Robert Cogoi Près De Ma Rivière
Près de ma rivière ("Near my river") was the Belgian entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1964, performed in French by Robert Cogoi.
The song is a ballad, with Cogoi describing a romantic moment with his lover near a river. He sings that "there was nothing left, nothing but my eyes in your eyes". Cogoi also recorded the song in English, German and Italian language versions, entitled, respectively, "My River of Memories", "Weit, da wo der Strom beginnt" and "Sulla mia riviera". The English version was however not released for nearly 30 years after the Contest.
At the close of voting, it had received 2 points, placing 10th in a field of 16.
