#BIRTHDAY: Anne-Karine Strøm from Norway is 70 today

#BIRTHDAY: Anne-Karine Strøm from Norway is 70 today

That thing when you think a song title hasn’t been used before, but in actual fact it has. Take a certain Azerbaijani singing in Rotterdam this year. She sang about a Dutch temptress. Maybe she didn’t know that that specific song title has been used before.

In 1976 when the circus was in The Hague, Norway sent today’s birthday girl Anne-Karine Strøm about the same temptress. Her frock was the complete opposite of what Mata Hari may have worn – I can’t imagine a gold lamé trouser suit being all the rage a century ago. Needless to say, Anne-Karine gave a memorable performance. But is it more memorable than what we saw in Rotterdam?
