Anne-Marie David performing "Je Suis l'Enfant-Soleil", the French entry at the 1979 Eurovision Song Contest.

Quite simply one of my all-time favorites from the contest, a true masterpiece in the very best tradition of the French dramatic, richly atmospheric ballads of the 70s (it always reminded me of Joe Dassin's "L'Été Indien", even in strangely evoking a summer-y ambience) with an absolutely amazing arrangement and an excellent performance by 1973 winner Anne-Marie David. Excellent lyrics too, recounting the story of a passionate but condemned love affair. The soaring climax at the song's ending is, for me, one of the most emotionally powerful moments at the contest's history.

Yes, it's nearly impossible for me to talk about this song without starting to gush with praise... :-)
