Für immer (Rock bottom) - Lynsey de Paul & Mike Moran

Lynsey de Paul and Mike Moran represented the UK at the Eurovision Song Contest in 1977 with 'Rock bottom'. Such was the popularity of the song that they decided to also record the song in German. 'Für immer' was only released in German-speaking territories.

As brave as their attempt was, the single did not chart. Which makes this single all the more interesting, because it wasn't pressed in huge quantities. It is therefore a great pleasure to have found a copy for a reasonable price.

My collection: 7" single no. 6105
Found: eBay, received March 24, 2019
Cost: 2 euro
Tracks: 'Für immer' / 'You shouldn't say that'

Rock bottom - Lynsey de Paul and Mike Moran

Mike Moran (born March 4, 1948) and Lynsey De Paul (born June 11, 1960) wrote the song 'Rock bottom' together and also got to perform it together on the 1977 Eurovision Song Contest, representing the United Kingdom. Although the song was in the lead when the juries started giving their points, the song finally came second, behind the winning song 'L'oiseau et l'enfant'.

De Paul and Moran went on to write a number of songs such as 'Let your body go downtown', a UK top 40 hit for the Martyn Ford Orchestra and the follow up 'Going to a disco' as well as the songs 'Without you' and 'Now and then'. Moran was also a wellknown songwriter in his own right, co-writing Freddie Mercury's 'Barcelona'.
