If at first, you don’t succeed …

So, new year and back we go to 1992 … You remember 1992?, no?? Well there were contests in a different century too you know!

This is a story of many tries. Soleil, Soleil was submitted to French-speaking broadcaster, Télévision Suisse Romande (TSR), for their selection for the contest, it failed.

The enterprising composers translated the lyric into German, knocked on the doors of Schweizer Fernsehen and wouldn’t you know it? The plucky little lied won a golden ticket.

Only to be disqualified.

Enterprising?, yes … also very silly because the song is every kind of shite!

If you fancy contributing to the vault, get in touch. Nominate a song and say why you feel it deserves to be locked away forever.
