Knock knock who's there - Mary Hopkin

Mary Hopkin represented the United Kingdom in the 1970 Eurovision Song Contest singing 'Knock Knock, Who's There?'. Despite being the pre-contest favourite, Hopkin came second to 'All Kinds of Everything', performed by Irish singer Dana. The singer expresses a long-held optimism at the prospect of love finally finding her. At the exact point that said optimism has faded, and she has resigned herself to not finding love and companionship, she hears a 'knock knock', which signifies love finally becoming attainable for her. Excited, she beckons love to 'come inside' and into her life.

"Knock Knock, Who's There?" was released as a single on 23 March 1970, reaching number 2 again in the UK singles chart. In the Netherlands, the single peaked at number 3.
