Songs about soldiers? How many more can you name?

It’s about time I showcased a song that comes from the glorious era of black & white. We don’t get enough of them, and some of you may not know that such a format existed. Or it’s something you didn’t believe. Whichever, I’ve delved and delved and found a video of a song from the mythical contest of 1964. It did take place in Copenhagen‘s fair city, deep in the Tivoli Gardens. Sadly, no full video of the contest exists, so songs from then don’t get aired very often. Imagine my surprise when I was able to find this on Y*u*u*e, which is a pleasant little song from France. It came a creditable fourth, although I’m sure you’ll agree that Gigliola Cinquetti‘s song was better.
