9 January – Still believing in the space between your arms

You must remember French. No, not Nicki, but the language. It used to dominate until not so long ago, when those little imps at the EBU allowed a free language rule again. It’s all English now, in a variety of perplexing accents. But we should remember that there are some excellent French songs out there, including the one from today’s birthday girl Lara (Crockaert) Fabian. She’s a little confused nationally, being Belgian-Canadian eh, and singing for Luxembourg. It just shows some people will do anything to sing in Eurovision.

The song starts at 1.24, unless you want to see some gratuitous cheese action in the postcard.

Lara is 47 today.

Bonne anniversaire, Lara!
