◄ "Jennifer Jennings" (1969)   

"Viens l'oublier" ("Come to forget him") was the Belgian entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1970, performed in French by Jean Vallée.

It was the fifth song to be performed at the contest, following Yugoslavia's Eva Sršen with "Pridi, dala ti bom cvet" and preceding France's Guy Bonnet with "Marie-Blanche". The song received a total of 5 points, placing it eighth in a field of twelve.

The lyrics are from the perspective of a man who is counselling a woman to forget her past lover because he hurt her. It is unclear from the lyrics whether the singer wants to begin a relationship with the woman himself.

The next

Jean Vallée returned to the Contest in 1978, then with "L'amour ça fait chanter la vie", finishing as the runner-up behind Israel's "A-Ba-Ni-Bi".
