Lys Assia mit Refrain | SRF Musik

"Refrain" was the winning song of the Eurovision Song Contest 1956, co-written by Émile Gardaz and Géo Voumard, performed by Lys Assia representing Switzerland. It was the first-ever winner of the Contest, but not the first-ever performance by Switzerland. This apparent anomaly is due to the rules of the 1956 Contest allowing each competing country to be represented by two songs. Assia represented Switzerland singing both songs, and had previously performed "Das alte Karussell" in German.
