    Already shared on the cover thread, but since I made myself a new Nativity scene, everytime I think of the the "Three Wise Men", I have this song in mind: "Sheila - Les Rois mages"



    It's weird that the English language does not refer to those characters as Magi, only "Wise Men".

    The song is a cover song of Middle of the Road's "Tweedle Dee Tweedle Dum" but the French songwriter radically changed the lyrics. Sheila also performed the same song in Spanish "Los Reyes Magos" and it became a #1 hit in Argentina, I think. That is how Middle of the Road re-wrote their own song in Spanish but with the Wise Men theme "Los Reyes Magos".

    I think Sheila gives a lot more energy to the song than Sally Carr, singer of Middle of the Road and it's justice that her song became a hit. Shame that her personal life did not match her exquisite talent!



    For sure I'm going to listen to those songs again at the Epiphany (6 January).  :D
