Iemand als jij - Barbara

Barbara Deckx was born on January 22, 1974 in Turnhout, Belgium. She represented Belgium during the 1993 Eurovision Song Contest with 'Iemand als jij', a simple but effective ballad. The song ended up on 25th place, the lowest placing of all contestants. This was arguably because of the self-made beige dress she wore, but of course there are suspicions that her being slightly overweight didn't help either. Obese people are commonly referred to as the scum of the earth, unfortunately.

Besides the Dutch and French versions of the song included on this 7" single, there are also versions in English and German.

My collection: 7" single no. 2977
Found: March 1, 1998
Cost: 125 Belgian Francs
Tracks: 'Iemand als jij' / 'Je n'ai jamais aimé quelqu'un comme toi'
