Pomme pomme pomme - Viettelyksen omena
Satu Markuksela recorded "Viettelyksen omena" (Apple of temptation) in 1971 to the lyrics by Chrisse Johansson. As far as I know, Satu recorded only this one single, with the cover of Jack Scott's "What In The World's Come Over You" on the flipside. The original apple song was called "Pomme, pomme, pomme" (Apple, apple, apple) was the Luxembourgish entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1971 in Dublin, performed in French by Luxembourgish singer Monique Melsen. Melsen was only the second native Luxembourgian to represent the country. The first one was Camillo Felgen in the 1960 and 1962 Contests. The song took the 13th slot in the final score. Finland's representative in that year was Markku Aro with Koivistolaiset performing "Tie uuteen päivään" and placing 8th.
