Lulu – The Artist
Lulu Kennedy-Cairns, OBE (born 1948), is a Scottish singer, actress, television personality and businesswoman. She is noted for her powerful singing voice.She is internationally known, but especially by UK audiences in the 1960s. Later in her career she had hits internationally with “To Sir with Love” from the 1967 film of the same name and with the title song to the 1974 James Bond film The Man with the Golden Gun. In European countries, she is also widely known for her Eurovision Song Contest 1969 winning entry “Boom Bang-a-Bang”, and in the UK for her 1964 hit “Shout”, which was performed at the closing ceremony of the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.
Boom Bang-A-Bang – The Song
‘Boom Bang-A-Bang’ is a song recorded by British singer Lulu. The song was written by Alan Moorhouse and Peter Warne. It is best known as the British winning entry at the Eurovision Song Contest 1969, held in Madrid. It was the joint winner with three other entries: Salomé singing “Vivo cantando” for Spain, Lenny Kuhr singing “De troubadour” for the Netherlands, and Frida Boccara singing “Un jour, un enfant” for France. The song was the second consecutive entry with a nonsense title to win the contest (after Massiel’s triumph in 1968 with “La La La”), and became infamous in the comedy world – most notably inspiring Monty Python’s Flying Circus to parody it with “Bing Tiddle-Tiddle Bong”
The Heart – The Shape
This record has been modelled into a a loving heart. The heart shape and its meaning has evolved over hundreds of years. Nowadays it means love but before the 13th and 14th centuries it was generally drawn for decorative purposes. People at that time thought of our hearts as books of memory and believed feelings for the beloved were somehow written on your heart.
The Eurovision Song Contest is an international song competition organised annually by the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) and featuring participants representing primarily European countries. Each participating country submits an original song to be performed on live television and radio, transmitted to national broadcasters via the EBU’s Eurovision and Euroradio networks, with competing countries then casting votes for the other countries’ songs to determine a winner.
