Opera by Cetin Alp and the Short Waves (Turkey, 1983)
Not just weird lyrics, but one of the strangest Eurovision contenders of all time – Opera was an ode to the delights of the aria. It didn't make a lot of sense, but listeners were left in little doubt as to what it was about thanks to the seemingly random combination of opera-related lyrics, of which we have a sample here:
Opera, opera, opera, opera, opera / Opera, opera, opera, opera, Carmen, Aida / Opera, opera, tonight at the opera / Tosca, Figaro and Fidelio, listen to the arias
This entry ensured that Mozart et al. were spinning in their graves that night.
