#BIRTHDAY: Tuğba Önal from Turkey is 48 today

#BIRTHDAY: Tuğba Önal from Turkey is 48 today

Remember Turkey? They were the ones who could properly get away with that vert eastern sound. You know the ones – their preview videos always featured the Bosphorus and the Pamukkale thermal springs. And don’t forget the letter ‘i’ without the tittle.

As you’ll know, they’ve took their ball home after the contest in Baku in 2012, although rumours always abound that they’ll be back. Anyway, you’ll know the Turkish back catalogue was often a joy to behold, and today’s birthday girl Tuğba Önal was probably one of those that gave us a joyful song – opinions of course can differ. She performed the most eastern Turkish entry (until 2009 anyway) and scored one maximum which made up over 50% of her points total. Still, it gave us a good bop.
