And so we end 2018. Has it been a good year for you? Did you have Netta Barzilai as winning in Lisbon? Or were you more a fan of Ari Ólafsson? Either way, we've got a whole new year of lunacy to look forward to

So the year's final birthday? Well, today's birthday girl Siw Gunnel Margareta Malmkvist represented two different countries. In two different years, obviously. A few have done this, but A Swede singing for (West) Germany. years after she'd sung for her native Sweden? Siw must be unique. I've picked today's song because, a) it's in glorious colour, and b), it was the better placed of her two entries. Enjoy! And a Happy New Year.

Siw is 82 today.

Frohe Geburtstag/Grattis på födelsedagen, Siw!
