21 November – When the winds are changing


Chechil/Չեչիլ. You may be a little confused that I’ve picked a duet today. Which one of the two has a birthday? Is it the one wearing the battered hat or the bird skull? Decisions, decisions…

Today’s song actually opened the old show in 1994, around the time it wasn’t shifting from our friends in Ireland. Birthday girl Kajsa Marie Bergman Englund never actually sang as a soloist. In 1971 and 1972 she was part of a foursome – no, not Abba, that would be silly. And the clip I’ve picked has her with Roger Pontare. For the avoidance of doubt, Marie is the one in the battered hat.

Marie is 67 today.

Grattis på födelsedagen, Marie!
