7 December – He laughed at all the stupid little puppets dancing

Do you want fun and frolic on a Thursday? Do you want a wonderful world of whimsy? Do you want a song to stimulate the soul? Then look no further.

I’ve found one of a rare breed of triple entrants. A triple entrant who sang three times in five years. You may not have heard of her, but birthday girl Kirsti Sparboe did her stuff in the 1960s, when things were swinging and contests were in black & white. Her three attempts weren’t the most auspicious, as she finished 13th, 14th and 16th. Still, it takes guts to come back time after time. I’ve picked a nice little ditty, which she sang in a palace.

Kirsti is 77 today.

Gratulerer med dagen, Kirsti!
