10 July – An easy refrain that can be sung over and over

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

If there’s one country that you can rely on, it’s our friends in Denmark. Yes, they took a few years out in the 1960s and 1970s. But they’re a firm fixture, and even win from time to time.

Being present throws up a lot of jollity and this happened in spades in the 1980s. When we weren’t dazzled by Kirsten & Søren, today’s birthday girl Anne-Cathrine Herdorf and her chums Bandjo did so instead. It was good old safe Danish shuffly-pop that makes everyone smile. It made them smile so much that the juries placed it equal fifth in the biggest ever contest at the time. These days, it would have been fifth outright. But who did Ann-Cathrine and co tie with? The Netherlands of course – that country who generally have had a recent decent run of form.

Anne-Cathrine is 57 today.

Tillykke med fødselsdagen, Anne-Cathrine!
