#BIRTHDAY: Barbara Dex from Belgium is 45 today

BIRTHDAY: Barbara Dex from Belgium is 45 today

You know sometimes when you look at song, and then realise it was in our favourite TV show over 25 years ago. It really makes you feel old.

I was bumbling along nicely until I noticed today’s song and its singer. Still a classic in several senses of the word. And then I saw it was performed in Ireland – remember contests were once held there. Today’s birthday girl Barbara Dex (née Barbara Maria Karel Deckx) was there in 1993, and became so famous that she spawned an award. Can you guess what it’s for? It could be the best-ever song to get three points (all from Germany) But it isn’t.
