Si la vie est cadeau - Corinne Hermes

The 1983 Eurovision Song Contest was won with the song 'Si la vie est cadeau', performed by Corinne Hermes. She was born on November 16, 1961 and is a French singer. She represented Luxembourg on this occasion and finished just six points ahead of Israel's Ofra Haza with 'Hi'. The song received zero points from two of the twenty participating countries, but also received the maximum twelve points from five - mostly Mediterranean - countries.

Personally, I was not pleased with this winner. I preferred more eclectic tracks like Norway's 'Do re mi' by Jahn Teigen, Sweden's Carola with 'Främling' or even Spain's Remedios Amaya with 'Quien maneja mi barca?'. It took me 25 years to buy this single, and only because of my recent decision to want to buy all the Eurovision winners on single.

My collection: 7" single no. 3507
Found: Record Mania, Amsterdam, December 27, 2008
Cost: 1 euro
