Song: Een Speedldoos (A Musical Box)
Artist:  Annie Palmen
Music:  Pieter Goemans
Lyrics:  Pieter Goemans
Conductor:  Eric Robinson
Language: Dutch

The song describes the romance between a shepherd and a shepherdess, both of whom are figures on a musical box. Palmen explains that, even when the music was played, the duo could not move any closer to each other. After the supernatural intervention of “a fairy”, the two became a couple. This song gave the Netherlands the record of being the first country to do 2 years running receiving nul points. Poor Netherlands let’s see if things improve in the years to come.

Now we are onto Finland:
Song: Muistojeni Laulu (The Song Of My Memories)
Artist:  Laila Halme
