Saluting the ballad – E-11

In Uncategorized on May 15, 2011 at 1:05 pm

No mention of the result here!!!

While we await (well those of you who succeed in avoiding the result) the outcome of ESC 2011, lets us celebrate one of the great ballads of Eurovision history.

“Un jour, un enfant” (as detailled on Saturday’s show) was part of a four way tie in 1969.

In my humble opinion,  Frida Boccara‘s performance is breathtakingly beautiful.

How ever many times I hear it I tear up.

This plus belle chanson was used to stunning effect in the Eytan Fox movie Ba’al Ba’al Lev, .  Stand by to tear up again.
