#BIRTHDAY: Jill Johnson from Sweden is 48 today

Hold on to your hats – it’s Sweden. You must remember them? Long country in northern Europe. A popular beat combo did well for them in the 1970s. Some fans take an unhealthy interest in the country’s fortunes.

Got it now? Well, with six wins Sweden is almost top of the charts. Generally their songs can hold their own, and they’ve generally had a good run for over 20 years. In 1998, they came 10th with this song by today’s birthday girl Jill Johnson – a good Swedish name if ever there was one. Her song was about a certain event in Paris the previous August, so meant a lot to a lot of people. She did manage the one maximum, but in a strong year her prayer about love was always going to face stiff competition.
