If you’re a new viewer to our favourite TV show, you might not know today’s song, as it doesn’t even come from this century. There were some crackers in the 20th Century, so we’ll leave it to you to decide whether today’s is one.
For example, you never know when you might become a media star and be expected to know what happened in, say, 1975. Well, today’s birthday boy שלמה ארצי/Shlomo Artzi sang for Israel. They were novices in those days, and Shlomo didn’t do quite as well as the previous entrants from his country. But an 11th place today would be seen as a good result.
Shlomo is 73 today.
!יום הולדת שמח, שלמה
