Video Vault: Episode 27

Our latest Video Vault comes courtesy of our UK Marketer, Charlotte Rose. Take it away, Charlotte!

This week, we’re taking a trip back to 1981: the year of Bob Marley’s untimely death; the year MTV first launched in the US; the year Queen Bee Beyonce entered into the world and last but no means least, the year British pop group Bucks Fizz won the Eurovision Song Contest with Making Your Mind Up.

For the uninitiated, the Eurovision Song Contest is is an annual singing competition between European countries. However, for some, it is SO much more than that.

This Saturday marks the grand final of the 2014 contest and people up and down the continent will be attending Eurovision parties to celebrate/ commiserate/ cheer/ dance/ boo/ hiss as a host of popper than pop stars take to the stage.

The songs! The costumes! The dance routines! The supposed oh so apparent political undercurrent!

Happy Eurovision one and all!
