1. France Gall - Poupée de cire, poupée de son  ESC 1965 Luxembourg

    The winner this year was the first non-ballad to win the contest. It became a huge hit, and was nominated as one of the fourteen best Eurovision songs of all time at the Congratulations special held in October 2005.

    The title can be translated as “Wax doll, Bran doll” (a bran doll being a floppy doll stuffed with bran or sawdust) or as “Doll of wax, Doll of sound” (with implications that Gall is a “singing doll”).
