The Eurovision living legend


Channelling Princess Diana was his speciality

Mention of birthdays today reminds me there is another celebrant who was not on my earlier list - and one who is particularly appropriate for this week's Eurovision countdown - Mr Johnny Logan!

One-time-cute-boy Mr Logan is a bit of a legend in Song Contest terms - he is the most successful artist in its history, with three wins (two sung by him, and one he wrote for Linda Martin) for his home country (well, almost; he was actually born in Australia) Ireland.

As he blows out 62 candles today, no doubt the lyrics of the first of his triumphant triumvirate are ringing in his ears - What's Another Year? indeed.



I've been waiting such a long time,
looking out for you
But you're not here
What's another year?

I've been waking such a long time,
reaching out for you
But you're not near
What's another year?

What's another year
to someone who's lost everything that he owns?
What's another year
to someone who's getting used to being alone?

I've been praying such a long time
It's the only way to hide the fear
What's another year?

What's another year
to someone who's lost everything that he owns?
What's another year
to someone who's getting used to being alone?

I've been crying such a long time
With such a lot of pain in every tear

What's another year?
to someone who is getting used to being alone
What's another year?
For someone who is getting used to being alone
What's another year?
to someone who is getting used to being alone


Many happy returns, Johnny Logan (born 13th May 1954).
