SECOND CHANCE RETRO / GUEST JURY HITS 1968

July 2021

53 years later ... it's 1968 and we are not in London, but the music from 1968 is still here for us. La, la, la, la, la, la....... 

To the left are the songs of Eurovision 1968 and below are the songs of Retro 1968 and Guest Jury Hits (GJH) 1968.

RETRO - Songs from Eurovision National Finals (public or internal to TV stations) of 1968 - getting a second chance at glory, selected by OGAE Clubs.

GJH - Hit songs from 1968 from countries that did not have a national final for ESC68 (or where a song no longer exists from that final) - a chance to hear and vote on other music from the year - also selected by OGAE Clubs. 

2 Contests - 2 Winners - a retrospective European/International musical heaven...

29 Juries will vote on the 26 songs from OGAE Clubs over the summer, with results in September. Romania, Luxembourg and Croatia are our Guest Juries this year - all other participating clubs have a song in one of the events. 

RESULT REVEAL - STARTS 30/09/2021

 

 

Give these songs a chance - they are 53 years old, so are a World away from the hyper-polished productions of today. ENJOY this retro step back in time.... Thank you to all the Jury co-ordinators!
