Eurovision, is an international song competition featuring participants representing primarily European countries. In 1978, Luxembourg’s entry into the Eurovision Contest was a song titled – “Parlez-vous français?” It was performed in French, by the Spanish disco duo – Baccara.
As far as the contest was concerned, they didn’t do so great – placing 7th in a field of 20 entries.
That said, it ended up being one of the year’s best-selling entries, reaching #8 in Sweden, #18 in Austria, #21 in West Germany and #30 on the Dutch singles charts!
What does this have to do with Match and Fable’s latest role?
Not much, really!
