16 May – You, magician of the new times

We has a song from the 1970s yesterday, and we have another one today. What are the chances? It is a different year, so if you’re unfamiliar with that decade, we’re hopefully educating you.

In 1975, we went to the Nordic part of our fair continent, after some four-piece popular beat combo won in the southern UK. Our friends in France were regular players in that decade, so eagerly looking for their fifth win. especially after withdrawing at short notice in 1974. They sent today’s birthday girl Nicole Rieu. While she finished, one of France’s worst results after 20 contests, she did do better than the previous three French entrants. And she started a mini resurgence that resulted in a French win two years later.

Nicole is 73 today.

Bonne anniversaire, Nicole!
