Monaco was represented by French singer Minouche Barelli, with the song '"Boum-Badaboum", at the 1967 Eurovision Song Contest, which took place on 8 April in Vienna. The song was chosen internally by broadcaster TMC.


At Eurovision

On the night of the final Barelli performed 14th in the running order, following Norway and preceding Yugoslavia. "Boum-Badaboum"'s title leads to it frequently being categorised somewhat unjustly in the facile and childish 'ring-ding-bang-boom' school of Eurovision lyrics. However it is pointed out that the song's actual subject matter – Barelli's desire to be able to experience life to the full before the world is destroyed in a nuclear apocalypse – is anything but trivial. At the close of voting "Boum-Badaboum" had picked up 10 points (5 from Spain, 2 from Austria and 1 each from France, Sweden and Italy), placing Monaco 5th of the 17 entries.[1]
