision Song Contest in Jerusalem, Israel. Anita together with Carola Haggkvist were backing-singers for Jahn Teigen in his entry in the Norwegian final in 1990 when he sang Smil. Anita Skorgan was the first choice for Hanne Krogh to be in Bobbysocks. Anita kind of wanted to be in the project, but Jahn Teigen did not think it was a good idea so she turned down the offer and Elisabeth Andreassen was chosen instead.
Kirill Babitzin (Kirka) was born in Helsinki in 1950 to a Russian emigrant family. He first got into music at the age of five when his grandmother gave him an accordion. He won an accordion competition at the age of ten, but soon ditched the squeezebox for rock and roll music. His first band was The Creatures, which he joined in 1964 assuming stage name Kirka. Kirka got his big break in 1967 when he joined the band The Islanders, originally led by would-be pop stalwart Ilkka “Danny” Lipsanen, and went on to become a household name in dance halls and festivals all over Finland. Kirka also recorded with Blues Section. His trademark was to be his powerful, throaty voice; simultaneously shrill and soulful, it is instantly recognizable to generations of Finnish music lovers. Several Babitzin siblings are established musicians in their own right. In 1978, Kirka released a duet album with sister Anna; the next year, another sister Marija (“Muska”) joined in. Kirka’s brother was popular rock musician Sammy Babitzin, who was killed in a car crash in 1973. Eerily, Sammy’s signature hit Daada daada tells a story of high-speed automotive cruising. Kirka represented Finland in Eurovision Song Contest 1984, finishing a strong ninth with the song Hengaillaan. Four years later, he got his greatest chart success with Surun pyyhit silmistäin, a melancholic pop-schlager. True to his rock’n’roll roots, however, he never fully appreciated this success, repeatedly citing 60’s breakthrough Hetki lyö (orig. Beat The Clock composed by Gottehrer-Stroll, a 1968 Elfstone B side) with The Islanders as his greatest achievement. Babitzin was awarded the Emma award for best male singer twice, first in 1984 and then in 2000. He died suddenly on 31 January 2007 at his home of undisclosed acute illness. His widow Paula Nummela is a jewellery designer.
Bardo was a male/female pop music duo (Sally Ann Triplett and Stephen Fischer) formed to represent the United Kingdom in the 1982 Eurovision Song Contest with the song “One Step Further”. Triplett, a children’s TV presenter (Crackerjack), was previously a member of the UK’s 1980 Eurovision act Prima Donna. Triplett is one of only four singers to have represented the UK in the Eurovision Song Contest twice; the others being Ronnie Carroll, Cliff Richard and Cheryl Baker of Bucks Fizz. Fischer was a singer and actor. On the day of the contest, Bardo were rated favourites to win by Ladbrokes bookmakers and were also rated highly by Terry Wogan. On the night, Bardo’s performance was criticized for nerves and for placing more emphasis on the dance routines than the singing. “One Step Further” (written by Simon Jefferies) came seventh in the competition, below expectations. The single however performed much better in the UK Singles Chart by reaching #2. Bardo were managed by Nichola Martin, the woman responsible for 1981 Eurovision victors Bucks Fizz, and produced by the same producer, Andy Hill. Signed to Epic Records, plans were in place to continue Bardo’s career, but subsequent singles, “Talking Out of Line” (written by Andy Hill and Nichola Martin) and “Hang On to Your Heart” (written by Ian Maidman) failed to chart. An album was planned but shelved due to the low sales of the singles. Triplett and Fischer had by this time become romantically linked and continued to stay together after the dissolution of Bardo. They also continued to perform together under a different name and spent some time in France. In 1990, Triplett gave birth to their son. They split up some years later. Triplett has since become a successful theatre actress and performer, most notably in the musicals Anything Goes (alongside John Barrowman) and Guys and Dolls. Fischer also continues to perform in the music business, mainly on stage and has performed as a pianist and vocalist with the Penguin Cafe Orchestra. Triplett and Fischer reunited to perform One Step Further on stage in London in 2010, wearing their original costumes, in order to raise money for charity as part of the West End Eurovision night. In 2013 a download-album was released on iTunes called The Best of Bardo. This featured the duo’s six A and B-sides as well as a number of newly created remixes.
Baccara was a female vocal duo formed in 1977 by Spanish artists Mayte Mateos (born 7 February 1951, Logroño) and María Mendiola (born 4 April 1952, Madrid). The pair rapidly achieved international success with their debut single “Yes Sir, I Can Boogie”, which reached number one across much of Europe. A successful follow-up single (“Sorry, I’m a Lady”) and European tour led to a number of album releases, numerous television appearances and the duo’s selection to represent Luxembourg in the Eurovision Song Contest 1978 with Parlez-vous francais? which reached 7th position. Despite a substantial following in Spain, Germany and Japan, by 1981 the duo’s distinctive blend of disco, pop and Spanish folk music was no longer fashionable, and by 1983 Mayte Mateos and María Mendiola were both working on solo projects. Achieving little success as solo artists, the two formed duos of their own: separate incarnations of the original Baccara appeared during the middle of the decade, with Mendiola fronting New Baccara and Mateos keeping the duo’s original name. During the 1990s New Baccara was renamed back to Baccara; as a consequence both Mateos and Mendiola now head different duos with the same name. Both principals have subsequently had prolonged but separate legacy careers based on nostalgia and their earlier fame. Mendiola’s Baccara has seen more international recognition, releasing a string of Hi-NRG club hits such as “Fantasy Boy” and “Touch Me” in the late 1980s and the later UK club hit “Wind Beneath My Wings”. Mateos’ Baccara has released few new recordings, but has remained in demand for television and live appearances in countries such as Spain and Germany where the original Baccara developed a loyal fan base, performing the duo’s back-catalogue and modernized versions of traditional Spanish songs. My personal favourites from Baccara are AY AY SAILOR and ONE, TWO, THREE, THAT’S LIFE.
Maywood is a Dutch pop group who was mostly popular in the 1970s and 1980s. The two members are Alice May (who wrote most of their songs) and Caren Wood.

They represented the Netherlands in the 1990 Eurovision Song Contest in Zagreb with the song “Ik wil alles met je delen” (I Want to Share Everything With You), which finished in fifteenth place. The English version of it is called No more winds to guide me.The group split up in 1995, but re-formed for a series of concerts in October 2013. They were also popular in South Africa with their biggest hit here being GIVE ME BACK MY LOVE.
Tomas Folke Jonas Ledin was born on the 25th of February 1952 in Rätan, Sweden. He is a Swedish singer, songwriter, guitarist, and producer. He grew up in the town of Sandviken, Sweden.

He also took part in a Swedish stage production of the musical Godspell in 1975 and performed in 140 concerts in the Swedish folkparks in 1977. In 1979, ABBA member Benny Andersson offered him a chance to record for the group’s company Polar Music. The singer joined ABBA on their 1979-1980 tour as a backing vocalist, but also got the opportunity to sing his own composition “Not Bad at All” during the show. Tomas Ledin also appeared on the ABBA Live DVD and on the Super Trouper Video.He won the Swedish Melodifestivalen in 1980 and represented Sweden in the Eurovision Song Contest that year with “Just nu!”. The song was a big hit in Scandinavia, and also in Greece and Portugal since Ledin recorded an English version, “Right Now!”.In 1982, he released the duet “Never Again” with Agnetha Fältskog of ABBA fame; the song reached number one in Chile (in its Spanish version “Ya nunca más”) and was popular across Europe. Ledin also composed “Take Good Care of Your Children”, which Fältskog released in 1983 on her album Wrap Your Arms Around Me. Another composition by the singer, “I Got Something”, was released by Anni-Frid Lyngstad of ABBA on her album Something’s Going On.

It was in 1976 with NOI LO RIVIVREMO DI NUOVO (placed 7th) and 1985 with MAGIC OH MAGIC (placed 7th as well). They also performed five times at Sanremo Music Festival, winning in 1984 with the song “Ci sarà”. The couple also shot seven films, based on their songs, between 1967 and 1984. The two separated and divorced in 1999, but reunited professionally in 2013. I have picked CANZONE BLU becasue I think the picture sleeve is really great.
Olsen Brothers (or in Danish as Brødrene Olsen) are a Danish rock/pop music duo, formed by brothers Jørgen (born 15 March 1950) and “Noller” (Niels, born 13 April 1954) Olsen who won the Eurovision Song Contest in 2000 with FLY ON THE WINGS OF LOVE. They formed their first band, The Kids, in 1965. The Kids warmed up for The Kinks in the K.B. Hallen in 1965 and released their first single in 1967. Both Jørgen and Niels Olsen participated in the musical Hair in the Cirkusbygningen in Copenhagen March 1971, and went on tour afterwards through Denmark, Norway and Sweden.

San Francisco was covered in Afrikaans and went platinum. Their winning song was covered in both Afrikaans and English but only the English cover did well. My favourite song from the Olsen brothers is WINGS OF AN EAGLE which came out in 1985 and was composed by people behind Goombay dance band.
SVENNE & LOTTA is a pop duo with Svenne Hedlund and Lotta Hedlund. They met in 1967, when (along with ABBA’s Benny Andersson) Svenne Hedlund was the vocalist in the band Hep Stars. Charlotte Walker, which was Lotta Hedlund’s name at that time, toured Sweden with the all-girl American trio The Sherrys. The Hep Stars’ phenomenal success within Scandinavia is well documented. Aiming to follow in ABBA’s victorious footsteps, Svenne and Lotta competed in the Swedish heats for theEurovision Song Contest, Melodifestivalen 1975, with the song “Bang en boomerang”, but finished 3rd. The song however became their breakthrough in Scandinavia, and the duo became especially popular in Denmark. In the early 1980s they even took the very unusual step of recording a Danish language version of their Swedish hit “När Dagen Försvinner” (a cover of Alan Sorrenti’s “Tu sei l’unica donna per me”), retitled “Når Dagen Forsvinder”.
Saskia & Serge are a Dutch vocal duo consisting of singer Trudy van den Berg (born 23 April 1947, Grootebroek) and singer-guitarist Ruud Schaap (born 22 March 1946, Den Helder). They are known for their participation in the 1971 Eurovision Song Contest, and have enjoyed a long and successful career in their native Netherlands, where they were awarded the title of Knights of the Order of Orange-Nassau in 2004. In 1970, Saskia & Serge took part in the Dutch Eurovision selection with “Het spinnewiel” (“The Spinning-Wheel”), which was narrowly and controversially beaten into second place. They returned in 1971, this time singing all six songs in the selection, and “Tijd” (“Time”) was chosen to go forward to the 16th Eurovision Song Contest, held in Dublin on 3 April. Although Saskia suffered a microphone malfunction at the start of the song, “Tijd” finished in joint sixth place of the 18 entries. In 1988 they released this song PERESTROJKA, sung in Russian – an absolute gem.
After coming last and even at times with zero points (1978 and 1981 came to mind), Norway surprised everybody in 1985 by winning Eurovision for the first time with BOBBYSOCKS and their song LA DET SWINGE. It is a really feel good song. Unfortunately for me any other song released by them did not have the same magic but maybe some do like DON’T LEAVE ME HERE WITHOUT YOU
After winning Eurovision in 1978, Israel did it again in 1979 with HALLELUJAH by Gali Atari with Milk and honey. The song is a classic and covered in many languages. in Afrikaans it is GEE MY VREDE. in Danish, they kept the title and the duo BJORN & JANNI brought it out. I am not sure if it was a hit. The Danish lyrics were written by Keld Heick.
Waterloo & Robinson is an Austrian duo, consisting of Johann Kreuzmayr (“Waterloo”) and Josef Krassnitzer (“Robinson”). The duo are most famous for representing Austria in the Eurovision Song Contest 1976, performing the song My Little World, where they recorded a 5th-place finish with 80 points. This song was also the first time that Austria had performed entirely in English at the Contest. More recently, the duo entered preselection to represent Austria at the 2004 Contest, losing out to boyband Tie Break. This caused some controversy when Waterloo & Robinson protested that Tie Break’s song (Du Bist) was longer than the 3 minutes allowed under Contest rules – clocking in at between 3:09 and 3:11 depending on the stereo used. The duo were quoted as saying “If skiers battle over the tenth part of a second, we must be allowed to go to court because of a time exceeding of 5%” as well as filing a legal challenge to Tie Break’s performance. This challenge was not upheld. My favourite my them is a song is called ICH DENK’ NOCH OFT AN MARIANNE which was composed by among others Rolf Soja who also composed several songs for Baccara.
