BIRTHDAY: Søren Bundgaard from Denmark is 63 today.
We often discuss the idea of a gimmick on here. Sometimes they work, like a job lot of waving cats. Sometimes not, in the case of a giant apricot stone. Of course, the gimmick doesn’t have to be inanimate.
Today’s birthday boy Søren Bundgaard tried three times, with his partner in crime Kirsten Siggard. Their appearances were always something to behold and became the stuff of legend. Most legendary is the performance I picked today, because the star of the song was not Mr Bundgaard, but his daughter Lea. It was an interesting touch and one that reinforces the view that 1985 was the best contest ever. Hot Eyes’ song was by no means a winner, but it’s still entertaining.
