the previous year, now it was younger brother Bryan's turn to show off his vocal chords for all the world to see.
They are really rather impressive, his vocals. But still Eurovision keeps hanging on to a very old idea of entertainment.
This song could very well be taken from the soundtrack of an animated Disney short film in the early 1940's. Well groomed, extremely polished and almost unbearably cheerful. You just wait for a Mickey Mouse in black and white to enter the stage to do a jig.
Nobody had to feel challenged or disturbed or anything, which was probably just the point.
A deserved 2nd place?
Not really even though it is hard to judge fairly. In my mind several countries had more interesting entries on offer - Norway, Switzerland and Germany to name a few - while this one is pleasant, inoffensive and very easily forgotten.
