Despite winning 5 times, this remains France's latest winner, when they took the crown in the UK. What's your opinion on this song?

I love it. I would've probably given it the win, too, though I almost love Luxembourg equally as much! :D

One of the best French entries ever 8-)

Totally deserved to win. Though, i liked a lot of songs that year too, but this one just touches me every time i hear it.

^ Totally agree. One of the best French entries ever :D

One of the best winners, absolutely. Though I must say I definitely prefer the studio version that you can find on the Swedish released ESC compilation CD 1956-1999 to the live version or other studio versions I've heard. It starts out so hauntingly beautiful and doesn't bombard you the way the other version does.

Instead of representing France, she could have represented Portugal and give the country at least one victory!!!

This one had to grow on me a bit, but now I like it.

Not a fan of this one. Maybe I'm biased but the UK should have won that year- the composition was great and the lyrics reflected the national mood at the time
