It's not merely because, at a time when I wanted to dive headlong into the cauldron of creativity that was 60s pop, his Release Me kept The Beatles' Strawberry Fields Forever off the top of the charts.
You've been getting away with it all night, making carefully timed trips to the bar and the bog and answering an urgent call from a double glazing salesman centre in Mumbai.
Indeed, my only fond memories of the contest are from 1967, Nike Lebron Earned 23 when Sandie Shaw became the first British winner, with Puppet On A String, though I suspect that says less about the song and more about the effect that a short skirted, barefooted young woman can have on a prepubescent youth.
I could even forgive his ability to sprout mighty sideburns in the time it took to pour out one of his dollops of treacle on Top Of The Tops, while I could only dream of bumfluff.
He wasn't the only perpetrator of such a crime. The greatest, of course, was Joe Dolce's Shaddup You Face, which kept out Ultravox's Vienna in 1981, but Benny Hill's Ernie, The Fastest Milkman In The West denied T.

Then she's grabbing your hand and pleading "oh go on, love, just this once, you can hold me close so you don't look a prat" and not even you can stand being the only person seated and suddenly you're in the arms of a bewhiskered aunt. Or even worse, the wife.
Engelbert had a lot to answer for
for this annual tat fest. I'd rather stick pins in my eyelids than join the 120 million people worldwide who'll make it the highlight of their Saturday night viewing.
