1. Vera Lynn – This Is My Prayer
Cover of: Gigliola Cinquetti – Non Ho L’Età
I was in shock when I discovered this one. The Forces’ Sweetheart, one of Britain’s finest singers of all time, did a Eurovision cover? When she was already insanely famous? Yes. The woman who received worldwide fame and applause for her song We’ll Meet Again heard Gigliola Cinquetti, sixteen years of age, sing Non Ho L’Età and thought: Let’s cover that one. And she does a great job at it. It’s classy, but oh so different from the original. I think it’s fair to say that this is indeed my favourite cover of the early Eurovision years.
