Retro Saturday: Ketil Stokkan

Having won the 1985 Eurovision Song Contest, Norge sent Ketil Stokkan to defend their title in 1986 with "Romeo" which is still one of my favourite Eurovision entries ever. OK it's dated, but enjoy Ketil and his rolled-up sleeves (soooo 1980s!) at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EHxpc4tjpqQ and I defy you not to try out that little routine that goes with the song :))))

Aww,fabulous dancing!
I was born in 1986,it looks like a completely different century from that video :/ Well,it was,but still...
I'd never heard that song before,but I quite like it- there's not enough pop in Norwegian these days.Love the fact the presenter explained what the song was about as well- that'd never happen now!

Aah yes...they don't make Eurovision like that any more :((

Ketil came back and represented Norway in 1990 (I think) but that entry was quite frankly rubbish and ended up propping up the scoreboard, and was nowhere near as legendary as "Romeo"
