Joan Amils arranged and conducted the 1982 Swiss entry to the Eurovision Song Contest, ‘Amour on t’aime’, which – although sung in French – has the feel of a German sing-along. It was penned by Alain Morisod and Pierre Alain and interpreted by Arlette Zola. The song finished third in the festival held in Harrogate behind West Germany (Nicole, ‘Ein bisschen Frieden’) and Israel (Avi Toledano, ‘Hora’).
In due course, a more extensive biography of Joan Amils will be published on this website
