What’s Another Year?

Johnny Logan circa 1980

I drew this “likeness” of Mr. Eurovision, Johnny Logan, in a blue moment at the end of last year.

His first Eurovision win in 1980, the tear-jerking song “What’s Another Year?” really struck a chord with me at that time. The gist of the song is about getting used to being alone, in love with someone who doesn’t want you...and the meaningless of time and life. Ok, ok, like most Eurovision songs, and early 80s songs, it's a bit awful.

At the time, I carried the sad sentiment of "what's another year?" with me. Now it's more like "meh, what's another year?" Since, while I certainly have blue moments, they are few and far between.

I truly was born under a lucky star.
