One of the biggest reasons to miss Luxembourg at the Eurovision Song Contest was their completely unpredictable nature. Quite often they sent in tidy, neat songs or solid ballads, but then again they also contributed more than a fair share of unexpected and experimental things.
One of my personal favourites among the Luxemburgish offerings is this totally wacko disco take on the world-famous childrens' song "Frère Jacques", originally an innocent little song about a sleepy monk oversleeping the service despite the sound of the monastery bells.
This version has a slightly modified message, as the young girl, whose body has been growing here and there, calls for the monk to wake up, not for service but rather to teach her a thing or two.
The surprisingly juicy lyrics include a list of men she does not wish to be touched by, before she puts on lipstick and perfume, waiting for the holy brother to come and take her by storm.
Not that the Vatican ever considered taking part in the ESC, but I doubt very much this would have been their twelve-pointer back in 1977. Not very catholic at all. But most entertaining.
