Tom Pillibi - Jacqueline Boyer

Jacqueline Boyer represented France at the Eurovision Song Contest in 1960 with 'Tom Pillibi', and I was glad to buy the single of that song ten years ago. Just as happy as I am now, because I have actually found a copy of the German version of that song! This single was actually made in Germany - and presumably released in that country as well.

The B-side is the German version of the song 'Si tu rencontres l'amour', but I have found no information whether Boyer recorded that song in French at all...

Found: Discogs.com, received July 12, 2019
Cost: 2 euro
Tracks: 'Tom Pillibi' / 'Grüss mir die Liebe'

Tom Pillibi - Jacqueline Boyer

Jacqueline Boyer was born as Jacqueline Docus on April 23, 1941. She represented France during the 1960 Eurovision Song Contest with 'Tom Pillibi', the winning song during that year's edition. This EP features four songs, with 'Tom Pillibi' being the first and most important one.

The lyric of the song describes Tom Pillibi who owns two castles, ships and has plenty of other women wanting to be with him. Then the singer admits that he has 'only one fault', being that he is 'such a liar' and that none of what she had previously said about him was true. Nonetheless, she sings, she still loves him.

My collection: 7" single no. 3711
Found: Marktplaats.nl, received May 15, 2009
Cost: 6 euro
Tracks: 'Tom Pillibi', 'Gouli gouli dou' / 'Le village de Sainte Bernadette', 'Toute jeune'
