Anette: The next Eurovision Highlight comes from the mid ’80s and involves a country that we won’t be seeing in Denmark 2014:

Highlights of Eurovision – A song to remember:

Entry: “Children, Kinder, Enfants” live ESC performanceofficial video
Performer: Margo, Franck Olivier, Diane Solomon, Ireen Sheer, Malcolm Roberts and Chris Roberts
Country: Luxembourg Luxembourg (entries & results) in the ESC
Year: 1985 ESC 1985: Participants & Scoreboard
Songwriters: Ralph Siegel (composer), Bernd Meinunger, Jean-Michel Bériat (writers)
Result: 13th place of 19

Anette: Nowadays, this is one of my personal favorites among the Luxemburgian entries, but back in 1985 I wasn’t overly impressed by it. Several countries send quite good songs that year but Norway had the best one and won the whole thing with “La Det Swinge” (Bobbysocks).
