A message to your heart - Samantha Janus

'A message to your heart' was written and composed by Paul Curtis and performed by the unknown singer Samantha Janus during the 1991 Eurovision Song Contest. Curtis wrote a socially conscious track about poverty and starvation, full of the usual cliches: we should all be very happy because we're living in 'paradise'. Yeah, right.

On the night of the Contest, Janus was dressed in a pink mini-dress, flanked by three women (Zoë Pico, Lucy Moreby, and Nicky Belsher) in white mini-dresses. Janus later commented that she thought her performance was 'ridiculous', because she was dressed in such a sexy outfit singing about starving children. The song finished tenth on the Contest and reached number 30 in the UK singles chart.
