4 October – Today in Jerusalem, tomorrow the world

There were contests in the 1970s you know. Yes, there were. Ten of them in fact, each more noteworthy than the last. So it’s only right that using this logic we pick a song from the most noteworthy – 1979. It was the first contest outside of Europe, and was one of those contests where the hosts won. And it came to pass that one of the songs was actually about the city where they were.

This song was by today’s birthday girl Christina Simon of Austria. Her look was unique, even for 1979. Christina is 62 today.

Frohe Geburtstag, Christina!
