Of the five songs performed, "Puppet on a String" was Shaw's least favourite. In her own words "I hated it from the very first oompah to the final bang on the big bass drum. I was instinctively repelled by its sexist drivel and cuckoo-clock tune." [ citation needed ] She was disappointed when it was selected as the song she would use to represent the country, but it won the contest hands down, though it has always been felt that this was partly due to her existing popularity on the continent (she had recorded most of her hit singles in French, Italian, German and Spanish). As a result, "Puppet on a String" became her third Number One hit in the UK (a record for a female at the time) and was a big worldwide smash (the biggest selling single of the year in Germany). Shaw also recorded "Puppet on a String" in French ("Un tout petit pantin"), Italian ("La danza delle note"), Spanish ("Marionetas en la cuerda"), and German ("Wiedehopf im Mai"). [8]

“Oh, I look like rubbish,” she complains. “I’ve got no make up on, so you’ll have to take me bare-faced. I don’t do that very often, not when I’m being Sandie Shaw.” It is a revealing statement, suggesting the iconic pop star is a kind of alter ego. “I think of her as somebody public,” she elaborates. “It’s a different mode of being. There’s so many things I do that aren’t for public consumption.” And that, it transpires, includes her future. For Sandie Shaw is about to be retired.

Shaw, who was just 20 at the time, had been described by a judge as "a spoilt child" after she was identified as the other woman involved in the break-up of the marriage of a leading model and her TV executive husband.
