European Song Contest Winner (1965) France Gall died at 70

It wasn't rock music, but surprisingly fast for a song to win Europe's hearts in 1965, France Gall's "Poupée de cire, poupée de son".

France Gall - Poupée de cire, poupée de son


France Gall - Ella, Elle L'a

One good outcome of Brexit is that the inhabitants of Drizzle Island will never again have to endure the Eurovision Song Contest.

Right, they would have to live with the haunting memory of their 1967 win for eternity!

But do you really think, the British record industry would let the chance making a few pennies on the continent go down the drain?

Maybe this would become the new British national anthem. Surely Putin would love it! ;D

The pure BBC lol

Shaw who famously performed barefoot at the contest in Vienna, has revealed that the BBC wanted to fire her on the eve of the competition because they feared her risqué image following an adultery case would damage the nation's chances of winning.
Anyone who goes to a psychiatrist should have his head examined.

Sadly it turned out that it wasn't an homage to the jurors, that she just didn't want to wear her glasses and needed her feet to feel the microphone cable, to not get entangled in that.
