This was the first Eurovision when there had been a tie for first place with four countries gaining 18 points. The problem was that at this time there was no rule for a tie, so all four countries were declared winner. This caused a problem with the medals given out to the winners as there were not enough for everyone. There was only enough for the singers and not the songwriters, who eventually got theirs after the contest. This whole event caused a number of countries to be quite angry and caused a lot of fuss.
Austria did not wish to enter this Eurovision because it did not want to send a singer to a country that was ruled by a "dictator", Francisco Franco was ruling Spain at the time. Salvador Dalí was responsible for the publicity of this Eurovision.
Liechtenstein wished to participate in this Eurovision and chose the song, "Un beau matin" (A Beautiful Morning). Unfortunatly as Liechtenstein had no broadcasting company at all and hence not a member of the EBU, they were not allowed to participate.
