La vie a 25 ans - Dani

In 1974, France did not participate in the Eurovision Song Contest. Still, here it is: a single of the 1974 entry by Dani. How come?

France had been going to enter the contest with the song 'La vie à vingt-cinq ans' by Dani, but they withdrew after the French President, Georges Pompidou, died during the week before the contest. Since his funeral was held the day of the contest, it was deemed inappropriate for the French to take part. Dani was seen by viewers in the audience at the point the French song should have been performed, after the Irish and before the German entry.

My collection: 7" single no. 5049
Found: Record fair, Utrecht, April 9, 2011
Cost: 1 euro
Tracks: 'La vie a 25 ans' / 'Pour que ça dure'
