BIRTHDAY: Jørgen Olsen from Denmark is 69 today
I’ve given you a couple pf days of songs that didn’t quite make the grade in their respective contests. I’m changing that today with one that did slightly better.
So better in fact, this song actually won. It was much to everyone’s surprise I understand, as the betting odds were astronomical, and some people even made a bit of money out of it. The birthday boy is Jørgen Olsen (with the beard) singing with Noller, his kid brother. But what won it? I think it’s the split second when the lights went up and we had a beautiful key change. I think you’ll agree this was a great winner.
