Vivre (Guy Bonnet song)

"Vivre" (English translation: "Living") was the French entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1983, performed in French by Guy Bonnet.

The song was performed first (preceding Norway's Jahn Teigen with "Do Re Mi"). At the close of voting, it had received 56 points, placing 8th in a field of 20.

The song deals with the parting of two lovers, with one apparently slated to be executed by firing squad while the other continues to live.

The song was also recorded under the title "Vièure" in the minority Provençal language.

It was succeeded as French representative at the 1984 Contest by Annick Thoumazeau with "Autant d'amoureux que d'étoiles".
