Song of the day – We all have Eurovision songs that we love and listen to regularly. But then there are songs we might only remember because someone posts a link on Facebook or a Forum. We will shuffle through Eurovision history and present a random song every now and then during summer to bring back memories and give you the chance to discuss songs and years during the “Eurovision drought”. Our song of this day is Monaco’s Michèle Torr singing Une petite française (a little French girl) (1977).
Monaco has entered the Eurovision Song Contest 24 times. Michèle gave them a high finish… 4th place out of eighteen participants that year in London.
Michèle Torr, of French nationality, had previously represented Luxembourg in 1966 where she’s finished 10th out of 18 entries despite being the host country. She had also taken part in the French Eurovision pre-selection in 1970 with two songs, but had not progressed beyond the semi-final stage.
