1 September – The glasses you’re wearing can colour the things that happen

You want a classic song? And I mean a classic song. A classic amongst classics. If you were around when this was performed live on that stage in sunny Lausanne, you will have been blown away by this performamce. More than the bouncy song that won, or the adult ballad that was runner-up, birthday girl Birthe Glady Kjær Hansen’s three minutes has become legendary.

After all, how many performances have used not one, but two conductors? How many performers owned the stage like Birthe? Best Danish song ever? Name me a better one. Go on, I dare you.

Birthe is 75 today.

Tillykke med fødselsdagen, Birthe!
