Alain Barrière Elle était Si Jolie
"Elle était si jolie" (English translation: "She Was So Pretty") was the French entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1963, performed in French by Alain Barrière.
The song is a ballad, with Barrière reminiscing about a girl he used to know and how pretty she was. Her beauty was apparently so much that he could not love her. Barrière also recorded the song in German and Italian, as "Du gingst fort ohne Abschied" and "Era troppo carina" respectively.
At the close of voting, it had received 25 points, placing 5th in a field of 16.
